    my 65 is a Chevy and I agree the GMC in the ad looks like a 66. Also have a 94 GMC Suburban, have had Chevy Burbs, the GMC is fancier and better I think. I do feel more superior driving it.

    Yep, you have to think backwards. When I built the pulley accellerator linkage system had to constantly remind myself it pulls the other way (btw-it works so smooth its dangerous with the 292). ...

    When swapping the 3-tree to TH 350 in 1988, just kept the existing column lever and shift mechanism and modified it to work on the 350 (can't remember what I did though). After 32 years and 90,000...

    OMG, ouch! I rest my case, trees are always bad for vans and cars, etc. Birds poop on the paint from them, trees drop sap on vans, they shade the sun allowing mold and mildew to develop, and they...

    welcome! very nice van, I see it has the requisite rocker crease on the passenger side. Happens the first time a new driver makes a right turn. My 65 had one when I bought it in 1970.
