Built from the AMT Phantom, and painted in colors similar to a Matchbox Baja van I had as a kid. The wheels and tires came from a '66 Riv, and the side mirrors are from a Courier. Other than that it's box stock.

Chuck, I have NEVER understood anyone that would drive a van of any kind wiff dem "Suicide Mirrors ". Yeah, I used to sell fiberglass covers that fit over them. I have them on my 78 Ford Stepside . Soon as I can get a free day, They're going BYE BYE ! I finally found a complete set of Ford manufactured "Below Eye level mirrors " I'm tired of squinting every time I'm backing a trailer into the drive with them on the truck . I like the color on the van .................

Nice build.  I have 2 of those kits now since they were on clearance at Hobby Lobby.  I'm thinking maybe a "shorty" van and then using the cutoffs to make a long one with double axles in the rear.

Nice looking van Chuck! Those wheels from the Riviera really suit it! I've got four or five van kits that I really need to get to some time.

Nice!  I drove one of these Econolines for years as an installer, tough trucks.  Yours looks very cool.
