Wild 1989 Ford E-350 Centurion Van-Truck Up For Auction

Centurion is a company that has been associated with Ford for some time now, having previously completed all sorts of unique and interesting conversions of Blue Oval models. Those include things like four-door Ford Bronco models, elongated heavy-duty pickups, and even dually van/pickups based on the Ford E-Series, or Econoline as it was previously known. Now, another one of these somewhat strange latter models is up for grabs at Cars & Bids – a 1989 Ford E-350 Centurion van/truck combination that’s truly something special.

While pretty much every Centurion conversion could be considered rare, there certainly aren’t many 1989 Ford E-350 Centurion dually van/truck models out there in the world, making this one special enough in its own regard. However, with just a hair under 100k miles on the clock, this one is also in pretty solid shape, with little more than typical imperfections like chips and scratches, worn shocks and tires, as well as various other maintenance items that could stand to be fixed.

After starting life as a cutaway model, Centurion proceeded to convert this E-350 into a pickup truck complete with a a cabin that’s big enough to sleep in, making it a very cool long-distance hauler capable of towing heavier loads as well. It’s almost like a mini-semi of sorts, with plenty of juice coming from its 460 cubic-inch V8, which was rated to produce 230 horsepower and 395 pound-feet of torque.

That power flows to the rear wheels via a three-speed automatic transmission, a Dana 70 HD rear axle, and a Power-Lok limited-slip differential. If nothing else, the person that winds up winning this wholly unique rig will certainly stand out everywhere they go, and most likely won’t run into another one of these cool, quirky creations, either.
