Would you buy a 300k miles van???

Hey guys,

I'm looking to get a '99-03 E350 with the 7.3L
The one I'm currently looking at is an ex-CocaCola delivery van, recent service includes new injectors, glow plugs, fuel pump (mechanical) and rebuilt tranny.
It's got 290,000 miles. I know these are amazing engines but is it getting too high? She's not cheap but comes with some special options not very common and dear to me...

The van will quickly get converted to run on veggie like the rest of my trucks.

Any inputs would be great!

Thanks, that's good to hear.

This van was a delivery vehicle so not sure how "loved" it was but the 2nd owner seems to have maintenance documents.

Thanks again
