Thanks Greg, by door pulls I think you are asking about the grab handles inside above the doors, and they were custom fabricated by  friend of mine.  Outside door handles are original and inside door handles are all repops.  I had lots of help on this project. Thank heaven for talented friends.

Hey Greg sorry for the super slow reply. I thought I answered you and I guess that was a brain fart. I got them a couple years ago and I couldn't find a receipt. They came from either Classic Industries or Brothers Truck. I remember they were listed as a generic truck part but not specifically for vans. Brothers Truck parts lists an ARP6700, but I would call them first to verify the screw spacing. Sorry I couldn't be more help. Jerry

Hi Guys, For those curious and for those looking for help I will be posting some detail shots and descriptions. Hope they are helpful.

The motor is 292 and the trans is 3 speed Manual w/ OD (yeh real old school). The 292 flywheel and bell housing are bigger so instead of cutting the body or cross member we just lowered the rear of the trans a bit. The motor mounts are in the stock location so that puts the motor at a slight angle but not enough to be a problem. Jerry

Need door hinge seals?



I didn't like the looks of the 2nd gen hinge gaskets that were available. They were wider than originals and really stood out on the light color paint. Solution? Black RTV and masking tape.  It was a PITA and took a long time but I am very happy with the results. If you don't count your personal time then you most likely saved about $50.  Jerry

Clifford intake manifold with offset carb spacer.

The Clifford manifold barely clears the dog house. It is made to accept a 4 barrel or in my case I chose to use the recommended Webber 38/38 2 barrel carb. Clifford supplies an adapter which you see bolted to the manifold.  To clear the  housing we machined an offset spacer which bolts to the adapter and moves the carb inboard enough to give plenty of clearance.

That is some really clean and detailed work in the engine area. Great looking van. Your hard work shows all around.
