The E-Series or Econoline series of vans appeared in 1961, with the second-generation being launched in 1969. It was bigger than the first series, and moved from having the cab over the front wheels to having the cab behind them, thus allowing for a conventional front-engined configuration. It was bigger inside too, with more loads space and space for people. The third-generation van of 1975 was all new, and had a body-on-frame construction. The smallest engine available was a 3.9-liter straight six, and the range went up to a 7.5-liter V8. There were also two V8 diesels, of 6.9 and 7.3 liters. This generation of Econoline was hugely popular. In 1992, the van was completely redesigned again, to make it yet bigger and more flexible as well as more aerodynamic.
