Talking The Evilconoline Build

This gem is a 94 Ford E350. 8 bolt twin I beam suspension up front, Dana 61 open diff 3.55 out back hooked up to an EFI big block 460 and E4OD auto trans. I blew up my F150 back around Xmas and scooped up this beauty from a local car lot for $600. Had it roadworthy in a couple of days and drove it for a while, I fell in love with big displacement so naturally itís time to chop it to bits and make it scary and loud 👍🏻

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Thumbs up Update

I have been picking the van apart over the last few days, factory wiring harness is very minimal Iím gona attempt to keep it intact and reuse as much of it as I can and just unplug the unnecessary bits. Also check out the 2x6 custom bumper mount 👏🏻 Anyways I got this RAD red 48 Chevy 3100 pickup donor body. I was absolutely intent on finding a 30ís sedan for this build but I couldnít pass this truck up lots of great parts, more pictures to come. The van wheelbase is 138Ē the truck is around 120Ē the way it sits. I want to do bags all the way around 4 link and notch out back. Or do I leave the van suspension alone, chop the frame just after the shackles and do a long bed?? Better drink beers and stare at it.....the neighbors love me

Check the track width on both because, the van is wider than the AD truck

Honestly a 30's Sedan or that AD are better suited to other frames. Using what you have is great, but that can frame is going to cause all kinds of headaches for you with engine placement, the twin I-Beam suspension, wheelbase, and probably track width. Do lots of measuring and figuring before you start attempting that.

Default Update ✌🏻

Much progress has been made, been a wild year to say the least. Used a long board to lever the cab on a pair of large wooden spoils lifted the rear with an engine hoist. Dragged the old chassis out and pulled the econoline chassis and lowered er right on there.
