Laying it out sounds bad ass, but scooby turbo? Heard bad stories about proper cooling issues.

Good luck with the project....looks like you have a bargin at 1.5 - mine cost me double that!

Just a quick question... Is it a Double Door or single?

I will be watching your progress with interest as I'm coming to the paint and build stage of my resto...(See 1965 Panel Project)

ouch, good rust there mate. now I see why you have the front clip....

I would love a project like this, but with a 14mnth old and a 3 month old, I am not allowed into the garage :( so it ould just sit there!

Nothing more satisfying that building something up exactly how you want it.

good luck, and keep the pics coming.

Shame you are not keeping it as van but fully understand your reasons, we all need to keep our other-halves on side while playing with our toys :roll:

What are your plans...

Are you going to keep the velvet green (?)

Engine upgrade?

Interior...?

Keep the photos coming :)
