1961 Ford E-Series Van

This amazing 61 Ford Econoline 5 Window Custom Cab Truck is perhaps one of the very best examples in the country. It was restored from the ground up with a painstaking level of detail and focus on originality. It has been featured in books and magazines and has been a very prolific award winner since the completion of the restoration several years ago. The history of the truck is fully known and the restoration was fully documented in photos.
Very early production truck that rolled off the assembly line approximately the first week of December 1960. The truck was sold new at Palmer Ford in Chelsea Michigan and was the very first of the model to be sold at the dealership. The first owners used the truck to haul produce from their farm to the two roadside vegetable stands that they operated during the summer and in the winters it was stored indoors while they vacationed in Florida. The original gentleman owner died at the age of 90. In 1987 it reached a lady owner in Ann Arbor Michigan and in 1992 on Valentines Day, it reached the fanatical man who jumped into the restoration of the low mileage original. This was a full frame off restoration that has garnered great attention and awards among the Ford truck scene. It was featured in a beautiful feature article in Cars and Parts Magazine as well as being featured in multiple books on Ford trucks. The truck was regularly driven to shows by its owner and has always been well kept and cared for. The truck still remains in impressive condition and is an excellent runner and driver showing only very minimal wear and age.
