There's a company planning on making a new toy like that Shelby School Van. I think it'll be matchbox size.

Seems like quite a few Fire Departments used Earlies. I've found some pictures of Chevys (including Greenbriers) and Dodges as well.

Wow, that Westinghouse one is Awesome lol

So I'm working to get the name of this thread changed. Swap out "Econos" to "Earlies". There's some great pictures of the others as well.

These "modified" 1970 A100's were used at the Naval Air Station Coronado Island, San Diego for many years by what look like maintenance crews.  They were sold at auction and a local Mopar dismantler bought them and scraped them.

Want to thank Vanish for relocating and renaming this thread. I was seeing great old pictures of other Earlies at Work and thought it'd be appropriate for this collection to be open to everyone on the site to enjoy.  

Here's a few of the pictures I came across searching for Econos at Work
