congrats. better update your profile now. I originally thought I wanted an ambulance, but with a family of 4, it would have been tight. do you know the engine hours? all the ones I was looking at had extremely high hours (I think they idle the entire time they are in service, or nearly most of the time). Another reason for avoiding an ambulance for me was the height, but I see that some fix a fiberglass roof on top and raise it. there is a good forum out there for ambulance conversions. again, congrats on the find. let the fun begin

no idea on hours, but it was a back up unit, so i guess less use.
I'm not doing a conversion, I'm just driving it around town and stuff.
I like that this one has the long hood in front versus the van style chassis

thumbnail_IMG_1355.jpg This was a 1984 I had for my work truck years ago. Got it for 4900 with 164k on it. Sold it years later with 350k on it.

How old was it when you bought it? (year you bought it?)
What was the most expense you had with it? Any major mechanical problems ?

I'd say that you have a pretty good one there. Milage is low plus a nice 7.3L in it. You'll have lots and lots of storage space with this baby. As mentioned above, these are nice work trucks for tradesmen.

Are you going out to Utah to drive it back?

Ford 7.3 Diesel is solid engine and with under 100K miles is amazing. The 7.3 engine trucks sell for more newer 6.0 Ford diesel trucks. Nice grab!

I bought it around 93-94 from a volunteer department. They actually let me use their plates to drive it home.And they left everything on it except for the inverter. Other than the fact that you could literally watch the gas gauge go down if you got on it, really the only issues I ever had with it were the king pins. I did replace the transmission at about 225k. Actually had a friend who owned an exhaust shop do a really nice sounding set of pipes on it. As you can tell from the pic, I kept all the lights but converted them to amber. This was in upstate New York, all other color lights were for emergency vehicles. It definitely made customers remember me. You will absolutely love the amount of outside storage on yours. I do recommend that you either severely service the compartment locks and latches, or replace them because they do corrode up easily. I actually kept the latches on the secondary doors and then installed actual household deadbolts on the primary compartment doors. This was nice because my house key was the same as all the deadbolts on the truck. Do yourself a favor and keep the colors on it. You would be surprised at how it helps prevent accidents. Because of how I kept the whole look of being an ambulance, i was pretty much ignored by law enforcement. And kids absolutely loved the sirens.
