    I just baught a 64' G van. Drove fine when loading onto the trailer. Was jammed in gear when I went to unload. I kinda forced it into nuetral and now I have no reverse, first or third. Only second. Has this happened to anyone and do you have sugestions on what steps I should take next?? Evil or Very Mad

    If you forced the shift lever, and now you don't have 1st and reverse, chances are pretty good that you broke the ball end off the shift lever in the column. But go and reset the trans back into neutral by removing the rod at the trans lever and put both of them back into neutral. And then look and see if the bushings are worn out on the rods at the trans and up inside the front grille.

    My van is a 65 not a 64.WTF? Duh. I took a look at the linkage. I busted the bracket that attaches the rod to the trans selector knob. It was cracked to begin with. A buddy of mine is welding it for me. I was able to rig it up with a small pair of vice grips, a 3/8 beam clamp and 5 or six wire ties just so I could drive it around. Very Happy

    Let us know how it goes Brian. Did you still get the A-100 too? Congrats on the purchase!

    Once you get her on the road, we'll have to have an Old Line Vanners meet somewhere.

    I really wanted the A van but the cost of getting it here in a reasonable amount of time was nearly what I paid for the van. I got a cheaper quote but they couldn't get it here till the end of December.I was going to drive my truck out and tow it back but once I figured gas, trailer rental and expences , I was right back at paying almost double for the van. I bought this G in PA. Picked it up the same night. I drove it to work today. Ran really good. Even at highway speed.

    Was wondering who bought this van. Glad a real vanner got it, someone who will take care of it. They all have issues as we know. Looks pretty good on the outside from the pic...
