And they continue saving every day—certified tests have shown that over 16,000 miles, savings in operating costs compared to the conventional panel you may now be driving could top $100! Big 4-ft. doors rear and curbside, plus 204 cu. ft. of loadspace and a floor that’s flat the full length, provide for easy handling of cargo.

ECONOLINE —ALL-AROUND ECONOMY LEADER-this Ford pickup can save $100 on gas, oil, and tires over your present conventional pickup every 16,000 miles. Carries 3/4 ton, offers up to 23% more loadspace. And the loadspace is all usable—the cargo floor is flat, there’s no rear engine hump!

NEW BIG SIX FOR FORD MEDIUMS includes more heavy-duty engine features than any other Six of its size. Never before such long-term durability, reliability and economy at so low a price.

SUPER-DUTY V-8 OR DIESEL power gives Ford’s new highway tractors superb performance. Optional sleeper cab adds only one inch to cab length, permitting 40-foot trailers in 50-foot over-all length. GCW’s as high as 76,800 lbs. Also, wide choice of conventional or tilt-cab models.

    Yep, its so different from anything you’ed see today. By the way wasn’t the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo a Ford Econoline van?

    I sometimes see the pickup but not very often but the 70s era Ford pickups are so common here they never get a second thought from me but GMs and especially Dodges do. I sometimes see vans but like the trucks Fords are the most common and A Ford big rig from that era is unheard of although I see many from the 80s-90s still being used and still Ford is the most common and I had no idea Dodge made semis and why they pulled out of the market first.

    @Hirudinea I thought the mystery machine was a Dodge D100 or what ever they called their van?
