Why is the Ranchero & the Econline in the same forum

Why is the Ranchero and the Econline stuck together in the same forum? There is nothing related to each other except maybe we are the ugly ducklings of the Ford world.

My personal thoughts is Long as its a Ford thou shall worship it.

The 87 econoline 150 has a nice interior I use to help my friend all the time.... Man that guy was a complete danger to vehicles never took care of anything....

I had to badger him to change his oil for nearly 7 months... and i kept warning him to change his Axle U Joint.

You know what was the result of him not listening? DRIVE SHAFT DROPPED OUT on a hill and the thing nearly tipped over the drop beside the hill.

He always blames police and everything for his vehicle problems but i blame him!

No Econoline is based off any Falcon. Ford installed Falcon nameplates on misc 1961/67 Econolines confusing some peeps into thinking they had bought Falcons when these are all Econolines.

1961/67: Some of the powertrain parts were shared with Falcon I-6's (excepting 1965/70 Falcon 200's & 1965/67 Super Vans), but there were quite a few differences.

Not one body part interchanges except the Falcon nameplate.

Look at the Econoline dashboard, is it the same as a Falcon? No, it is not. See any parts shared with Falcons? I don't either. The seats are not the same, nor is the glass, the door and window mechanisms.

Falcon VIN's are not the same as Econoline VIN's. Falcon VIN's 1st digit is the year, followed by the 1 digit assembly plant code, 2 digit body type code, 1 digit engine code, then the 6 digit numerical sequence of assembly.

Econoline VIN's first 3 digits is the series code, 4th digit is the engine code, 5th digit is the assembly plant code, then the 6 digit numerical sequence of assembly.

Ever see a Falcon I-6 with the Dagenham 4 speed? Shift lever is on the floor. Same trans was available as an option in 1962/63 Econolines, but the shift lever is on the column. 4-on-the-tree!

The only other vehicles besides these specific Dagenham Econolines with 4-on-the-tree that I'm aware of are Citroen ID/DS's and Mercedes-Benz 219/220/220's.

Falcon parts are listed in passenger car parts catalogs, Econoline parts are listed in truck parts catalogs. These catalogs are available on CD's from hipoparts.com.

sorry to dredge up an old thread (again) but that Falcon Club Wagon badge; did all the falcon-vans have the "Club Wagon" piece directly under the "Falcon" piece?

the only badging i have on my 67 is "FORD" between the head lights and on the rear doors, and two "Falcon" badges on the front doors under the side mirrors.

The base Falcon was the Station Bus. The mid range was the Club Wagon. The high-end Falcon was the Deluxe Club Wagon. For 1966-67 the base model became the Club Wagon. The mid-range was the Custom Club Wagon. And the high-end was the Deluxe Club Wagon.

So to answer your question, not all of the Falcons had the Club Wagon badge.

So if I understand what you're saying, the 66 and 67 models were all a clubwagon variant. But then why do I have a falcon badge on my 67?

All of the Falcons had the Falcon badge. Some of them had a second badge.

FYI. The Falcon name was not used until 1962.

In 1961, the vans that would later be called Falcons were called Econoline Station Bus. The deluxe version was the Econoline Custom Station Bus.

Responding to "Number Dummy" 04 16 12. I had a 66 Toyota Stout pickup with the 4 on the tree configuration. Only a few made it over here and I haven't seen one in a couple decades. Look a bit like an old I.H.Scout
