          Not sure what color yet -- and the paint wasn't good and needed to be redone -- along with some rust repair.

            I know you was going to paint it, that paint was old but it was cool scheme, and I ma surprised it had rust, that was a pretty clean body.

              It is in pretty good shape -- except the right quarter had a poor patch panel and a gallon of Bondo. The left side had a lot of Bondo covering a rust hole. Both will be properly repaired. The truck was in amazing shape for 46 years old -- but had many layers of paint. The problems found are common of the repairs made 30 years ago.

              We'll have that truck better than it ever was when finished. It will be completely torn apart, body repaired, properly primed, and painted to look better than new. It will also get a badass 408 small block and 727 transmission. I'd like to do a flame job on the front -- but need to investigate further.

                    Does anyone know who makes patch panels for A100 vans. There's a little more needing to be dealt with than the photos show and I want to do it right.

                          fix the bed. The whole truck will look like new.

                          Still could use some help on where to get patch panels
