Awesome 1964 Ford Econoline Van Restoration

by Kenny Hoeschen

The Ford Econoline vans from the 1960s have the sort of looks that only a mother could love. With the cock-eyed split front grille and headlights, the driver’s seating position over the front wheels, and the look of a giant box rolling down the road, it’s a van that could only appeal to tradesman and, maybe, Scooby Doo and the gang.

But when Gearhead Flicks needed a new vehicle to haul their gear, he decided to restore and customize the 1964 Ford Econoline and created an amazing vehicle in the process. Beginning with a $1,500 Econoline he sourced off Craigslist, the help of Adrenaline OffRoad & Customs in Tomball, Texas, Innovative Rides in Houston, Texas, and a few other experts in automotive customization, the new Gearhead Flicks van was born.

Not only is the Econoline’s exterior amazing thanks to the new two-tone paint job, new chrome plating, and the custom Gearhead graphics, but the interior also received a great deal of love as well. The van is equipped with a 55″ LED television, along with a Rockford Fosgate amp and speaker system. The dashboard has been redone in an incredible silver-red-and-black motif, which is matched by the newly painted engine block with a new red air intake. The original Ford emblems on the outside were rechromed and really pop against the glossy black paint. Finally, the van is fitted with a pair of great looking chrome dual side pipes to finish the look and give it a throaty sound moving down the road.

Of course, Gearhead Flicks do what they do best and documented the entire process on video. Shaggy would be jealous.
