    Cool New Guy

    This is such a great find! Just bought my 69 Sportvan 108 and loving her. Her engine is strong and is in pretty good shape body wise. I like her patina, but need to fill in a few rust spots(along the front windshield), luckily all windows are in and in good shape as well. I am anxious however to get her a new grille. Any advise of where and possibly who I can acquire this from? Heading to the famed Pomona Swapmeet next weekend! Nice to see the pictures of these beauties, b/c these are few and far between it seems. Glad to find this forum as well and mix with the likeminded.

    Welcome. Van Diego 69
    The front of these vans are one Big stamped out piece, If you want stock look .

    Welcome!

    Post some pics of the van. Can the grill be fixed?
    Could you fabricate a custom piece for there?

    It's an old ad but I think someone on this site knows a guy in Inland Empire who has Van parts for sale.

    Good luck at the Pomona swap, I love going up there.
