Hmm, this was posted on here while ago but the ad only had one photo. Maybe the finally got in to snap some photos of the interior.

Wow, that does seem like a pretty decent deal if it's legit.

Depends on the mileage. Could be a good buy. Doesn't look too scammy.

I say it's legit. It just doesn't have the look/feel of a scam to me, but of course it could be. Anyway, my vote is it's legit.
A phone number is listed, and a name, a good old fashioned name, Jack. Scams almost never have a phone number.

New scams out here will have a phone number. Usually one of those voice/text/message ones...


But I think it's legit.
Couple things though...
That top looks hammered!
I can't seem to find a year in the ad. Ford body styles like this began in 1992.
So if its that old, its not that great of a deal, maybe average.

I texted the number. They told me it's a 1996 with 155k, runs and drives well.

Looks like the pictures were taken in a tow yard. Never a good sign.

^ Could be that, or it was towed to a storage facility. Mine spent a month at a storage facility in TX before I had it shipped.

155k is no big deal.

I'm impressed with the interior, especially for 96. It's not hideous. It's not new and modern, but it's not bad. It's got day/night shades and the newer style Progressive Dynamics lights and looks to be well cared for. The top just looks like it's never been cleaned. Being a 96 it surely needs paint or attention but that wouldn't stop me. Also, 96 would be OBDII and it being an e250 it's probably got the 5.8 (351). I would jump all over this thing if I was in the market. It has no propane though. No water heater or furnace either.

Oh, for all those looking for an SMB with 4 forward facing seats I'm 99% sure this is one. The seats where the interior pic was taken are too far back to be the fronts. I think it's one of those floor plans with the offset second row (passenger side set back to help with side door access), and I'm betting that's bed extension cushion on the gaucho, so you probably spin that driver's side rear captain's chair sideways and make more legroom for the gaucho. I kind of like this floor plan but it gives you a small kitchen.

Looks like it's got the bigger fridge as well, but microwave above has been pulled or wasn't ordered.

Oh, looks like it's an EB70 so that gaucho is longer than I thought. Not bad!
