Hello! This is my wrecked 95 GMC vandura! It moves, but the steering wheel doesn't work! I bought it for a 12 pack of henikin light! It only has 91K MI!

That's going to be a bit more involved than replacing a brake line.

Yep. But we are getting the work done at a shop.

Lol a 14 year old bought it with a 12 pack of Henikin Light but doesn't have venmo.  Just giving you a hard time.  I'm sure that'll buff out.  I do like the wheels.

Quick check shows 4l60e most likely.  Cool van.  I always liked that generation of GM vans.

Good luck bringing it back!  Looks like it took a solid hit. Ouch.

I love an old conversion van.

Oh no!   How much for a frame straightening pull?

If the frame is not rusty  , you can have it pulled at a frame shop , .

but not sure where you are if you can find good replacement fender etc

does the passenger door open OK ?  And is the door gap OK ?

Yea...that fender is holding the door closed.  The A pillar might be tweaked too.  I've always wondered how long those old air bags would work.  Was it hit when not running?
