26 Aug Annual Ford Econoline meet at The Museum of Automobiles
Collectors of Ford Econoline vans and pickups will meet at The Museum of Automobiles on Petit Jean Mountain for a show and shine event on Sunday, Sept. 3.
Utilizing many Falcon parts, the Econoline series was introduced in 1961. There were three models – the pickup, the van and the station bus. The pickup looked like a van that had been customized and turned into a pickup. The new van had 39 percent more load space than a typical half-ton panel van. The station bus was essentially a van with a view. It had windows all around with two front doors, a pair of rear doors and two side doors in the center of the passenger side. The Econolines series continued until 1967.
This is the 15th annual show at The Museum of Automobiles for the Econolines. Collectors from Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Missouri and Tennessee come and display their vehicles at the auto museum.
The public is welcome to see these Ford Econolines at no charge.
