just bought a 78 4x4 van, lookin fer info

looked all night last night on google... found very little information on these. by searching for quigley i found out that they did conversions that far back. So i'm guessing it's a quigley. So far really wondering if there are other companies that did the convert back then. I am assuming it's not a factory job, I guess they never made 'em. I've heard tell that that vintage chebby had the Dana "V-Drive" front systems that are complete ghosts now... can't find parts for nothin..

anybody had experience with vans? i'm posting on as many boards as I can find, and i know being a rockcrawling board your members would be quite in the dark about vans (top heavy maybe?) but it's worth a shot.
