  • That’s my favorite van in the world. I would give a kidney to have that.

  • I grew up with those conversion vans; (Ford 87 and then 95 Econoline Vantages) We drove across most of North America several times in them!

  • My first car was a Chevy G20 conversion. Mine was a short wheelbase with the 4.3l V6. I got it because I was into model aircraft at the time, and it is was close to me and inexpensive. It was done by Mark III, and had a lovely satin white DuPont Imron finish. My 5'10" self could stand upright in it, it was like a big scary, tippy, comfy couch.

  • No.1 cylinder crapped out on the early ones. Thin casting made it hot & vulnerable. Don't know if this was worked out by the end of the run. Owned a '96 GMC Mark III hi-top. Shifting solenoids crapped out. Damn dealers would charge for a new transmission when they knew it was a $25. job. Hell to pay one day.

I do not exhagerate. Thanks so much for your time. God bless.

  • Your video inspired me to seek out my mom's Dodge Ram van. Turns out, her boyfriend (she died 14 years ago) held onto the van for me to get when I was old enough! I didn't know this, like we had discussed it but I didn't think he was really going to keep it and give it to me, but I reached out to him and he's like yeah, come get it! She's in really rough shape but I plan on getting her running and sorted out after the years of neglect. Lots of memories in that van. I bet one of my Disney movies is still in the VCR.

Listening to you is as if you have turned your radio on and someone left the volume up or someone loosened the lid on your salt shaker. Dump! Arrhhggggg! Ease into it boy. Take your manic drugs..

  • I took a sprinter cargo van and converted it into a 80s conversion Van. I could fit two rows of conversion van sized bucket seats and a three spot conversion bench/ bed in the back. But I could also do three rows of CV buckets in the back or replace rows 1 and two with two seater benches or Pull out row 2 and in rows 1 and two have CV three seat bench beds though getting into the back was a bit of a squeeze

Rare? ................Check. Going up in value? YES. The 1996 Ford Chariot Hightop with a 5.0 (302), is the rarest ford. The 1998 Chevy Chariot Hightop with a 350, is the rarest of the Chevy’s.
