1967 Chevrolet Stepvan - VonSkip

When I got this cool Stepvan project in, it came with a badly installed 6 Cyllinder Engine. I desided that one had to go.

Found a nice 350 CUI V8 to make the swap. 
This ment that to floors in front needed to get out, so that the engine could go out through the doors, seen it hasn't got a hood in front. 

 After Positioning the Engine & Trans, the trans seemed to give up, so lifted the damn thing out again

and went for a rebuilt one! You know... Building cars like this is always one step front, two steps behind...

Had to remake the gaspedal assembly, so decided to make a custom one... Also rebuilt all the brake parts... master cyllinder, lines, etc..

New rear shocks

Original it had 16.5"wheels but this size tires are hard to get overhere so I went with a Set of 16" from a heavy Chevy Van, Repainted the Wheels and put some New Classic Tires on.

I ran into this beautycase at a second hand store in my area, found that the battery would fit perfect so used it as a battery tray

Up next... exhaust, went for the big radius pipes for that loud sound

I put in a sleepingbench from a chevy van also... then did a new checkered floor and made a used caravan cushings to make an extra sit / sleep area.

This was the built in a nut shell,
Of course it took much more work to do everything... new brakes, wiring, rust repair, supspension, steering, etc... but didnt take the time to make pics of the complete process

Finnished this Stepvan project in the beginning of 2016,
Still own it today...  made a lot of (also long distance) trips with it,

Always Loved This / my 1967 Stepvan... Had great fun with it!
