    Difference between 1968 & 1969 G10's?

    Hey Guys, wondering if there are major differences in body panels & parts between the 68' & 69'. I just picked up a 68' panel van & a friend of mine has a 69' sportsvan he's parting out & is letting me get whatever I want out of. The 69' front doors look to have the lights while mine doesn't, are there any major changes between the 2 years? Any parts recommended to grab from the 69' for later use?

    If there no markers on the doors it's a 67, but almost everything should interchange. Some of the inter door parts are differant on the front doors but other than that they are the same 67-70

    As far as I've been able to tell, the only way to tell a '68 from a '69 or '70 is by the VIN#.

    Sort of off topic, but if they are parting that van out completely, my body shop is waiting on a couple pieces to finish my van.

    As far as I know, the only difference between a 68 and a 69 is a 69 is one year newer.

    I noticed that the windshield washer nozzles on a 68 are togeather and the 69 have one between wipers and one on the left side.
    that is the only difference I have seen.
