you have a project! but its a short one, thats cool! what are your plans?

I want to make one retro 70's style van out of one someday. I had a '66 split window, "cargo transporter" VWBus I regret selling years ago. I'd really like to find an early mid-engined chevy cargo van (not corvair) but AstroSafari is next on the list.

it's actually closer to being on the road than those pics let on...i have tons of new/new-to-me parts to put on, but i work 2 jobs and repair computers on the sides/evenings so finding time to put them on is tough...right now the replacement 4.3 is in, going to get the starter and alternator rebuilt before putting them back on...have to do the rear brakes and it should be roadworthy then...

plans include: fe-2 steering box, phantom grille with blacked out signals, window-less rear doors, some kind of custom cluster, going to put bedliner down on the entire floor then dynamat the inside, some kind of custom interior, some kind of stereo with coffin shaped speaker boxes, some kind of paint job...a lot is still up in the air plan-wise, i'll know it when it comes to me, but it'll be a nice daily-driver, and that's really all i wanted...

before i found this astro, i was wanting an early 60's econoline no-window van...but i was toying with the idea of a vw beetle or bus as well, i'd seen a split window cargo on airbags with porsche alloys and thought that was the coolest vw van i've ever seen...but my van was free, and no side windows so i couldn't pass it up...

OK its Hearse not Hearst, and thanks for not correcting me

well 80s Buicks were extream HotRods I spent time on the factory R&D team in the late 80s early 90s lots of storys.. and World Records! Hot rods indeed!


anyway.. forgot to suggest that instead of rebuilding the altenator and starter just get new lifetime waranteed ones if its a keeper. Im rolling on my 5th set of life time brake pads from pepboys and only had to purchase the first set. keep recipts.

so.. stupid question... what color will it be?

friend of mine has an all white econoline cargo van with ACME on the side (like in road runner cartoons)

there's a guy down the road that rebuilds them real cheap, and they last a while...he's done several starters and alternators on vehicles i've had and never had a problem with them...the last starter i got from the parts store here died after 6 months, so i'll go the rebuild route...as for colors, originally i was thinking black with some airbrushed reapers down the sides, i've thought of several other colors since then (blue,charcoal gray, silver), but i'm not sure what color i'll end up going with...if it's black it will be some time, since there's lots of little dents in it that would have to come out for sure, the white hides them alot...

the acme van sounds cool...just stay away from the rocket powered roller skates...
