View Full Version : Looking for this 65 van

03-11-2007, 10:51 PM
It is a 65 van chopped top also with a vista cruiser top and it was painted black and it said PAZUZU on the side with a big green dragon 427 BBC powered was a centerfold between 80-82 I think it was street machine magazine, but unsure. Last I heard it might have been painted green and was around eastern Indiana or Ohio. Any information would be apprsciated.

Welcome to the club, hopefully someone will know where your Dad's van might be. I'm a West coast vanner, so not likely I would ever see it. But I do remember seeing pictures of it in my old vanning magazines, the name caught my eye and jolted my memory. It was a very cool, very radical, looking ride from what I remember. Good luck finding her again.

Thanks for the reply. The pictures I have are pretty old, but I will try to get some together and post some how. I am going to FL to race my NHRA superstock cavalier at the Gatornationls this week. When I get back I will post some pictures.

Columbus is 45 miles south of Indy. Is your van in good shape? Would like to see some pictures sometime.

I have an old magazine with 2 pics of it. I always wondered what happened to it.

There was a shortened chopped and unfortunatly striped Early that came up on Ebay a a while back.......

I hope that was not this van........

hey wookee, wasn't the van you're talking about from an old cover/article in truckin magazine. if it is the same one i am thinking about, it originally had the twin small block setup. it later showed up on ebay with no floor and shortened by one side door width. if that is the van you are talking about, i don't think it is the same one. john

The van that Wookee is talking about just got listed in our local Rag. It is in Fairmount IN now. I think they wanted 1000 bucks for it. It was listed in the IN/OH auto and RV.

Would you tel me what magazine that is in (month, date) so I can try and find one. That picture was taken after it was sold the first time. There is a earlier magazine with a big spread of it. Anyone knoe that one?

03-19-2007, 04:16 PM
I was wrong there is only one picture in that magazine, I may have another with the 2 picture article some where here.. Truckin magazine July 1981. nice article on making metal flares. The van was at Carl Caspers custom auto show in Louisville, KY
