Who made this van that I saw in the swap meet at the last Goodguys? Check out the blue jean pocket door panels.

I actually would like to own this van. I would drive it restored, but I couldn't see spending the money to restore it. But if I hit the lotto tomorrow, I could see it in my stable.

If it's who I think it is, they also partnered w/AMC in the early-ish 70's to make a special edition Gremiln, and in the later 70's with AMC/Jeep to make a special edition CJ5.

I don't know about that, I do know they have done MANY, MANY cars over the years. Some very famous "builds" were done by them.

I believe that van was built by Van Goodies of Maywood, Illinois. As near as I can tell, there were 25 of them built and they were given away by Coca-Cola in the USA and Canada in a sweepstakes. The construction of these vans was featured in a series of articles in Hot Rod Magazine in '76-'77.....

You taught me something, I didn't know the name of the shop, I was just going with Hotrod magazine as the "building" being it was done in the mag. You got it, it's your floor.

This thread needs to 'return' - and since Joe didn't ask a question, I'll just restart it with another one of my round 'thingy' tools.

It's a common tool for those that need it. If you don't .... ! There is a 1/2" drive recess at my hand, the inner piece acts as an arbor and it's hollow, but that serves no purpose. They are reasonably priced for a specialty tool at ~15 bucks as of last week at Advance or Auto Zone, elsewhere, quite a bit more for a 'name brand'.



Happy guessing

Dave W

Da Tool

Hey Dave, That would be a tool to remove the bearing/hub retaining nut on a full floating axle rear end. My socket is similar for the Dana 60 under my motorhome.

Well Nolan, you know the 'penalty' for a correct answer

And yes, my F350 has a Dana 60
