Junkyard 83 manual transmission van

Post #1 by BigBlue94 » Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:51 pm

Stumbled onto this unicorn of an econoline today. It's at the All-n-1 yard in KC Missouri, by the stadiums. I left everything, as I have no use for it. I know someone has been looking for one for a long time probably. They generally leave vehicles in the yard for a long while.

Club wagon, with a 300 and a SROD 4 speed(3+OD). The clutch is manual, and all the linkages are there. Also posted this at FTE

Seems like a good idea.

Pulled the pedals, clutch linkage, shifter mech, and shifter rods yesterday. Had to leave a couple pivots for the clutch linkage because I couldn't get them off the frame. Should be able to use about any pivot from a ford manual clutch.

Good score. Not like you can find that stuff easily.

Yeah, I'll probably never need it, but I'm sure someone will some day. Only have $40 in it so it's not hurting to sit for a while. Might make a good swap meet piece.

That trans would make somebody a nice upgrade from a 3-speed.

The ONLY safety device we need is a 6" sharpened steel spike bolted to the center of the steering wheel of EVERY vehicle.

Pedals and clutch linkage are sold, to Rufus.

Still have the shifter assembly. PM me if interested as I forgot this was here.

The van itself is long gone. Probably part of a dishwasher now.
