I didn't realize it was 2WD.. I assumed it was a 4x4.. I should just buy it and transfer all the good stuff to my 2002 Ford E350.. Which along with what I mention above.. Would now also include wheels and tires.. Maybe the suspension and shocks and lift kit.. Let me know what you want for it.. Seriously.. I have cash..
Below is what I posted on another forum about our van.. We bought it about 1 1/2 years ago (sorry not a sportsmobile)..
My wife and I purchased a new (to us) vehicle yesterday and we are both very excited and very happy with our purchase.. I'm so excited I just wanted to scream a little more about it.. So hope y'all don't mind if I share it here..
We have been driving a Ford E150 that we bought new in 1998.. 14 years later and 290,000 kms she is showing her age and the body is rusting out.. We have been very happy with the Ford E150 but at times we wish the`load height from the back was higher than about 4 feet to make it easier to load dirt bikes into the van and when needed stand up.. Because it is not easy to load dirt bikes inside, we very seldom do and mostly use a bumper carrier or tow a trailer..
The dream vehicle would be the Mercedes Sprinter where even the regular version has a load height of about 5 feet.. But I really didn't want to spent about $40,000 to purchase one and not sure about reliability (read some stories online)..
Ford does not make a high roof version.. But have seen some Ford Econolines which were custom modified for transporting those in wheelchairs with high roof and some had the rear doors modified higher.. Because of the custom modified roof and the wheelchair lift etc prices can be quite expensive or have very high mileage..
Well we came across this yesterday.. It was a 2002 but had only 73,000 km and has almost no rust.. Notice the high roof..
And the custom modified higher rear doors..
Inside there are two extra seats in the rear (compared to no seats in the rear in our cargo van).. Remove the two seats and we can now easily carry two dirt bikes inside.. Or leave the two seats installed and we can carry one dirt bike inside and when needed one on the bumper carrier.. Another possibility would be to carry up to three passengers and then tow a trailer with up to three more dirt bikes..
Will remove the rear lift.. And either store it or sell it (worth $1000 to $2000).. The van also came with a high tech alarm and remote starter.. Have been checking every so often on Craigslist and Ebay.. And thought we would have to spend $20,000 or more.. Found this one listed on Craigslist for $12,995.. Not sure if I should post it.. But we only paid $10,500 (plus tax) and came satisfied, e-tested and in mint condition..
