Cool Ford, and only 10k original miles!

Been a couple years since Ive gone to the Towe Auto Museum, but they
always have some cool vehicles to look at, and they sell stuff on consignment too.

I'm not associated at all with the sale or museum.

Thanks. I sent thiat post to this mostly '68-'74 Econoline site.
http://econolines.ipbhost.com/index.php?act=idx

There is a thread for on line for sale finds in the 'For Sale/Wanted' section. Those pop-tops are kind of scarce. Could never find one here. I'd have removed all the camper stuff & changed it to haul bikes & camp in it too.
Those are my favorite vans, had them for almost 40 years. Big inside but smaller outside than most any van.

another epic fail. Waste of precious space with that long hood. And who needs a 4 liter V6 or 5.6 liter V8 for sth. like that? give us a 4, 5 or 6 cyl diesel w. 2.5 - 3.5l displacement.

they should bring this:

Nissan interstar


or

the nv200




Not this mix of Titan, Navara, Ford econoline .

Eugh. That van looks really whacked. Kinda like the love (hate?) child of a Navara and an early series SWB Ford Transit. They really should stop trying to put those crappy long engines in vans. It really ruins the whole look (and makes the vehicle unnecessarily large).

That new Nissan looks more like an old school panel truck made from a Titan.

I am the child of a 70's van man. We traveled all over in my dad's Tradesman 100 with the baby blue shag carpet, paneled walls and a couch in the back. My dad who is no longer able to drive gave us his 98' E250 last year. That thing is great for hauling bikes and stuff around. My daughter loves it because it has crank down windows. That's an exotic concept to kids these days, I guess.

Does the Toyota Wonderwagon qualify as a van? I always loved those. I'd like to have one now.


I spotted this baby in NYC last winter. Finally some other folks who will appreciate it's greatness! That is some quality artwork right there...

Anyone see the article in Rider about the Ford Transit Connect? A guy used it to bring a vintage bike to a show, then camped out in it.

This is the van I used to get to the MX races in '73-'74. 1 ton short wheel base. Then oil embargo and a broken leg at Lake Sugartree put an end to that......

Its also in the April issue of car and driver, too.

Garandman - check out this forum thread from the UK; half way down is a guy that has made a small camper put of his TC. He must not be very tall, but I like the enthusiasm...
