I have a 1961 5 window pickup that was 2 tone (wimbledon white over rangoon red) that also had the side trim on it. I haven't seen any pictures of others with this combination. Are there any production numbers that break down to things like with 2 tone paint or deluxe trim?
ok, heres the deal. 63 was the first year for heavy duty,[i. e. 3/4 and 1 ton], production. there is no breakdown for that year as far as how many heavy duties were produced. but, according to the secret econoline data base, the best estimate is around 2400. that is vans and pickups both. after that they became more common and production numbers were available.
finally got a chance to look at the falcon man site. after some investigation, i found a lot of mistakes on the econoline numbers. several missing models, and numbers that are way off. i also got my new ,macs catalogue today, after some serious talking over the last few years, and some paperwork from ford, they have changed a lot of their numbers and now have the right figures. if you want some serious econo production info, i would suggest getting a macs catalogue. you will be surprised by all the models that were available over the years, and at some of the production figures.
