      • I believe 1961 through 1964 are the same, except of course for the original covering. The upholstery patterns changed from year to year. The 65, 66 and 67 had different frames and legs.

  1. I’d love to see a forum for early Econoline trucks! I’m trying to find out how many early Econolines were manufactured with factory 4-speed column shifts. Anyone with any knowledge of this??

  2. I am looking for info on putting a C4 trany in my 63 econoline pickup. What year to look for what drive shaft to use?

  3. I picked up a 1961 Econoline that I’m fixing up for my local arts council. These are the parts I need to make her safe:

    -Drive shaft
    -Rear differential
    -Right rear leaf springs

  4. Looking for an econoline truck in the Midwest. Nice driver no rust/little rust.
    No mechanical issues – please let me know if you have anything.

    • I’ve got a 5 window ’62 that’s in very good shape. No rust, ready for paint (it’s in primer black). Original motor (170 cu. in.), three speed. No mechanical issues. All original parts. Good glass. Interior nice. You could drive it the way it is and have a very nice truck. I’m in central Indiana. $8,000

  5. I picked up a 1965 econoline panel van back in april that has been sitting since about 1985, 98% rust free. I think most everything is there but it obviously will need total restoration. I started pulling the 170 ci motor today that is locked up.
    I just wanted to share the info with other enthusiasts.
    Ryan, as for a windshield, call local glass shops. I found one in ft worth who can get them and the new seal $329 installed

  6. Looking to put disc brakes on my 63 Econoline pickup. Any thoughts on which hubs / conversion kit to use. Looks like Econoline uses the same wheel bearing as Galaxie.

    • Hi
      D and D Disc brakes conversion seems like a tried and true fit
      they claim to have some new parts coming out this october?
      also has a direct bolt on power master cylinder, supposedly.
      I just contacted them to see what the best options are for early econoline
      also instagramer fomocochoptop just put disc brakes on his 66 econoline front and rear

  7. Yo!! I have a 64 Econoline Sport Van and want to put a hitch on it to carry my Enduro. Max weight 400 lbs. Anyone here have any luck fabricating and welding a hitch to their van?

  8. I am looking for someone that has done the 302 V8 conversion. Someone I can bounce ideas off, and show me pitfalls. To make this a smooth transition. Thanks!

  9. The boss here is looking for an NOS exhaust for his 65 Econoline, I believe it’s the 170cu engine. We found an exhaust manifold through C&G Ford Parts a few months back but having a tough time locating more than that.

  10. Hey Guys, I need a 61-63 steering Knuckle, Left side…with or without Spindle
    Why is this seemingly so hard to find?
    C1UU 3106-A
    Thanks for any help, Kevin

  11. Looking to buy a nice, mostly original ’66 or ’67 E100 pickup. Not looking for major projects, desire clean Western tin, no rust buckets. Let me know what you have, and what you have to have, thanks! Mike

  12. My dad and I are restoring a 64 Fairlane, building a Thunderbolt clone. From what I read they used Econoline bucket seats in the car. So, in short lol, I’m looking for a pair of bucket seats out of a 64 Econoline van.
