About my G10 Van

I got this van from a buddy of mine in exchange for me purchasing and installing a rear axle into his 62 Buick Special. The van apparently was an ambulance in Pinellas County here in FL at one poit early in its life. Ive got a few holes in the roof i need to mend up from where the original light bar apparently was. The TH350 tranny that was in it took a dump on me and while i was in process of installing a 700R4 in its place, i noticed some substantial oil leaks and a couple weeping freeze plugs. I went ahead and pulled the 305 out, and am in the process of 'freshening' it up. I know it wont make much in the way of power, but this thing already lights up the tires at the drop of a hat!

For the motor i have purchased:

Summit dual plane intake manifold
Summit Cam/lifter package
Summit longtube headers

I plan on throwing a set of shaved heads on it. the bottom end is in great shape, so i'd just like to get a little out of it.. plus it will sound great now!

Future plans for the body include:

Satin black paint job
Extreme lowering
Some tailight work
Steel wheels with spun aluminum wheel covers

The whole plan for this van is to have a nice, reliable and bitchin rat rod that the wife and i can take out to local shows and just cruize whenever the need bites us.

Thanks for looking!
