The Oldest pictures I have of my Vintage 64 Ford Econoline Van

This is probably the first or second year I owned my 64 Ford Econoline van. Plastic murals were invented, and colored pin striping tape. I had just bought my first set of wheels and tires. The tires then, four ply nylon tires were much taller than the radials I run now. I thought it was the coolest thing ever to have those wide tires. The wheels are the same wheels I run today. The interior that I don’t have pictures of had long orange shag carpet and a white fur lined key hole separating the front from the back. The entire floor was a 4″ thick piece of foam covered in the orange shag. It made the entire back a bed. Oh, the port holes were also lined in white fur. Quite the pimp mobile. It’s amazing looking back at how many things have been done to the van over the years. I’m not sure how much paint weight is currently on the van but I know there’s a lot. I eventually got the 50 series tires on the front as well. I really liked the wide tire format. I’m sure over the years those wide tires have cost me a lot in gas money. I will say that the van is very stable on the freeway and in high winds. Shortly after these pics were taken I cut out the wheel wells and hand molded the the fiberglass flairs that are still on the van today. I was told early on that they would never stay stuck to the van but they were wrong. These things have held up through the coldest mid western winters and the extreme heat of the Vegas summers. Although a little dated in shape, it will be a while before I ever upgrade them. I just have to many other things on the list.
