    Seen a first gen in the Milliken pick a part in Ontario so cal today. All the doors were there, dash, windows ,front and rear axles, looked pretty straight sheet metal wise, just in case anyone was looking for anything, I don't know if the handles and things were original or not.

    Well you can only afford so many toys, one will be enough I hope, It is hard to keep all the things I have now going, and some are projects to finish now as it is. If only the lotto would hit dammit !!!!!!

    The saddest part of all this is pick a part only paid about $200.00 for it if that, I called one time to see what they would give for a 68 second gen for fun and they offered $160.00. If you wanted to buy that same van out of the yard it was $800.00 with motor and trans or $500.00 with out, I know I tried,I told them to pound sand.

    The van was there for a week before you posted it here. That picture had to one that one of our group took.
    It was a 65 & had a 6 cyl with 3-speed. Also had a 12-bolt rear.
    When we got there,the only things missing were the radiator,shroud,belly-pan,& doghouse lid.
    Between a few of us, we got the bumpers,swaybar,emblems,headlight rings,frt.turn sigs,& some misc. knobs.
    It really was in awesome shape & should have never ended up there.
    As of yesterday, March 28,2011, the van is gone. Brad
