    If I remember right all the Early Chevy vans(64-70) rear ends are offset to make up for Motor being offset to passenger side
    So GM could make more room for Driver. few of mine did have arm rest or sun visor on pass side.
    A Lot of the Early Panel vans were mostly for in town delivery

    If your van leans right, other than the political implications,
    you may want to take a look at the shackles, bushings, and springs.

    Anyone for a Snipe hunt?

    The driveline is 1.5" (if I remember correctly) offset to the passenger side.
