Marc Shiliro's Classic Cars
You're looking at another beautiful classic car listed by MS CLASSIC CARS!
1963 Ford Econoline Cargo Van "Survivor" w/ 53,431 miles
Hello, I’m Marc Schiliro the owner of MS CLASSIC CARS.  You might recognize my name or my business name from beautiful classic cars, trucks and motorcycles I’ve collected and sold nationally.  I’ve got over 20 years of classic vehicle experience.  I’d like to put that experience to work for you.  I’ve learned a lot and I’m educated in many different makes and models ranging from the early 1900’s to current.  Over the years I’ve collected and sold over 400 classic vehicles which I’m very proud of.  I sell a large percentage of my inventory from networking and from the various websites I advertise on.  I sell a small percentage of my inventory at various auctions such as Barrett Jackson.  I’ve set over 15 world record prices on various makes and models.  I’ve also featured many classic vehicles at different auctions across the United States. I’ve had many vehicles that have been featured in multiple magazines and multiple websites.  I specialize in beautiful classic vehicles that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I collect classic vehicles that are already completed and slightly redesign them, service them and detail them. I have also coordinated restorations from start to finish.
 
The MS CLASSIC CARS showroom is located in Seekonk, Massachusetts and was established in 2012.  The MS CLASSIC CARS service department and multiple storage facilities are also located in Seekonk, Massachusetts.  The MS CLASSIC CARS operations are closed to the public.  A private viewing of a vehicle can be made scheduled by appointment Monday through Friday.  The MS CLASSIC CARS inventory consists of roughly 40 classic cars and trucks that we own, service and detail.  We’re one of the only dealerships who document the service work we do to every vehicle with an invoice.  Each vehicle is presented with detailed descriptions and multiple photos.  We offer no consignment inventory.  When you call you deal directly with me. I know each vehicle well and will go over the vehicle of your interest in full detail.  I’ll also assist you with any other needs such as trades, financing, insurance or shipping.  I promise to make the process from start to finish easy and enjoyable.  I take a lot of pride in my business and my reputation reflects that.  I appreciate the opportunity to earn your business.  “MS CLASSIC CARS isn’t just another dealer.  MS CLASSIC CARS is a brand.”

I've been collecting classic cars and trucks for over 15 years now and have seen a lot happen. I've seen the hobby continue to grow not only on the internet and auctions but also with the amount of television shows, magazines and websites that are related to classic cars in some form or another. I strongly believe the classic car market is a great place to invest in. When the economy is strong, the classic car market is extremely strong. When the economy isn't so strong the classic car market holds its own. I've sold classic cars and trucks in both economic conditions. The reason classic cars make such a great investment is because people are crazy about cars, especially classic cars.  These people aren’t just one age group but all different ages ranging from very young to very old.  It’s a much diversified market.  I've learned it's not just people in the United States but its people all over the world.  Roughly 20% of my sales are from people who live outside of the United States.  Some examples would be Canada, Australia, Mexico and Europe.  Also from what I’ve learned roughly 20% of bidders at auctions are also  people who live outside the United States. 

  Over the years I've noticed that the higher quality classic cars have always commanded a higher price. Even people who don't have any classic car experience can recognize and appreciate attention to detail. Over the last 10 years the overall market has been very strong and I believe it will continue to grow.  Certain classic cars prices are on the rise and others are on the decline.  It’s all about supply and demand not about a good or bad economy.  The classic cars that are on the rise are the cars that a lot of people want but there aren’t many on the market for sale.  The classic cars that are on the decline are the cars that a lot of people don’t want anymore and there’s many on the market for sale. Of course, if the car is a rare model and spectacular it will command a higher price as I mentioned. Desirable factory correct classic cars that are documented with matching numbers always make solid investments.  Custom cars have remained strong because each car is different from the next one. They each have their own character and there worth what people are willing to pay.

  Prior to this business I was just a blue collar guy who was working full time selling new and used Mercedes Benz.  I was very passionate about classic cars and trucks so I decided to sell them part time.  Although I had my used car dealer’s license I didn’t have my own dealership.  Overall things were going just fine but my dream was to open my own classic car and truck dealership.  I decided to give up my full time job with health insurance and a 401K to open a new classic and truck dealership.  I had to invest a ton of money to make that happen which required using my family’s savings and acquiring loans such as a home equity line of credit.  I also now would have a lot of overhead that I didn’t have before.  The bottom line is I went all in.  Do you think I would’ve done all that if I didn’t think the classic car and truck market wasn’t going to remain strong?  “I’m putting my money where my mouth is”.

1963 Ford Econoline Cargo Van “Survivor” w/ 53,431 miles


***THIS VEHICLE IS BEING CONSIGNED TO THE UPCOMING OWLS HEAD AUCTION BEING HELD AT THE OWLS HEAD TRANSPORTATION MUSEUM IN OWLS HEAD, ME AUGUST 16-17.  ONCE A LOT NUMBER HAS BEEN ASSIGNED IT WILL BE UPDATED HERE.***


This exciting 1963 Ford Econline Cargo Van is a true survivor with only 53,431 original miles.  Ford Econolines are seldom seen as a cargo van with windows. This van gets a ton of attention and is a blast to drive.  The first generation of the Ford Econoline made its debut on September 21, 1960.  Introduced for the 1961 model year as a cargo van, pickup truck and passenger van, the Econoline began development based on design sketches that were dated 1957.  While remaining a forward–control vehicle, Ford adopted a mid-engine configuration as the engine was placed between the front seats instead of behind the rear axles as on a Chevrolet Corvair, a larger rear door and flat load floor was created allowing for additional load capacity.  The first-generation Ford Econoline was produced from 1961-1967.  As the VIN number and warranty tag indicates this van is a 1963 Ford Econoline Cargo Van that was built April 1963 in Lorain, OH.  It was painted Honey Beige and powered by a 170 inline 6 cylinder with a 3-speed manual transmission.  The gross vehicle weight is 3,600 lbs with 1/2 –ton payload.  This van was originally sold new in Texas which is documented with multiple registrations and insurance identification papers which are all included.  It spent about 10 years in Texas and then went into an indoor storage facility in the early 70’s for about 35 years.   A collector bought it out of the storage facility around 2005.  He did a complete service and got it on the road.  It was purchased by a gentleman in Peoria, IL in 2009 with 45,000 original miles showing on the odometer. He drove the van as his daily driver accumulating nearly 6,000 miles between a 25 mile daily round trip to work and weekend cruiser.  He even took it on a 250 mile trip once with no issues.  He eventually decided to sell the van and it was purchased by a gentleman in Berkeley Heights, NJ in 2010.  This gentleman owned this van until June 2019 and this is the first time it’s being offered for sale since.  During his time of ownership he had it serviced and all the service documentation is included. This van is a true survivor and shows very well considering its 56 years old.  It has the perfect amount of patina throughout.  The original exterior body is rust free and has a few imperfections here and there as expected.  It sports its original Honey Beige paint which has recently been detailed.  Everything on the exterior is original such as the glass, weather stripping, mirrors, door handles, headlight bezels, bumpers, emblems and wheels.  It still has an inspection sticker on the front windshield from 1964.   The original Honey Beige interior is in overall very good condition.  The interior is very spacious and the bucket seats are comfortable.  There is great visibility throughout especially with the side windows.  The rear cargo area is empty and can used for multiple purposes.  The original engine compartment is clean and well sorted.  The engine starts instantly and runs beautifully.  The engine is coupled to a 3-speed manual column shift transmission which shifts very smoothly.  The original undercarriage is also clean and well sorted.  The rear end was upgraded to a GM 8.5” 10 bolt for durability.  Over the years brake and suspension work was completed which is documented on the service invoices.  This 1963 Ford Econoline Cargo Van with 53,431 original miles is a great opportunity.  This vehicle has recently been serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included. 


Unfortunately most classic vehicles that are being advertised for sale by dealers, private parties and auctions aren't exactly what are being advertised for sale.  This is an industry with no real guidelines and everyone's opinion is completely different.  The average consumer doesn’t realize classic vehicles weren’t restored at the factory and are being restored by people in their garages.  Everyone’s level of restoration experience is different and it shows in the restoration.  An example would be a classic vehicle that's  being advertised as an original model with matching numbers could be a phony with a reproduction trim tag and re stamped numbers on the engine block, etc.  Another example would be a classic vehicle is being advertised as a full restoration when indeed only a few things have been restored.  There are many classic vehicles listed for sale that have cosmetic and mechanical issues with such items as the body, paint, glass, lights, body hinges, gauges, window components, steering components, upholstery, engine leaks and tuning, radiators, transmission, rear end, brake components and suspension components.  The consumers are spending thousands of dollars repairing the classic vehicles they've purchased after the sale.  A bad purchase could turn into the buyer’s worst nightmare and be extremely costly!

MS CLASSIC CARS specializes in beautiful classic cars and trucks that are at a higher level of quality than most being advertised for sale. I personally have selected these vehicles and take pride in what I represent.  I'm not a classic car dealer who is only looking to make a quick buck.  I’ve seen dealers and private parties purchase classic vehicles at auctions and online and immediately list them for sale.  Most of these vehicles aren’t being advertised correctly and haven’t been serviced or detailed.  This business is my career and reputation which means everything to me.  I do the best of my ability to represent quality classic cars and advertise them honestly.  To be clear I’m not in the restoration business.  I represent classic vehicles that have already been restored.

  This vehicle is owned by MS CLASSIC CARS and is located in Seekonk, MA.  I personally have seen, touched and driven this vehicle.  This vehicle has been through a service and detail process which is documented with an MS CLASSIC CARS invoice.  I write the descriptions, take the photos, advertise them for sale and answer all the calls and emails.  I'll personally go over the entire vehicle and tell you everything I know about it.  I'll also give you my opinion if it’s truly the right vehicle for you. I’ll consider all trades and also offer financing if necessary.   Once you've committed to purchase a classic vehicle from MS CLASSIC CARS, I’ll make it a very easy process from start to finish.  Once the funds have cleared I'll immediately mail the paperwork USPS 2-day air.  A CD with the description and photos of the vehicle you purchased will be included in the package.  I’ll also assist in shipping your vehicle to its new home.

         If you've read the introduction tab or visited my website you’ll probably agree I'm a bit of a perfectionist and represent very detailed classic vehicles. MS CLASSIC CARS has a great reputation and we continue to raise the bar in the classic car and truck world.  I sell our classic cars and trucks very quickly because consumers see the value.  I look forward to working with you.  Please read my website testimonials and eBay positive feedback.  Thank you for the opportunity!
