Sneaky Suspicion: 1991 Ford E350 Surveillance Van – Sold?

Mar 2021 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Truckin Tuesday

April 19, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

The ubiquitous white Ford van.  If you ever see one of these strangely parked in your neighborhood for long periods, be concerned.  The people inside are either tailing you or (hopefully) one of your neighbors instead.  We don’t know how the seller of this 1991 Ford E350 Surveillance van acquired it, what they did with it, and we’re definitely not going to ask any questions.  If you’ve always wanted to channel your inner Jim Rockford and start your own “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap” private investigation company, a great way to start might be with this van currently originally listed in March 2021 on Craigslist in Matawan, New Jersey for $11,200. With the NADA Guides Online Valuation Tool confirming the retail value range of these vans falls under five thousand, the premium here is for all of the specialized equipment critical for any proper stakeout.  The extremely low 23K original miles confirms this van spent most of its time parked in strategic, clandestine locations.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“1991 Ford E350 surveillance van 5.8 L V8 23,000 miles.. this truck is mint, rust free and runs extremely strong. Surveillance features include pop-out ports for video recording, roof-mounted power actuator camcorder Mount for 360 viewings, seating for two, ice cooler AC for quiet air conditioning.
