From Germany a warm thank you for me being able to be here.
Although its not a van, I was able to acquire a '69 A100 pickup on our last day of our vacation in California in June. My lady asked me before that vacation to promise not to buy a car - my answer was "well, I cannot promise, but I will try hard". Didn't work out, though . I also own a '69 Charger (since 2011), but that car is just running without any problems that I felt it's time for a new project.
The truck shows a lot of patina on the outside as well as inside the cab (do you call it patina if it shows 45 years of real life wear?). Sheet metal is in pretty good condition considering age and most likely being (mis-)used as a work truck. Engine runs strong, electrical is working fine (after some corrections and enhancements...), floor pan is (of course) pretty much non-existant but frame rails are fine, axles are straight. Some work to be done (-> hanger for rear shackles of front spring driver side, power steering leaking, rear bumper to frame and both windshield windows). All that should be do-able.
Hope to get some input here as well as to give some input as I have done almost all work on the Charger so far successfully by myself.
Here are some pics and vids of the truck.
Happy to connect to other German A-Drivers. A friend owns a A100 van, there's another one in my hometown I don't know and we know of approx. 7 A100 in Germany. Parts are going to be expensive...
