1998 E350 4x4 ambulance conversion. Phoenix AZ

OK here is what you wanted to do a quick check on.

Price is $18,750.00. Contact me via PM on this site.

Teaser photo.



The vehicle-

130,000 miles approximately (will update when I get home)
Quigley factory 4x4 conversion.
7.3 Powerstroke Diesel
4R100 HD Ford heavy duty rebuilt transmission.
Dana 60 front axle.
Dana 70 rear axle
BD 4407 Transfer case.
SRW (Single Rear Wheel) conversion to 19.5 " wheels with commercial duty tires.
Twin alternators.
3 batteries
Total AC system check and repair. (new compressor, filter/dryer, orifice valve, flush and recharge)
New manifold to turbo up pipes with exhaust wrap.
New front hubs, bearings, rotors and pads. (danatrac hubs)
Replaced the under valve cover wiring harnesses with the updated ford parts.

Body

This is the extended ambulance (21 inches longer wheel base than a normal ford EB van)
Total respray (some AZ pin striping)
Area lighting still works as does some of the red flashers.

GVRW 14050
Rear 9450
Front 4600

Interior

New custom built sleeper sofa (folds out to somewhere between full size and queen approx 4 feet wide)
Replaced drivers and passengers seats with new leather ones.
Microwave
A few cabinets reworked to fit plastic bins for storing clothes etc.
The rest is standard as it worked well for our purposes.
Currently it is configured with a Honda console/ jump seat in the cab. This will be removed before the vehicle is sold (clips in/out). It can be provided with the vehicle but it does not have any seat belts.

Known issues:

Leak from the rear of the transfer case, (probably when I replaced the speedo drive gear but not sure).
Not sure if the cassette player works
Lighting control panel is not attached.
A little over geared with the 35" tires and 4.10 axles. Changes to top gear at between 65 - 70 (and will continue to go up from there).
Cruise control does not work.
It is a 1998 vehicle so expect some wear and tear, nothing notable but I am sure you could find it.


Does not come with the winch and bumper shown in the photos. It will have a modified stock ford bumper. Photos to follow this weekend.


OK its the Brown one







Wrapped exhaust to keep momma's leg cooler. Also checkout how clean that bell housing on the 4R100 HD transmission is.



And before everyone asks "Why are you selling it??"
Our plan is to use our vehicle for an extended multi part trip through Central America, South America and Africa. This was to be our vehicle dedicated to that task with a view to taking a couple of months per year and then leaving the vehicle to fly home, work and all that stuff. But we want to take our grand daughter with us and she is getting too big to fit in the middle seat. So we will be building up something with either a double cab or a larger single cab.

Sorry didn't get home until it was dark. But here are a couple of photos anyway (crappy iPhone in the dark being used by a blind old bugger type photos)

Sofa in seating position.



Sofa in sleeping position. It is 52" wide and 73" long with total available length of 80".



This is a bench we use as either a kiddo bed or just to sit on when everyone gathers inside. It is about 18" wide by 52" long. Folds down out of the way when not needed. Highly technical 2 pieces of 3/4 pipe for legs that screw into a base plate.





Straight in the side door.



Really fuzzy shot from the back.

Hi Jage

It is a bit of a fat pig. Just under 12000 lbs. This is with full tank but just the base vehicle (and me speaking of fat pigs ). I got this to check and make sure I was not going to exceed its ratings. The only issue that I may have at the moment is that the tires are rated at 5650 lbs (from memory) but the alloy wheels are only 5000lbs. With my rear axle capacity being 9400lbs I will never have an issue if I loaded it to the max. I have access to a set of steel Rickson wheels with 6000lb capacity but they weigh a ton themselves.

Nameplate details
GVRW 14050
Rear 9450
Front 4600
