1969 Ford Econoline E300 with camper top

Saw this posted in my local CL. Potential to revive this classic. Smog exempt!

That thing could be so sweet. If I was retired and had the money, I'd turn that into a beauty. Born the same year I was.

That's a sweet deal! Anyone got it? I have the exact same van that I'm restoring, would be a shame if he crushed it!

What do you guys think it would take to get this thing to start, maybe replace the fuel pump and charge the battery? Or maybe just the battery? Seriously considering it, if it's not gone before the end of day… a one way plane ticket is $88.00 right now on Southwest...

Ok we've discussed this further and wanna try and buy it. Can someone help us out with getting it and storing it until we or I can drive it back. We are willing to compensate for time and help. Let me know.

Been in contact with the owner Page, someone is looking at it today but I'm second in line so fingers crossed.
