A forward-control van like this 1967 Ford Econoline is always going to be an attention-getter. But this one gets noticed more than the rest. That's because it earns its flames with an upgrade to fuel-injected V8 power. And with an A/C interior, upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes, it makes for an awesome driver's classic.
A first-gen Econoline van is already a rare sight these days, so you know this one will grab plenty of attention. But what will really make everyone take notice is the flamed-out front end that starts white-hot at the front and burns a beautiful orange blaze down the sides. So while most people would just be content with the bright metallic green, it's just a canvas for this van's fire. Deleted badging, bright bumpers, and polished alloys are all part of this custom and captivating style, too.
The interior maximizes everything that's great about these forward-control vans. The mid-mounted engine means front bucket seats, but now these are modern units with modern bolstering. And while the exterior green returns inside, the tuck and roll brown vinyl of the doors and headliner are a cool reminder of the early days of the custom van scene. There are also nice features for modern cruising, like a tilt steering column, a floor shifter, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and cold-blowing air conditioning for the front and rear. And speaking of the rear, it has a full headliner, full carpeting, jump seats, and bare wood walls. So it's ready to be outfitted for a camper, cargo, business showcase, or whatever your imagination wants to do with this full custom machine.
One of the things that makes this first-gen Econoline so cool is that it's not a center console in-between the seats... it's the engine bay. And while Ford only offered the inline-six, a few people started to notice that the V8s fit in there, too. So this one got a major upgrade to a fuel-injected 5.0-liter motor. It's a strong-running full package. In fact, they did far more than just upgrade the powerhouse. The four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, independent front suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes are all big upgrades over stock that make this van a true easy cruiser.
This custom Econoline is distinct, versatile, and powerful. That makes for a terrific classic that's ready to run. Call now!
