Old Pictures of Earlies at Work

Post by uante on Sun Dec 28, 2014 10:46 am

Thought it would be cool to have a thread of Old Pictures of Econolines at work. Came across a few while doing some imagine searches.

Those are some great ones!
The wreck one is a really cool action shot...maybe a little too close to the flames! Razz

I guess I should have put this thread under just General so we could get GM and Dodge Old Workers too.

Here's another couple...

Who knows, one of those could be someone's current vehicle! Thanks for posting guys! Very Happy cheers

Mine has holes in the nose above the headlights where those telephone truck lights are and it has green on the interior walls as well.

Here's a few Military Van/Pickup pictures I found

*Looks like I have a lead finding an old picture of my van. Might take a week to find out one way or the other after they do some searching.

Some of these are new pictures of old trucks that I've found for sale. I liked the old lettering so I saved them.

I like the Snap On Tools Econoline. I saw some pictures just the other day of a survivor one that looked just like that.

I had a Pac Bell truck myself. A guy here in Tennessee paid a fortune to have one shipped from Oregon. It was a total POS. I had to cut it scrap. I didn't get hardly any good parts from it.

Anybody notice that snow blower Econo is a Spring Special. Trim and Poppy Red paint give it away.

Cool Pics! The Woodstock one is like "Where's Waldo"! lol
And the snow plow/blower one is pretty crazy

Here's a Band's Van I found Called "Nickle Revolution". The story was the Cargo Van was first but they wrecked it and a couple of members were hurt, but not seriously. They then got the window van to travel around in.

One other I came across was "The Bomer Boys"?
Hard to read, but I think that's what it says.
