Don't want to see Brand F get left out of this lovefest. What's your favorite Ford Van?

I have to say...

I agree, Flying Eagle 2 was/is an awesome Ford. Here are 2 that are my favs. First is "Time In A Bottle". Was from San Diego,CA. & remember seeing it in the early 70's in a car show at a fair. Was probably the 1st custom van I ever saw in person. I couldn't have been but maybe 8 or 10 years old. Loved it.
[Linked Image] Wonder what happened to it?
Also, this Ford is at the top of my list. Ken Jones "Harem". Awesome 6-wheeled show van that won everything out here in CA. & was driven all over. Met him at a show & he was a great man. Even let a friend of mine climb inside the van! Sad that both he & that van are long gone now. Heard it was sent to a wrecking yard. Hard to believe,should be in a museum. Brad

I'd have to agree with you about the earlies. I guess I tend to put each generation of vans in their own group.

I don't have a favorite "themed" Ford van so to speak, but my favorite Fords are the 68-74 models.

Having owned the first 3 versions of the Econoline I will tell you my favorites of those eras. For the early Ford I will have to go with Vanishing Breed too, great looking van Mike ! For the mid Ford my long time buddy Ace built the Ace of Spades back in the late 70's. It still looks great today:

Not sure what the next version is called anymore (late, new whatever) but the 75 to whatever Ford that I like the most would have to be Primecut. This picture does not do it justice as it was taken from the grandstands of Watkins Glen while Howard was racing around the track with it at Van America 1978. The workmanship on this van was incredible.
