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.

    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.

    Thanks for the loves,
    I never did get the decals made but it's still on the bucket list.

    Nice job on the Econoline!!

    VERY Nice work on this!! That's way out of my skill level. Awesome looking Econoline.
    I just placed an order for a new fleet of service vehicles a couple of months ago and found out that Ford no longer manufactures an Econoline. New "Transits" are on their way! So long Econoline:(

    Thanks Nicefice and jscott0363 for the kind comments.
    I love redoing these, I'll have to post some more.
