Well, not reallya mini van. All I have left on this bad boy is the body and then paint. Any suggestions on color? Don't see to many of these around any more. Its a 1976 Ford E350 4X4. Finished the build on the 460cu. Put in a 3/4 RV cam, headers and duels. Beefed up the C6 and lifted it 6". Put a set of 37" mudders on but I think I will drop back to 35's. Anyway I just thought I would share what takes up my time and money.

Red is always a good stand-out van color. How does it ride, handle, and go off-road in comparison to a 4x4 truck of equal specs? I recall there is a company that still performs the conversions, but they are few and far between in my area. You've got a neat toy.

It's way to big to do much heavy off road wheeling, and very top heavy. I also have a 1974 highboy that I built and thats my go to when it gets ruff. Oh I like red too.

The classics never go out of style.

Yellow. You'll never lose it in a parking lot.

Just bought an E-150 last week, to haul the rugrats to baseball. I'm pretty sure I can park the Pruis inside this thing. Love it.
