Decided to start a new thread for this one as the old one was started when the van was still in transit from California.
I have now got it on the road and am using it so can comment on it better.
It has a very good 350/TH350 combo, Mustang2 front crossmember welded into the original chassis with boxing for strength. It has power brakes, discs on front and drums on rear, Chevy 5 lug stud pattern all round. It starts, runs and rives very well, handles great and gets off it's mark. It sounds fantastic and though somebody has installed some kind of sound system, I haven't even tried to see if it works as the sound of the exhaust is sweet music. It has after market gauges which all work, but the point of the speedo needle is broken off, but it's one of those with a tail on it so you can see what speed you are doing. It has electric wipers which work, but no screen washers. It has a vintage air system installed, well the dash part is installed with the vents, blower, matrix, etc, but the air con pump is in a box and hasn't been fitted yet. Air con is the last thing I need up here. No power steering, but it's not heavy and I prefer it this way as it gives better feel. All tyres are good, plenty of tread and not cracked. Seats are like brand new, no idea what they came from. There is no shifter indicator on it and the start inhibitor has been disconnected, so if we don't get that fixed, be aware!
Bodywise it's really good, the primer is where a few dings, etc have been straightened out and filled, but the whole van needs painted as it has suffered from laquer peel. The bottom inside of the driver door will need some attention where the seal fits on as it has some rust, but not on the outer skin. You will probably want to change those ugly assed lights set into the rear doors. The pics will show a cracked passenger door window, but this has now been replaced. Number plates have also been fitted, it is registered as 410 YUS.
Asking price on evilbay is £11999, so looking for sensible offers around that, and I'm not needing any trades or partial trades right now, would prefer to deal on straight cash. Definitely no swaps.
