Car of the Month: Tim S' '61 Ford Econoline E-100
Tim's 1961 Ford Econoline Pickup E-100 has been customized from the basic work truck to include a 1965, 289 V8 with a C4 automatic transmission, and a Ford 9” rear end, with custom interior and custom paint. It maintains the stock suspension and non power steering that will give you a work-out at slow speeds. The non-powered drum brakes take some “leg” to work well. But is a HOOT to drive! A brief history can be found here: http://www.fordeconlinepickup.com/history/ and more history here: http://econline.org/production.shtml Because this is not your regular pickup it does get some attention where I go with it. Many people remember someone that had one or they drove on “back then”.
