Up for auction is this completely custom 2005 Ford E450 Chinook 4x4 Overland. Originally sold as an Econoline Super Duty van with an ambulance chassis package, this E450 was modified by the specialists at Quigley Motor Company with a new 4x4 drivetrain. In 2017 after being retired from ambulance service, the cab and chassis were purchased by the previous owner along with a 2004 Chinook 19’ Class B RV. The two vehicles then underwent hundreds of hours of customization over the course of nearly a year to be combined into the incredible overland-style RV we see today. This E450 features its original 6.0L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine, a fiberglass monocoque rear body section, a full solar roof with Tesla-style batteries, and a completely renovated interior with modern appliances, a queen-size fold-out bed, full kitchen, a private shower, and toilet. This one-of-a-kind E450 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of California.
Outside, this E450 features a silver finish with custom “Overland” graphics in black. Exterior additions include a Dometic 9500 manual awning, a custom-made steel rear bumper with spare tire swing-out, custom aluminum ladder for roof access, aluminum fuel can and off-road rack holder, and custom fabricated Raptor LED taillights. The front bumper, hood, fenders, and headlight assemblies were also sourced from a 2018 Ford model. Supplemental illumination is provided by Rigid Industries LED lighting in the front and rear. The custom-fitted Mopar aluminum wheels are mounted with 245/75/17 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar tires, and the truck is equipped with a dually rear axle.
Inside, you will find a custom upholstered RV cabin highlighting a full grey suede headliner, durable grey leatherette seating, and rugged rubber flooring providing for easy cleaning and excellent insulation. The seller notes that no expense was spared in outfitting the interior of this E450 for maximum comfort and convenience. Some of the notable features include a fully equipped kitchen with a full-sized refrigerator/freezer combo, dual-range electric stovetop, sink, microwave, and all-new smooth-coated and cleared cabinetry. Occupants are also provided with an enclosed bathroom with toilet and shower, laminated counters and tabletop, a fold-out queen bed, and a new Mach 8 Plus Cub A/C and heater unit. Entertainment features consist of a Pioneer head unit, a multi-speaker sound system, and an LG television screen. The RV cabin also retains its original freshwater tank and custom-made gray water tank for the sink and shower and features a new Suburban SW6DE water heater and Manchester propane tank. The seller notes that this E450 has no need for a generator thanks to its roof-mounted Starlight Solar Power Systems kit, although it can also connect to shore/land power when available.
