I purchased a brand new 1975 Ford shorty van when the new body design change was made.. I customized it , drove it all over the East coast, and across the country and back twice. I was young, living at home, but basically spent most of my time in that van. Cruised, camped, visited friends at colleges, did deliveries for my Dad's business, you name it. Had it less than three years and it was stolen while I was doing a delivery in Brooklyn, NY. Never saw it again. I've had several vans since then, but they were always more work vans. More recently, as I'm getting older, I've missed that blue '75 shorty. Started looking to purchase and build a re-creation . Luck just dropped in !!!..... Purchased this 1975 shorty in NY. Same year, color, motor, interior, wheels as mine had !!. It has 49,000 miles on it. Recent re-paint in original color code. Should be on it's way here soon. Can't wait.

If it is my old van, I'm thrilled to death that someone took such good care of it (hmmm ...I even had the tire carrier). I will post more pics when she gets here. Thanks for the enthusiastic replies.
