Default 1988 Econoline 150 Okanagan MFG Camper Van


I recently purchased Class-B Okanagan Camper Van that I'm going to try to restore.

It seems to run ok without any problems. However the exterior needs some work and maintenance. There's no dents or body damage however some of the paint in flat areas such as the hood have rust. I was planning on sanding and then painting over the rust areas and perhaps do something to preserve the plastic grey roof.

The van is mostly grey, including the roof with some maroon.

The odometer shows 87090 so it's possible it has 187090 miles rather than 87090.

I'm trying to find out more about the van in order to learn more and to be able to restore the mortorhome.

VIN lookup has little information and the door stickers are incomplete.

Some information found so far

1FD — Ford Motor Company, USA, incomplete vehicle
1988 E-150 Extended Cargo Van
Engine: 5.0L V8 EFI
Anti-Brake System Non-Abs

GVWR 2948 / FVWR FRT: 1403
GVW - 6500 LBS
KG RR 1723

I could not find a build sheet or much information from the VIN. The door decal doesn't have much information.

1G ................ 87

??? = 138
AXLE = 19

Default Ford spring code 44 OEM part numbers

I was able to decode the VIN some more.

I'm still trying to decipher the spring code 44P.

1FD = Ford Motor Company USA - Ford - Incomplete Vehicle.
E = Class E Hydraulic Brakes; 6,001-7,000 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating Range.
E14 = E150 Cargo Van.
N = 5.0L (302) EFI
8 = Check digit, FoMoCo use only.
J = 1988.
H = Lorain OH Assembly Plant.
BXXXXX = 1988 Numerical Sequence of Assembly, the E150's specific serial number.
1G = Light Charcoal Metallic (exterior paint color).
87 = Sold to a Body Company.
EXTERIOR = 138" Wheelbase
TYPE/GVW E143 = E150 Cargo Van; 6,500 lbs. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.
BODY AG = Smoke all Vinyl (seat color/upholstery type).
TRANS T = AOT (Automatic Overdrive Transmission).
AXLE 19 = Ford 8.8" Rear Axle / 3.55-1 / 3,800 lbs. Axle Capacity.
TAPE = No tape code. Pictured stripe on E150 Installed by RV manufacturer (body company).

SPRING Code - 44P = 3 digits: 4 = Front Spring Code / 4 = Ignore / P = Rear Spring Code.

What I'm looking for is the OEM part number for the front and rear springs.
