Ford : E-series Van 1978 Econoline 4wd Quadravan W/ 460 V8 For Sale
This listing is for a 1978 Ford E250 4X4 van with the Pathfinder Quadravan factory conversion. I bought it from the original owner last year with the intention of restoring or making it into a pulling truck. A year later it's still sitting untouched and I have too many other projects to complete. I have not tried to start or even turn over this van. The previous owner told me he had it running about ten years ago, but it has not been on the roadin many years. Based on the MA inspection stickers, it's been sitting over 25 years. The body and interior are very rough, but chassis and drivetrain are definately restorable. Make no mistake though, this truck needs a lot of work. It has the 460ci big block V8 connected to a C6 tranny with only 50172 original miles on the pair. It has the Dana 44 front axle with locking hubs. Drivetrain parts used for the conversions were the same ones used in the F250 pickups. The rear axle has an issue and will need parts. This would be a great truck to restore or a parts truck for a pickup conversion or restoration. Truck is being sold as is and will need to be picked up in Durham, CT 06422.
