Hey Sportsmobile forum. I was told I should also post my van here for more exposure. I currently have it listed on Expo: https://www.expeditionportal.com/for.../#post-2568616
Thanks For looking!
For Sale: 1994 Ford E350 UJOINT 4x4
117k Miles, 8" Lift, 37" Tires, 16" Top
Location: Winston-Salem, NC
I purchased this van from an Expedition Portal member back in the summer of 2016 with plans of building it out to travel the country. We drove it back from Colorado to NC without any issues. I have been slowly working on it and occasionally using it since. Life had other plans and unfortunately now it needs to find a new home. I recently decided to make a big life/career change and am moving out west and don't need something quite this big anymore. I have built out and been traveling with my Fzj80 instead and finally talked myself into letting this magnificent beast go. It's a hoot to drive around in and gets a fair amount of attention. My friends and I have dubbed it "Vanzilla".
It's a perfect base for someone who wants a very solid (and slightly aggressive) 4x4 van, but wants to do an interior build-out themselves (or get a custom one done). Most of the painful work has been done (insulation, roof extension, subfloor, 4x4 conversion, lift, etc.) and its ready for whatever interior build-out you can dream up. Mechanically it is very sound (was driven from Colorado to NC without issue) and I have just done a basic tune-up. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the states as it sits. I have all the receipts from my build/work and from the previous owner including the 4x4 conversion/lift and trans rebuild.
Also, I have a 2001 7.3L powerstroke conversion available. I had considered converting it to a 7.3 at one point and managed to source an entire 7.3 Swap ( I pulled everything needed to swap from a donor van). If interested let me know and we can negotiate.
Finally, If you are on the west coast or aren't sure how to transport, I am open to possibly delivering it myself. This is not guaranteed, but let me know and we can discuss options.
