I recently purchased an 86 Ford E150 2 wheel drive conversion van Its has a 302 paired with an AOD transmission with 76,000 miles. It is very clean and needs minor work, Piece of glass in one side, complete exhaust system, probably a brake job. It appears to have lived out most of its life in Florida so it is in very solid condition. I am surprised at how complete it is after 25 years. I would love to see what others have for older conversion vans.

I have a 4WD Z71 pickup all ready. I do not currently have any plans to convert this to 4WD, with the price of fuel these days & my planed use of this truck that expense doesn't make make sense for me. My goal is to set it up as a camper and beach base. I don't see very much wilderness camping in my future with this rig. Anything is possible though, after i get it all vitals done and do over the inside I may move onto other ideas. I am certainly way ahead of the game with my initial investment
I dropped it off at my buddies shop today to have him go through it. He will do the exhaust work and all the maintenance as well as brakes. He is a transmission guy 1st but has a nice little shop. From there it will get a new piece of glass in the side then it will be in my hands to work the interior.
Picked up this '79 Chevy with 65K miles a few months ago for about the same price. Drove it home 30 miles on the highway.
Has fridge, sink, 2 burner cooktop, running water, toilet, furnace, factory air but no roof air like that. Can I add that to a fiberglass top? Has a pinhole radiator leak, some small rust spots, needs a tail pipe, a/c compressor and some minor trim but is pretty solid and doesn't smell.
I don't know why not. You might want to run it through the mill for a while
before dumping the big bucks into it. Also research air conditioners here (use
Danhard as a search key word) to see if an AC will be what you really want
or need. Nevertheless, good find. Enjoy.
