I Just received these photos from a cousin of a trip he did in 1967
and I was surprised to see his van was the same style, only longer, as one I restored and sold back in October 2004.
A few other people on this forum have the same, or similar van, but I don’t think the make of it has yet been identified...it must have been popular at the time and it seems as though many of them have survived.
If you are one who has a similar van can you post a link to yours here so we can compare them?
Here is the other side ;D note the roof line over the side and end windows are the same as yours. The wheel arch shape has been altered for the spats. I refer to it as a gypsy van - but i dont really know what it is

Gidday Earlee yep I love spats on anything including Vintage Vans I purchased some spats off the net on ebay and they were supposed to fit my EK however they fitted an fC so ripped againso I tried trimming them down with snips nope not a goer so into storage they went however I started to think which really is not good a lot of the time but was good this time

the spats will be black same as betty and to match the black line down the side they will be fitted with a small u mould and bolted with 3 cuphead bolts painted black in that photo the spats were just being held by the clipping system provided for the F C with a bit of shaping they will sit flat

I have got a photo of a 57 Chev belaire with whitewalls and spats in chevy blue looks awesome but it is a convertible Ive never seen a 4 door sedan with them 57s look good any way they come the van will look great with spats just gives them something extra I think
