If you understand Vannin' then you should immediately get excited for this 1976 Ford Econoline 150 Chateau. It earns its estate-like name because this is a true '70s style conversion van built with all the cool/classic creature comforts - right down to the shag carpeting. This custom machine has the right level of preservation/restoration. It started life as a Raven Black machine, and today it retains the kind of shine that makes you proud to cruise Van... Nuys Blvd. You'll love the custom classic features like the dual sunroofs, special roof rack, and iconic Cragar Keystone wheels. And the brightwork is excellent. But also don't forget to inspect the quality of this van. Everything from the look of the glass, to the way the doors close with authority tell you this is a classic that was treated with respect. If you're going to be king of the road, you need a proper throne. That's why the front has two plush captain's chairs with individual armrests that can both rotate to face the back of the van. These were recently recovered this year. Plus, there are other nice modern upgrades like an AM/FM/CD stereo and provisions for R134a air conditioning. But the modern pieces are not what really attract you to this van. Behind the seats is a true 1970s interior complete with tri-color shag carpeting! It's an absolutely retro-cool look with wood paneling, carpeted walls, and a design that will make people remember spending days on the open road. And this one is still set up for adventure with everything from a built-in icebox, to a full table that converts into a bed. Ford's 351 cubic-inch V8 is the right partner for a stout and torquey powerplant. It has the look of originality, but it also has been treated to the right investments - including a newer fuel sending unit and gas tank. It runs smoothly like a proper road machine should. Plus, you have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front. There's even cruise control to keep this a true comfortable cruiser. The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, original warranty card, title documentation, and decades of maintenance records. This is a cool part of custom car culture that has amazingly survived. Call today!!!
