1967 p30

I just purchased a 1967 Chevrolet P30 StepVan. I would like to find out a little about it. The VIN is PS357F112300. I know it has a 6cyl. I am just not sure what size. I have looked online for information, however, it is limited. Does anyone have any input or advice as where to look???

Re: 1967 p30

Look at the passenger side of the motor. If the motor mount is between the fuel pump and distributor it's a 292. And if it isn't and behind the 2 it's a 230/250

Re: 1967 p30

What's your plans for it? Shop truck? RV to pull a trailer, to haul your pickup to shows?
My wife keeps on me about getting a shortie bus to turn into and RV, but the large step van would fill the bill nicely.

Re: 1967 p30

That thing is neat! I didn't realize '67s still had the earlier front end. I've been needing one like this. Damn food truck craze has their market messed up.

Re: 1967 p30

The P30 looks great, love the classic P-series vans. They are based on the C-series chassis components besides obvious changes like steering setup.

You cab still get the older P10's cheap if you keep your eyes open. We are building a '65 P10 & '63 P50 currently. The P10 will be an ice cream truck, while the P50 will be a mini-donut & cotton candy truck. www.thedonutdiner.ca is our website & has links to our FB & Instagram where we'll keep build albums.

What will you guys be using the P30 for?

Re: 1967 p30

We are going to use it as a carrier for out hot dog stand. We will paint it and fix it up in a way that doe not loose its character. It originally was built for a police department. We are not going to customize or cut up the beast. Just slap some cool paint on it and decorate the inside.

Re: 1967 p30

Going to live on as a hot dog truck. That's cool. Make sure you show us what you do. If not along the way, at least when it's done.

Re: 1967 p30

Yes, I do agree with the step van transformation to RV. I think that would be real cool.
I was originally settling for a Durango and enclosed trailer for the dog stand. This P30 came over the Craigslist airwaves, I had to scarf upon it. The nice thing about the hot dog business, the contents of the van will literally be unscathed. The day I picked the beast up, I got quite a few compliments on it and one person wanting to buy it. That made me pretty happy. I was a little skeptical at first. I know it, is by far, a better and cheaper purchase. No electronics, brains, modules, computers, and all the other unnecessary junk that new rigs have.
I will certainly show you the progress, along the way.
Thank you all for the advice and input. I truly appreciate it all.
