1977 Dodge B200 TradesmanOutstanding original condition conversion van done by Courtesy Cruisers of Loves Park, IL. Has been a southern vehicle it's entire life and I believe I am the third owner.

Exterior is an 8 out of 10 with a small rust area in front of right rear tire lip area being it's biggest issue. Approximate size is 1.5 x 5 inches not very noticeable. Not full on rot but more than just surface rust. Body and paint are still excellent for their age. Glass is perfect and most likely still the original windshield.
Interior is a 8 out of 10 with the biggest issue being some wear on the driver's seat. No tears or rips but I do have covers on them to prevent further wear. Carpet has held up well. Cooler has a crack in it but most people would replace it with a modern refrigerator anyway.
Drivetrain is a 9 of 10. Starts, runs, stops, drives, shifts excellent! Does need a new breather housing due to a previous owner.
Undercarriage is a 9 of 10. Very clean with the only small occasions of surface rust at the very rear of vehicle.
We just completed the 2017 Hot Rod Power Tour in this van and it was a big hit! We did about 2,250 miles and it didn't use a drop of oil or any coolant. Performed beautifully especially considering it is an basically untouched 40 year old vehicle. Temperature never exceeded 190 degrees!It has also won awards at car shows for it's originality and uniqueness from the likes of Dennis Gage who spent about 10 minutes crawling through it and gushing about the condition it is in!
Only known mechanical issues are in the heat and air systems. It needs a new heater control valve cable and the A/C has had all components replaced but it still has moments where it doesn't blow cold air since it was converted to 134A. My opinion, is that it needs to be changed back to R12 or an R12 replacement as was originally designed. Both are pretty simple and cheap repairs.
I am describing this to the best of my knowledge. I am a detail oriented person so I tent to rate things conservatively compared to most people. I will be more than happy to answer any questions and provide pics of anything you would be interested in seeing.
I would drive this van across the country tomorrow!
