hmmmm more or less just a high roof van. Looks like you will have to sand it all down to repaint it since that tiki paint is all flaking off :-\

too bad its not one of the dually ones... you would gain SO much interior space with one of those.

Are you going to paint it or leave it yellow. Looks like youve got some side mirrors to replace as well. Should be a great party wagon or tailgate bus. Or even a great tow rig as well. How does it run.
