Oily as a sumbitch. Got it out though.

Possibly the original spark plugs?? only 41k on the clock
Also any one know why it would be this blue color??? I'm 99% sure this motor is stock and untouched since I've put my paws on it.

Pretty solid under here. All parts that come off from under the van will be powder coated.

A little bit at a time. I pulled the front and rear out the other night. Also had the starter and alt rebuilt as well, They came out great.

Thanks Vanny. I've gutted the van about 98% of the way so far, bagged n tagged evrything. my next step in the restoration is to hopefully either find a cheap rotisserie and or build a jig something like this.

I've been scratching to pain one GM blue for some odd reason.

Yes all the original '65 230's I have researched are blue.
There is a 1996 truck article I found that discusses it - his research supports the blue motor

Look at post N9 - That is from a 33k van I saw for sale

I finally got the chance to get what I needed from the donor van and Taz came over and picked up the rest of what I didn't need.
