Street Vans was published by 110 Fillmore Corp in Centerport, New York. The publisher was Phil Engeldrum, who had previously started Super Stockers, High Performance Stockers and Chevy Power magazines. The editor was Lee Kelley.
Introduced at the start of the "van craze" first featured in Hot Rod in the early 1970s, a slew of magazines emerged to cover this fad. Engeldrum was an early entrant with two titles - this one and Vans & Trucks.
The magazine was largely undifferentiaterd but had equal parts content with both feature vans and how-to tips. The how-to articles covered all aspects of what you need to customize a van -- interiors, painting, air-brushing, sound systems, glass etching, sinks, refrigerators and bubble windows.

A total of 17 issues was produced from September, 1976 through July, 1979. All cover images are complete. We apologize for the less than ideal quality of some cover images. These are relatively rare magazines, and good quality images are hard to find.
