Rugged 2013 Ford E-350 Sportsmobile 4×4 Conversion Heads To Auction

Vans are all the rage these days as a large number of people are looking to get outdoors, live wherever they choose to park that particular night, and just simply enjoy #vanlife. There are plenty of converted vans out there for sale these days as a result, but few of them are likely as capable off-road as this rugged-looking 2013 Ford E-350 Sportsmobile 4×4 currently up for grabs at Bring a Trailer.

The Ingot Silver 2013 Ford E-350 Sportsmobile certainly looks the part, with big Bushwacker fender flares, aluminum bumpers, Hella off-road lighting, a rear-mounted cargo box and tire carrier, rock sliders, a brush guard, and American Racing ATX 17-inch wheels wrapped with meaty 35-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires.

But those bits and pieces aren’t just for show, as this Ford E-Series van has some serious equipment underneath as well. That list includes a Dynatrac ProRock 60 front axle with Warn manually locking hubs and an ARB air locker, Fox shocks all around, a limited-slip rear differential, and an Atlas II dual-range transfer case to help it traverse even the toughest terrain.

This beastly van is powered by a rather brawny engine as well – Ford’s 6.8L Triton V10, rated to produce 305 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, which flows to either the rear all four wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. With just 33k original miles, the van certainly has a lot of life left in it, too.

The interior, unlike the rest of the E-350, is not heavily modified and is essentially stock with just a rubber floor mat, auxiliary gauges, and a storage box added. There’s plenty of room for activities in the cargo area, however, including a full RV-type conversion, which is something we saw on a pricey 2013 E-350 4×4 that crossed the auction block not too long ago.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    With a little bit or maybe a lot of work on the interior it would make a very capable adventure van. You might notice that adventure vehicles are of big interest now days. Speed is less of a factor say for an old Porsche than the Safari model they recently showed. And I think the “take” on the Bronco Sport is due to that interest, not just rock crawling but getting to a fishing hole, out of the way camping place. Of course the is all fed by fear of the pending apocalypse due to CV19!
