There's just something always cool about a forward-control van, and this 1966 Ford Econoline Falcon Custom shows it off nicely. It's a survivor-style vehicle that gives you cool features, a fine price, and a blank canvas.
This van has a true charming amount of originality. The Wimbledon White paint is believed to be the factory application, and so that would give it over half a century to get a well-aged patina. This is a six-door van, and they all operate with confidence (the .....
rear side even has a slide-out step.) There are a few nice upgraded touches like the roof rack and high-mount side-view mirror. And this now sits on a set of bright American Racing Torq Thrust 17-inch alloys. It's all just period-correct additions that never take away from this van's classic and cool vibe.
These forward control vans offer individual seats up front, and the driver gets a commanding view of the road. These were the American answer to the Volkswagen Bus, and the full 8-window package can't help but give this the same bright interior as your favorite VW surf vans. Plus, the long flat floor is great for everything from carrying cargo to becoming a build for your home away from home.
Ford's sturdy 240 cubic-inch inline-six is mounted in-between the seats for a nice weight balance. It has a true look of originality, just like the rest of this van, but it also has the right signs of maintenance. It fires up readily and shifts smoothly on the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. This package feels quite good going down the road, and the upgraded wheels allow for wider modern tires.
True vintage style and permanent utility make for a distinct van that's ready for your next chapter. Call today!!!
