Vintage Ford Van Pewter Hat/Lapel Pin 

We were at an estate sale and found a pair of cool old Econoline brass cufflinks, one was a 60s Econoline Falcon window van, the other was a 60s Econoline panel van. We were stoked and thought we could do something cool with them. We had a talented metalsmith we know take them apart and make a casting of them. He then made up some molds and created custom hat pins or lapels pins, as well as some key fobs out of pewter metal. 

Now you can own a piece from the past.We only made up a limited amount of them. So get them while you can. They ain't cheap, but they're original!

The pin is 1 1/8" long.

Ford Econoline Vintage Van T- Shirt With Art By Zombie. Sizes Small thru 3XL

Ford Econoline Vintage Van t- shirt with original Art by Zombie. A brand new shipment "hot" off the press. 
Classic slate grey 100% cotton hot rod/vintage van t-shirt, with artwork by acclaimed hot rod artist and vanner, Zombie. The artwork appears on the front only.


Ever since we featured Stuart Cofer's amazing Econoline Pup on Vinvanco, I've been wanting to do a T-shirt design inspired by it.  But you can't just steal another man's Pup and put it on your shirt. So we reached out to out talented friend Zombie and asked him to whip his mojo into a design.
When we got the art from him, we were blown away and did a color study that included a lavender version inspired by Lee Pratt's Nomad. But you as much as I liked it, I just wasn't 100% sold that it was the perfect color. 

After spending a little more time with it, I wondered if a gold color might be worth exploring. 
So I asked Eric, my art director who works for Villa Prints to have a go at it. 
 I thought this shade was perfect and hope you agree.  So there you have it, the first Econoline Pup shirt from VinVanCo is now in store for you in very limited quantities. 
There's gold in them there shirts!
