Description:

1962 Ford E-Series Van Station Bus

***NEW PICTURES! Well...they're actually about 11 years old, ut they're new to the post! The first set I posted are only a couple of weeks old. I came across the older ones the other day and decided to add them. It has literally traveled about 100 miles since the outdoor pictures were taken. The heavy dust in the indoor pics is literally just heavy dust. Full Disclosure, changed the name of the 80's era Ford Aerostar mentioned below as well (I had mistakenly called it a Windstar). Happy shopping! ***
  • 1962 Ford Falcon Station Bus for sale (that's the official name).
  • 112,000 original miles
  • I'm the third owner and acquired it from my dad (who was the second owner) in around 1988
  • Windows all the way around
  • Seats are not original--they are from an 80's era Ford Aerostar
  • Includes spare tire on original (?) wheel
  • 170 I-6, on the tree
  • It's been sitting for a long time but will run well with a little TLC. Probably not safe to drive without some minor work to make sure the brakes work, eplace the tires, ikely needs fuel tank clean-out, il change, iff fluid change, tc.
  • Some very minor body work needed, ut it's overall pretty rust-free. It had some cracks in the filler material at one time so I immediately sanded it down and painted it to prevent rusting.
  • Falcon badges on doors
  • Interior is basically bare other than seats
  • It of course takes regular LEADED fuel, o you'll need a lead additive
  • Equipped with an aftermarket 1-BBL Holley, ut I have the original which I will include. The new carb is auto-choke, ut the old one is a manual chock using a cable from the front of the dog house. The choke cabling is still in place, o it will easily take the original carb once rebuilt.
  • Includes the original oil-bath air cleaner, teering wheel center/horn button, nd some other misc parts in a box.
  • Comes with THE ORIGINAL keys too! One for the doors, ne for the ignition.
  • Includes an owner's manual purchased about 15 years ago as well.
  • Title is free and clear from the state of Colorado.
  • Sold as-is. No warranties, o returns, o reimbursements, o exceptions.
  • Listed price is firm!! No exceptions!
  • Payment MUST BE CLEARED before it moves from its current spot!
  • You must pick up from my home in Oregon -- I will not ship or deliver under any circumstances.

I have owned this van for about 28 years. I had always planned to restore it, ut never found the time, kill, r money. Sadly it is time to let it go now. It needs a good home where someone will give it the care it needs and deserves! I love this old van. My Ebay username is even tailored after its resemblance to the Scooby Doo Mystery Machine!
It is a blast to drive since you sit slightly ahead of the front wheels. This makes the front seat ride incredibly smooth. The angle of the steering wheel makes it feel like a big city bus too. It is not quick by any means, ut gets you from point A to point B.
It has been basically untouched for many years now. I used to run it every couple of months, ometimes in place and sometimes I'd drive it around the neighborhood, ut it has been sitting in its current spot for about 5 years now. That's what told me it is time to let it go!
Repairs over the years include: new radiator, ew muffler (currently has a Cherry Bomb--it sounds really cool on the old I-6!), ew valve cover gasket, ew heater core, ew heater fan control switch, ew defrost ducting, ew fuel pump, ad generator rebuilt (yes, enerator, OT alternator), ew motor mounts, ew king pins, ew carb. Please keep in mind these repairs have taken place over 28 years, o I'd stop short of using the term "recent"!
It was last registered in approximately 2001. Once it is roadworthy and when you register it, ou may want to do a little work to get the recorded name changed from Station Bus to Econoline or similar. Twice I have been pulled over by the police because the word "station" was in the registration notes they can see, nd they assumed it meant station wagon. It is clearly not a station wagon but a van, o they did their jobs (a little too) well and pulled me over to confirm I didn't have stolen license plates.
Ford put out several Falcon branded vehicles in the 60's including the sedan, anchero style truck, ruck with a van front-end (Econoline truck), nd this Econoline-based version. The Econoline "line" has several variants in and of itself which I can no longer recite from memory, ut Google can tell you the whole story.
Sorry about the pictures too--they don't show the rear or driver's side very well due to its position in my garage. Trust me when I tell you they are both in similar condition to the sides you can see in the pictures. Oh--and I will clear out the junk inside it too, o don't worry about having to deal with that. In case you're wondering what kind of crazy you're dealing with: we live in the woods so the golf clubs in the interior picture are suspended to keep the mice out of the bag. :)
Feel free to contact me with questions. I'm happy to respond as long as we don't get into dozens of emails back and forth.
Thanks for looking!
