I am a full sized Ford van enthusiast and have driven them since they were new back in the mid 70's. ( I think i have had 5 of the things.) I tend to own them until the wheels fall off and then find another one to rejuvenate and keep on the road. :ihih:
My current van is an '86 E150 conversion van with all the bells and whistles. I found it for sale by the side of the road in a podunk town out in the middle of nowhere for $500. All I had to repair at the time (6months ago) was the batter and the muffler.
Inside it was in great shape (with all the poerks including the fold-down bed and original removable twin tables and captain's chairs.) Quite a find.
As I have become disabled, i can no longer turn many wrneches, but I still love to know how to do/repair things.
