01 E350 7.3

Greetings from norway! Just wanted to post picktures of my 2001 E350 7.3 powerstroke 218hp.

In Norway these days we all drive electric and hybrids, but in the years 1985-2002 american cars were pretty common here. We dont have work trucks like you, mostly panel vans. Therefore the E350 was sold in quite some numbers. It was cheap (before goverment tax bonanza on any car with more than 1.6 litre engine) an it was torqy like no other panel van (like volkswagen transporter and toyota hiace wich are the most spld vans here)

In 2010 i decided to get my own american car. Just for daily. And since trucks like f350 are just overprized here (today a 2001 f350 cost about 25.000 dollars used in Norway), i got this E350 for 8 grand. Low milage, privately owned all its life!

I developed a love for powerstroke sound and durability, and wanted a practical car to tow my race cars with equipment in the back. I was not dissapointed! No problems over 5 year. Only normal mainteance. By norwegian standards the milage is a joke, but overall costs have been low. All in all the best car ive owned, an since i sold it couple years ago, i miss it more and more. You just dont find them rustfree like this anymore! Most of them are either rusted away or the goverment have found a way to force the owners to get rid of it. 50% of to days sales i norway are nissan leafs. Glad i was able to experience the american v8 dream for some years!

Qheers! 🙂

Thanks for sharing, it’s always interesting to see what people drive overseas. I think the US economy would grind to a halt if diesel pickups were persecuted so badly. They are the backbone of many businesses here, even with the strict EPA regulations they are still selling in massive numbers

Yes it would be no usa without trucks...simple as that. It is actually talked about a rule that force workers to use bicyckle in the cities. Plumbers and carpenters must have tools on their back instead of in their vans. Because diesel vans are the one thing that kills the enviroment they say. You might laugh, but this is happening over here these days...

I have no idea how they’d expect tradesmen to get anything done. My dad is a contractor and hauls his tools in a 98 E350 extended 7.3 van. He has that thing LOADED with tools, and we pick up big heavy lumber and different materials almost every day. Every inch of the van is being used, we tow trailers with it often too. I hope they vote yes on the bicycle rule so they see how bad things get, they’ll reverse it real quick
