94 fixed top 4x4, $22,000

http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/cto/2536048397.html

Cool older EB with fixed top. It is an El Dorado, not SMB. It has a diesel, but it has the older IDI motor, not powerstroke. People may see this as a good thing or bad.
(not mine, just found surfing)

This rig looks super sweet and it's no wonder he posted so many actions shots...

but...

not one shot of the inside? really?

yep, gotta kinda wonder about this one.

i believe i saw this same rig w/out the new paint job for a lot less last year.

seems strange to have no pics of interior, and they are selling it after less than one month of ownership?

hmmmm?

$22k for a salvage titled vehicle? looks pretty, but i think that is a little high.

Re: 94 fixed top 4x4, $22,000

just spoke w/owner who sez that it is a SMB, not an El Dorado, and that he has already committed to selling it to someone who is flying down from WA State to buy it.

sez he bought to just go on vacation for a few weeks. that sounds kinda strange to me.

said he couldn't take pics of interior, cuz all he has is a telephoto lens.

??????????

Isn't this the same van that came to the Bolsa Chica meet? I think that is my original back bumper on there I gave the previous owner at the meet. The original owners were great folks, members SteveAndLillian I believe.

Yep, good call. I believe you are correct.

I saw it for sale before the paint job.

Re: 94 fixed top 4x4, $22,000

saw the van.
drove the van.
diesel is strong... transmission shifts.
interior is purple velour interior with woodgrain cabinets. very romantic.

it needs steering arm bushing, tightening up and new front axle seals, and the fantastic fan cover is broken off. stove,hood, sink and exterior shower work, but not sure about the furnace.

salvage title is due to theft... but yes 22 is a bit high since eyebrows will always be raised on attempted resale.

i saw that old ad too and was bummed i didnt jump on it in time. seems he is trying to make $5k to pay for his vacation and the sportsmobile stickers he put on the side!

And Steve and Lillian told us it was NOT a Sportsmobile. They were concerned about not being accepted because of that. And they were a little surprised to be welcomed with open arms.
