General Description
Has the engine most Caravans have which is a 3.3 (small 6 cylinder) and has automatic with overdrive. Began as a special model called a "Sport". This includes appearance and functional features that make it more appealing than more common models, such as: rear deck spoiler; 16 inch alloy wheels; extra interior and exterior trim features; adjustable roof rack; fog lights; etc. Also has common power and convenience features, such as: power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control. Also has several desirable options such as: power drivers seat; overhead console with features such as....MPG, distance to empty, direction, temperature, etc; rear ventilation

Mobility and Adaptive Features
When new, this van had a complete mobility conversion by IMS (independent mobility systems) which is related to industry giant "Braun". The wonderful, extensive package of features includes these features:

* TURNING SEAT: this is a critically valuable feature for some folks who want or need to transfer in and out of their wheelchair in order to drive from the original seat. This allows the seat to turn apx 90 degrees, plus it has an extreme range of fore/aft travel, which aids when transferring. Such a seat system has a new, installed price of apx $5,000!

* Easily removable front passenger seat. Just flip a lever and remove or install.

* Has hand controls (can be removed at no extra cost)

* Many locations for inserting anchor straps in the floor, for securing wheelchair.

* Mobility conversion functions can be operated either with a switch on the outside panel of the body, or via switches in multiple locations inside.

* Wireless remote for slider door, ramp and suspension

* Power ramp out passenger side door. Ramp is plenty long and wide, allowing for nearly any wheelchair and even large people to go in and out

* Power sliding passenger side door. This operates along with the ramp and the "kneeling " suspension in unison.

* "Kneeling" suspension. This helpful feature causes the van to lower several inches in the rear, which notably reduces the degrees of angle of the ramp, and makes going in and out smoother, easier and safer. Note: a switch allows turning this feature off, if you don't want to use it, such as for loading direct on or off of a curb or sidewalk.

Preliminary Photos

Please consider these are "preliminary" photos and as such, they typically show the van in early stages of our transformation process. As a result you may see various flaws, which will be remedied prior to sale.

Awesome, rare color

Attractive "Sport" model has features such as: special wheels; unique paint; fog lights; rear spoiler

Sturdy, easy to use power aluminum ramp

gentle ramp angle due to deeply lowered floor and kneeling suspension

Rarely do wheelchair vans have leather seats as this one does

There will be no seat in front passenger area, as the floor tracks where a seat once had been, will be professionally made to disappear. What will remain is a smooth, solid space to park a wheelchair on, if desired. There will be a rubber flooring surface

Power turning seat has extreme travel up and down, fore and aft and turns, as shown

Summary
This van is in what I would call the sweet spot of affordable wheelchair vans. This meets a certain need in the world in which many folks need a wheelchair van that is affordable and nice with good or great miles; nice level of van features; high level of mobility features; price that doesn't break the bank.

Status

Rejuvenation has begun: I have recently acquired this van and the extensive rejuvenation process has begun, which is carried-out by various professional shops and specialists. If you are interested in securing this van for your future purchase (many of my vans are spoken for in this way prior to completion of rejuvenation) please feel free to call or mail me with any questions

 

NOTE: I am always searching for more vans which are a nice addition to the mix of vans we have to offer. I will post initial information here about each van as I purchase, transform, and then make them available for sale. From the time I purchase a van until my transformation process is completed, averages approximately 4-6 weeks.

Please visit this page periodically.

Thank you,

Dear Rick... I want to take this time to let you know how excited I am about the 95 Ford camping van that I bought from you. I just love it!! I truly appreciated your kindness, patience and understanding throughout the whole process. I also appreciate the quality of the van. You were nothing like those typical car salesman. You were friendly, cheerful and not pushy....and still gave me a great deal!!! I will certainly send folks your way.

Thanks again!
