If you go to the parent thread, ‘Shiny Things’, & scroll to ‘Vans!’ & then click on the number of replies, you will get a list of all those that posted in this thread.
Should be this if it works: ‘Who Posted’ (it did work in the preview)

Find who you are looking for on the list & click on their number of posts & you will see all of the posts they made in the thread.

Plutonic made 35 post here about that van.

I see it ends in a different number than the one I posted before. Looks like you can’t link to it from here but if I paste that link in an email I’m composing it does work.
I thought I checked it in here after I posted it.
(WTF? That just now worked for me in the preview too.)
In any case I only posted it in case someone wanted to see what all he had done to the van as it progressed.

Both those links worked for me after I posted them.

Not mine, friend in the bay area showed me last night.

1957 Cadillac ambulance/camper

OK this probably fits more in the RV section, but its an interesting frankenstein.

only $1900...















http://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/cto/3678934602.html

-----
One of a kind, Cadillac ambulance with El Dorado frame mounted camper that was installed by the El Dorado factory. Of interest to someone restoring old Cadillacs, lots of good parts, or perhaps someone might care to bring it back to life? Currently listing at $1900 or best offer. Has been non-op since 1997 sitting on side of home. I purchased this rig in 1965 and have owned it ever since, pro mechanic for many years and this rig was like a hobby as well as living in it. Currently does not run but nothing terminal on what was a low milage short block some years ago. Have records of maintenance performed over the years and I know the history of all that has been done. I know there is value in this rig so if you are serious contact me with any questions you may have and I can provide detailed answers. Need to sell to vacate driveway for new RV to be purchased in near future so I am serious about selling, contact me if you are as well, all offers considered.

Can I play?

93 E-350 Diesel, interior getting a mild camperization.







Had plans to haul the KLR on the back but might be a bit much, may be time to downsize back to a 250.

Nice rig, I still have my 85 E350 4x4 ambulance, non-box version.
Need to camperize like you.

Carl, wow, can we have some details? For example where did that little stove range come from?


Got windows and a door into our new 04 E-350 turbo diesel box van. The van is proving to be killer, lots of room, I'm 6'5 and just barely fit in it but normal height people are fine. Full 10' long and 6'6" wide. Has the stock 138" ford wheel base. Handles like a van, really isn't too much larger driving wise, but has gobs more room inside. The huge windows have been killer, purchased used off the local classifieds and came from an RV.

I removed the separator between the cab and the box already. I also put in a nice stereo and better center console. It also boogies nicely. I have a 2" Maxx-Lift ready to be installed and some other goodies keeping it simple... Tires will be 235 85 R16 my new favorite tire size. All E rated, 31.8" tall but only 6" wide tread or so, good for fuel efficiency and handling in the snow. I'll likely be buying out the last of the Cooper Discovery ATRs which are a good meaty all terrain that are nice and cheap right now... More photos and details to come shortly...

How much room do you have in the back? I don't remember much from my time in the back of one.There is one on craigslist not to far from me for cheap
