Help selling a 97' E350 XLT 15 passenger w/ 4x4 and lift

Hello Sportsmobile People! My non-profit outdoor youth organization is selling a 1997 E350 XLT V-10 Triton 4x4 15 passenger van. I am having a hard time pricing out its worth. I've been approached by some folks locally that are interested in converting it but I really have no idea where to start. The van has 110K miles on it and is in great shape. The 4x4 works great as well.

ANY BALLPARK INFO WOULD BE AWESOME!!! The $ we make from selling this van (which was sold to us by the local school district) will go towards a new 15 passenger van to get kids out biking, hiking and kayaking so the more I can get the better...

Much appreciated!

Where are you located? Location makes a difference on what these sell for. 4x4 vans on the west coast seem to command more than elsewhere, for example, due to demand/supply.

Do know who did the 4x4 conversion?

The 4x4 system will depreciate similar to the van itself, but some conversions are more desirable than others, and also cost more initially, so that can be a factor as well. Keep in mind that adding 4x4 alone costs $10-14,000 so don't price it too low. 4x4 V10s are a great platform!

Hello all!

I was told that having a few pics of the front suspension may help in identifying who may have done the 4x4 conversion so here we go....

Any help is much appreciated!

lukassol: Are there any stickers in the drivers door jamb? That's usually where the 4X4 converter info is.

Looks a lot like the SLC guys but could easily be wrong.

Leaf spring front end but not SMB or UJOR, probably Advanced in SLC? That's my best guess.

I would guess Advanced as well, or maybe a backyard conversion. Looks like a Dana 44 under that leaf spring.

OP says he got from a school district... so I doubt it's a backyard conversion.. but who knows?
