Default Free candy

A few poser pics from a ride today with my First Generation 1961 Ford Econoline Van

Ditched the old six banger with 3 on the tree and converted to a mildly built 351 Windsor and heavily built C6 auto trans. Updated the front axle, tossed the drum brakes and converted over to disc, 9" rear axle stuffed with 4:11's.

Not the fanciest ride, but it's a lot of fun

Sweet! I had a 70 e100 for a bit. Fire breathing 170 and 3 on the tree. It would almost do a burn out. I'm betting the Windsor has no problems converting the rubber to smoke.

I could paint mine the same and pedal their "swag" out here on the East Coast at car shows.
Maybe get a franchise deal with them! $$$$$!!!

I actually have the EXACT same set of wheels that I ran on it last year that I could easily toss back on.

Tags the real deal.

Just finally got it this week.
Ordered the damn thing over 4 months ago, I think the prisoners need to step up their game and move faster

I was shocked when looking on the Mass RMV website and found that "VAN" was even available.
Thought it was funny when I ordered it, but now that it's on there.... it's so simple that it actually looks cool.

Thanks for noticing it

It amazes me that Richard Rawling's head fits in the rides Aaron and crew build, even the convertibles.

we had a couple Chevy Beauville G-20 window vans back when I was growing up, learned to drive on the second one too, wouldn't mind finding a clean one at some point, I'd even look into a Flex Fuel 6.0l LS/6-Speed swap on it.
