You might try ebay they will most likely have the seal. the winsheild however will be a little harder to find.

Rubber seals are available from any of the Ford vendors.

Autokrafters
Dearborn Classics
Dennis Carpenter

The windshield from an F100 will work in an Econoline. They make new windshields. Check with your local windshield installer.

66gpw has a good reputation on FTE.66gpw has a good reputation on FTE.
Most glass shops can get you a widsheild. I see you are in south america so that may take longer to get a windsheild and be more pricey.
I got my windsheild seal from Dennis Carpenter.
I have a old address and ph number, but cannot post here. You will have to PM me to get it. They do not provide glass. They provide mostly rubber and plastic parts for the econolines.

Thaks so much to all
I'll try E-bay for the seal or a ford dealer but the glass is a different story I tried the mayor glass venders in Venezuela but no luck.

I changed the old 177 ci for a 250 ci any tips or any idea how to make this engine rum faster and with more torque?

I found aplace call The Streetrod Manufacturing Co. Inc.____that makes a disc brake convercion kit I would like to know if any of you guys used one of the kits o know some one that may used one of this

Thank so much, soon I will put son pic of the proyect.

Did you ask them for an F100 windshield?

Try ebay for the glass too.

the f100 glass is not the same as an econoline, the seal is the right length and style but not the right shape. it will fit the econo windsheild in a pinch, shame it isnt be so easy!

the windsheilds are econo specific. 61-67 are all the same, but i dont know about in venezula. they may have had econos for several years after the u.s.

if you will send me the vin and data plate numbers off of your van i will decode them for you.

pics would be nice if you have them.

Windshield patern/part number is W-603 and is available through most glass houses. Priced usually around 138.00. Macs or Kantors have seals at 38.00
