1998 E350 in MD

Here's a "project" shuttle bus in MD but the price is right if you're real mechanically inclined.

Ford F-350 mini bus

judging from the door shape it looks more like a 1988 instead of a 1998

Maybe if it had a diesel. I wouldn't give him $5 without a title.

That's what I was thinking. You can't even take it for scrap without a title.

you have to file for a mechanics lien title... I did it with an old car i got for free... it took 30-60 days and I had a Good non-R title..

the state tries to contact its original owner and contacts over a period of time.. if no response then the vehicle is cosidered abandoned and you get a title written for it.. if the owner surfaces you lose the vehicle and they can do what they want..

if its truly a mechanic filing for the title they likely have a bill that requires payment and many times the owner refuses to pay it and the mechanic gets the title..

It's got a lot of things against it, not to mention the title and the attitude of the owners. They seem to want their mess cleaned up, and you should pay them for it too. Somebody chucked something big through that windshield. You can pretty well guess what the inside looks like judging by the outside condition. The fact that they didn't take any pics of the inside says it's pretty bad.
Still, for the money and if a person had enough elbow grease. If you didn't mind dealing with the numerous bad electrical connections from weather damage. There's a reason why these people didn't use this bus as intended.

Its got a 460. That means between 1/2 and all exhaust studs are broken. Nope. Free is $2k too much.

So somebody should make them pay to have it hauled away. I guess that requires a title too. Never mind.

They should plant flowers in it and get used to seeing it there.
