Raptor front end on e350

I saw a Russian red 6x6 e350 with a raptor front end. Wanted to find out how close the headlights between the f150 and e350 were. Also fender openings for the headlights and maybe any additional info. My kiddos saw this and have been bugging me about fabbing something you to make it work. Anything would help

If it’s the same one I’m thinking of it’s a pre 92 van, but if you got the skills you can make it work on a newer chassis.

I believe he said the original van was 96 or 97. I was going to try and see the width difference and how much different the front end was in comparison to the 08+ fenders on our vans

This Raptor Van is definitely 1991 or earlier body style. 1992 was the first year of the newer body style.

1991:

I wonder how many Ford vans they’ve got laying around in Russia. I’m guessing the availability of the van had something to do with choosing the <91 body style.

How about running some Raptor wheels?? They’re often on CL around here. New take-offs often with reasonable-ish prices. I’ve often pondered how feasible that is. Need some adapters at least
