1970 Dodge ram custom van for sale
It’s widely recognized that forward control vans tie Camaros with T-Tops in their bitchin-ness. At times, the combination of an enclosed interior and smoke work to your advantage, but once those munchies take hold, wouldn’t it be great if you could grill your wings from inside the comfort of your vehicle?
Our seller’s decided to help us out this problem…

Whoa, man…

He’s converted the back of this 1970 Ram Van into a seating area complete with a bbq, mister, park benches, astro-glideturf. It’s powered by a 225 slant six, running through a 3 on-the-tree, just as Jah intended.

    "Inside" seems to be a bit of an exaggeration with this one. I'd rock it, though!

    I do like how the grill is mounted within easy reach of the drivers seat!

      Beware of hot coals during sudden stops!

        Yeah, yeah, there are faults with any design, but at least don't have to waste any time at the drive thru!

    But can you keep the chili hot with a well in the engine cover?

      If there's room next to the buns being freshly steamed.

        They won't be, unless someone's sitting bitch.

    As the owner of a 1963 Ford Falcon Station Bus, I get to critique this just a bit.
    While this A100 is cool, it would even sweeter if the gas grill was removed and a grill was mounted over the top removed "doghouse" with that 226 Slant Six providing the heat source!
    Not that would be hooning! IMHO.

    A built in pony keg cooler and CO2 tap system and this Patio Daddy-o would be complete.

      I noticed that omission as well. No kegerator with a hose run up to the driver's seat? This design is nice, but it needs some improvements for version 2.0.

    2. BrianTheHoon Avatar

      An excellent idea that begs the question: Would a kegerator count as an open container?

    All hail the Van. Long live the BBQ, Indoor/Outdoor carpet and Sub speakers. Good Times. Good Times…..

    You know, some Carne Asada, a 120 Gallon Cooler and some beers and you have the perfect vehicle for, well any car meet!

    Oh, this is WAY better than any Camaro with T-Tops. Now, a Z with T-Tops…

    I don't think it would last very long in PA… the whole rain thing would mess it up i think…

    1.) No roof. You're gonna waste that sweet, sweet ganja smoke blowing it into the atmosphere like that. A proper enclosed van would never allow that to happen. See Fast Times At Ridgemont High for a prime example.
    2.) Fridge? Where? I can tell you from <strikeexperience</strike> stories I've heard that, yes the munchies do tend to hit after a fat spliff, but I've never exactly felt the urge to fire up the grill and cook up a steak. I need sandwiches! And for sandwiches, we need cold cuts. And where the hell am I going to keep cold cuts with no fridge?

    3.) This thing needs a TV and some sort of futon/hide-a-bed arrangement. Those park benches and astro-turf aren't gonna be so groovy when you and your blitzed-out-of-their-mind buddies are sitting around staring at each other with no sandwiches and no Scooby-Doo to watch. I'd need a place to relax and veg out while the Indo does its thing. Besides If I wanted to sit on a park bench outside and get high, I'd take my ass down to the park.
    4.) Being in the open like that smoking a doober isn't a great idea when ol' John Law comes around. A parked van is just a parked van to most people, but an open-air van parked on the side of the road with a bunch of long-hairs in the back perched on benches smoking hand-rolled cigarettes is a little too fishy for (Insert city here)'s best to overlook.

    This is a nice concept, but not for hippy duty. I say paint it up in your favorite team colors (RED AND GOLD BABY!!) and head to the stadium for some sweet tailgating action.

    Ironically, the tailgate's welded shut.

      Well that puts a little damper on it, doesn't it? Wow, could this be FAIL?

        It's not really shown, but I think you get in the back through where the double doors used to be on the right side.

    I had a '66 Ford Falcon Econoline back in the '80's, and I swear between the heat coming off that doghouse about 2 inches from my right side and the Arizona sun coming in on the left, I was the one getting BBQ'ed!

    1. CptSevere Avatar

      260 air conditioning doesn't do you much good in that situation.

      1. longroof Avatar

        More like 250!!

  16. superbadd75 Avatar

    Hell, I wish I were friends with the guy that owns that! Is that Widmer Hef?

    1. BGW Avatar

      It's a Widmer tap. The dude who did this was a burned-out homebrewer, though, and I believe had something wacked-out like Imperial Oatmeal Pumpkin Milk Stout with a hint of maple syrup, coriander & orange peel, dry-hopped with pine needles and skankweed,

    What a gem. I found your blog on Yahoo poking around for something completely different, and now I’m gonna need to go back and read all the old posts XD So long spare time this morning, but this was a truly great find.

    This subject was very enlightening and effectively created. I plan to try and do some far more research on this. With thanks for giving this timely facts. We require much more like that.
