Craigslist Find: Swanky Ford Excursion Limo
Extra-long Excursion will help you arrive to your next event in style — no matter where that is!
It seems like destination weddings are all the rage these days, and if you follow your significant other’s Pinterest account, “rustic” settings such as farms, vineyards, and cabins deep in the woods are the business. If you really want to get away from it all, this Ford Excursion limousine is a surefire way to ensure that your wedding party makes it to the ceremony on time, and in style.
Found on Craigslist in Los Angeles (it really seems like you can find just about anything there), this Excursion limo was professionally converted by Crystal Coach Works in 2005, and has covered just 72,000 miles since.
Even better, it’s spent that time in private service instead of with a livery company, so you (hopefully) won’t have to worry about cleaning up spilled booze, vomit, or (shudder) mystery fluids from the upholstery. The interior looks very well cared for, as you’d expect for a vehicle that only averaged 6,500 miles a year and was likely used only for special occasions.
The Excursion limo is powered by the stock Triton V-10 and automatic transmission, although it’s unclear if the truck is still 4WD after the conversion (we don’t see why it wouldn’t be). Either way you look at it, that’s one heck of a long driveshaft! In addition, the ad notes that the truck is over thirty feet long!
Aside from the limo conversion itself, the truck has a few interesting stylistic add-ons as well, including the brush guard, large chrome wheels, and vinyl roof. Apparently this Excursion limo was garage-kept, as the ad states that there are no rips, tears, or sun-fading present.
The seller is asking just under $20,000 for this beast. If you’re interested, you can find it here.
