by Thomas West

The Econoline is a large van, sometimes called an E-Series, that is manufactured by Ford. The Econoline is truck-based and features separate body-on-frame construction similar to the F-Series line of pickup trucks. The Econoline is available with two different gasoline V-8 power plants.
