1966 Other Makes EconolineI was told several years ago by a classic vehicle appraiser that once it is restored there is no telling what it could sell for if listed at auction for Barrett Jackson or one of the other large auction houses. I have held on to it in hopes to be able to have it restored and auctioned myself but have decided to see if someone else wants to take on the task. This was mechanically restored in 1992 and driven. It has been sitting since then but both the engine and hydraulic lift worked fine at that time. Pictures and videos in links below.
