5.4l ford Eldorado body. Haven't got it home yet or even seen it other than this picture. It was an auction win. Engine is sick and tranny is weak. I bought it for the rear axle but maybe it would be a cool camper deal. I don't know yet. Opinions?

Spaznaut is starting off with a positive reputation.
Really depends on rust and how sick the drivetrain is. Parts for the conversion will be a pain to find and a little pricey. Would be a sweet camper thought.

Battery charger and jumped the starter and it started. Sounded good too. Now I don't know what to do cause I was just going to cut the rear axle out and then scrap it

with a little imagination and some creativity it could become a nice camper as it looks like it might have a generator on it. Not a lot of storage pods but it has potential if you have a need. gas or diesel? You can look on you tube for ideas as some are already there or there are build your own camper to get ideas from. My BIL has one from a casino its a small airport style metro looking shuttle. I told him we could convert it but all he wanted were the wheels, and engine and maybe trans. Still think it had potential but he let it go to pot and is now too old to mess with it. There was a link somewhere where a guy bought a school bus and turned it into a race car hauler so it could have many possibilities.

I just saw one a while back on Craigslist, it was awesome All self contained camper style, He freshened up the motor, and he replaced the front axle with a 4x4 setup, 4x4 trans and transfer, put a lift on it with some all terrains tires. This thing was ready for desert or mountain camping, just way too rich for my blood, he was asking $30k, but if you have the time and the money, it could have great potential, good luck.

It's gone



I bought it for 150 dollars, kept the rear axle and the wheel chair lift and battery. The frame was rusted through and leaf springs and front suspension all rusted. Scrapped it for $377.15. It was a joke unloading it. They flipped on my trailer, spilled all the fluids and broke all the glass. Trailer was covered in fiberglass and rust pieces. But it's done. I will be on the lookout for another one in better shape
