Go ahead and make your dollar. But you posted up soliciting value advice here thinking this community didn't see it sold for $28k asking a few days ago, and your post edits are making it clear you bought it to flip rather than get use out of it as an enthusiast before moving it on.
You're going to get a different set of potential buyers and level of respect here IMO as a flipper vs. being seen as a van enthusiast or community member who purchased to use and then move on. My join date is a year ago (we're in 2023 FYI) but the years of watching and hunting in "the game" has been trying to land a decent deal before a reseller or flipper gets a hold of it who are just looking to make a fast buck in what was recently a very hot market. Times have changed. I suggest craigslist where it wasn't posted (very long and there is no active record) to maximize your value potential or waiting a while since everyone here thinks it's worth what you just paid days ago.
@86scotty my criteria for calling something rare in this case is as simple as looking at how many quigley or other 4x4 converted vans are listed on the market at any given time vs. regular vans. They're rare. The gem part is that this 7.3 is in fact stupid clean, with every single service record available from the original single owner. But, I totally agree with you that any E series is and continues to be overvalued. Probably why I'm a chevy guy.
