2000 Ford three quarter ton with substantial mobility conversion by VMI which is the leading full size mobility van convertor
MILES 92,000 (total, actual miles)
Price: $17,600

General Description
This van began as a three quarter ton (hard to find as a personal use wheelchair van) standard length (not long or short) with famously super 5.4 liter "Triton" motor, with automatic and overdrive. It has full power and convenience features such as: windows; locks; mirrors; tilt; cruise; heavy-duty rear ventilation; factory alloys; CD stereo; chrome bumpers; and more

As part of its conversion by an industry leader (VMI) this van received an extensive package (named "Liberty") of comfort, convenience and functional items, such as: strong, functional side steps and wheel flares; tow package (almost never used); large side windows with vents; fancy graphics and exterior trim; real wood interior trim; fancy, multiple-choice interior lighting; overhead console; rear bench that power folds to a bed; and more

Mobility and Adaptive Features
When comparing this van to the large numbers of vans that are built by independent shops, there is no question this van is superior, in many ways. When you closely consider this van, it shines in regards to function and cosmetics. As for its extensive mobility features, here is the list:

* Power opening side doors

* Has quality brand and style of hand controls

* Turning/transfer seat: under the drivers seat is mounted a very valuable device ($5,000) that allows the seat to have extreme travel up/down, fore/aft and most importantly, it turns apx. 90 degrees. This feature allows some folks who have a certain level of mobility, to move in and out of their wheelchair so that they can drive from the usual van seat

* Braun UVL (under vehicle lift), which is the absolute best of the best of wheelchair lifts. These lifts are in less than 10% of all vans, which is due primarily to the fact that they are so darn costly....apx $11,000 installed price ! This unique style of lift creates no door blockage, has a long/wide platform, is quiet, has capacity of 800 pounds (most lifts in personal use vans are 600). Notably, I get calls and mail from folks who say they will only buy a van with one of these lifts in it.

* Lowered floor, which goes all the way to below the dash, on both sides! Few vans have this design. It's amazing how much difference the entry clearance and interior headroom is increased by this feature. When looking at the depth of the ledge in front of the rear seat, it may not seem like its lowered very much, but it results in HUGE benefits to the user. For one thing, it allows enough space under the steering wheel if a person wants/needs to drive from their wheelchair. And of course, it makes the side entry overhead clearance and interior headroom sufficient for most people and their wheelchairs.

* Well designed quick-release front seat mechanisms. It only takes a minute to get either of them in or out, if desired or needed.

* Various anchor points in the floor, for utilizing anchor straps

* Includes 4 anchor straps for securing wheelchair.

* This likely will have wireless remote control to operate the power slider and lift. It does have controls by slider door and back doors.


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.

Notice that when the lift is stowed, it creates no blockage of any kind in the side entry area

Long, wide platform accommodates nearly any size of wheelchair and many scooters too

800 pound capacity exceeds most other lifts

Rear seat folds flat if desired

This vertical ledge indicates the lowered floor. These extra inches translate into much greater entry clearance and interior headroom, which creates a super mobility van which will nicely accommodate most users in wheelchairs and scooters

Power turning seat has a new cost of 4-5 thousand dollars and is a device that greatly benefits the usability of this van for many folks in wheelchairs and their families.

This van has all of the major mobility features that some folks need, in order to be fully independent from needing any assistance to load, drive an unload. And for families that don't need that level of features, they come in handy for able-bodied folks as well. This is a super van, which is nearly impossible to match in this price range


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.

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!
