Evolve Motors is pleased to present this absolutely awesome 1978 Dodge Sportsman CANNONBALL RUN replica van
What We Know/ Exterior
A client of ours that owns a local marketing company brought us this van and asked us to help them sell it. How could we not?? This is not only a super clean and extra straight Dodge Sportsman.........this is also a near perfect clone of the same one used in Cannonball Run (cir 1981). If Burt Reynolds, Dom Delouise, and Farrah Fawcett don't tickle your fancy then maybe the fact that the late Hal Needham signed the visor will. What's even better than a damn near perfect knockoff is a that it is still in its original configuration with the no-so-common door and window configuration and full seating for 8. No gurney in the rear of this head can throw all of your pals in and strap them in safely. The original Federal Signal Aero-Dynic Light Bars are also rare and believe to be in good working order. As a dealer we are not allowed to sell a vehicle with flashing red lights so the light bar has been disconnected, however all the wiring and hardware is in place. This Van started as a 2 tone mint green metallic and medium green sunfire body over green plaid interior. This van has a rust spot above the exhaust outlet that is visable in the pics. The van is otherwise extremely dry and solid throughout
The Interior
Once again, scroll through the pictures, as we try to highlight every detail, good and bad. The interior is extremely original and extremely clean. We have never seen Dodge plaid interior withstand the test of time quite like this. The interior is a site to see and the plaid brings you right back to 1978. If you don't appreciate the interior then you don't deserve this van. All seatbelts are in tact and functional. The dash is very nice as are the gauges and trim. We note a few missing trim pieces here and there but for the most part this van is very well in tact. Please also note the professionally installed sunroof for the perfect cruise! The AC was just serviced and blows nice and cold so you and your compadres will be comfortable when you take on the town or a local game
Under the Hood / Under the Car
Under the dog house is the straightforward 360cid V8 with the factory 2 bbl (professionally rebuilt). It idles smooth and revs crisply. It is backed by an automatic transmission that shifts nice and tight. Flowmaster mufflers take care of the exhaust and give this stout van a tasteful grumble. The new BF Goodrich Radial T/As are at 85%+ and offer a nice smooth ride. Power disc brakes on the front help bring the van to a safe, straight, stop. The driver will also enjoy power steering when wheeling around town or cross country. Note just how clean and dry the underside of this van is. It is really a time capsule and needs to be seen in person
The Final Assessment
It may not have the 4 fuel fill points and the 440 V8 that the original movie van had....but who is driving cross country in a '78 Sportsman these days anyways??? Maybe you are, we know we would. This van was built to bring back great memories and to be shared with all eyes. So all around this is the perfect clone to one of the most iconic vans of all time. Better yet this one is functional and can carry a van load of friends to wherever your heart desires. Burt approves and so should you
