Should I Buy?

Any and all opinions welcome.
I've been on the search for a 2002/03 Ford e450 7.3L diesel for over a year. Shopping for converted or partially converted.

Found one for sale 200 miles from me
2002 Ford e-450 $27k converted (simple but looks good), 160k miles, no rust

thoughts?

why is it being sold?
Price seems a bit steep for partially converted...hard to say...
Can you take it to a mechanic for a thorough going over from a non-biased mechanic?
Do the best you can to leave emotions at home when you go to look at it, pick it apart...if it checks all the right boxes, I'd offer way less...like maybe half???

Good luck!

check out the buses for sale on this website...there's a 2005 E450 for sale, asking is $6000.00...
something like 136,000 miles on it.

I should have clarified its more than partially converted, and they are selling because they are having a baby, and won't be living in the bus anymore
