My '64 Chevy HARD at work bringing home my first Econoline PU, also a 64.
I worked that poor Chevy hard for about 6 years, daily. Time to give it a taste of the easy life.

I found this picture at our local Lowe's here in Santee, CA.



I'm thinking early 70's?

The Econoline is a 1965 or 1966. 1967 would have standard backup lights.

I'm sorry, I didn't state my question correctly. I should have said that I believe this picture was taken in the early 70's.

I was probably still working on my first cup of coffee when I posted the original.

That's what I figured you meant. Funny how Lowe's has changed their store fronts since then...looks like a reclaimed warehouse in the picture. lol

Just got an old Ford Magazine off eBay called "Clues To Successful Truck Operation" Winter 1966 and there were a couple of interesting Econoline pictures in it.

Bernie Hoffmann was apparently a real person providing animals for filming TV.



And a very cool old survey shot

In the 60's vans were in the maintenance department of most Railroads. Many were equipped as Hi-Rail equipment. (Vehicles with retractable rail wheels)

These were on the Pennsylvania Railroad.





I wonder if any members have vans that used to be equipped this way? Enjoy, Jerry

Cool Railroad worker pictures, thanks for posting! Not sure if these vans were equipped to inspect the rails ultrasonically, but I've seen later vans set up to drive the tracks looking for cracks!
