For about the same price as parts only, on Wednesday I pick up my new to me van.
New van is 1986 one ton hightop van with Onan. generator,refrigerator, running water, low mileage, 351 Cleveland engine. $1500. Dependable.
It's actually going to be the same price or cheaper than replacing engine in my conversion van.
To all those who helped, I'll be repaying the loans one or two people a month and the pay it forward money as much as i can as fast as i can. I'm very grateful and humbled by all you wonderful people.
