• Club History

    The Vintage Chevy Van Club was formed in January of 1998 to help bring together owners and enthusiasts of the 1964-1970 Chevy and GMC vans. The club website debuted on January 28, 1998. It consisted of a few simple pages and an email link. The club newsletter, the Early Edition, soon followed. It was the primary connection between members for the first 2 years of the club.

    For the first time in over 10 years, you can visit the original site!
    The club message board opened on April 14, 2000. With it, the level of instant communication officially retired the club newsletter and rapidly began building a database of invaluable information; one that will serve to ensure the perpetuity of our vans. Since then, it has grown into the leading resource for information and the largest communal gathering for early vans of any make.

    The first official rally was held in Branson, MO from June 8-10, 2001, and was a huge success (by our 2001 expectations, at least). The VCVC Leftcoast rally followed on August 3-5, 2001, at Whistler's Bend, OR. A third rally, Taz's Vintage Chevy Van Fest, closed out the year in Waukegan, IL over the Labor Day Weekend, 2001. Taz's Vintage Chevy Van Fest has become a mainstay of the vanning season ever since.

    In 2007, the Vintage Chevy Van Club was awarded "Largest Participating Club" at the 35th Nats in Cortland, OH. Currently, the VCVC is arguably the largest active van club in the world.

    If the bowl is not getting full of fuel due to a clog in the needle and seat or a sticking float, it's possible that when you stop fast, the fuel sloshes

    Spindle question

    Seems like it. Although I suppose different bushings might accommodate 2 different king pin diameters in the same hole. But I recall the G10 bushings

    Spindle question

    The king pin kits are two different part numbers, G20 uses a larger pin. So, I would say the beam is different.

    Rare parts G20 kingpin set

    Spindle question

    Is the actual axle beam different on the 3/4 ton (6 lug) from the 1/2 ton (5 lug) vans? Maybe you (CanVanMan) could just swap out the steering knuckle/spindle
