1998 E350 transmission rebuild cost?

Was cruising CL and came across a 1998 E350 with a bad transmission. The guy is asking $1500. The van has 286,000 miles on the clock but V10 was rebut 71,000 miles ago. The van was a work vehicle so it is a clean slate on the inside. The price is right but have no clue what a transmission rebuild will cost.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Re: 1998 E350 transmission rebuild cost?

I have a personal friend who is probably the best transmission guy I've ever found---he'd charge close to $1800 for a drop off/pick up rebuild---I'd be doing the removal and installation.

I'm hearing a shop would charge near $3500 for a turn key rebuild, some sort of warranty typically included.

Depending who rebuilt the V10 and whether any transferable warranty applies makes this a $3-5K van---not that bad, if extended body with A/C and such it would be a fair deal.
