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:
[Linked Image]
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.

Ken I was just going to list Bad Cut. That is a killer van. I also loved Journey which I will try to load a picture of. Also True Blue that is currently listed on Ebay.

Bad Cut is still on the road occasionaly, although I haven't seen it since 1993. I'll have to track down the owner and see if we can convince him to come to Vanfest this year. Would be a nice surprise for Ken I am sure.
Here's another great looking Canuck Ford. Strange how many of my favorites are radicals. This one was built by Gibbs who has gone on to be one of the most popular airbrushers of custom cars and trucks in Canada. He still has the van, it is now in primer just waiting for the right time to reappear.

Here's a pic of BlueLemon at GSVR II. Not radical but I think it's awesome that Jim bought it new in '73 in Cal. He took it to a vannin the first weekend and it's been going to eVants ever since.

Here's apic I took at Nats of it. (sort of) I always said mid-Fords reminded me of my dog, so I took a "separated at birth" picture of the line-up. It's just one of the things that make me like this model a little more. laugh

My favorite is the one I'm building right now, it started life as a 93 E-350 Club wagon but will not end up that way.
My plans are to have it look like a real wild window van from the outside and a real wild panel van on the inside.
It has got great potential.

Mid Fords were a real challenge to get the front ends to look right because of there shape from the factory......

Nebula was another van that came out strong for a couple of seasons and dissapeared never to be seen again........

I think this is a picture of flying eagle from 1979

How about the "Gladiator" anybody remember that one? It was always one of my favorites.

I am at such a disadvantage here, I have no pictures. I do have a a large box of old '70's van magazines though, but have NO idea where to find them.

I also remember Gladiator, it was one of the first vans that inspired me to take my customizing skills to a whole new level,before seeing Gladiator I would settle for "close enough" but after that I would tear a project apart if it wasn't right on the button of what I had in my mind.

There are some BEAUTIFUL Vans shown here and Vanishing Breed is one of my top pics!
Thanks for the eye candy!

Bringing this back,
War Lord and Cinderella I really like. Nebula is very cool and after finally seeing what Gladiator looked like, I'm not to crazy over it. War Lord is awesome tho.

I saw it once. It was at the Oklahoma Nationals...the 5th National Truckin. Possibly the coolest Mid Ford I have ever seen. No clue where it ended up.

There have been a lot of great vans. Hard to pick a favorite Ford. Off the top of my head I would say visions. I wish it was still around frown

This might be an old thread but man there are some sweet Ford's out there.
As for me I do have a favorite Ford. It's not a radical custom, it's not fancy and it's far from a show van but it deeply sentimental. It's Outcast. My 13 year old son's 83 E150. It was left to him when my good buddy and club co-founder Big Foot Paul passed away from cancer.
