99 Ford 7.3 Penthouse

Long time lurker, first time poster. I have been scouring the local adds for an SMB for some time now. I found a 99 ford , 7.3 diesel, 99k, 2wd. Penthouse top, SMB sofa bed, the rest of the interior homebuilt (nicely). I know the diesel can run forever, body seems straight, $15k. Anything I should look for? I think I am close to buying (now i need to figure out what to do with the 06 15 passenger chevy i bought two months ago - and how to tell the wife)

Thanks for advice

Re: 99 Ford 7.3 Penthouse

I'd recommend getting the VIN, and posting on a site such as and ask for someone to run an Oasis report, which will list all factory repairs and warranty issues. There are quite a few Ford factory technicians on that site who generally are happy to run a report for you.


SMB-less as of 02/04/2012. Our savings account is richer, but our adventures are poorer.

Moved out of the classifieds since you're looking for advice not selling...

As far as the wife goes, can't help you with that.
it was good to be back
