    General

    Up for auction is this 1974 Ford Econoline Van with a Terrapin custom conversion, finished in black over a grey and black interior, powered by a 302 cubic inch V8 running through a three-speed manual transmission, with 874 miles showing on the clock.

    1974 Ford Econoline Van

    This van is an incredible example of the custom 70’s creations that were so popular at the time, produced by a well-known company specializing in these creations. What makes this example standout is it’s original condition, with less than 1,000 miles ever covered. This is not a restoration example, but a carefully preserved and unused original vehicle.

    1974 Ford Econoline Van

    The Econoline van this custom is based on was a popular starting point for these very personal expressions. The Van Life that is so popular lately really started here, when the idea of having a do it all vehicle meant taking all the luxuries of home with you. The 70’s era culture led to this sense of extroverted personal freedom that threw restraint out the window, and this example of that ethos is as perfect a usable time capsule as you could hope to find.

    Exterior

    The black exterior with airbrushed graphics is in excellent condition. The base black color is glossy, with consistent color, and tight and even panel gaps, with no corrosion. The air-brush flames in orange and brown are very good, with no flaws or peeling visible. The two side murals are also very nicely applied, with no flaws even along the sliding door area, which would show any evidence of contact. The roof shows glossy and clean paint, with no flaws. All glass, including the bubble side windows, are clear and clean, with no issues or flaws.

    Up front, the grill is clean and free from defect, with perfect chrome free from chips flaws. All parts are aligned and correct, and the front “plate’ looks to be from the era, and not a reproduction. Out back you have the same excellent condition as on the rest of the van, with perfect chrome, paint and airbrush work free from flaws or defects, and a period-correct license plate with dealer frame.

    The Cragar mag wheels are perfect, with the machined polish finfish on all four in excellent condition, with newer BF Goodrich Radial T/A raised white-letter tires.

    Interior

    The interior is both fantastic to look at, and in perfect condition. The grey and black shag rug covers the floors, sides, and ceiling, and is free from wear or any matting issues. The raised padded bed in the rear looks inviting, but shows no signs of use.

    The black Formica cabinet houses a functional mini-fridge and is free from damage, and is accented by red, white and blue ornaments in similarly perfect condition. Up front, the shag continues in spectacular fashion, covering the floor, door panels, and center engine/trans hump, with matching white/black checker vinyl seats with cloth inserts in great condition. The dash top, dashboard, and instrument panel are the only items that appear to be stock Ford parts, finished in light brown with a black dashtop, and all pieces are in like-new condition.

    Mechanical

    The stock 302 cubic inch V8 and three-speed manual are in near-new condition. The vehicle has been started and does run smoothly and cleanly, through it has not done much driving, to keep the mileage down. Underneath, there is mild corrosion on some bare metal parts, but everything is stock and proper, with no mechanical or cosmetic issues.
