2014 marked the final year of production for the Ford Econoline van and OPTIMA Batteries' Cam Douglass, decided to send the line out in style with a special build for the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The 2014 E350 model is currently under the knife at Ujoint Off Road, receiving a four-wheel drive conversion and a laundry list of upgrades that will eventually result in a vehicle that matches the sponsor rendering. The list of supporting partners includes:

Once the transformation is complete and the Van debuts at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, it will go into duty as the OPTIMA Live Event Command Center and Track Day Headquarters. The rig will essentially be converted into a "4x4 Limited" mobile office, paddock and off-grid video capturing headquarters. The van will not be a bug-out vehicle, but it will have the capability of going just about anywhere and staying there in comfort. It will have all the necessary amenities needed while doing serious work capturing and streaming live video from grassroots motorsports events and serving it up to an online audience.

The E-350 is not built to be a camper, but rather a nice office with a comfortable place to work, eat and sleep. At the SEMA Show, it will be a focal point of the OPTIMA Booth located in the heart of Central Hall (#22755) and will be used as a meeting room with customers at the show. This van will be the fifth SEMA vehicle built by Cam Douglass, OPTIMA's Director of Product Development Marketing and will promote the best high-end aftermarket enthusiast products, that can easily be installed. All former SEMA vehicles build by Douglass had either booth placement or premium "front door" exposure at SEMA and received extensive magazine coverage, including many feature vehicle articles.

The 2016 season promises to be exciting, as the E350 is scheduled to cover approximately 20 of the most high-profile grassroots motorsports event sponsored by OPTIMA Batteries, so there's a good chance you'll see it on the road, at the track or at an event near you in 2016. The only piece missing for this high-profile project is an appropriate name. Tell us on our Instagram, Twitter or Facebook page what you think the name should be and if we choose your suggestion, we'll send you a free OPTIMA battery (lower-48 States only)!
