    Another Triton V10, this time in a E-350 cutaway van with box.

    Total paid: $4600 even
    128,000 miles.

    It's in Iowa. Going to pick it up next week.
    Some damage to the corner of the box.

    I can't stop... :deeplist:

    Bidness use...
    The ranger isn't cutting it any more for some of these pickups that I do. And, my F350 doesn't have a bed on it at the moment. I plan to get a blade this summer while prices are low and use it to plow next winter.

    Working on vans are a pita if you've never done it. Other than that looks like a good price for the uses you'll have for it

    Iowa you say? Where at? Feel free to stop by the shop and say hi! I'm from Dubuque, Iowa. Chances are you will be picking it up from either the quad cities area (bettendorf, davenport, moline, peoria) or from the des moines area.

    I am about 1:20 north east of there. Not too far at all. Probably a bit far to venture just to say Hi but enjoy the IA weather while you are here! 3+ inches of snow coming on friday across most the state ;(

    Yeah, Iowa City is about a 6 hour drive (one way) from Fort Wayne and I will be doing a one way car rental the day of pickup, so I'll be on a bit of a time crunch. Sucks about the snow... I was planning on doing this Monday. :deeplist:

    I hope you clean her up a bit. I'd feel sketchy when dealing with a business with that kind of truck with that condition (no offense).

    Dude was very up front about every little flaw and cosmetic defect. I'm not worried about it. The cap on the top of the box is a $90 part. I called supreme bodies and inquired.
