'96 SportsMobile w/ 7.3 Powerstroke TurboDiesel w/OBD II

This is a SportsMobile expedition beast with the coveted 7.3 Ford Powerstroke Direct Injection Turbo Diesel engine with OBD II. This is built on the Ford Econoline Club Wagon chassis. This clean, perfectly maintained motor is an amazing runner and gets exceptional fuel mileage. The TS Performance 6 Position Chip add great horsepower gain when needed.

The rig is loaded: SportsMobile PopUp Penthouse with Full Bunk, Goodyear All Terain radials, ARB Expedition Roof Rack, Expedition Roof Ladder, Self Contained 12v Electrical system with Trace Engineering 110v Inverter Charger System, Norcold Refrigerator, Microwave, Furnace, Propane system, Wedgewood Cooktop, Stainless Galley sink, Handheld Shower Wand, 110v Hot Water heater, Two Gaucho Settees fold out to Double size bunks. Up front swivel Captains chairs, RamMount iPad Stand at cockpit, Stereo System, AC, Side and Rear Door Access, Swing out Spare Tire, Class III Hitch, Tekonsha tow brake control, Fiama F45+ Roll Out Awning, +++

The exterior is in exceptional condition with a small bump here or there, but has a great shine and has been detailed. Notice the exceptional extra operable windows on both street and curb sides of the van....you will not see this on most SportsMobiles. Registration is good through 2015 and Clear California Title.

If you are so inclined, my mechanic can add a Ujoint Offroad 4x4 conversion at a reasonable negotiated price.

Sorry Forum Members that I have not loaded more photos. I will work on that tomorrow. It is listed on the San Diego Craigslist with a ton of photos and I can email them to you on request and there are older photos on my album and other posts I have made.

I just got this in September in a trade documented in other posts. I got slammed with unexpected taxes in October, have a son in college and am selling toys...perhaps you have seen that movie....



Asking $18,750.00

Call 858.752.3434

From your Gallery pics, it looks very clean. I say hold onto the hula girl though, she's a keeper.

GLWS.

Thank you. Yes, I will get you some photos of the windows. I struggled on pricing...I was thinking north of $20k but felt that where I ended up was very fair. This is an awesome SMB, and someone will be very happy for sure.

It was factory from SMB as far as I can tell and from what the original manuals indicate. The mileage is 211,000. My mechanic is a 7.3L specialist and has gone through this motor thoroughly and it has been well maintained by prior owner.

Who is your mechanic in SD? My buddy is looking for someone good and reliable (and possibly me too, soon).

(Maybe we should start a diesel mechanic thread as a resource item...)
