The Loser Machine Shomper Hauler

Few know of the gem that I picked up two months ago. I'd dreamt of owning a mid-sixties van for awhile now but never thought it would be a reality. Well it is now, and its pretty much the closest thing you can get to the experience of riding a motorcycle while driving a car; its loud, you need massive forearms to handle the manual steering, and it doesnt have seat belts. Its just slightly sketchy.

This thing was pretty beat when I picked it up. Was sitting in a field in the middle of UT without so much as a touch of a finger for the last 10 years. I trailered it home, worked on it for two days, and now she is a daily driver. I can fit two bikes in the back no problem and it has a natural heater in between the seats(the motor) for the Winter.

If anyone knows of any parts connections please let me know.

68 Dodge A100
318 5.7L V8
3 Speed Auto





Thanks to all the sponsors above.

It hurts that there is no Grim sticker on that windshield. That's the last time I let you fowl up my dumpster. It's over between us.

the 318 used the same parts as the plymouth valiant and the dodge dart around that time.
