OMG!!! Another 1st gen Chevy in Prairie Du Chien!!! This showed up about a week ago. Owned by a kid that his father gave to him before his father passed away. He wants to restore it. I have an extra rear window that i am going to give to him.[img:8f28]http://i35.servimg.com/u/f35/19/03/21/[url=http://www.servimg.com/view/19032129/333]29/july_210.jpg[/img][/url]

I snapped these while trying to safely past through a stop light, got the best I could. Notice it has a Fore Sale Sign in the front window! Hurry before it's gone!!! Rolling Eyes



I think the woman on the corner sign read "Why!? Why did you do that to that poor Van!?"



There is only one Aircraft that has a tail like that and that would be the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom - one beautiful aircraft!!! It doesn't do much for that Chevy Van though!!!

Well, this Arizona van is clearly using stealth technology to avoid police radar! Must have been inspired by this specially-painted Stealth Fighter, the last one built.

Someone at the auto swap told me about a Van in Chula Vista last monday, he said it was east of third on Oxford. I just happened to be over there this morning and went looking for it.

Obviously a second gen. and possibly a camper interior.
Looks like it has been sitting for some time, flat tires etc.
The house looks abandoned, even the mail box is gone. Also looks like someone had a bunch of stuff stored way back on the property.(corvette,boats,equiptment,etc.) Maybe the neighbor knows something but nobody was home.
I need another Van like a hole in the head but I will go by in the afternoon sometime and see if I can get "The Deal"

I was on my way home yesterday and "Seen a Van" I stopped to take some pictures and the owner came out, we talked for a while. He lives in L.A. and his parents live here.
It is his daily driver and he has been doing all the custom work himself.




It was hard to get good pictures because of the shadows.

You're NOT going to find another one like that!

UNIQUE, it looks like it's preparing for take-off!!!

Looks like he's putting a lot of himself into that project and making it his own...All the more power to him! I wonder what those mirrors came off of scratch

That 2nd Gen looks really straight. And I'd say that's original paint. My van had that surface rust/white paint look. What did the other side look like? Typical cargo van? Don, did you get a look inside? Any vintage camping furniture in there?

And that Ford - Wow! I'm always for trying something new, and this guy is certainly doing that! I've always loved cars with hideaway headlights but this is the first time I've seen an attempt to add them to a van. (Seems to have hidden turn signals too!) No doors in the back, and maybe on big side cargo door.
And that mod to the windshield is very unique. It's kind of the opposite of chopping the roof instead of lowering the roof he, in effect, raised the belt line! Which is fine have you ever noticed that we pretty much only look through the top 1/3 of our windshields? 1/4 if you've installed taller seats from some other car!

Yesterday I spotted a van while cruzin through town.



Nice camper with the fold away top, very original '65.

I saw this E-Pick up on the way to do something today. Didn't see it until I was going back for the second trip to do something again. Seen in Chandler AZ.

I'm always keeping my eyes open for early vans that Don has not already found. I'm quite sure he hasn't seen this one! Very Happy

Spotted this Econoline SuperVan TravelWagon on the Big Island of Hawaii when I was there over the holidays. Near Ho'okena Beach, a couple houses down from a campgrounds I stayed at. It's got rust from the salty air but the turtle top is holding up well. I was wondering how many earlies there could possibly be on the Hawaiian Islands...





A woman yelled out "What do you want?!" from the backyard. I quickly took my photos and shouted back, "Vintage dash vans dot com!" and got out of there.
