2006 Ford Econoline350 DIESEL Short Bus- 8k

This is a 2006 Ford Econoline E350 Diesel short bus.
I purchased it in July of this year from a reputable bus dealership in NY - Don Brown Bus Sales. It was originally sold by the school district in 2019. I had the idea to convert it into a camper/Skoolie.
Maine registration and inspection from August (I was living there at the time).
I have since moved home to Maryland and plan to go back to school, so I'm looking to pass it onto someone with a dream for adventure.

Value is in the eye of the beholder......

Other than it being a cutaway, a 1 ton SRW and having the 6.0 diesel it looks decent to me.

I would suggest you to read up on "bulletproofing the Ford 6.0" first. If you are still interested then take an hour or so and endeavor to touch each of the injectors.

Personally, if someone gave me a similar bus I would probably sell it for scrap.

Just my $0.02

6.0 is a good engine... haters just dont like it and arent willing to learn..



is it some work to bulletproof it? yep it is.. if you arent mechanically or wallet-ly inclined buy a different bus.. but if you sre mechanically inclined a 6.0 can be a great engine.. and the transmission behind a 6.0 is miles better than the e4AOD or the 4R100 that was behind the 7.3....

I'm not a "hater". I will certainly point out that the 6.0 needs a couple thousand dollars in upgrades to make it a reliable motor.

I bought an E450 with a 6.0 & a bit over 120k miles. Ran and drove great. I paid $2500 for it. My intention was to address the problem areas on the 6.0 and then convert it.

My local mechanic quoted $2500 to install a kit from bulletproof diesel.

OP, Google "Ford 6.0" and do a little reading before you make a decision.
