We had a real Econoline like this with the side boards back in the day so I had to make a replica of it. I still need to do some decals.
I added interior and scratch built the side boards, tail lights and rear bumper.

Enjoy

    Nice work. May I ask from what the seats and console for the interior originally came? Also, I LOVE the dashboard decal. Please let me know where this decal is available. Thanks. James

    I put 'like it' just to be different !

    Thanks All! The seats are from a Johnny Lightning 1/18 55 Chevy sedan delivery and the engine box is a 1/25 cooler made of resin. The decal is a 1/16 scale JD 3020 dash decal and the steering wheel is No STW-003 from So Mo Farm Toy Parts, somotoys@hotmail.com
    I super glued a styrene sheet cut out for the flooring before painting the truck.
    Here is the complete build http://public.fotki.com/aztom/toys--models/pressed-steel-dieca/custom-large-trucks/nylint-econoline-allens/

    As a collector at first I cringed, but it turned out excellent. Customs done right are awesome. Nice one.

    Thanks Mike.
    I would not have done this to a nice truck. The other side was not near as good as the side shown. I do have a few of these that are in excellent shape as well.

    I figured as much. The build process looked pretty cool, turned out great.
