I just saw a shorty '69 that belongs to a friend of my son that has a 170 and three on the tree. It has a faded Radio Shack graphic on the body and the owner is thinking it was a fleet purchase. I had no idea the small six went into vans after 1967 but I am jealous of the mileage he's going to get out of it.

A full van, or one of these?
They came with both small and big sixes.

Call or txt 701540151six thanks motivated seller will trade for 4x4 atv plus cash , or equal value .
The other one is very rusty along the bottom, I find it interesting because of the extra built in tool boxes.

There is a family that lives close to where I work, and I'm trying to convince them to sell me one of these with a small six in it.

It's the second generation, snub nosed one, built from 69 to 74. My Clymer book lists the 170 while the Haynes people do not.

Looking at the Vin code the 5th symbol is the engine code there were 2 engines offered for the 1969 Econolines. :nod:

U = 170 cu. In. Six
G = 302 cu. In. V8

I am still hunting for a project car to build but with my current low budget it's not looking so good. My Ex- Fleet of Sixes these are all long gone! :bang: 1954 Customline 223 3 speed with O/D, 1963 Fairlane project drag car with BB6, 1977 Maverick 250 with C4, 1994 F-150 a 300 with 5 speed.

I think the 4th digit in the vin is the engine code:
Here is a great website for decoding:

Engine combos for 69' were:
A 240 Six
F 170 Six
G 302 2V V8

I've gotten parts off a 74 E100 with a factory 240. That's about al I can comment on. It had a 300 head on it too. I don't know what the stroke is, never measured it.

Jamb sticker, showing "A" as the 4th digit.

1985 Bronco. 300-6, NP435, 4.56 gears, Detroit locker and tru-trac, 4" lift, and 37" swamper tires. 300 has a 4bbl and headers.
