This rare 2006 Ford E-350 Econoline Chateau Super Duty Diesel is a high capacity tow vehicle that can drag your trailer, your gang, and a heap of supplies on your next road trip. Diesel fuel economy plus a 35-gallon tank gives incredible range. I bought it in 2012 from a NJ resident, and it spent the next 9 years in the Philly suburbs. It is barely broken-in with only 82,677 miles. This well-mannered beast is offered with most service records, a clean Carfax, and clean PA title.
Econoline interior space is legendary, and this Chateau is fitted with four captain’s chairs, a third-row bench seat, a rear AC/system, extra power outlets, and individual overhead lighting. With the bench removed, it has enough floor area for a twin-size mattress to lie flat. The factory delivered it with tinted windows. Ford lists the following specs:
  • 6.0 intercooled turbo diesel with 570 Ft-Lb of torque (when new)
  • 5R110W Transmission (5 Speed Hi/Torque), Auxiliary Trans Cooler
  • 3.55 limited slip differential, 4-wheel disk brakes
  • Heavy Duty Towing Package with extendable mirrors and trailer brake control
  • 10,000 pound maximum loaded trailer weight (Ford towing guide)
  • “Extra Heavy Duty” Alternator, 110v engine block heater
  • To match the van’s size, Ford installed front QUART holders, not cup holders.
E-350’s are built to simultaneously haul heavy loads in the back, and pull a trailer. I was surprised at how well it rode with a half pallet of Belgian block inside.

Overall, the truck looks great. It was repainted in the Fall to fix dings/scratches, remove the factory two-tone, and repair a shallow Darlington stripe from suburban traffic. As shown in the accompanying pictures, the driver-side repair is not concours but sound and hardly noticeable. Underside mechanicals have surface rust, but body panels are solid and show minimal corrosion. I installed the following:
  • Hellwig anti-sway bars and aftermarket 17” wheels with Michelin 265x70 LT tires.
  • The original 16” wheels now wear studded snow tires. Combining studs with a limited slip rear makes this a helluva Winter driver.
  • A Pioneer double-DIN receiver (AVH-X3500BHS) powers four 6x8 Infinity Kappa speakers with separate tweeters. The head unit has Bluetooth and a microphone.
  • A back-up camera is mounted in the bumper, directly above the hitch. This is a blessing in parking lots and when hooking trailers.
  • Glass Euro H4 headlights are a huge improvement over Ford’s original offerings, especially since they are wired directly to the main power supply using separate relays. LED reverse lights provide more backup light at night.
The van passed PA state inspection, but it will soon have two maintenance needs:
  • Shocks are original. Fresh ones would be a good idea.
  • Muffler is original. A new cat-back exhaust will be needed within the next year.
All sorts of shock and exhaust options are available, so I left the choice of replacements up to your personal taste.
