Hi, I have a 1978 Ford Econoline 250.
The engine is 351 V8 I am not sure if it is 5.7 or not. Carburetor for sure.
It has automatic transmission.
My question is: what kind of trucks and vans that this engine and transmission can fit in? and what years?
I just put lots of money on this engine and transmission at the shop to get them fixed and run awesome but the whole van was totaled due to a sever accident and I hate the fact that this engine is going to be scraped if i don't find a good truck body (may be a classic one?) and put it in or whatever.
I have access to a junk yard that has some trucks with decent body (but old) that I can get for $300 or a little bit more and drop the engine and transmission in.
Thanks Bert, I have tried it but it doesn't have "econoline". It has everything else though LOL.
It looks like it is a company that has lots of junked vehicles, so the search is going to be within what they have only. It didn't work, but thanks Bert, I appreciate it.
