nice rig, i wonder if it's the 6.0 or 7.3? probably priced about right. the EB seemed to fetch a little higher price. and this has low mileage of its age.

Interesting that the interior is what appears to be a copy of a EB50 layout. I don't think it was made by Sportsmobile. I might be wrong. Wonder if they changed to better wood at some point?

ah good to know. my '04 had the 6.0 replaced in 2009. i don't know the history or why it happened but it only has about 85k on the new engine. i bought it last fall and hoping to have it a long time.

If the rebuild did not include anything related to bullet proofing (updating the critical components known to fail) I would start researching and saving for that work to be done by a reputable shop. The 6.0 bullet proofed can be a strong motor but its not cheap to have the bullet proofing done right by a reputable shop.

I personally would not touch a 6.0 unless I knew all owners and who they had do their work. There are a lot of half bullet proof jobs that dont do all the necessary work or that use sub-standard parts etc. Most sellers of 6.0 want too much for me to have room in my budget to justify the cost on the bullet proofing so I stuck with older platforms with the 7.3 where I can put my money into performance increases not motor stability.
