We at MotoeXotica Classic Cars have a new rolling conversation piece, a 1988 Ford Econoline HarleyDavidson Edition Van. It left Fords Lorain, Ohio plant as an incomplete vehicle before it was sent to Utilimaster in Bristol, Indiana for conversion. These were Ford official hightop conversion vans only available to Harley dealers. This particular conversion took place between November 30 and December 8, 1987.
The black (code 946) and orange (code 3094) paint and graphics are in great condition for being 30 years old. The windows are intact and hazefree while the rectangular headlights and slim taillamps are in great order. The vans bodywork is straight and solid.
The engine bay is in decent condition, while the cargo area is in great order. The chrome bumpers still shine brilliantly. This model rolls on Firestone Destination LE2 radials, size P235/75R15 at all four corners. Each wheel is wrapped around an Ultra chrome wheel. The tires and wheels are all in overall very good order.
Under the short hood is a Windsor 302 CID fuelinjected V8 engine mated to Fords AOD fourspeed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include airconditioning, cruise control, power steering, power brakes, power locks and power windows. The air conditioning operates but blows warm air only so it may need a recharge or service work.
Inside, the charcoal gray interior with wood accents and curtains is in overall great shape. The front buckets, middle captain chairs and rear bench seats all look great. The front seatbacks come with HD embroidery. The matching gray carpet is in decent order while the light gray headliner looks great. The twospoke steering wheel looks great, as does the instrument panel while the inner door liners are in satisfactory order. The van has a factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck. A Citizens Band radio and a fiveinch TV also come with the van.
Unlike its predecessors, Ford designed the 1975 Econoline with a true twobox layout. Similar to theFord Transitof the time, the configuration moved the engine as far forward as possible and lower in the chassis than in its predecessor; although the hood was nearly twice as long, the hoodline was much lower. A higher degree of parts commonality with the F series made itself known in the bodystyling: the vent windows, taillights, bumpers, and wheels were common items between the two vehicles.
During its sixteenyear production run, the exterior of the Econoline/Club Wagon would remain almost unchanged. In 1978, the Super Van/Super Wagon was introduced; based on the 138inch wheelbase, it was a rear body extension allowing for extra cargo room or an extra row of seating (for up to 15 passengers). In 1979, a minor facelift updated the grille design; round headlights were replaced by rectangular units. In 1983, the Ford Blue Oval was added to the grille, replacing the FORD lettering on the hood.
Inside, the redesign of the chassis expanded interior room, though the rear of the engine still remained between the front seats; an engine cover still provided access for servicing. Sharing many controls with the F series, the new design also improved interior ergonomics. In three body sizes, the Econoline was produced in a cargo van and passenger van, with the latter produced in three trim levels; base, Custom and Chateau. In addition, the Club Wagon was produced solely as a passenger van. After 1980, this was replaced by Fseries nomenclature of XL and XLT. In line with the F series, the Econoline/Club Wagon was sold in 100/150/250/350 variants, with the Econoline 100 discontinued in 1983 (Club Wagon chassis variants were not denoted).
Competition to this Ford van in 1988 included Chevrolets G10 van, Dodges B150 van and GMCs VanDura.
