I recently sold a bus and the buyer found it on facebook marketplace. Just FYI you might want to try there.

Very rare!

Not quite as rare is the Powerstroke 6.0 AKA VT365.

2005 E450 Diesel is likely a 6.0.

Running a VIN check indicates it is indeed a 6.0

Well they discontinued the 7.3 in 2003 but it does usually take more than a year to build a bus.. .So in the spirit of 0 being 1 for very high values of 0, it is possible that the chassis was built in late 2003 and it took until late 2004 to build the body.. possibly making it a 2005 model year bus on a 2003 model year chassis.

But yeah, more likely it's a 6.0.

ive not seen a 7.3 on a 2005 bus.. im not sure it was legal to do so. as the EGR rules had kicked in such that after a certain date in 04 all had to have EGR which the 7.3 does not.. all of the navistar T-444E's for model year 04 seem to have had their engines / chassis built in the latter part pf 2003 as 04 models..



in fact i just ordered a later model computer for my 444E and the absolute latest serial numbers i could find were early december of 03. as 04 model year..
