That is a rad video. Yeah, I said rad.
Sort of van-like. And sort of a barn find. Last registered in 1994. Brought it home today! I've always wanted one.
I tell ya, having that trailer has been a blessing and a curse.
Very cool and rare too. Elbow grease a necessity but worth it I think.
+1 very cool.
You could build some cool modular rear add ons for it.
Bike hauler, camper unit, hot tub.
I straight piped mine, louder yes but waking/disturbing the neighbors, No.
My 2000 E350 PSD has 770,850 miles on it.
Sounds of the Diesel, love it.
MPGs last trip was 19mpg with 700-800lbs aboard.
NJ to SC without stopping for fuel, great!
Damn! That's a lot of miles!!!:eek1
Glad to hear the Fords hold up well.
Here is mine!
Anybody with a Ford E-Series want to take some measurements for me? What's the width between the rear doors when open? Crossing my fingers that it's atleast 56". How about between the wheel wells? I'm considering a van instead of an enclosed trailer to haul my moto and kart racing equip.
Found a spec page that says between wheelwells = 52.5, door opening width 53.9".
You could always tilt the cart a bit.
Just measured mine. 48" with doors at 90deg, and 54" with them at 180 deg.
To get the doors at 180 deg you have to flick out the latch, but then they also start to swing around and move on their own a lot. So loading anything wider that 48" will be a pain unless you are parked downhill or have bungees holding the doors open.
Thanks guys...looks like I've got some thinkin to do.
This guy just bought a new Chevy van with Duramax engine. Sent it out and had the whole thing turned into a Zombie Apocolypse Escape Unit. WiFi wired and all the shit for mobile office (he's a communications guy). He just got it back from the conversion place and stopped by the office yesterday for show n tell. Boy is it cool.
My bike hauler and Costco runner. E350 cargo van with Quigley 4wd.
Rebuilding the chassis:
Engine after rebuild with a performance cam & mild head work. Never mind the Flowtech header box in the background, they are crap.
Back together with a shift kit, longtube headers and mandrel 3" exhaust:

That is really cool, any pictures of the interior and with the roof up?
Davelength and McBike; I love your vans. Something about a 4WD van that always did it for me.
Nice... I have a Sportsmobile too. An 06.
