Johnnyecono WELCOME TO V.V. It might help if you post this under "E van general discussion". That way the econo bunch might see it quicker.

It might also help if you would put your location. The US is a big place and you could have another vanner in your area.

The passenger van was called the Ford Falcon Club Wagon.

. And the horn cover will differ depending on how it was badged from the factory (Falcon or Econoline). I think there were some passenger models that were badged as Econolines (Station Bus). There are also Travelwagons which have Econoline badging AFAIK.

I know there are threads on here where the gurus break all of this down.

It could be either. Post your vin for a decode. The falcon bus will have script badges in the front doors and the rear right door. Econoline branded vans only have badges on the front doors. The horn buttons are interchangeable as well.

If it's in the pickup that's in your avatar then it's not correct. All Falcons were window vans. Pickups and regular vans were all Econolines. Not all window vans were Falcons but all Falcons were window vans.

There were no Falcon vans in 1961-1962, thus the steering wheel, or maybe just the horn button, came from a 1963-1967 Falcon van.
