It's better to have a functional VCVan instead of only a flashy paint job.
We are into nuts and bolts, not so much body and paint.
You can't do a righteous mechanical job if you don't have the parts.
1st generation VCVans have high headlights and a completely flat windshield.
2nd generation vans have lower headlights and a windshield with curved edges.
3rd generation vans have a longer front end with a hood access to the engine. We do not cover these "Classic" Chevy vans on this website.
We have enjoyed these vans for decades and own several. Over the years we have collected parts for them and learned much about how to repair them. We invite you to explore. If you already have a VCV, perhaps you'll find something of interest. This could either be in the technical articles, the pictures of other VCVans, or perhaps a part you'd like to purchase. If you do not own a VCVan, then first, my condolences because you are most likely not one of the 2%.
