1966 Econoline 4x4

Post by Donn on Wed Oct 20, 2010 7:10 pm



Just closed the deal on a new, for me, 66 Econoline 4x4. Owner sent me some pics and as per him it runs great, new tires, 4x4 works as it should, no rust.
Now the auto transporter part starts. I put out an on line bid and so far Aliance Auto Transporters looks the best, 5 star rating and good price. Hopefully this will go smooth...

BIG thanks to G-man for his daily "for sale" posts..that's where I found it...

You should talk to Vic,aka Old Skool. He has a killer setup for sale to make yours a 4wd and he is in California too, the L.A. area.

Yeah, It's going to be hard to wait. Hopefully all go's easy with the Transporter. This is my second time using a transporter, don't know why but I am a little uneasy about them until the van gets here.
The hard part is going to be which van to keep. I spent the entire summer getting the 67 body mint, and have restored it from day one with all intent of keeping it for years. I have always wanted a 4x4, so it's going to be rough to decide. I guess it's a good situation to be in...

I would love to keep both, but I think I would have to live in one if I did.

Well had my first hassle with the transport company today. The arrangement told to me by them was I give them $150 deposit on credit card with the balance due on delivery. The driver gets to the owners house this morning and want's half the balance in cash for gas and tolls!!
I call the transporter and of course the guy I set it up with is off till Monday the girl I speak with tell's me she thought I knew about this and cancel's the driver. Now they have to find another driver from NM to NY!!
I hate this S*$%. Now I look like a jerk to the owner..will update..
