'97 V10 E350

Clearly not an SMB conversion, but could be promising. No affiliation.

One note of caution, it appears to have CA plates, but the seller lists a South Dakota title.

I've been lurking here for a long time, I do remember this van for sale a couple of years ago, and inquired through ebay, and it turned out to be one of his vans.

I've been looking for the right van for so long I think I've seen them all, there are some telling items on that van, the take off wheels he likes to use and the roof rack, and the paint job, anyway I'm sure on this one, it is a Javier van, not saying it's bad, but he has a less than stellar reputation.

Was wondering that myself. Seems like a very low profile top.

Re: '97 V10 E350

It's one of Javier's earlier vans.

The owner is a member here, but I don't think he's been active for a while

I'm pretty sure he has a build thread over at Expo as well...

I remember him saying he fixed the issues.

Here's a thread he commented on regarding the van.

Re: '97 V10 E350

It looks like those optimas are the starting batteries with a voltage cut off, instead of being a house system.

I don't know, this could be the right rig for someone- understanding the history, knowing what you're buying. I mean it does have all the engines it comes with installed.
