CC Outtakes: Colorful Fords Of The Seventies


These Ford pickups and vans from the 70s with their bold side graphics are getting mighty scarce. But not only did I find this F100 the other week, but two or three days later, I found the Econoline van counterpart. A double flashback.


Here’s the rear end of the pickup. It’s also still sporting its original wheels.


Here’s the van. It’s unusually rusty for these parts, so it must have come from salt country. Well, if you’re going to rust all over the outside, brown is the color to have. This still has its original wheel covers too, the kind that imitate Ford’s alloy wheel of the times. That design was just a wee bit bit overused, eh?
