Ahh, if the walls of this sin-bin could only speak! What sorts of antics have occurred in the back of this vehicle, and by whom?

I had a '62. It was so simply laid out and easy to drive. Great visibility- huge windshield. You basically sat on top of the front wheel. It was so easy to park. It's a shame that Ford strayed so far from this classic design.

Sin-bin....Hehe. I doubt she's been used as a shaggin' wagon-No Cragars/Mags, funky 70's paint job, or moon windows.

Had 2 Chevy Flatfronts and they were a blast to drive. The engine cover between the two front buckets served as the third seat in a pinch. Tons of power from the six with a three on the tree. Burnouts were effortless in first and second with no payload. They weighed nothing when empty but handled poorly. Zero grip in snow.
Ralph Nader picked the wrong vehicle for unsafe at any speed. These were it. After 200,000 miles in a flatfront, many fond memories.
Glad I never rear ended a tractor trailer. I'm sure the Ford Econoline was no different.

My uncle had one of these. When he pumped the brakes at just the right speed, he could lift the back tires. Not cool.
