About Ford E-150 Club Wagon
The Ford E-150 Club Wagon is a full-size platform truck manufactured and distributed by Ford Motor Company. The E-150 Club Wagon was introduced in 1961 and is now in its fourth generation. The brand introduced the first generation Econoline on September 21, 1960, for the 1961 model year. The model, developed in 1957, replaced the F-series vans. Three models were offered in the lineup: a station wagon, a club wagon and a front-engine pickup. The Ford E-150 Club Wagon set a number of design precedents that were later used in American cars.
The second-generation Ford E-150 Club Wagon didn't come out until January 1968 because of a long strike by U.S. automakers in 1967. The company sold the car as a 1969 model even though it was made in 1968. In 1969, the second generation stopped being based on the Falcon and became a heavier vehicle with many parts from the F-series pickups. It still only had one-wheel drive, but the engine was in the front instead of in the middle. This meant that the F-Series could use parts like a suspension with two I-beams. Despite the fact that the Econoline's chassis and axle configurations were modified, the van's engine could still be accessed primarily via the cabin. This was accomplished by installing a normal bonnet on the vehicle.

The 1975 Ford E-150 Club Wagon has been completely redesigned. The company was the first American manufacturer to adapt the body design and parts to a full-size car chassis on a completely new chassis. The new generation E-150 Club Wagon is available not only as a stand-alone vehicle but also as a chassis for other vehicles. The all-wheel-drive makes it popular as a van chassis. This design has served as the foundation for a number of other vehicles, as well as trucks and buses of varying types. To increase the versatility of the large vehicle range, the Ford E-150 Club Wagon was originally developed as a body-on-frame vehicle. This configuration not only made the chassis more rigid but also more similar to the trucks.
In the new configuration, the engine was mounted further forward and lower in the body. As before, a double-wishbone I-beam front suspension was used. In order to increase the E-150 Club Wagon's fuel economy without significantly reducing performance, the company offered parts like a 6.9L IDI V8 diesel engine in 1982. In 1988, the capacity was increased to 7.3L. In this configuration, the motor was mounted lower in the chassis and further forward than its predecessor. Some E-150 Club Wagon parts were shared with its sibling: the windows, tail lights, bumpers, and wheels were common to both cars. All of these Ford E-150 Club Wagon parts contributed to the driving qualities of the car.
