This 4×4 Econoline is just the ticket for delivering all manner of Rocket Skates, Anvils, Dynamite etc.
That is the most rust free Econoline of that vintage I have ever seen.
Well of course it is, it’s from Acme! It’s so fast, it can outrun rust!!!
Add the elusive parachute and PhD’s…
If you recall the few occasions Mr. Coyote spoke, he revealed himself to be highly educated.
I want to see it at speed with its wheels in an oval shape. I presume that it has the Coyote V8. And I’ll bet the brakes sound really cool as it skids to every stop.
…and who knows how many precipices it’s been driven off and been flattened by the chunk of projecting rock that broke off and landed on top of it, only to drive off unharmed in the next frame.
Is that a Quigley? There’s a Quigley for sale at a dealership by me. Military green with roof rack, brush guards etc. looks pretty cool.
Bit early for Quigley, probably an old Quadravan.
Like. I never heard of Quadravan. Cool name. Needs a Quadrasonic sound system 🙂
There are plenty of Quigleys around up here as well as a good portion of the surviving population of 4WD VW Vans.
I have no idea, I suspect the upfitter logos disappeared with the paint job. Given the common parts bin with the Trucks is possibly a DIY swap. I’ve seen some older 60s & 70s vans that were homebru. Of course anything AWD/4WD eventually finds its way up here or to Colorado.
I’d like to have that beast.
I worked out of that van but 2wd and 300 six. Bought it used and killed the engine pretty quick by running service. Rebuilt the engine and found it was a 240 not a 300. That’s a lot of van to push with a 240 so I changed to a 300 and ran it for quite a while. Have no idea how many miles but in about 3 years of service I rebuilt the C6 and the 300 as mentioned above.
Couldn’t kill it then. Wish I hadn’t sold it. Pretty simple to use. A one barrel carb, who would’ve believed that.
According to Quigley themselves, they made their first 4×4 Ford van conversion in 1976. Of course I have no idea what model year this yellow one is. I sure like the way it looks. I have only seen two of these and one of them was a full on 12 passenger model. I saw both of them while cruising the Oregon coastline. Here in SoCal, they would get no respect at all. All the “true” off roaders have their wives drive them around in Powersrokes and Duramaxes with massive lifts.
