Gary here, I am from Windsor, Ontario, Canada. I can say that there is very little support up here in Canada for the 1st and second Generation Ford Econolines. I own a 1974 Econoline (The KISS Van Of Windsor) and now am thinking about picking up a 1963 Econoline. BUT, it has a 144 ci, manual motor and trans in it. I want to put a v6 or v8 in it. But, not sure when exactly is involved in doing so. Would also put dics breaks on the front, would have to change shocks Because of weight. Not sure of every thing. BUT, the body on the van it self is not too bad. Every thing is there with extras.
thanks and hope to be talking soon.
I am on Facebook with a group for 2nd Generation Econolines.
