New owner of '66 Econoline Supervan

Stumbled upon this forum while searching the web for anything Econoline. I'll be using my new 66 as a work van in operating my mobile bike repair business. I just bought it last Saturday 4/7/18 in Cleveland and it's due to arrive tomorrow at a local garage here in Maryland, 15 miles north of the DC beltway. It will be inspected in the upcoming days. Priority items include repairing parking brake, repairing turn signals and flashers and adding lap belts. First question - Are there common issues with signals and flashers? I'd like to go with the original set-up, but I've seen aftermarket turn signal/flasher units which mount to the column. Thoughts? That's all for now - you'll certainlly hear from me after the inspection. Cheers.

The turn signal switch can go bad. Find replacements on eBay.

Thanks!



She's only 3 years younger than me, but is in way better shape.

Thanks a lot - OEM is the way to go. I'm just learning how and where to find parts. Your help is much appreciated.
