    Greetings everyone, Brad here, Just picked up my '66 g10 panel that I sold 13 yrs ago. Tracked it down over a six month period thru 3 owners and finally got her home. Am amazed at all the help and info I have read here. I will try to post pictures once I figure out how.  I am going to need help with engine to tranny work . Has an automatic in it but it is apart from the engine. Van has a really good start to it, looks pretty much the same as it did when I sold it!(wasn't running) I look forward to talking with fellow vanners!New to the Vintage Vans website Img_0215

    Welcome, you've come to the right place! Wish I could track down my old van from the '70's, but I think its been made into something else by now like a washing machine....! Looks like a nice clean rust free body, you should have no trouble getting it roadworthy in no time! Start with a big list of what it needs...does it have the tranny hanger? most important part to an auto in these vans...I have a pitted, but usable rear door handle if you need it, I see in that pictures, its missing! Mines better than a nohandle....PM
