Pm 868cotty. He’s knows the company that sells though. Keep in mind, those are for the chevy vans. Wish there was something like that for the fords.

Those are metal panels. That was a work van option.

Had some enterprising outfit been a bit forward thinking any E-Series factory equipped with factory windows could have has something quite similar fitted and sold to the SMB-world. I have a friend who owns a Chevy work van with this option and its absolutely miraculous as a work truck option. With a built-out interior these same panels would be equally amazing with the increased cross air flow and nice vistas too.

Sadly that option never found its way into the Ford vans---boo hiss.

Ya, many of us have drooled over this possibility and, as a photographer, I would really appreciate it. It even gave me pause at one point to consider switching to the Chevy. Then I came to my senses and just got a poptop. Better all around.

I have an E350 window van with a large, driver side pop-out window. I was wondering how far open it would go if the latches didn't constrain it.

It seems like a mod waiting to happen.

That sort of modification would lead to sure breakage of the glass. As said those shown on GM vans were metal or fiberglass panels designed to deal with wind loading that will try to lift them and be able to withstand slight rough handling or abuse.

The GM versions have true rather heavy duty albeit small footprint hinges intended to swing just under a full 90* upward movement.

BTW IIRC that GM option was under $3K over the cost of the base vehicle, exclusive of any other options added during manufacture.

HTH

The design of the Ford van pop out windows won't allow the opening to be much more than the stock design (maybe 3-1/2"max). The range of movement all comes from flex in the mounting gasket and flex in the 2 metal plates that look like they could be hinges. There is no actual hinge.

I modified my 2006 E350 with one of these. It took a bit and I love it. Had to add some to it as the replacement was smaller than where I wanted to put it...also had to figure out the weather stripping. I ordered it from a wrecking yard in PA. Had it shipped to MO. It came with all the parts, 2 actuators, lift pistons. The guy who did the work....???? wish I had gone to a body shop...live and learn. It works though!
