Re: 1979 E250 4x4 pop top
Realistic price? That is a tough call. For the right person, I'd think that the asking price is nearly realistic, but I would think it ultimately would sell in the $9k range? While there are a lot of Ford 4x4 vans out there, sometimes it is hard to find an old body style that is clean and straight without much rust.
Keep in mind that this has the old C6 tranny in it. While robust and known for being nearly bulletproof (as well as easy to rebuild if needed), it lacks a lock up torque converter and overdrive gear which doesn't make for ideal cruising especially if the van has 4.10 gears or lower. If it has 3.55's, it might not be so bad.
