1979 Dodge CustomWOW!! Check it out!! This is a Original Dodge "Street-Van" built Custom by Dodge in the 70's, to compete with the Custom Vans being all the rave back in the 70's!
It's very rare, being a original one, Good shape for it's age. Came with the V8 Motor, Automatic Trans, FACTORY A/C (needs work but all there, P/S,P/B, really a good set up.
If you had the chance to see the "Jay Leno" Garage with the one: Jay Leno's Garage assess and caress with Donald Osborne
Be sure to watch this, (You may need to copy and paste it, from You tube) So fun and it will tell you the real Value of these vans, and how they have gone up. (Be sure to watch before you bid) The Van has had a New gas tank installed just a few years back, all new tires, less than 200 miles on them, and is in running driving condition for sure. It has been parked for the last 4 years in California, Now in Lake Havasu Arizona where it is Registered/Insured in my name, ready to go. If fixed up like the ones in the leno video, it is going to be a show winner for sure!
The back of the van is basically a Open Canvas, meaning ready for you to "Do-Your-thing" with it, add your own paneling,Carpet,Bed, maybe a Bar, custom stereo, the ideas of these van never ends!!
It has nice original High-back seats up front.
Now as for the overall condition, remember, it's a 41 year old van, so it will need some love. It runs, shifts, stops good, but I would go over it all before doing a long road trip with it. Being its a California original, rust is very minimal, I guess very common for it to rust around the front windshield area, and it did on the corners, and a small spot on front fenders, but overall, not rusty on the rain gutters, frame, rockers, floors, all in great shape! I really hope this van finds the right home. And maybe we will see it in the Next Hot rod Magazine cover shots when it's done?
I don't know when you will find another original Street van again for sale now days, especially one you can drive right off my driveway!!
