Fellow Vanners,
I'm trying to dig up as much info on this van as possible, and there seems to be a lot of you that have little bits of info on it. Some of you have eluded to it belonging to a guy named Bob Moore, I'v also heard from some of you that remember seeing it in a Oakland Roadster Show back in the 70s. Still other have seen it at the King City Van-in. Still others have pictures of it in magazines. I would appreciate any and all information relating to this van, as I am going to try and keep it's history with it in the course of my restoration efforts.
Thanks,
Rich

Its says in an upcoming issue, so I would look for a 1976 feb,mar,apr or even june, you get the idea, from what I could see on the small pic in the mag, custom glove box, chromed out heater, gauge set with vinyl in front of dash, mirror where the interior trim would be, Beige carpet, And some goodrich's.
various places where vinyl was put like door step, and trim panel.

Hey Rich,

Once I get settled into the new house, I'm going to send you a photocopy I made for you of your van in the Super Vans book. There's a couple pages of info and several B/W photos. Right now, everything is packed up and I have no idea where it is.

I'll get with you on the t-shirts at that time as well (after April 1).
