I like it��

Also the gen is a 4cyl diesel from the pics, worth a fair bit if it is in good shape!
It's always something simple.
One test is worth a thousand guesses.
If some is good and more is better then too much is just enough

Someone could convert that to a RV or a great mechanics service truck. I wasn't a believer in Fords until I worked at UPS. We had several Econolines that delivered the boonies and about 250-400 miles a day on poor roads. They took a real beating and the chassis lasted at least 750,000 miles before they would junk them. I think Ford made a mistake to stop building the Econoline. 2002 was the last full year of the 7.3 diesel. Good engine and long lived if the coolant Ph was kept in check. Otherwise the cavitation around the cylinders in the water jackets would eat through a cylinder wall. When I left UPS, we had two International, 28ft box trucks with 550,000 miles on the original engines. Still ran well.
