The camera died, so i only got 2 pics for now.

Here she is 91 Ford Glaval conversion. Shes a little rough in the body but a solid runner and all the parts are there to make her nice. cant beat the deal, y'all know me. Never more than $500 for anything. this one came in at $450. Going to need a fair amount of rust remediation to be had.






This is my rebound after the devastating loss of my beloved Olds. I'll turn her into a decent looking road trip wagon.

Its a 300 I6, auto with 150k ish miles on her.

I think you will REALLY like the fuel injected 300. It is the perfect motor for a van. It should be able to give you over 20 MPG if you keep your foot out of it. Good luck with your new toy!

Thanks Reed! Ive had a couple 300 I6 ford trucks before. They were great. My 79 had a 1 bbl carb and gave me well over 20 mpg with a 3 speed stick. It kinda has a stumble at half throttle or so, but i figure a good tune up will help that. Im pretty excited to have me another econoline. The best riding vans in my opinion.
