    Hi,
    just curious, probably the least of my worries, but
    where would one find a replacement headlight and how much would it cost to replace it?

    Hello again,
    Realistically what would you go with: buy a used engine and rebuild it or go with a new engine? And what would it cost? Do they even make new engines for earlies?

    Suspense...

    Like that sneaker company "Just do it"...think its converse.

    YOU need to make the decision.
    You can put any engine in there. 4,6,8, cyl. Chevy, them, or those guys.
    That is a super deal on a straight van with hard to find stuff.

    Its only a couple states away too.
    ...what would you do?
    Mike

    G10 guy this is how you miss out. You just have to make a move when the right one arrives. This is it. You wanted a window van. This is it. It's the best of the window vans- the deluxe version. And at a steal price. Even if you bought a crate engine you are paying less overall. Although a used 230/250 six is perfect. Buy it now ask questions later. I'm just seeing a deal and wishing I had the space for that van. It's not going to last. Start by making the call.

    G10 guy, I almost bought this today, but I have three vans already, so the reality is I can't buy another one. I talked to the seller. He has a title and everything. This is the best deal I've seen in a long time. If I were you, I would make this happen TODAY or its gonna be GONE. You will not find a better van. The van has no engine, but you can put an engine in, its not hard. I will give you a 250 short block for FREE if you want to build one up. The free 250 is in Tacoma, next city over from Gig Harbor, where this van is.

    To answer your question, a headlight is about $7 at autozone
