Here is a rare panel Van made by THAMES (English Ford) called a Freighter 800. It has a clear Wyoming title in my name. It has an 84" wheelbase and sports the original 1703 cc 4 cylinder engine (55 hp) and 3 speed column shifted synchromesh trans. I have the ignition key. It has independent front suspension (A arms) and a leaf spring regular rear end similar to the Ford Econoline vans. The engine is free, but I did not attempt to start it. It sat outside for many years in Colorado, so needs fuel system checked, brakes rebuilt, and all you would do to start such a project after sitting so long.

I understand some were imported to Canada and some made it down to the US, but have no idea how many are still in the states. It has 4 original rims plus an odd Ford rim on pass front (could not click 4th hubcap on this one). The rear cargo door handle is broken, as is the pass door outside handle (I have included them in a bag next to 4th hubcap). It is missing the following parts: air cleaner, 1 headlight ring, 1 windshield wiper blade. and the 2 curved rear bumperettes. It has some odd chrome rear bumper hung on it.

Front windscreen is cracked, rest of glass is good. Of course rubber parts are not good. There is one rust spot in rear cargo floor near pass door about 2" long by 1" wide. The front floors have rust but would be easy to fix. Each lower cowl down near front bumper has rust on outside skins (see close up pics of each side). There is one large dent on lower driver panel 1/2 way back (see discolored area in pics). Some other small dents to fix, nothing bad. Original plywood cargo floor in good shape. Yellow color was original paint. I have included pic of headliner, glove box and driver door panel....these are not in good shape but can use for patterns.

Van is in Encampment Wyoming just 4 hrs from Denver and 1 hour south of Rawlins near I 80...zip 82325. I can maybe deliver if not too far (email for quote). $500 non refundable payment due immediately via Paypal once auction ends, rest is by Bank Transfer only (or balance in person before van leaves).
