LOW OPERATING COSTS
Not only is the Ford Econoline pickup priced low, but operating cost are low too! You save on fuel with economy-winning Falcon engines: you save on tires and maintenance with an I-beam front axle, self adjusting brakes, heavy-duty clutch, and a 6,000-mile or 6-month (whichever occurs first) interval between oil changes and minor lubrications.
The standard Econoline pickup can haul a ½-ton payload. This can be readily increased to a full 2100-lb. payload by equipping your Econoline with the optional GVW package. The big cargo box measures over 7 ft. long, 5 ft. wide and almost 2 ft. deep and provides up to 23% more payload than most conventional ½-ton pickups. And should you want to double your loadspace, reinforced stake pockets hold stake or panel sides securely to support tall and bulky loads, provides easy mounting of load covers.
Ford’s 1965 Econoline features improved performance and the economy of compact design. The popular 170-cu. in. six-cylinder engine is standard this year and has been redesigned for increase power and durability. For outstanding performance, you may select the brand-new rugged 240-cu. in. or 300 cu. in. Six. Whatever your choice of engine, the Econoline pickup provides fine performance at low cost.
