I just purchased an early Ford van that is identified as a "Falcon" van. It
has the logos on the doors and tailgate. I can't seem to find a listing for
anything other than a falcon ranchero or sedan delivery.
It looks like an early econoline van, but it is original paint and clearly
has Falcon logos.
Anyone seen one or know anything about them??
that is a falcon van. it is the same thing as an econoline van, but with
falcon name plates. some will call it a cheap econoline, and others will
call it a fancy econoline. but either way it is a rare animal. there is a
very good support group at www.tffn.net
over 2500 registered users, and most are very knowledgeable in the ways and
functions of ford falcons.
Well I bought it. It is titled at a 1962 Ford Falcon Station Bus. In
storage since 1974, windshield is broken but the body is rust free.
Haven't hooked up a battery yet. Looks like the same old 200 straight six
Ford was using in everything around the time.
The Econoline was sold as a van, with one or two seats, no rear seats.
Windows were an option either in the rear and right side door or all around.
The Falcon Club wagon was licensed as a station wagon with five or seven
seats and windows all around. It was a 2/2/3 seating setup. Back in '67
I bought one with seating for seven to haul my wife, five children, and all
their 'stuff.' There was also a two seater with an open rear compartment
just behind, like a pickup truck. The driver sat ahead of the front axle.
A straight six of 200 CID or 300 CID was located between the front seats.
since it is titled as a 62 year model, it may have the smaller 144 or 170
cid six cylinder in it. the easy way is to count the freezeout plugs on the
side of the block. the only thing is, I forget the numbers. I want to say 5
plugs is a 144/170, and 7 plugs is a 200, but I think that is wrong.
