Hello,
I too am glad to be back in a Van or rather in an old Ford Van. Last year I bought a 1969 Ford E-200 that is the exact same weird green color that my best friend had back in 1973. It even has the same orange shag carpeting, but instead of a 6, this one has the 3 on the tree behind the great 302 V-8.

I'd like some advice if any of you have some wisdom to share. My old left knee and the clutch are starting to have some disagreements and I think that its time to put the green machine up for sale and focus on my (auto trans) 1992 Club Wagon. Thing is, I have no idea how to price the '69. Any suggestions as to where I can find listings of existing vans for sale for comparison purposes, or just flat educated guesses as to what a fair price for a straight bodied, daily driver would be, would be much appreciated.

Could you swap a C4 trans in? Pretty solid combo with a 302.

Welcome from San Diego. Deathorvictory is right; my buddy Jim has a 1969 Econoline Shorty with the 302 and an automatic and it is solid.

Yes, I'm sure that could be done, but it is so completely original now that I would hate to be the one that starts making changes, if there is someone out there that would appreciate a bone stock of this era.
