Hi congrats!
I had an 88 150 with 302 motor. Got 235,000 miles before the body fatally rusted out. Replaced tranny at 100K miles. Still I was able to drive it to the scrap yard at 235K. lots of road trips and steady 14mpg’s @ 55mph. Loaded or empty. If you can.find them used the flex steel capt chairs make for super comfy cruising.

Greetings!

The older vans are gold if rust hasn’t killed them. Get your frame, suspension, and steering throughly checked out by professionals before putting any money into a conversion.

Cheers!
