    New guy here.
    First off wanted to Thank all you guys in advance. I been reading old post for some time now, It has really helped me out alot. I really love Riding in this classic, and people seem to love it too with all the thumbs up i get.
    Side note. I am looking for a Stock air cleaner assembly. If anyone can help. Picked this Van up one month ago.
    Thanks Dan

    Looks like you are running a v8 with a Carter 2bbl BBD carb.
    Any mid-60s car air cleaner that fits these should work.
    Also look at trucks up through the mid-80s.

    A108, love that matte paint job, did you do it yourself?

    My Van was painted with an epoxy primer and it faded quickly and oxidized poorly.

    We live in total different geographics but any tips or advice would be appreciated.

    Hello, Thanks
    I bought the van this way. I believe flat black primer is all it is. Looks pretty good.
