would have been smarter to use 62 ranchero headlight surrounds since they look the same as hr to the naked eye

Russell,

I still haven't bothered to look. But, in a nightmare the other night the name "Wind Chaser" came to me.
Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree? Still, I'll throw it out there....

I don't know if this is the Van Rusty was thinking?, but "Windchase" was by all accounts a very good Van judging by the awards it won.
It dominated good Fords Vans of the day, such as Total Eclipse, Fire Truck and Hallucination.
When I was taking a bo-peep through some old CV&T's I also noticed the ugly tube grill and HR headlight rims were removed after about 2 years of showing.
One of the last photos I found it appeared to have a normal Falcon front once again.

What we need to remember people were going nuts doing everything custom, all in an attempt to gain show points and be anything other than factory.

A lot of these customs mods were to the detriment of style. (this was one of those errors!)
Wonder whatever happened to this Van?

Well done James! congrats

I reckoned you'd be the one to solve it.

There were certainly a few unique Vans.

Kustom RuleZ! Respect1

Unfortunately some things sound Kool in our Minds, but just don't always work in Reality.

CheckMate was Australia's No: 1 Van in 1982 at Wodonga.  I'm not sure of the exact wording without doing more research.

The VCV does indicate that the "Top Van" was Checkmate, but that will be an error in how they titled it.

If you look at the 2013 Vic Title Results on the VCV Site they have Gary McMillan's Van in the Photo for the 7th Van at the Titles calling it "Surf's Up", which is a different Van in so many ways other than it be a Holden of the same body shape.  Perhaps they gave the Trophy to the wrong Person.  lol! 

The Top Van is another Van Category outside the Top 10 altogether.

It was Blue in Colour.

Checkmate was Australia's Top Van for '82 it won the show van class as well as winning People's Choice at the '82 nats.

Van of show was out of the street class vans and yes Rusty it was blue.......... Suspect

If it's the Van I'm thinking of, "Yes".

The colour is a hint too.
