1964 Ford E-Series Van Cargo

Mystery Machine, not exactly but it could be.

Details:First and foremost this is all original. The body is reasonably straight but has rust in various areas due to having water frequently dripping inside from carpet cleaning system which is no longer in it. There is a dent in the front above the bumper a few in the back doors and one on the back rear quarter panel. It is missing a headlight and one of the mirrors. (I have the headlight and needs reinstall). The interior is in fair condition. The seats are not torn but aged from the elements. the glass is straight. The dash and front cab area is all there and in good condition. The engine is in good condition but needs the head gasket fixed, (most likely could use valve re-seats and resurface etc. Id do hoses and belts as well).
The transmission is in good working order. It needs tires and might need a brake job after all these years of sitting. All doors open and close well and this was never in any accidents except for a bump into something which dented the front as seen in pictures. The undercarriage is not rusty like the body. It is in good shape and the steering/suspension/shift linkage/emergency brake/wheel and steering components are all in good shape. Just tires and brake pads and it is ready in terms of the under components.This is a good project and has real potential with all original motor and tranny.
The best points of this van are:Long time owner, I drove this myself for a few years and its fun with a good strong engine.All original everything, (even the radio). The only upgrade or non original parts added are the wheels and the paint. There is however sheet metal installed inside which line the walls and floor. This was to deflect water from carpet cleaning system.
The bad points: Rust. The body is fairly straight but where there is rust, its deep. it does not penetrate the floor like you would think though I have not seen under the sheet metal since the 90's. The areas of rust which can be seen are random mostly on bottom of a few doors, spotted areas of floor and under windows. some on top edges, (see pictures).The seats are original as is everything else including the engine.The engine is still installed but the head has been removed at some point. The head is there with the Van.
This classic is sitting in a rental shipping container for the last 8 years out of the elements and I do not believe there to be much mechanical work to be done for it to be on the road. The body is what needs the TLC. If you are mechanically inclined you most likely could spend 2 weekends and 3 or 4 hundred to have this baby driving around town turning heads. The body will take some work.Clean title in hand. (yes its a pink slip). Comes withThis is a body workers special.This is indeed a classic year and model, we hope to see it go to the enthusiast who will bring her back to life. Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thanks
Please ask all questions before bidding. Also, please see the vehicle in person in N. California. Pick up local or shipping must be arranged and paid for by the buyer.
I've decided to leave it all on this listing as my last attempt. If it does not sell, I'm going to keep it indefinitely and probably restore it myself.Thanks for looking.
