More details! That style certainly has a lot of potential. I think they're some of the best-looking classic trucks, personally. What shape is the body in? Engine? What were you thinking of doing?

you can buy fuel cells fot that style of truck that fit between the frame rails where the spare tire goes.  i believe that all you need to do then is to re-run the fuel lines and run an inline fuel pump.  those are the nicest trucks you can build.  i'm very jealous, its going to be a sweet little whip when its done to be sure.

one other thing i forgot to add was that you can get a window conversion kit for these trucks that eliminate the little folding window on the sides and make your side windows one piece it looks really great.  don't forget to shave the drip rails above your windows Wink

i think its an aftermarket company or you would have to get one built for the best fit, maybe LMCTruck.  I'd have to do some looking around.

Might. But you never know, because there are so many different types of headers, and a lot of them are specific to a certain bodystyle. Usually, trucks have a lot more room than cars, so chances are they'll fit, but there's no real guarantee until you actually try to bolt them up. There are a lot of different factors you need to consider, including the location of the steering shaft, suspension, etc.

You may have to get something custom built, there may be more companies out there making the one piece conversions you're interested in, however the only company I am aware of is One Piece Products, and they do not make an Econoline specific kit.  PM IMVANISHINGBREED he's our Van expert.
