    Van size

    Hey,
    I think I started a thread with a similar subject.
    Are these two vans the same dimensions?
    To me the “67” looks smaller length-wise. Specifically the rear window of the “67”.

    First off, they are both 1st gen (64-66) and are both 90" wheelbase.

    Second, the angle of the pic makes one look longer.

    The answer is...

    Obviously there is a difference.
    Youre just testing us right?

    1964 to 1966 ALL 90" Wheelbase ALL 6cyl STOCK

    1967 to 1969/70 BOTH 90" and 108" Wheelbase optional V8 also.

    Widths are all the same. Why does it matter?
    Are you trying to get it to fit somewhere? Remember like she always says...

    "Size dont matter."
