I've been looking for a first generation Econoline van for about a decade now and the timing was right a few weeks ago. I'm now the proud new owner of a '64! The van's a little rough in places but the price was right and I drove it home. Did the front brakes and bearing last weekend and I have plans to dig into the wiring a bit this next weekend and hopefully get both brake lights working. I've already picked up a heater which it was missing and a battery box. Those will need some sanding and painting before I get them installed.
I'm excited to be here, I've been researching like crazy and was happy to see there's a community around the old vans.
No pictures today as it's being stored at a family's shop but I'll have a bunch of pictures up soon!
