New Van Owner Alyssa


Introduce Yourself…

Hi, My name is Alyssa, I’m 23 and I just recently bought my 87 ford e150 club wagon & hopefully am going to start renovating it soon. I live in the metro Detroit area of michigan. I’m looking forward to being a part of this forum!


Hi congrats!
I had an 88 150 with 302 motor. Got 235,000 miles before the body fatally rusted out. Replaced tranny at 100K miles. Still I was able to drive it to the scrap yard at 235K. lots of road trips and steady 14mpg’s @ 55mph. Loaded or empty. If you can.find them used the flex steel capt chairs make for super comfy cruising.


Welcome to the forum Alyssa,

Do you mind sharing some pics of your rig?



The older vans are gold if rust hasn’t killed them. Get your frame, suspension, and steering throughly checked out by professionals before putting any money into a conversion.
