2003 Ford E450SD 4X4 Econoline
condition: like new
cylinders: 10 cylinders
drive: 4wd
fuel: gas
odometer: 88711
paint color: white
size: full-size

I have limited space and too many projects.

I am looking to sell my rare and exotic E450SD 4x4. This was built for the Santa Clara County Library for use as an off road capable book mobile. It has been fleet maintained by the school district and has low miles (88k)

This is a very high end custom built ($150,000+) rig that can take you and your business / family / stuff etc ANYWHERE.

The rig is fully wired up for Satellite internet and networked, has dual rooftop coleman Mach a/c units, Onan generator, shore power hookups (220v), FULL 110v inversion and battery isolation system with integrated charging and generator bypass.

Both A/C units have thermostats, also feature built in heating functions- in addition there are front and rear mounted furnaces that run off of generated power.

The box is well insulated and this setup can keep you warm or cool in any weather.

There is a fold out loading / handicap ramp in the front.

Dual Retractable shade awnings

Air Parking Brake and Rear suspension system.

Gasoline Engine V10 6.8L
88k Miles
Clean California Title
No Leaks - Everything is in excellent working order.

Box Portion is 20' x 8' x 8'

NEVER SEEN SNOW!!!!!

PA System
Power Steering
ABS Brakes
FOUR WHEEL DRIVE
AIR SUSPENSION
19.5" Commercial 10 Lug Wheels (no dually required)
Highway Rib Commercial Rubber by Goodyear at 90% Tread
Passthrough Door
Power Windows and Folding Telescoping Mirrors

This would make the ultimate Bug Out SHTF Zombie Apocolypse doomsday prepper RIG!!!

It would also be great as a mobile office for job site or construction or convert to a no bullshit tiny home on wheels.

Also great for Plumbing or services contractor that needs to negotiate snow up at Lake Tahoe.

The dream can be yours, serious inquiries and CASH ONLY.

Thank you for your time.

Also good for a burner, burning man camper RV.

I am thinking 86Scotty needs this, and I can drive it cross country for him.

He can sell off two vehicles and get all he wants in this one platform! Just needs about 6 inches of lift and a trick interior build out.

Can you imagine if it was a 7.3???!!!

Guessing it was intended for primarily snowy roads, and maybe gravel roads at best, given the low ride height, horrible break-over angle, and horrible departure angle.

You would think they at least have some retention mechanism on the books shelves to keep the books from flying all over the place.

Somebody is going to be awfully disappointed when they get stuck a mud muddle is their new FRONT WHEEL DRIVE e450. That's a low floor conversion, normally used for paratransit buses but a bunch were built as bookmobiles and blood mobiles.

Just so we're clear that truck has no rear drive axle and is therefore not four wheel drive.

Wow, me thinks you guys are right! Look at the pics and you can see the step up from the rear to the cab, no 4x shifter (though that's no guarantee), etc. I think it is indeed front wheel drive. does the seller even know this?

Also, it has air brakes.

I also think this unusual beast would go like hot cakes to one of the Expo guys.

Whoa! That will be bad. Sort of a "V Drive" config then.
