See Retro Con’s own A-Team Van at Retro Con 2017!

July 24, 2017 1 comment

Retro Con is probably the only convention in the world with its very own A-Team van on call! We’ve been working on this project since October of 2016, and it’s finally ready to be unveiled!

 

We’ve done our best to replicate the van from the famous 80’s TV show in every detail we could manage. Starting life as a modest 1978 Chevy G-10 work van (we’ll add a build blog later), we’ve added such details as fender flares, running boards, push bar, exterior sun shade, fog lights, sport mirrors, front air dam, quad exhaust tips, turbine wheels, BFGoodrich tires, and of course the unforgettable top fin! The custom paintjob brought it all together!!

Check out the results below…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Photos don’t do the van justice, so please come see it in person at Retro Con 2017!!

Taking pictures of the van is free at the show, or you can get a picture with (or in) the van for the low price of $5 for a person or small group! Have an A-Team related costume? Bring it to the show! We’re offering a FREE photo op with the van to anyone in an A-Team costume!! (All photo ops are on your own camera or phone)

We’d like to thank our good friend Nick Govosdian for his help in getting the van up to snuff mechanically, and we’d also like to thank Bill Cahoe and Hansberry Enterprises in Parker Ford, PA for doing the body and paint work on this project!
