Ford Falcon Econoline Club Wagon 1964

Fords answer to the VW Kombi. This beauty pulled up at my neighbours and it brought back a flood of warm memories. Back in the 70's we used to pack one of these with three Suzy TM400s and my Rickman Montesa,all our gear and four (uncomfortable) guys and head for Oregon's High Desert, Honeyman Dunes but most often the Tillamook Burn in the Coast Range. The handlebars had to be loosened and free floating to get it all in. Practical, reliable and a warm, dry,but crowded place to sleep for weekend adventurers in Oregon's mainly shit weather.
