I couldnt figure out how to PM Numberdumy, so i'll just start a new thread.
I have a VIN for a 1st generation Econoline Falcon Van. I've been told its a 1964, 1965, and a 1967. I'm inclined to believe the 1967 becuase from what little i know about the VIN, it at one point had a 240ci in it (probably still does, havent seen the van in about 6 years)
anyhow, the VIN is R12AHB54916
ive never seen one that starts with a R... but maybe it actually means something?
Well to be brutally honest, this van is currently in Montana and I'm in Maryland. I'm planning a road trip in August to go get it, put it on a trailer and truck it all the way back. I've owned the van since 2004, and it's been sitting for about 30 years and needs some love.
However, back to the VIN, the guy who owns the field the van is sitting in (Ed) was the one who procured the VIN for the van. I'm not sure which location he read it off of, but it's most likely an E rather then a R.
Another question, is there anything rare or special about a Falcon Custom Club Wagon? I knew it was a falcon window'd van, but does the custom mean anything different? Or did they all get the "Custom" moniker?
