Some good points. Even if it turns out to be a Mercedes-Benz, I still believe there are a lot of Dodge/Chrysler and Freightliner parts used to assemble this van.

Here we clearly have a 2500 model numbered van. The OP originally claimed it was a model 319 or somesuch - yet we see the signage on the van as; 2500. He recanted, however both model numbers cannot be correct......or can they? Perhaps this is actually a 319 model number, re-badged as a 2500?

I would take a stab at looking at the VIN number and it's associated stamped information affixed to a door jamb & the Carfax on the vehicle. And for good measure - a copy of the State of Texas Title to help clear this up. Perhaps the seller wouldn't mind posting attachments proving such?

My 1999 E300TD's MSO & State of Texas title state that it's model is: E300TD yet many clowns run around claiming that Mercedes-Benz doesn't know what they're printing on their own manufacturer's statement of origin - the MSO. Just because something is badged X, doesn't mean it's X. These people have serious problems with facts, and have thusly been marginalized by their own propoganda.
