Pretty Cool pics of ol' Jack and Sons! Sure seems there were a lot more "slim" people back then. scratch


These aren't as old as ol' Jack's, maybe late 90's.

I pulled that same pic off an old hard drive last night with intentions of posting it. Notice the way the rear bumper is mounted above the front.



This picture taken outside of the Holman Moody shops shows an Econoline sitting waiting attention. H/M had a fleet of Econolines to take to Europe with the Rally Falcons. It's rumored they put a 427 in one of them. Again, the rear bumper is mounted above the front. We're wondering if all Econos were shipped this way? We talked about it a few years ago on the Econosrus yahoo group. Never could come up with a definite answer. Interesting to me anyways.



While we're on the subject of shipping Econo's here's a picture of a few in transit. Can anybody tell me the year? That's easy. Bonus question, How many white ones are there?



How about a shot on the transporter? This is a 65-67 big six with the C-4. That's what they looked like new from the factory.

That's cool about the H/M Shop. I noticed the double front bumper too, but didn't notice it was a rear.
You can see it better on the picture in front of the shop.

I got a few pictures of "Old Vans Still at Work" too! tongue





Spooky's has been on this forum somewhere before...nicely done Smile


This Pickup lives down the street from me. I talked to guys wife and left my number for the husband but he never called. She said it belonged to his Grandfather who passed away some years ago and now his dad and him are planning to work on it.

Spooky was a member on the Econosrus site but he sold his truck a few years ago. It was his only daily driver and he was doing about a 100 mile commute. Just wasn't working out for him. He was a real fun guy to have on the site.

This one isn't a "working" Early, but it looks like there's a lot of "work" ahead!

This one doesn't really fit in here but I think it's just to cool not to share.
