Hey y'all! I'm Corey, up in Hamilton Ontario.

I'm in the process of buying a '81 econoline E150, pretty excited, little nervous since it's my first, so I appreciate any advice.

I'm looking forward to getting this beauty cleaned up and on the road.

I'm a welder, so I'll be doing the body work myself where I can, so yeah, can't wait to get to know y'all and get some inspiration for this baby.

Thanks! It needs some love for sure, but I think it's got potential.

Nice find! Welcome to the site! Fords are the most comfortable Vans to drive, IMO. Good Wrenching!!

Thanks! I admit, the interior and OG paint is mostly what sold me, so hopefully I can get close to matching it when I do the rockers and door lowers.

The white tank is an external shower system. Seems excessive to me, so I'll probably sell it, but it's interesting.
