This ’50s Ford F-100 Panel Van is a Sweet Treat

Panel vans get a bad rep. The whole no-windows thing kind of made them a perfect display of creepiness, not to mention they aren’t always the coolest-looking vehicles in town. But if you go back to the ’50s, the old F-100-based vans are pretty sweet, especially if they have color-matching two-tone paint jobs like this example.

That mates with a floor-mounted three-speed Hurst shifter. The brown bench seat is apparently out of a Lincoln, a backup camera was recently added, and Autometer electric gauges were added. If you’re in New York and have $22,000 you’ve been looking to get rid of, this is worth a look.
