Retro Cool! 1979 Dodge B200 Star Wars Van!

This 1979 Dodge B200 Van features Star Wars graphics and will undoubtedly get attention wherever it goes. It can be found here on eBay with a current bid of just over $1,300. Currently located in San Antonio, Texas, we featured this van here on Barn Finds in January of 2017. Back then it was being offered for sale on Craigslist in Largo Vista, TX with an asking price of $6,000. I don’t know if it sold back then, but based on the current ad, I think it has changed owners in the past few years. An internet search yields articles about this specific van going back several years. It apparently was for sale on eBay back in 2012 for $10,000! Check it out!

I’m not a big Star Wars fan (gasp!, I know…), so if you’re looking for clever quips from the movies or punny jokes, you’ll have to refer to Scotty G.’s great article from 2017. I do know that vans are super hot and the Star Wars continues to be very popular. This van features some cool touches including a shaped visor, wide rear tires, fender flares, and the rear wing.

Unfortunately, the current eBay ad doesn’t have large detailed photos. The picture above shows what the engine looked like in 2012. The current photos of the engine show chrome valve covers and the ad states it has a new crate 318 V8. The seller says it has sat for a while and needs servicing.

This is a photo from 2012 and the graphics are quite striking. The current seller does say the hood graphic is cracking a bit from the sun, but overall, it still looks decent. It even features Chewbacca riding shotgun! So what do you think of this van? Do you think it will sell?

    Looking over the photos, pretty easy to call BS on the seller’s claim that this was built 2 years after the movie. Much more recent build for sure.

    When it comes to Star Wars themed vehicles the delphi auto design 1977 Celica GT that was built for a Star Wars sweepstakes is the one I would like to have.

    this isn’t a barn find, the listing is a pile of BS.
    this van was in a scrapyard in 2009, and was only “designed and built” in the past 10 years… it hasn’t been sitting “for years”
