Bought me a 1993 E350 w/ 7.3

Got another diesel in the stable. Bought my neighbors 93 E350 van. They bought it new and has lived 1/4 mile from me all its life. I know the history of this van, have most all the service records. They wanted to sell it, and I had to jump on it. Thing rides like a big Cadillac. It sat outside its entire life, needs a detail bad, but the inside is like brand new, except the front seats sun faded a little bit.

Has the 7.3 non turbo, 4.10 limited slip rear end. Inside has 6 Flexsteel captains chairs, and a bench in the rear.

A buddy of mine was gonna go 50/50 on it, after thinking that over, Im not too crazy about that idea. I never co-owned anything before, and I know how I am and can see problems in the future. I may just 100% own the van and he chip in for repairs, insurance, and fuel.

I paid 1/2 so far, and gonna pay the other 1/2 later this month on the van. I know the owners very well, been neighbors all my life, hell I even mow their yard, so the payment thing works good for me.

I go to several tractor shows, tractor pulls, car shows, etc during the summer with some buddys of mine, so this would be great for that. He would use it for vacations with his family. Do either one of us need it? No. Can either one of us justify it? Ummmmm, no. But I know the history of the van, and for $2700 I couldnt pass it up. My Ford dealer said yesterday if it was on their lot, they would ask $5000-5500 for it and it wouldnt last long. I can always sell it and get my money back or make some.

Nice! I cant count how many times I think it would be nice to have a big rig like that for long trips. A crew cab pickup gets small quick with the wife and the dogs......

I think I would take out the last three seats and make the rest a storage area for long trips. It would be nice to have a cooler and gear in the back accessable while you drive. So often I end up tossing things in the topper and its a pain to get out.

Really like your rig and hope you gets years of usage out of it.

Thad

PS buy a turbo......you will NEVER regret it!!!!

Oh yea Thad, Im sure a turbo would wake this beast up. If I have some cash burning a hole in my pockets later this year or next, I may have true dual exhaust put on with some turbo mufflers. Nothing loud, just a little rumble and let her breath a little more. Neighbors said they could squeeze 18mpgs outta her, got 60 miles on this tank now and just coming off the full line. Want to run half a tank then fill back up and push the numbers. Oh yea, she weighs 7000 lbs.
