It takes a lot more than replacing a couple of door in MI to REQUIRE a salvage title. Somethings not right.

Javier front bumper

"Nice find Mike. That's a Javier front bumper but actually a really clean and pretty nice van."

My first van was a Javier, it did have its problems that I had to sort out, but I only paid $12,500 for it, and it was overall a good experience. Was his motto "no mas carenas"?

From the quote above I take it that Javier is building bumpers for his rides now? Or is it that he always uses this bumper? It looks nice, like an Aluminess, has anyone seen that he sells these separately, are they solid, and if so how much?

I thought you were kidding Bronco when you mentioned the 460! The 460 is one of the better motors Ford produced! I purchased a brand new 1990 Dually crew cab in 1990 with a 460. I sold it in 1999 with 246K miles. I had not spent a dime on any repairs other than a new alternator. I jumped another vehicle in 1997 and it blew my alternator. When I sold the truck, the original water pump had just starting to leak from the weep hole. I believe it to be a phenomenal work horse. I am presently looking at a stock 1996 EB 460 with a bad trans for $800.00. I am thinking of buying it and putting the last Fiberine EB top I have and doing a 4x4 conversion. I have a rebuilt 4x4 trans and t-case. I want to flip it just based on that motor!

I was thinking the 460 was the V10. I stopped counting displacement beyond the 351W that I have.

Roger that! The V10 is 413ci or 6.8 the 460ci is 7.5 and as they say there is no substitution for cubic inches. Why Ford scrapped the 460??? I know all the new dual overhead cams and cylinder specific coil packs but Ford already had design that in their 429ci dual cam. They had the go fast 428 CJ and the 427. The 460 was a great truck work DOG.

Ford did just come out with a 7.3-liter gasoline engine for their Super Duty's. 430 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 475 ft.-lb. at 4,000 rpm.

Good point that is true! Probably for the economy although the 460 was pretty good and at today's diesel prices you are almost better off with gas.
As far as the blocks, probably time period correct. Most lifted trucks/vans rear lift were blocks, add a leaf, re-arched leafs, and shackles. Jeep lift kits may have included front and back springs but just too costly on pickups/vans. As I mentioned they got the cheap route. Vans had not really ventured into the back road exploration like today. They were mainly weekend getaways to the mountains and the beach. Most folks could not afford a 4x4 van, so they played it safe.
Lastly, It does not look like a rear Dana 60 to me but a gauge them by the gear cover.
