Need some info: 91 Ford E350 1 ton shuttle, 7.5L, 4x4

Iím on the hunt for a 14-18 passenger shuttle bus for a weekender conversion. Likely, an E350/450, the 7.3L diesel seems best but the v10 gassers are much more common. I'll be logging quite a few highway miles and Iíll need enough power to comfortably and reliably get over mountain passes.

I've come across a local '91 Ford E350 that has caught my eye. Itís a much older vehicle and engine that I was originally looking for. However, maintenance and condition appears top notch. I'll be looking at in the next few days. I'm not very mechanical; any insight would be much appreciated.

Here's what I know:
1991 Ford E350 Cutaway 1 ton, 7.5L (460) engine, 4x4, 135,000 miles.

Recent engine rebuild. New brakes, pads, calipers, steering suspension, and two new batteries. Front and rear heat and A/C.

My main concerns are the HUGE 7.5L gasser, four wheel drive, and the horrific gas mileage. What type of fuel economy are we talking, 4-6 MPGs? Reliability?

The seller is asking $4750Öwhich is more than I will pay for a Ď91. I don't know how much dealing room there is. What would you pay?
