I'm not seeing anything unusual, here.

But, sho' 'nuff, the Transit's not going to be cheap or easy to repair, once battered in an accident.

Any idea what that "vent" behind the right rear wheel is? It's in the second image of post 1.

Me neither...looks like it got severely smashed, wadaya expect?

I think that last van says Police...probably got burned up in a riot.

'16 T150-148" MR-Caribou-3.5EB-3.73LS-Premium Pkg-Leather-Side and back glass-Alloys-Block heater-Short power heat + sig-Reverse sensors. Here comes the painter with the real nice van...
Ordered 10/26
Built 12/23...in transit two days later
ETA Jan 13-19
Laid before my feet on Jan 14
I'd put a TRUMP bumper sticker on it, but I'm quite certain it would be vandalized.
