Hey everyone. Been reading as much as possible around these parts, but it came to the point where I needed to break the seal and get the introductions out of the way and introduce my new project that I'm picking up tomorrow!
Here are some pics. These are actually of an identical van that this person sold, so I'll update with my own pics once i get my hands on it. It's a 1998 Ford E-350 STD Econoline Cargo Van, 7.3 Diesel. 125k miles. 2 owners, looks like a 3 year lease and then it was purchased and entered into a fleet.
Like i said, buying it tomorrow hopefully. They won't sell it to anyone else, so it's mine if i want it, which i do! Any words of advice going into it? I've seen it in person, but didn't drive it. They hadn't even processed it or cleaned it yet. I showed up to look at the other one they had, but it was sold, so now i get this one.
Also, I have never driven a diesel before, but after researching for a while, it seems like the 7.3 should be able to handle anything that i throw at it. All comments and tips very welcomed and encouraged.
Once I actually get it, I'll post a little bio and what I hope for the van both short and long term, don't want to jinx it too much!
ps. not sure if it's bad form to post a price, but I would love to know if I'm getting a good deal or not. maybe pm?
