Almost there

I'm on the final mechanical stages of my 77 sportsvan build. It's a old phone company van. I bought it for $600 with a fried motor.
I replaced the motor with a 350'holley carb,edelbrock intake, street cam,headman headers and flowmaster mufflers. It had a three speed and that was replaced with a 700R4 automatic overdrive tranny.
All of this was done with almost no money,I traded for the engine and tranny and did all the work in the dirt along side the house. One muffler and tail pipe to go.

Re: Almost there

While we're waiting for photos I'll add when first seeing this topic I thought it was the answer to that long standing question kids in the back seat ask, to wit: "are we there yet?"
