With a couple of the Crusing Van kits in my hands, I’ve started on another project that will be cast in the future. 

Lengthening the kit from 124” wheelbase to 138” for the club wagon, and eventually the even longer super wagon. 

Starting with the floor pan to keep everything straight.

I'd be in for one for sure! Especially if I could figure out how to get a front and rear end that would look like my '94 I had!

Made some progress over the weekend. Floor is done and ready for primer, Frame is lengthened and ready for the rear extension, and, the body has had some surgery.....

1994 would be the final generation of E-Series.

I like where this is going. Are you going to keep it as a panel van or add the windows to a family hauler?

Will you also be working on the appropriate wheels and hubcaps?

I have copies of pages from the body book for that series of econolines, if you want dimensions or copies let me know, the super van extension is wider then the body in the back of the van.

Well, slight change....

Decided to cut out the sliding door,  so I can offer it as an insert, with 4 versions. Slider without window, slider with window, split doors with windows, and split doors without windows.

Worked on door gaps, and got some primer on. Still a couple little spots to deal with.

Yes. 

Im thinking a body, interior, frame, and then choice of side door as a separate piece. 

I will offer the side doors by themselves to fit the short kit body also.

On the passenger side, you'll have to move the rear light up into the dip in the side.

Also, the handle on the side cargo doors should be at the same height as the front door handle.

I've done this conversion, but put ribbing inside, so I have no choice but to make a cargo van. Really cool that this will be offered for sale..

I'm excited to see this progress. Also can't wait to hopefully get my hands on one or two!
