2) rear hatch door locking mechanism
3) air induction tube
4)Original Shift Knob
5) 1 bracket for the sun visor
6) 1 window crank handle

Welcome to the club, thanks for hanging in, I think there are more trying to join, I hope the problem will be solved.
Nice looking van. The most problems with the rear latch is a broken plastic piece, that you can get from Shapeways, they 3D print them, less than $10.00

Thanks, I will look into that. I’m happy to finally be in the club.
Yea, I kinda got it to work. The top part works, but I can’t open the bottom door using the handle. I have to manually pull the wires to open the bottom door.

Try Shapeways 3 D printing,( van latch & van latch 2) By Lucky. Both pieces under $15.00, should solve your problem. :wink:

Welcome to The Club! Enjoy your van! I drove one like it for 40 years
and 2 months and if you give it preventive maintenance it will be very
reliable AND economical to drive. :D

Thanks Ed...Yes! I simply adore my van!!! It is now my favorite vehicle to drive and I absolutely love seeing all the smile and thumbs up wherever I go! When I pick up my kids from school all the kids in the school yard start pointing and laughing because it is so cute! Everyone is so amused and surprised that something so small could actually be street legal. I call it my Street legal go cart!

Yes, they do get attentions more than any other cars out there, Here is a picture from December Pomona car show. There are may be thousand cars but only the 360's have people wait inline for photos.
