SOLD: 2012 5100mi Ford E250 with SMB Penthouse SOLD

SOLD!

Good news is I got a job in Japan...bad news is I have to part with my SMB project partly completed.

Only 5100 miles on the base vehicle with a chunk of that driving up to Sportsmobile West to have a Penthouse top installed. My plan was to convert some myself, and have them eventually finish the interior. Leadtime to get that done has just outpaced my transfer timing to Osaka, so here I am selling a partially complete project. Other than the top, its a clean slate for someone to start from.

Not looking to make a profit on this transaction, just hopefully sell to a fellow enthusiast and get a little of my money back out. Asking $28,900 OBO, as-is in my storage garage in Redondo Beach, CA.

Here's the base:
- 2012 Ford E-250 RB SuperDuty Cargo Van with 5100 miles, white
- 4.6L V8 (I got better than 16 mpg over the 4000' Grapevine Pass from LA to Fresno)
- Remote locks
- Swing out side doors with windows
- Rear door windows
- Chrome front grille and bumper

Here's what I've added, and is included:
- SMB Penthouse top with bed, pre-wired for solar
- Removable bench seat from a pass van (for hauling passengers pending interior work)
- Jensen Nav/DVD/Stereo/rear camera/Bluetooth head unit with dual rear monitor out (coax installed) and aux/iPod input plus 2 remotes; rear camera installed in stock location http://www.jensenmobile.com/search/?sku=VM9424BT
- Swivel base for passenger side seat (in-box uninstalled)
- Front Curt hitch receiver installed new
- Rear Curt hitch receiver with wiring & bumper mounted socket installed new
- 2 padlocks and a hitch lock keyed to vehicle ignition key http://www.boltlock.com/shop/part-7018519 http://www.boltlock.com/shop/part-7019343
- "Econ-o-meter" installed (removable) on the dash to help with fuel economy http://www.autometer.com/ecometer/
- Rubber mat to protect cargo floor
- Metal & Wood interior side slats to protect sides from cargo




Running boards no longer on the vehicle and not included (sold)




Front hitch


Rear hitch - I have the rubber bumper over-riders that mount in the holes show, and will include. Rear camera shown was temporary and proper one now mounted in the stock location












Such a perfect vehicle for this...will miss it


Thanks for looking! Open to feedback or offers via PM.

John

Yes, it is a regular body.

I will add that above. Also, the top is pre-wired for solar.

Good luck with the sale, great starting platform! Does it mean you're also selling your Lotus ;D

And good for you getting a job in Japan, one of my favorite country!

Cheers
Mr. D

Congrats on getting the job in Japan.

I know you mentioned that the floorboards were sold already, but can you tell me what kind they were? I've been looking for those and only see them on u haul vans.

Any info on those floorboards would be greatly appreciated.

Best of luck with selling your van too, it looks like a great start.

Note that I made an error on the engine size, and have corrected that: its 4.6L V8. Plenty of power to pull my trailer and track car, and great mileage.

I'm not sure what kind they are but they're pretty common on commercial vans. There is a place in So Cal that wouldn't buy them from me because they are so common: http://www.famvansparts.com/ They had a lot of them and could probably give you more info. I ended up selling mine on Craigslist for $200.

The van sold today to a like minded enthusiast.

I wish everyone on SMB forum the best, and thank you all for a great experience as part of your group, albeit more brief than hoped for.

John
