Re: Any van love?

Nice van! And it's a Explorer conversion to just like my Safari. They make the best conversions out of all of them in my opinion. Also if you don't mind could you tell me how you mounted your TV in your van and pics of it installed would be nice to if possible.

Saw the orange one today on 2nd and PCH. There's no better place for slotted mags and side pipes than on an old van!

Re: Any van love?

I have this strange urge to get one like the orange one and install shag carpet and a waterbed and a disco ball, seems fun

Re: Any van love?

I had to move the TV forwrard so the mid passengers could see it clearly. This meant basicly rebuilding the front of the cabinet. I left the very outside edges alone so I knew it would fit back into place. The TV also has to be tilted down so I cut some blocks with the right angle and attatched some metal straps to the TV that could be screwed to the blocks. They cant be seen once installed.

Bringing this back from the dead.. $2,500 in Tennessee... It'd make a killer swap meet van.

Re: Any van love?

Picked this up earlier this year. Almost completely rust free, cool 70's survivor with cool 70's interior, camper hauler. I haven't had any time this summer to use it, so unfortunately I probably have to sell it to fund 4x4 project.

Re: Any van love?

Very cool.

But what would it be used for? Mainly just camping? Can't see myself wanting to use something like that around the house much lol. Even at party times

Re: Any van love?

Here is my 83 Chevy camping van, the top raises up just like the van in post #11. It comes complete with tuck and roll interior, shag carpet, special seat fabric and the mighty 305 engine. I love the thing but is a pain in the but to work on, not to mention the under powered 305. The carb needs rebuilt and valve covers replaced.............another project
