        If you can't find it on Google, go to Jalopyjournal.com (the HAMB) or hotrodders.com and type in econoline axle or flintstone flyer in the search box.

        Those sites have a ton of knowledgeable folks that have accomplished a lot of the difficult issues with the hobby. There is also a ton of tur*s that you just ignore.

        I use them a lot. You'll need to register but it easy and no cost.

        An excellent resource.

          Ever since I first saw your post- I've been trying to remember where I had seen pictures of that car~ besides in magizines. Now I remember!!! It may be the real one, or maybe a 'recreation' of it, but there are pics of it on the H.A.M.B. SOMEWHERE...

          Sorry I can't help any more then that, but they have some insanely long threads over there- 1000's of pictures in some of them- seriously.

            Here is the picture from the HAMB.

            It doesn't show the front suspension though.

              That's one of them, yes. I seem to remember seeing some bigger ones, too.
              I think it was at a show somewhere? I knew I should'a saved them~
              or a link to them... [:0] [B)] [V] [xx(]

                Thanks for the leads.I have exchanged emails with Dave Koffel,and the current owner.The car is in storage,or he would have sent me some pics. I am told it used the stock frame and a econoline front axle.I want to see how the spring mounts are attached to the frame. I am curious if they plated the frame or what. I am also told it used a Corvair box,and how that hooks up is a mystery as well. I am off to the HAMB.Thanks again!
