    Ford created the Econoline Kilimanjaro as the next-generation in safari vans. It was a rugged and spacious 4-wheel drive show vehicle designed to maneuver through swampy jungles or desert sands carrying hunters, rifles, ammunition and a 2-way radio. The exterior was finished in 'Bush Jacket Beige,' and the front, rear and sides of the van were accented in a wide band of simulated leopard skin. The articulated side windows could open and fold back for an unobstructed view, and on the driver's side, there were foot holes to climb-up to the roof. Firestone provided custom F60-15-inch tires with radial ribs running from the edge of the tread. Four of the ribs had the name in small raised white letters. A spare tire was fitted on the rooftop, and a 2nd spare was mounted in the rear.
