2000 E350 7.3 Quigley w/ Eurovan Top & Build - Whats it worth?

I'm thinking about selling my van because I don't use it much anymore. It is a 7.3 diesel quigley 4x4. It also has a pop top from a Eurovan. It is all built inside w/ house battery, inverter, lights, bed, galley, etc. I'm trying to get a rough idea what it's worth because I don't see anything like it for sale.


It has 207000 miles. I just took it on a 10 day trip about 400 miles but otherwise it hasn't been used much. Before the trip I put in new rear U-joints, rear slip yoke, tie rods, and front shocks.

you’re asking for opinions on retail without providing visuals. kinda hard to assist without the eye candy.

edit: spoke too soon. top looks good on there. need to add some interior pix and I’m sure you’ll get some advice

I'm actually working on the interior a little bit because I don't really like the way it looks. I'm changing things cosmetically and putting a wood ceiling in. I'd give the interior a "Fair to Avg." grade. A friend of mine suggested I just gut the interior instead of making it look a little nicer.


I cant figure out how to rotate that one picture.

Edit the Picture before posting it...cropping it ever so slightly usually works.

I’m no good at pricing, but hoping grampswrx sees this and provides some input. He seems to have a really good grasp of values.

Your buddy might be onto something if the interior isn’t all that nice. A blank slate might be more appealing then a layout that isn’t ideal.

Have you guys seen anything like it sell in the last six months? I saw one not long ago without a pop top and 2wd but lifted that was about $20k with similar mileage.



Before I looked around I figured it was around $10-15k but then I looked on ebay and whatnot and I see more like 25-30k. I thought maybe I'd make the interior look decent and try $30,000. Is that unreasonable? Had a friend sell an 80's toyota 4x4 van for $8500 recently

Can you sleep in the top? The trick with the V shaped tops is having a layout that utilizes the limited standing room.

Iíd say the van empty with that motor and 4x4 is probably worth $12-15k depending on what kind of shape itís all in. The top could add maybe $3k because itís not a full length pop top. And the interior could be a plus or minus.

Iíd leave the interior unless itís really ugly. Anyone who wants to take it out can, but lots of people donít want a naked van.

Well used, full smbs of this age sell for $35-40k. I would think $30k is too high. Remember that anyone buying this must have cash because they canít finance. Iíd start at $25k if you can dial in the interior and $22k if you canít. It all depends on how fast you want to sell though. Many of the homebrew vans sit for 6 months at a time before selling for strong money.

What's your van worth?

It's worth what the last man (you) paid for it as we know you paid some amount of money for it on that given day.

Today's another day therefore your van may be worth more or may be worth less than you paid for it. Of course what you paid for your van has NO bearing whatsoever as to the current value of your van and what its worth today.

You know your van. You know what is good, what is bad and what is ugly. Look at the condition of your van. YOU determine a price that MATCHES your van's condition and what part of the country in which you live. Remember your van is worth more in California than it is in Iowa! Sorry Iowa! Yes location can greatly affect the value of your van and the amount of buyer's willing to come look at it much less buy it when you live in the BOONIES!

Quit worrying about selling your van short (Leaving money on the table) and just git it sold. Quit worrying about what everybody else is selling on Ebay or anywhere else. Look at ALL the overpriced vans that sit on the market for months before the seller finally comes to the realization that they are overpriced. By that time ALL the potential buyer's have moved on to other vans and your van will be known as a van the must have lot's of problems since it has never sold whether that it true or not!

Remember that typically your first offer will be your Best Offer so don't get GREEDY and let that buyer walk. GIT YOUR VAN SOLD for an amount of money that you will accept!
