Ford introduced its Econoline E100 series in 1961 which included the following body types; van, station bus (window van) and pickup. These unique cab-forward pickups, along with the Ranchero, were constructed using the Falcon platform. The 170 cid inline six engine is located between the driver and passenger seats and were capable of producing 105 horsepower. These pickups were relatively light, weighing in at just over 2,400 pounds. These Econoline pickups lived true to their name, getting nearly 30 miles per gallon. There were 7,400 of these pug-nosed pickups produced in 1965. Unfortunately the Econoline pickups had a short life, being discontinued in 1967. These pickups, as well as their counterparts the Chevrolet Corvair side-ramp pickups and the Dodge A100 Little Red Wagons, have seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years.
