    Nice van but I would still take a 68-72 Econoline van hands down.

    I would bet it was a real job to pull the slant six and shoe horn a 360 in there, would be curious to see the mount setup.

    I had one of these once. Never again. Couldn't stand the thing. Lousy design and awful to drive.

    Had to be the I-beam front axle and no power steering Steve. I owned a '66 A-100 5 window pickup for 25 yearz. /6 W/ 727 on the dash. Swapped the 391 rear gear for a 276 and went from 14 MPG to 21 MPG and dropped the RPM by 600 RPMs at 70 MPH. My Junk Yard beater for all those yearz. lol

    I had one years ago with a 273 3 on the tree so a 360 should be mostly a bolt in.

    I bought a 2nd gen Ford E100 because "it looked cool"
    Driving it home was so miserable, I immediately put it up for sale. Horrible.

    They came stock with the v8 option. 273 or later ones 318. I have a stock one with 318. 360 is mentioned is a bolt in with v8 brackets and mounts. With radial tires and a tight front end I can drive mine with one hand on the wheel . 20160730_162211.jpg

    Years ago, I had a '65 5 window truck with a slant 6 / 727 that I repowered with a 440. Used modified 273 mounts and the swap was pretty simple. It handled fairly well but cooling was a constant issue.

    A friend of mine bought one when we were in high school, I was not impressed with it. He liked it though. You know what they say... A butt for every seat.

    Just the "cabover" experience takes some getting used to. With conventional cars, the driver sits a good distance behind the front axle. However, in my '69 A-108, my butt was on top of the front wheels. I often felt like I was turning corners a little late.

    Yo Greg. Does the Great Lakes A-100 Club still rally at Bakers in Milford every spring? I miss that group, ah Great Bunch. Jer

    I saw a '69 for sale, years ago in Sacramento. Had a 340 in it. By the time I called it was gone!

    Sorry for the few red X's guys. I didn't realize there were that many A-100 owners here, throw me into the mix as well. 69 van w/a 225 /6, 727, 3:55 gears, it doesn't go fast, it just goes! I love the snot outta mine. It used to be a Sears Service truck. Before & after wheels!

    They drove like every other straight axle, king pinned, no sway bar front end of the day. Horrible!!! Lol.

    You didn't drive them, you piloted them like a ship. Try to keep the bow between the navigational beacons.

    I'm not familiar with the group, although I know the Milford area. I had the van for less than a year, and I sold it in August of 1996.
    Actually, mine had power steering (318/727). I believe they called it a "linkage assist" type.
