Looking for front seats a 1964 Econoline van. Any advice or suggestions on what would work would be greatly appreciated

If they’re the same as 1961 Pickup – I have a pair. Currently on ebay.

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.

Not sure but I have correct drive shaft for the 4 speed and a drivers sun visor with the 4 speed shift instructions in it.

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

How difficult is it to fit a 289 into the engine compartment. What motor mounts do you use? Is there a mount for the transmission I’m wanting to put a C4 behind it.

Barnabas
Guest
Barnabas

Should fit fairly easily in 1965-1967 dog house. The 1961-1964 dog house is smaller, but you can get a later doghouse and put it in an early. Easiest is if the stock engine was a 240. In that case you can use the original transmission and rear axle.

Find a used exhaust manifold, then take the van to an exhaust shop. Nobody makes the specific parts, but you could make your own. Exhaust shop can fabricate what you need.
