    1st gen parts needed to get my little guy back on the road!

    I need bumpers, front signal lights, wiper arms and most importantly a steering column! I have the steering box and inner shaft but need the outer housing and wheel assembly.

    The he van has been off the road for a lot of years... Buts she's all tuned up and ready to get back out there!

    If anyone has any knowledge of the history of the van please do let me know, I'd like to trace it back.

    cheers

    I'd like to see more pictures, the chop top looks cool and there's a heavy slant on those back doors,(does it have doors?) Cool Project.

    It it does have rear doors and they've got a mean forward slope. Far as I can tell it was rebuilt and painted in 89 in Winnipeg. But it was chopped before then and I'd love to know who did it.

    Hey man, that was my buddy Emery you were chatting to the other day. He did get the A100 going and is moving it over to Salt Spring pretty soon here. Those seats you sent with him are perfect in the chop top! My girlfriend is an upholsterer and can wait to get started on giving them fresh new foam and leather! The steering box is going to help out tons too. Thank you very much for your generosity and helping us get this van back out there.

    Its been a ton of work to get it to where it is now, but she's running like a top! I'll post some new photos soon here.

    Cheers
    Brendon
