1965 Econoline Pickup COE

econolineThis cab-over Ford Econoline pickup is an unusual sight, especially in running condition, although there is an issue. Listed here on eBay where the bidding is at $3,500 without a reserve, the truck has spent the last several years in Taylor, Arkansas. Parts availability is good, and the rust along the rockers can be dealt with this patch panel. A little tougher problem is the lack of first gear, although the seller has been driving it around in second and third. While it’s not original by any means, it does look like a pretty solid truck to putter around in. I wonder if the 165-pound weight Ford had to fit over the rear axle to give it traction is still there? Let us know if you have one of these cab-overs!
