Ever looked at a 1980 Dodge conversion van and thought, “This bitch needs another axle.” You probably haven’t because you’re not on the level that the person who built this van was on when they did it. You weren’t there when they installed the 200 (approximately) linear feet of bench seating, the wooden table, or the sixteen miles of string lighting inside the passenger compartment, or as we think it is called, “the sin bin”. Chrome wheels, nice paint, the turning radius of the Queen Mary, what else could you want? Performance? Got it covered.
Power is being produced in buckets by a venerable 360ci Dodge V8 that has been hopped up with headers and dual exhaust. You’re probably looking at about 200hp to burn tires and move this vanimal down the road like a JATO rocket is strapped to the roof. More realistically, it will probably take somewhere between 20 and 30 seconds to reach highway speeds. Loaded with a bevy of beauties it may be longer.
We see the perfect buyer for this van as someone who has the drive and ambition to be a cult leader but no vehicle to attract and transport his flock with. With this six wheeled van you come out with a home, a bus, a chapel, and a dance club. When the sun goes down and you flip the switch on those accent lights, the party starts. Once that happens, all bets are off. It is part of the vanning lifestyle and owning this machine puts you at the epicenter of the vanning lifestyle.
There are only a couple of photos, but they tell the story perfectly.
