1962 Econoline pickup

Makes you wonder why as you get older something like this appeals to one, but it is in the garage and so I do have to look at it. Still a work in progress, so, ideas on what one could do to make it look a bit more appealing would be good. Tires, wheels, it has a blue interior so I suppose that has to stay. How about neat ideas on a tailgate the original tailgates were "uuuugly"?

This thing rooms with a Vulcan Motorcycle, a Diesel powered Cushman scooter and a 41 Chevy sedan and I think it is making them ill.

Wow, think I might pass on that. Have to raise the garage about 8 feet. I wonder what kind of production wheels that have a bit of class might fit on that. Gave it a 200 CID engine transplant for a bit more power.

Thanks for the pictures, I really like the grey color and the chrome steelys/moons. You gave me a couple of ideas. We had a 64 van centuries ago and had a Saint Bernard dog. He would ride sitting on top of the engine hood, people looked at you a bit strange when you met them on the road.

I liked the 61 original. It shows some character to it.

Econoline pickup bed

My pickup bed needs some attention. Thinking about making it structurally strong and covering it with wood. Anyone tried that?

I have a parts truck here that the previous owner did that to. I think he did it to cover all the holes that had rusted through. What I find is they tend to hold moisture under the wood and advances the metal to rust faster. So I would be against that. The wood tends to hold the rains causing moisture.

Wood bed

Good point. I wonder if anyone makes a box liner for them? Kind of doubt it.
