Hello from France

Post by Chevy230 »

Hello from France!!! I'm Stéphane I have just registered on the forum to have more informations on the B190 and possibly buy one present on the forum. I'm looking for a 1993 or 1994 model in good condition. I'm trying via Facebook or Craiglist ads but I get a refusal as soon as I say I'm in France. I've had about thirty American classic cars, most of them bought on ebay motors. I currently have a 1957 Chevy Belair, a 1973 Buick Century, a 1976 Chevy CK20 and a 1928 Ford.
I often travel around Europe with my family in a VW California Exclusive, but now it's time for a V8!!!!
Thanks for the welcome.

Hi Stephane
I see you are looking for a 93-94 b190 as an owner of a 96
And only by accident did I land up with a 96
As I was looking for any year at the time
What I discovered was the layout is slightly different and think it makes better sense to have the cook top away from the side of the couch as in the 96 this could be just a personal choice
The other thing to consider is the transmission for some 95 and all 96 had an upgrade
But from what I see and read these transmissions are not a strong point on these vans people seem to have rebuild them with what I think is too early on in miles
In 97 the vans changed to the v10 and different transmission but the roof top also changed and got shorter making the overhead bunk shorter this would probably effect tall people trying to sleep up top
These are just a few things I learned along the way that might help you when looking
For your rig

Hello, thank you for the information. I am looking for a 93 or 94 because here in France it is impossible to register this type of vehicle if it is less than 30 years old. I also prefer models that no longer have a square front end but are more rounded. Surely, with the V10, it must be a pleasure to drive. Thanks
