Looking good...I'm definitely interested in one.  The taillights of that generation of van look very similar to the F-series pickups of the same era.

Tom, I'm posting two pictures of the 69-74 Ford Econoline van tail lights cause you of all people seem to want to do things RIGHT the first time . I'm also going to include the six cylinder motor box details

 

At this point, I hope to rest my case ..........................

Tom,

AMAZING!!!  You are the "original" 3D printer!!!  Your eye and ability to create replicas is a TRUE GIFT!  I think that I speak for many here by saying that I am speechless...  I too look forward to buying at least two.  My squad ran an ambulance based on one of these(sky blue) and the fire police of another dept. that I ran with used one(white over red).

I'll buy at least two.

 

When I started the Laboratory Division drove these. Full police markings with ladder racks, and kleig lights.

Now there's a build for ya!

Even if the taillights are a smidge off, this thing looks great, Tom. Money permitting I would certainly buy one.

Looks like that time is now: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=81149

 

Is that offset longitudinal front framerail thingy unique to these vans? Maybe because of the twin I-Beam front suspension?

Or it was for driver legroom... the later E-series vans like the AMT kits have that detail also, I think...
