This build is based on an MPC representation of some kind of late 70s van. The ody looks like a Dodge but the grill is of undetermined origin.

It's a Dodge Ram Van B150 or B250 (5 Lug 1/2 Ton Van). I can barely see the script across the hood. By counting the letters. D O D G E comes to 5 letters. LoL Yes, that grill is of Dodge origin as well. I'd know those Marker Lights well. LOL Can't wait to see whatcha do with it. 8)

P.S. I think it's in upside down by looking at the gap at the top of the grill/body meeting point. ;)

The bumper is part of the grill. There would be more of a fit issue if it were upside down.

Ah, that does make sense. I've heard a lot of people who have put these vans together talk about fit issues with grills, bumpers, etc. Makes sense. Can't wait to see more progress. 8)

Added a mesh bulkhead behind the seats so I don't have to fill it up.

Top idea- would have saved me the trouble of making (very crudely) a ribbed floor for my WIP Chev van.
