7.3 diesel??? Considered the best Ford diesel engine ever. Still in demand. Not nearly the power of new ones, but highly reliable if in good condition.

7.3 diesels have lots of after market parts. I can suggest an air intake, 4 inch exhaust and a tuner. Mine is a hot rod.

If you mean 7.3, you'd be hard pressed to find a better diesel. That and the 5.9 Cummins, in my book, are two of the best ever.

Yup, mistyped [emoticon] 7.3 RWD for city/rural towing in a small business - no heavy TT or 5'er ... just local 50-100 miles per trip few times a week. Hauling equipment. 134K miles on it ...

I have one with over 250K.
Planning to keep it forever.
Still looks and rides like new, Always kept in climate controlled garage.
Not as quiet and powerful as the new ones but does what I need.

Good engine, highly regarded.
Expect normal age related issues but the long blocks and major components are durable.
They’re underpowered by today’s standards, pretty anemic actually, but easily and cheaply modified for a nice bump in power without sacrificing reliability

The new small Diesels in the half tons put out more power but like others will hang on to mine. Have one in a Excursion another in a F-250.

The 7.3 is the only diesel that can stand up to the Cummins 5.9 24V in regards to sound/noise. I could wake everyone in a 600 site RV park in Arizona going for donuts Friday morning at 6AM, with my slightly bomb 2001.5 with Magnaflow SS 4" exhaust and muffler, stage one injectors, and a timing box.

Motor on, buy the 7.3. The last good Powerstroke.
