“Van Go” – Ford Econoline

Van Go - Church Magazine's Econoline

This Econline is owned by Coby Gewertz who runs a magazine called Church which he describes as a merging of his 2 passions – automobiles and good design.

This van known as “Van Go” made its debut this year at the 2011 Grand National Roadster Show this year which features some of the best customized vehicles across the America.

One of the most noticeable things about Van Go is that it is low – really low – and all the necessary suspension modifications were carried out by Kevin Francis and Steve Rose at KA Custom.

After the body had been shot blasted and was ready for painting it was handed over to Tim Conder who beat the body back into shape and sprayed the final paint. He was also responsible for all the little modifications that are often missed such as hiding door hinges etc. Coby credits him with being the most creative person he knows after suggesting ideas for the interior wooden floor.

The bumpers were created by Steve Rose at KA Customs and hug the body tightly which looks great doesn’t it?

The van is intended to be used as a mobile show room to show all of Coby’s merchandise that is available on his website. In order to create the unique look he was looking for he turned to Pablo Perez who is very good at working with wood. Coby wanted the interior of the van to capture the look and feel of mid century architecture rather than that of traditional car interiors.
