Who says we always have to post about kit cars? Today if one of those days and this one was just too cool and not something you see every day. What you are looking at is a 1965 Ford E-100 Van. It has 50,000 miles on a rebuilt motor, a 3 speed manual transmission, and has had the same human for the past 16 years.
Sure it has a few issues such as a sealed up drivers door and a window that has not do down, but it sure would be cool. Check out the auction here http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575009554&toolid=10001&campid=5337106048&customid=&icep_item=300774343143&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg
He believes it to be a 1971 but not registered until 1978 common with kit cars.
It runs a stock 350 on the Crown style Corvair transaxle. the front end is also Corvair but the frame is a custom 2×4 from Fiberfab.
This would be the last or “late” Valkyrie, it is a bit longer than the early ones and has the molded in front spoiler, you get at the engine by removing the rear louvers and in this example it also has a hatch between the tail lights. the doors are also longer on the late models and you can run one piece side windows.
What’s really rare is this one runs and drives great so it’s ready to play with.

I have always wanted one of these. I also think they are ugly. Does that make sense? The reserve has not been met on this one, but it looks like a good starting point. If the seller has not set his kit car tax very high it could be a good deal for someone. It is none running, but has a clean title and appears to be in pretty good cosmetic shape.
