    Hi Everyone, i'm working on the lights on my '67 and about to order some new parts for the taillights and. headlights.  I know there are lots of parts that swap over from van to truck and vice versa.  Somebody has probably done this, and I'm pretty sure it works but just asking in case I'm about to waste time and $$:

    Do these '67 pickup parts fit the '67 G-10 van?

    Items 15 and 16 here:

    And all items here:

    Thanks in advance!  

    Here's a pic of the lights i have working so far:

    Backup light lenses came from the 67-72 Suburban parts bin... Taillight lenses came from the same years of Fleetside pickups...Side Marker lights can be sourced from 67-72 OR any year van up to 95...

    Thanks Don! Ordered the stuff last night because it looked exactly the same in the picture... Now if only there was a catalog called LMC Van!

    I've written to them and suggested just that..... I also suggested that they could just add a van of the same era to the cover and identify the parts that they already sell as fitting the vans.....
    I got a clueless condescending reply from an obviously junior customer service guy basically that they aren't interested in the extra sales that would be generated....
    Think about it though.....If finding parts was easy, restoring these vans could become too pricey as they became more popular....We are already running out of good sheetmetal.....
