I'm moving to Colorado for the winter without my sportsmobile, so if you're interested please act this week or you'll have to wait until next summer!

60% under asking price, even though the ad states it won't be available again until Summer. I wouldn't expect much of a (polite) response.

Re: Sportsmobile for Sale THIS WEEK ONLY!!!

its 60% under asking only because asking price is 50% above fair value

maybe you had typo on the mileage

Re: Sportsmobile for Sale THIS WEEK ONLY!!!

I wonder how much an E-250 2WD van that year with 150K miles (that doesn't have a conversion) would cost?

If you figure this conversion cost was maybe about +/- 45K alone (just a guess), depending on the conversions wear, adding the price on what an empty used van would set you back should give you an idea of what its worth. Overall, the shape of the conversion and body makes more of a difference than the engine.

Re: Sportsmobile for Sale THIS WEEK ONLY!!!

seriously who cares about the conversion when you have a gas engine w 140K+ miles on it

would you invest that much money in that van. i think you would have to have the owner give you the van.

there are many diesel 120K+ miles full featured 4x4 for $30K

anyway you cut it for a van with that high mileage nobody wants it unless you get it near the price i quoted. the owner is delusional.

Re: Sportsmobile for Sale THIS WEEK ONLY!!!

proving my point. someone on the board is selling 4x4 Van 140K miles...NO BIDS

Solid 2001 Quigley 7.3l DIY Sportsmobile 140k Asking $22k (see board)


LOL. now i dont know who is more insane the seller who thought he can sell a SMB 143K miles w no conversion in the mid 20K

OR...the man who thought it was economical to do a conversion on this van.

seriously i am a fan of SMBs but lets not go crazy

Re: Sportsmobile for Sale THIS WEEK ONLY!!!

Yahboo, I think you're fooling yourself and insulting the seller. You will never get a van this new or this nice for 8k. Keep looking. Good luck. 140k is nothing for a 5.4 gas, they will run a million miles. Also, they don't require the maintenance that a diesel would. I love diesels, and 4x4s, but this is neither, and it's not a bad deal as it stands. OP might take a little less, he doesn't say for sure, but your offer of 8k is an insult.
