Dodge vans, particularly Tradesman vans from the 1971 1977 model years, were very popular as the basis for many custom vans during the custom van craze that occurred during the mid- to late 1970s and early 1980s. Dodge capitalized on this craze, creating a factory customization package called the Street Van package. This was advertised alongside the Lil Red Express and Warlock trucks as Adult Toys. The Street Van package consisted of a logo on the passenger and drivers side door in lieu of the Tradesman logos, chrome trim on the grille and windshield, simulated wood grain inlays in the steering wheel horn cover and passenger side glare shield, five-slot chrome wheels or white spoked off-road type wheels, chrome front and rear bumpers, chrome trim on the gauges, smaller chrome side-view mirrors, patterns and plans to create custom interiors, and membership in the Dodge Van Clan. This package was available from the 1976 model year until it was discontinued in the early 1980s. Competition to this B300 in 1977 include conversions of Chevrolet s G30, Ford s E-350 and GMC s Vandura 3500 and Volkswagen s Bus. This vintage and extremely hard to find Coachmen Model Tee van has a lot of amenities for traveling visits to state parks, camping, hiking or even day trips.
