Some other stuff had time to do. Want to Thank Tom(Millwright71) for all his Spare parts from his 66 Major Upgrade. The front springs,Oil pan on BB was Real close to ground. Old spings were flat,alot of clean up,paint,new bushing, new bands,new bushing in sway bar, alot of jacks,& jack stands later. New look, & pans not as close. Also Toms old gas tank,modified sender,Gotavan Dans SS straps.16 gal tank is a heck of alot better than 5 when you got a BB

Another pic of dash, just put new water temp & gas gauge in, couldn't get the SW ones to work. The person (or persons,or shop)who build the van back in late 70's-early80's did the bumpers & all the alum work on inside & outside. The bumpers are real thick alum

Few more pics of the 65 454 motor & HD rear end set up. Anybody looking for a BB van??? Got M1 brakets for disk brakes that go with it. Or for the right $$ I'll put them on.
