Spotted in Switzerland (Europe)

A Ford 4x4 van from the 80's (I guess) with a poptop!!!

Owner says transmission has been removed but restoration would be possible... rarity here!!!

Dude, that pop-top would fit your van as well as anything... got a smaller footprint than the SMB tops, so it doesn't need the exact profile edges on the front and rear, nor exact length...

Spotted in a local shopping centre car park:



Is this a E150? They are far fewer Ford vans than Chevy vans over here...
