    Hi Guys,
    here is another Guy from Germany. My Name is Tom and i recently bought a Dodge A108
    With a /6 Engine and in unattended condition
    So i took a little bit care of it, converted it to a 318 V8 and also convert to Discbrakes.
    So now i´m happy so far and hope to enjoy the Summer 2020!

    Thats how it looks as i bought it.
    There is somewhere here in the Forum a picture from it on a trailer. from 2009 or so...

    Hi Tom & welcome to the vintage vanners. Good to see that the 318 is doing well in your van. And the paint looks perfect. Love to see it live soon.

    Another one saved in Germany

    Funny, how small the world is. Smile

    Great English !

    16 windows, nice taxi
    (love the 'split' frnt 1).

    I am very surprised the government allowed you the engine swap. We;ve heard they R very strict.

    Tom is less than an hour's ride away from my place.

    Stuttgart on the other side is approx. 7-8h ride way down "in da south"... Smile

    And one more A100 (shorty window van) is going back and forth between actually Stuttgart and around Tom's place. Quite funny.

    Do you know if the number is split between van and pickup? Or even not including the pickups?
    Mine is registered as "LKW offener Kasten" (open panel truck, as a word-by-word-translation)

    Tom, vintage-vans.com does not resize images. They should have a max width of 640px, if I'm not fully mistaken.

    But, much more important: CONGRATS! I'd say that's a good number considering the huge front face of the van.
