New to forum and in need of your opinions

Hello all I am new to forum, about to buy a 2003 Ford E350 7.3 with a Quigley 4x4 conversion from my employer, it has 170k but is in great shape. I know that this combo is very rare that being said what would one expect to pay for such a van, and what value would it have.

Re: New to forum and in need of your opinions

Do you have any pictures? What type of interior does it have? Has it been maintained in a fleet maintenance program? A 7.3 Quigley is a nice choice. As long as the body is in good shape I wouldn't let the 170K on the clock bother you.

Gnarvan

The van is a 1 owner, locally maintained van sorry no pics but runs and drives well. I have been waiting for this van to be for sale for some time, it has SUPER CHATEAU package I am planning to make this my first van camper, hoping to pay 10k. The inside of the van has some basic wear and tear but for a 170k it has held up well.

Thanks
JR

Re: New to forum and in need of your opinions

7.3/Quigley is not rare, 7.3/SMB4x4 is rare.

Not that you shouldn't buy it, just don't want you to think you're getting a rare bird!

Re: New to forum and in need of your opinions

What was the van used for? What kind of miles are the 170k? Highway miles? Towing a heavy trailer miles? City miles? Cargo van hauling paint? Passenger hauling miles?

I would think somewhere between 10-15k would be reasonable. But it really depends on how the van was treated. Was it worked hard and put away wet?
