    Prunella has seen the family grow steadily over the past 40+ years. Here is the Furnish family in 2005, at Al and his wife's 50th wedding anniversary:

    1st Design vs 2nd Design

    Well I have some loose tracking on different changes - I have a rough bracket of what I call "transition vans" for the Grill & Dog house

    Yeah, he has the Bigger grill, double latch lid, and the old-style shift linkage arm, pivot ball location (mounted on the frame vs. mounted below it)

    Two spot checks
    VIN 6987 does not have the weight. Mine 16879 did not.

    By luck is there any P/N stamped on the weight?
