There's a 1965 Econoline short panel that was just released to Newark CA Pick N Pull on 1/7/21. I haven't visited as it is too far out of my way but it might be worth checking out for someone looking.

Charlie...looks like there are some great junk yards out where you are. Here they hardly ever have vans and they are all 2005 or newer (they are quick to crush everything....especially if it is over 20 years old). I would be in those yards all the time if they were near me!!!

Cali realized rust is as good as gold ... but once the yard is cleaned out by one of us .... Not to many old ones show up .

Ive never seen a Old Show Van in my yards...

Pick N Pull has a website and inventory with pics for all of its yards. I check it from time to time and plan my trips.

From what I’ve seen, the yards in Los Angeles are insane. They get classics but they’re usually stripped within 48 hours.

Total shame because the Solar Scoop was rotted and cracked. Still pretty cool though.

You can see this one from the highway. Apparently they don't let you go wander the yard these days (covid) but it shows up on google maps. It looks to be in decent shape.

Those two Mopar F Bodies look pretty nice. Usually they’re just rust.
