Howdy,

That sounds like a good idea to add Chevy Express and GMC Savanah.
Maybe could even include Chevy G20 full size vans too, I had a 1979 Chevy G20 Beauville window van, and a 1994 Chevy G20 Sport window van. Both were great. Express van started in 1996 with new body style and improved suspension. But the G20 was more rugged with slightly thicker sheet metal.

Thank you,

AP

Absolutely, AP. It would be silly not to include the G van.

Heck yea!
I love them all, there is not a lot of parts that are cross-compatible between the platforms. Ls information would be easier to find as an added bonus for those wanting to do a V8 conversion. Camper conversions would share a ton of information especially the stuff about aux batteries and solar stuff. Sounds like a good idea to me.

The M-body facelift of 1996 was to coordinate with the G-Series complete redesign. The 1996 Chevrolet and GMC G-1500 (Design Specification GMT600) had new "handles" (Express and Savana, respectively, superseding Chevy Van and Vandura) and sales literature to match; 1996-2002 base models in both brands packed the V6-4300 and 4L60-E with a stronger, taller-geared axle to move the greater weight.

I vote aye for the Express/Savana phase-in.
