Anyone notice lack of 7.3 SMB's for sale recently

I've been actively searching daily for the past 4 years or so. Seems like they are becoming harder and harder to find. I guess it makes sense since they haven't been produced for over 10 years... Also seems like SMB's in general are harder to find this time a year.

I've noticed this too. There's hardly any SMB's on the market right now (at least that I can find) and pretty much none of them are 7.3's. Not that I'm in the market to buy, I just like to look.

Maybe because none of us want to get rid of them?? We're just getting warmed up w/ 80k on the clock... That said, got a feeling most SMB owners who might sell are holding off til Spring to get top dollar when it's prime season

I just rolled over 80k on the way home from Anza Borrego... And it's not for sale (I was going to say "at any price" - but that'd be a lie).

Yea, they're hard to find in any configuration. I think they'll continue to climb in price too.

SInce the Econoline is no longer avail….I (prediction) think our rigs will be harder and harder to find period. You can't upgrade to a newer model year, and the only other options for vans these days are NOT an Econoline (no offense GM and Sprinter folks, just me thinks the Ford is a much better platform for the true off-road SMB)…re-sale prices should be higher as well….supply and demand and our supply for Fords just went dry….as for the Diesel, well that is the Holy Grail of SMB's and as a few owners have stated…they aren't getting rid of those for nuthin!!! Unless you see one in the estate sale section of the local paper!
