Explore Vans Style, Cool Vans, and more!

In the fall of 1974, my husband bought a brand-new Ford Econoline van very similar to this, except it was cream-colored. We drove it ALL OVER this great land of ours, from sea to shining sea, and kept it 14 years, until it was very badly rusted out. I’ll never forget learning to drive with a standard transmission in our van, learning to trust the bubble mirrors, and asking whoever was in the passenger seat to “pull that mirror in a little bit, please. A little more. Perfect!”
