Last month I bought a Press Release packet that was sent to Ford dealers introducing
"FORD'S NEW ECONOLINE SERIES, FOR RELEASE TUESDAY SEPT. 27, 1960".
There are three photos of the new models with a typewritten page underneath glued to the back of each.
I've scanned in the pictures and the press release for each and included them below:

There are also three pages with information for the salesmen and two pages of 1961 Econoline specifications.
I'll get them scanned and posted tomorrow.

Nice pics Carl! Did you notice that only the Station Bus has the extra lights up front... I dont think they were ever put on the production model but it would be cool to find a set.
