1972-1974 Ford Econoline

Wandering around Arcata, CA on one of its few sunny days, I found this almost forty year old van parked by an old house and still kitted out for work.The owner probably just keeps this Ford running out of nostalgic longing, and though I don’t share any fond memories of the late sixties and early seventies, I always kind of liked the look of the period’s Econolines. Seeing their broad faces puttering around town was a pleasure of mine growing up in Northern California.

If I had my way, all work vans would be just as customized as this Econoline, and there would be dekotora masterpieces and high-riding custom Transit Connects serving the utility needs of the country. Until then, let nostalgia rule in bringing some style to the cost-driven world of work vans.
