Can't forget those hard working Vonage Vans!
Anyone know any interesting trivia about these?

No trivia but I bought a mini replica of one from GMan before his passing. A treasure I will hold on to.

I'm seeing mostly Fords here, some Dodges, not many Chevys. I saw this large photo in the entrance of a Lowes hardware store:

Few more pictures including yet another Sears Van Shot!
Still that that's a strange paint scheme Sears came up with there.

That Sears paint job is bizzarre. It doesn't go with the lines of the vans at all. Some graphic artist thought it was so clever to align the corner of the logo box with the two-tone break. Not working for me.

lol, Didn't recognize your van from the Avatar picture. It's a great redNice Van!

Also did you notice the Econoline badge on the Deli van is in the center of the door instead of forward. Looks strange.

That Sears van's roof doesn't appear to have the outer grooves in it, just the wide ones in the center. Are some different that others or is it just the picture?

It's my understanding that the first year these vans were made they didn't have the roof ribs.. 1961. After that the ribs were used from 62 to 67.
