FS 1983 Dodge 4x4 Sportsmobile

Greetings All! I have a beast 1983 Dodge B350 4x4 6" Lift on 35" tires with the Penthouse top from sportsmobile. It's got 56k on the odometer and the 318 magnum runs like nobody's business. It has a home fabricated wood stove that works like a charm and Ive burned hundreds of hours in it with no problems. It has dual swivel front seats and two benches and a table setup or down and it is a queen bed with memory foam. Also has a sink with a pump that has a 20 gal tank. It has a AC/DC control panel, has 2 brand new 6 volt deep cycle agm batteries. Built rear bumper and spare tire carrier. Cons are it's going to need new canvas as the old one has a couple small holes bu functions fully and Ive spent 6 months in it traveling. It could be patched and is liveable right now. The build is an older build that could use updating. The van has just had a complete brake system overhaul after a buddy put power steering fluid in the brakes and it destroyed them. So with less than 10.miles has new pads, rotors, calipers, master cylinder, wheel cylinders and hand bent steel brake lines. The power steering pump was also just replaced, trans flush and service, Pro Comp Shocks, oil change. The Dodge 318 had 4 different drive belts and I removed the AC compressor as it was R12 and didn't work anyway so it along with the EGR pump were deleted reducing drive belts from 4 to 2 increasing HP and Gas mileage. It has an Edelbrock intake and valve covers and a 4 barrel Holley Carburetor. The pics show the van with 33" tires a d it currently has 35" tires. Everything works as it should, I'm hating to sell her but I must as I'm moving and can't take it with me. I'm ready to get this thing sold and I'm fairly firm on the price as I just lowered it to $12k ***COME BUY THIS VAN!!! MUST SELL***

Are you sure that is not 156k miles? Since 1987 I’ve put 240k miles spread over two SMBs. And we don’t travel that much.

I'm interested, but need more information-

please post a picture of the plate in the door jamb showing the Sportsmobile build date and the 4wd driven conversion company.

The first Magnum engine, 5.2L, came out in 1992. When was the Magnum installed in this 1983?

Does the Magnum engine have the overdrive transmission behind it?

What transfer case is installed?

Thank you.
