    I list the 78 as 4th gen because they changed the grill, head lights, bumpers ,dash,engine cover(added (kind of)glove box & I think tail lights(or made them bigger) Also they added another body line(mid way from bottom,to stop door dings) for strength. I owened a 72 & 78 Chevy vans 78 was the only "New" van I ever had. And it was the new Gen of Van when I got it??

    This is the bracket I used to mount the 2nd Gen passenger seat into the 1st Gen. It had no brackets, it had that fold up jump seat in there. I had to switch tracks to mount the drivers one in.
