Digz the part came from OR

Many might not know but Ken is a Machinist here in MI, and he's picky (I mean that in a good way). The parts he has welded in fit so well there hardly a gap for the welding

Chris, do you need a stock seat bracket?( that round tube thing) I think I have one if it doesn't have to be custom.

yes I have the tube bracket and already mocked the seats with it. This van won't be as custom as the 64. mostly stock for the most part. Sure I'll have to do some custom ideas I have, but nothing out there

I like your 1st Gen Chris! Looking good. Nice work on the body. It really helps having donor metal.

I also picked up an NOS gas pedal. The little things like that are fun!

Those "High Torque 250" stickers are pretty easy to find new. I see them on many air cleaners like that but they say they are for the valve cover. Makes more sense to me on the air cleaner.
