Just needs a big 3 on the doors. Ha! Looks very nice going to put Corvette Pace car wheels on it?
You know that's a Chevy when you see it.
Looking GREAT!

I like the 'vette wheels, but I like the big & little look better 14X7 front & 15X8 rear

Thanks to all . . . . now for the interior (wiring, switches, etc) . . . probably all winter, if there is time before Spring, there will also be disc brakes & power steering . . . Yes, that is a scoop (sorta). Actually I just dropped the front of the stock louvered panel. I do have an air dam, once repaired and modified to fit the "scoop". All laid out at -http://www.angelfire.com/wv/joyrde/vanstuff/67gmc.html

Love the red line on it.

Is the black regular paint or rugged cover like bed liner? I have seen a few guys here with Broncos with black around the bottom they did that with and it really holds up I guess.

Those rims are sweet!!!

Beautiful!! makes we want to redo the interior job I did in 1976, it's still functional, but a little worn now.

Haven't seen a completely level door handle in a long time.

When you get to a point in a van project you feel comfortable working.This can be very therapeutic for both you and the van.
It looks to me like you are now in your comfort zone.
Have fun, keep the inspirational pictures coming.

I totally agree there Wookee! I am so out of sorts working on the suspension that I havent even touched the van in over a week. When I was working on the inside I was out there EVERY DAY!

Love that aux air in the back!
