Hello, once again a request for assistance in locating a 65 Econoline panel van sold in 1991 in Sumpter South Carolina.

Reward/finders fee for informating leading to repurchase.

I have been looking for a few years and repost request here about once a year, I understand it may be a beer can somehwere, but you never know.

I sold it to a guy at a flee market next to Shaw AFB in 1991/1992, he may have been military, but I think was a local to Sumpter/Columbia SC, so van could ba anywhere in USA or beyond.

Van was white, but repainted beige with lots of cammo spots in dark brown and black as rust preventative. Front end had two fog lights attached to grill, rear roof vent, and two side dors had glass (came off a falcon van). Rear doors also had glass. Front sway bar off falcon. Engine was a 240 six, 3 spd manual, also from a falcon. Dash was chromed in spots.

Any help appreciated and finders fee could top $5000 depending on condition and sale details.

please PM or email to beemereagle@hotmail.com

Any chance you might have the serial number? if so it could be on a list at the Econosrus Group. I no someone there was keeping a list of serial numbers. You May find it on there, or get a leed as to where it was last seen..Hope this helps.

I bought a white 65 from SC several years ago but it wasn't your old van. Mine was still in factory white.

Check with Jay over at Econosrus Yahoo group as Big W said. Jay has over 5000 numbers in his records and can tell you if he's heard of it.

I wish I had the VIN, even tried old insurance documents and calling SC and AZ DMV, both said they needed last owner name to find VIN, and it would be a manual search. So, no luck there.

I sold this days before getting on plane to go overseas so no detail exists on owner. $600, drove like a top.

I just tried econosrus, not the most easy place to join is it...

I don't remember. I've been there so long I don't remember joining. LOL. Jay's a good guy and really does all he can to help us with our Econolines. Finding your's without the vin will be very hard. Good luck on your search.

You should just take the $5000 reward and buy a nice van. Bets are that van has done hit the scrap yard.

Never know it might show back up one day . I'd like to find the one my dad sold back in the 1980s . I was 14 and drove it on the back roads in Hugo ok . That's why I have a 61 & 63 econoline .i drove the 61 yesterday for the first time . Haven't been behind the wheel since I was 14 .now I'm 41. Hope you find yours .
