Default I'm baaaaack!!!!! New project!

I'm back and boy did I miss this community. Hopefully my old friends are still around. Back in August I moved from TX to CO and foolishly sold my B. Needless to say, I have been searching and searching for another. Well my friends, I have found a new project and I think it's gonna be a nice one. She's not too pretty now, but she will be soon. Looking forward to reconnecting with you guys as I build out my "new to me" 1993 Ford E250 Econo. Here is a before video: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kzUkuiadQiWI0Ce92

Thanks BBQ. Yep, she rides like a dream too. Aside from the exterior looks, the former owners lived in the country and had dropped some moth balls in her to keep the field mice out. Man o man does that make her stink, but I will be pulling out all the carpet anyway. So I am hoping to rectify that real soon. Other than that, interior is in GREAT shape with new furnace, new fridge, and new water heater. The rest should be cake. As usual, I will post videos soon. Snowing today, so have to wait for this weather to clear up.

Stay tuned!

I don't see Serious Dent #1 in that video!! Congratulations on a great find. I love that style topper on a B. We had a Intervec Horizon (kid sister to the Falcon) back in the 80s with that style topper and we enjoyed the heck out of it for a lot of years.

How bout posting some pics of the interior?

Thanks peppster. Yep, we did have similar vans. Now mine is a little different, but I am happy I found something. Hopefully this project will come out like I am envisioning it in my mind. Should be pretty sweet.

Thanks for the memories! That is so very similar to our old Intervec Horizon we owned in the 80s and we bought it new. As to the mauve interior, why not?? Our Horizon was on a Dodge 2500 with the little 5.1L better known as a 318. The gaucho sofa actually makes a pretty good bed, of course my aging body was thirty years younger when I last slept in the Horizon.

You have a great project there and will get many hours of joy with that rig. You can park a 2500 anywhere. ANYWHERE....except for the height. By the way, that upper bed area makes a great storage area to use instead of using as a bed. Since it will easily accommodate a person sleeping up there, it can really hold a pretty amazing amount and weight of stuff.

Enjoy!!!!!!!

Paul
