ADA — Delbert Henry, of Ada, brought his 1966 Ford Econoline truck to the Lima Chevrolet Cadillac Charity Car Show in June.

He has owned if for three years. He likes that it’s unusual. He looked for five to six years and found this one in Florida.

“You don’t see these things anymore,” said Henry.

The Ford Econoline truck was introduced in 1961 and ran through 1967. It was built on Ford’s Falcon line, as a light duty work truck.

A 1965 Ford Econoline made an appearance in the film, “The Getaway,” starring Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw.

While not driving his car to make a fast getaway, Henry does enjoy driving it to car shows.
