1978 Dodge Ram Van
Very cool van, ust came across the country from Portland, regon......very clean almost no rust at all! The custom work was most likely done by a company called Van Royal back when the van was new, ut I have not been able to prove they in fact did it or not. Not sure if it's an original Street Van or not either, t's missing it's Tradesman emblems, ut Street Van decals would have been used up through the middle of the '78 model year. The Sherwood Green metallic paint on the van is original except the back door was re-sprayed and blended into the rear corners at one time. Not sure if the van ever had a completed interior or not, ut it has it's original orange crushed velour front captains chairs. The van is dry and does not leak, t also has an opening skylite in the roof, nd again, o leaks. The 360 V-8 runs well, nd does not skip or smoke, and has been re-built at one point, ut not sure how long ago. It has an aluminum hi-rise Weiand 4 barrel intake on it, hat has an adapter plate with a 2 barrel carb on it! I do not have the 4 barrel. I have no idea why, nd I don't have the 4 barrel carb, ut it does run ok this way. The tranny is very tight and shifts well, rakes work fine, ecent tune up, il change, ires, nd shorty duals with glass packs. It has lots of writing on the inside! A few hippies went nuts with some magic markers........it does provide some entertainment however! The carpet is fairly new and in very good shape. This van can be finished inside with some imagination. Think of it as a blank canvas. She also has a Class III tow package with hitch. There is a dent in the passenger side rear corner near the back bumper, nd a scrape and dent along the bottom of the driver's side mid body. This area is also the only area on or in the van that has any rust at all. Very little, own by where the exhaust exits. The original painted stripes are faded, ut will come back a bit with some polishing and a coat of wax. It's an old van that will require some cosmetic work, ut it's solid and very original and would be worth doing. Best part is that you can drive it while working on it. Any questions just message me. Can be picked up here in Ocala, lorida 34470. Must have a deposit via paypal within 24 hours of auction's close and must be paid for in cash in full within three days of auction's close. I can hold the van here for a week or so if you need time to arrange shipping. It can also be driven any where dependably.
