    Hello all,
    Cosmetically, what condition would you say this van is in? And what would it cost to replace the passenger side triangle and the driver side windows?
    thanks.

    Cosmetically? Rough

    The two missing windows are the least of the issues with this van. I guess you have to call and ask if the motor runs, turns over, when was it last on the road....

    I like how he says it's restoreable. So are all the other "gonna fix it up someday" cars and trucks all over the country. That said, since it's in my town, I wish I had room for it.

    Hi,thanks
    Iím actually addressing cosmetics first because in another thread it was recommended to put bodywork first then mechanics. Something like that itís easier to work on the engine.
    thanks,

    Call him & ask for more detailed pictures of the rockers, wheel wells etc. A phone call would maybe get more info & if he'll give more pics of prone bad spots would answer a lot of questions.

    This picture tells a story....




    That big rust spot is in an unusual location. Looks to me like there was a bit of bondo there. Since that's not a common area to rust, I would suspect some damage occurred there.


    Ask for pictures of the cab floors. Some rust and pinholes are ok, but it's common for large areas to rust away. It's not a difficult repair, but it's something to take into consideration. No pics of the rear in the ad, maybe damage or rust there too.

    The price seems high to me. Non-running with some body issues shouldn't be more than $2k- at $3500 your only $1000 away from what I've seen decent drivers sell for.

    Glass for a 1st gen is not a big deal, any glass shop can cut safety glass to fit.

    Interesting that there are no holes for the bow-tie on the nose. Sure it may have been repainted long ago but why remove the bow-tie and fill in the holes, they left the Sportvan emblems in place.

    If it was reskinned back when fairly new, the replacement sheetmetal did not have holes punched. It was up to the bodyshop to drill holes for either the bowtie or GMC letters.

    My 68 suffered front end damage early in it's life, there are no holes for the bowtie.
