    Hi all!

    I'm Bruce, new here but old everywhere else.
    I just got my hands on a '69 G10 shorty. 50 years old and needing TLC, not hardly my first van but certainly the oldest. You might find me familiar as I'm on both the astro/safari sites.
    I'm looking for info and parts so you'll find me lurking around.
    thanks for having me.

    Lol! you'd think I was a newb or something,,,, When I posted here I thought I had this with the attachments,

    Different software than what I'm used to, anyhoo, I just picked up this little van. The pics are from the craigslist add. I got a handful of parts with it but I'll need more.
    I got a '65 parts van with it so my first job is to get that home and get out the plasma, I'll harvest everything I can whether it is of use to me or not and sweep the rest into the trash barrel.
    She's a runner w/ a rebuilt straight six, 3 on the tree.
    I'll gut the interior and start w/ good seats. I had one from one of my astro that is already in the drivers spot so I can roll around town and familiarize myself with her.
    The trip home was an hour ride at night that took me 90 minutes, I'll never complain about the sloppy steering or bad brakes in my safari again.
    The steering is not bad nor the brakes, just me being used to power everything and an automatic that I was a bit lost. Well, the driver's seat wasn't attached so that added to my anxiety but I've taken care of that item already.

    It was painted a few years back, over poor bodywork so I need as much of the '65 as I can get. Is there anyplace that sells body parts or am I on my own for this?

    I added no more pics but a paragraph or two in my second post, no text but the first line posts. My first post had the three pics and a paragraph about me.

    I used a quote from the first post but that was copy and paste from vanning.com. Maybe new posts need approval?
