  1. NOTE, I thought this was a E350, it's an E250. I'll try to edit the posts here with the correction. Been thinking of this one for some time. Been a fan of Terry Fox since he did his run across Canada. Unfortunately he didn't finish, I was to young at that time to know what was going on. He was born in Winnipeg and moved to B.C. sometime when he was young, so there is a connection to me since I to was born and still in Winnipeg. I decided to make a model of the van used. It's a 1980 Ford Econoline 250 campervan. It was leased from Ford when new and returned after Terry died. It then went to a couple of owners as a camper and ended up in Vancouver after being used by a band. The van itself has a happy ending. It was bought and Ford Canada did a full restoration on it. More of a preservation, there's a neat story of it online. It took a week to clean the carpet in it. It's in a museum in B.C. now. Someday when I get out west I'll take a look at it. The only Ford van close to the one used on his quest is the AMT '77 Ford. All the kits of that van are the same aside from a few options in each, namely wheel options. I had to get the surfer version since it has the stock wheelcovers. I did get the AMT car body car trailer hoping to use the wheels covers from it but they are a bit different. I have one other van for parts, it's one that had the quarter panel extentions for a dirt bike deck. It was built but badly done. It's being used as the donor for the body panels that I need to lengthen the new one. I cut out the rear doors and glued them on to replace the sliding side door. Thought I was home free till I started looking for a good side view to measure the length of the rear extension. I found a good picture of the same type of van and sized it on screen to the model. The side doors are 3mm narrower each. The side windows are square. So the rear and side doors are completely different. I had to remove the doors and section 3mm form each. Now to rebuild the rear. Here I'm attempting to make the body as straight as I can. It'll take awhile for the glue to dry. On the backside is the grill under the clothes pins.
