FS: 1996 Ford E250 SMB 74K

A few years ago my parents stopped traveling (in their 80s now) and I "adopted" their beloved SMB. While I've taken the van on a few trips, it's just not getting the use that warrants me keeping the van.

I've put a description in this doc:

[short version: runs great, full off-the-grid camping, pop-top]

I'm guessing a fair price would be around $20-25k given the low miles and overall very good condition of the van. I'm not in a hurry to sell. I'm open to both offers AND ADVICE.

cheers,
grant

I certainly wouldn't price it any lower than that. Looks really clean and well kept. It's an older model, but I think something in the $25-30k range would get it sold.

Thanks Grampswrx!

Funny that you suggest that since 25-27k was my original gut feeling too. But the ones I've seen sell above 30k are 10 years newer and have 4x4 (this one only has "limited slip differential" (aka Positraction)). If I get more than one offer, I can think about that price range.

I'm also considering driving the van to SoCal (visit Vista Forge) in early June as "one last trip". So, I have time to see who might be interested.

It is clean and I'm aware of 3-4 minor issues (e.g. LED lights that I'm trying to fix now).

Hi cjhilken! I got your message and replied directly via email - thanks!

cheers,
grant

Yes - I'm pretty sure it is! Apologies for not including that in the linked document. Adding it now and will double check the original paperwork.

cheers,

Two parties are interested. One of them is coming to see the vehicle in the next two weeks. I promised I wouldn't sell the vehicle before they looked at it (they are driving several days to get here - so they are serious).

If you are in the area (Mountain View, CA) and want to see the vehicle, private message me and we can set up a time.

cheers,
grant
