I have seen the YouTube videos about that one and always admired it really cool rig. There is an old guy around the corner from me that had the same body style van but just cargo no 4x4 conversion and it was just white in really good shape. It was outside his garage for a few months and I always thought that body style was cool and it would be a neat conversion. A few months back I noticed it was in his garage and he had the door about 1/2 open. I could see him in there working on it and thought cool he is restoring it. I waited a few more weeks and then happened to be walking the dog and he was outside and I asked him about it. Here is where the shock and terror kicked in......He said "Yep bought it new and it just hit 200k miles and the motor blew up, not worth fixing anymore so I cut it all up and scrapped it!" He then opened his garage and all that was left was the grill and some frame pieces he was getting ready to take to the scrap yard.
I really kick myself for not asking him about it when it was outside, I probably could have bought it for 500.00!
Anyway congrats on your find that is a really really cool rig.

Thanks for all the good thoughts! I will admit though, I am not the cleanest Gen2 out there. When I was shopping for my van I came across a 1972 Ford Sportsmobile that was in even cleaner condition than my own. Shortly after I purchased mine I was contacted by the guy who ended up buying that one. Mike and I have since become van-bros and we'll be supporting each other during our builds. He is going to use my van as a template to do a gnarly 4x4 set-up and help me upgrade my own driveline this winter.

Here is some pics of his "72SMB":

More details about the interior coming soon It will be very similar to the RB50 but every finish and material was custom chosen to keep a retro island theme - all the way down to the vintage Hula Girl door pulls
