My new project : "Vantera"

Hey guys newbie around here, doing a ton of reading on this forum and all over the place. Picked up a 2008 Ford E350 RB that has had a Body off "restomod" done to it. 2010 F350 axles for the 4x4 conversion and a torn down 6L overbuilt rebuild. Mechanically it was done very well, overbuilt truly, and drives great! I believe the guy was actually also on here.

I've decided to call her "Vantera", will move it forwards from here and do exterior and interior mods. Looking to do a removable, light camping build on interior and already have a set of Sienna seats to install to replace the benches for the kids. Fronts will get a replacement as well. Exterior will get the typical front and rear bumpers, looking at true rock sliders and skid plates. Lights, winch, roof rack - the typical built.

I have a friend that was looking at an exact identical van frame off. I think it was listed around $48k. It had reg seating trim but no build out, I'm wondering if this is it? I told him it'd be a good buy he had dropped it to $46k.

If it was up in Canada , could be the same Van. Was much less than that price though!

Great looking rig. I love a black (bedliner) band around the bottom of any van. Yours shines particularly in this regard.
