Entry #1

While we might not have acquired the first vehicle, we will be #1!  We are going period correct in a customized Dodge Van (yes, the people your mother warned you about) with a big ‘ol 440 cubic inch engine backed by the dependable 727 transmission.  Got the vintage mags, a spare tire on the rear, and lots of shag carpeting.

As you can see, this is the extended wheelbase Tradesman 200 (3/4 ton) and we’ve got a massive hitch on the back.  We’ll be sure to bring the tow rope 😉

The van had been largely forgotten in a shop in Oklahoma City since 1992, so we trailered in back to RennsportKC for its makeover into an 80’s road machine all over again!

The gas tank has been drained, carb rebuilt, new plugs and wires, and she’s running good. Oh, and it needs tires.  Rolling White Letters Out!
