Hey all!

Can everyone chime in on which of the two they prefer? 3rd den Econoline or Chevy? Also what the size difference is between the two SWB only though.


ps If anyone knows where to find a grille for a 76 econoline let me know

Thanks!

I've owned both, still do.
The GM is a little better/easier to work on IMO. Replacement parts are a little more abundant and less expensive. And I like the 60/40 barn doors much better.
I like the flat floorboards in the 3G Fords and I believe they do ride better. The 3G fords are heavier and slightly wider. I like the body on frame.
So it's kind of a toss-up with me.

I've never owned a Dodge. I did have a Dodge belt buckle someone gave me, but it rusted. lol

Yeah it’s the round light model. Thanks for the input everyone! I’m a Chevy guy at heart but can get my hands on a Ford real cheap right now, might have to hold me over until I can find another Chevy!

Chevy a little more $ but the parts and interchangeability are plentiful
