Looks like a great setup. The only thing I've seen that was anything like this was the Surferoo (http://www.fomoco.com.au/surferooxb1.html

Awesome stuff. I hadn't seen that page before. I love anything related to the XA/B models. I wish there were more vans & utes still on the road.

Sounds like a relation to the Sundowner range :)

Or maybe the predecessor. Nice van!

Re: anyone else got a XB surfsider?

That's a interesting setup, the 2V head is different from the norm by the look's of it, the part where the Inlet manifold attach's is not flat or 90 deg from the block like they normally are, it's on a angle or more like 45 deg from the block, I've never seen this before.
