Autotrader Find: 2006 Ford E-450 Popcorn Food Truck

Ladies and gentlemen of Oversteer, the day has arrived: you can now use Autotrader to not only purchase a vehicle; a conveyance; a method of transportation; but also a business. A job. A lifestyle. If you buy the vehicle we’re featuring in today’s Autotrader Find, you can be… the popcorn person.

That’s because today’s Autotrader find is a 2006 Ford E-450 that’s not just any 2006 E-450: It’s a gourmet popcorn vehicle. And instead of the photos showing images of the front, and the rear, and maybe the undercarriage to prove there’s no rust, you instead see … popcorn supplies. I’m serious. Image number four is a giant popcorn popper, and image number seven is a sink. See the 2006 Ford E-450 models for sale near you

So what does it cost to be the popcorn king? Well, the ad doesn’t give the total cost of building the popcorn truck, but it does say the asking price is below what it cost to build — which means you could get into the popcorn game relatively cheaply. That asking price, by the way, is $37,500, as offered by a private seller in the Chicago suburb of Wheaton, Illinois.

As for the vehicle itself, well, it’s a Ford E-450 that appears to have once been used as a shuttle bus, since it has a shuttle-style opening door. It’s covered 113,000 miles, and, according to the ad, it offers the ability to make “caramel, cheese, and buttered popcorn,” along with “hundreds of different flavors.” Find a 2006 Ford E-450 for sale

  1. I don’t know, looks a bit cob-bled together to me. Visually, it doesn’t really pop; it’s too zzzea inducing. A-maize-ing they think they can get that much for it.
