You can Google Pick a Part Los Angeles and see the wrecking yards out there,,,,,you can call them and they will tell you if they they have a Chevy or GMC van in their yard that you can go get or one of the local wrecking yards out there may have one,,,,,

Thanks Donovan, i want to make a restoration, mine is 85 and fits all those years to 91 i think... the sliding door i have has windows and i want a cargo door without windows.

I will try those places you suggest.

Thanks a lot man

Man Thanks a lot!! bounce if you pass by any chance and see one of those please let me know.

I'm trying to keep original parts the most i can, in case of the bottom emergency i might have to modify the one i have with some sheet metal plate.

Thanks Donovan!
cheers

well,,,,,,,check that a 92 G3500 will fit your van,,,,,,,that place is where highways 67 and 78 meet,,,,,,and its sure is packed in there tightly,,,,,I had to crawl over 25 cars to get to it,,,,,,there is like 6 inches between cars,,,,,,so THEY NEED TO TAKE IT OFF,,,,,so if you can arrange the transaction,  I would go get it and hold it for you,,,,,,and maybe give it to the Vans at the Bay people to haul it back up to Los Angeles,,,,,,,,

Yes, they knew about you... they told me you went over yesterday.

Cool... if there is another choice great, its always good to have more than less.

I called almost every junk yard here in LA with no luck.

,,,,but did they tell you why the price went up as I drove away,,,,,,,,,,,,
let me check that 67 wrecking yard,,,,,,its a truck yard,,,,,,,,,
did you call the San Diego and Escondido Pick a Parts,,,,,,they should have an inventory of what is in their yards,,,,,and tell me what years they say fit and how much they would charge for a panel van sliding door,,,,,,,when do you think you are going to need a door,,,,,next week,,,,next month,,,,,next year,,,,,,when you retire and have time to finish the van?

LOL well... there is always something to finish on a project.

They didn't mention anything about the change of the price, but i told them i knew you and they didn't care... anyways... i might have to try those places that you mention by san Diego and Escondido...

So far 1985 to 1992 (maybe wider range) and i need to finish this project by August
