Post 88 van

I've got an 88 chevy C20 van. It runs great. I would like to remove the body and mount a modelT or A body. Maybe even a truck or sedan body. This is just an extra van I've got, so, I can cut it up. Does anybody know of anything that will fit on this chassis? Thanks.

Deffinatly not a model T or an A, that frame is waaaaaay to big, to wide and long. The only thing I can think of is to create a custom body yourself, maby a large woody or a widened and stretched Vicky. The Vicky body widend would look very cool. As drop on bodies go, I don't think there is anthing that is big enough of the vintage persuasion to just drop on the frame and look right. The only thing I can think of is maby a old suberban, but you'd be better off just letting it be if thats your only choice.

If you build it, it will run! Yank the tank! Cut that body up. Build a sweet running chassis. In the time you are doing that, I believe something will come along. Like Nike, Just Do It!!!
