MILES 74,000

General Description
Began as a white one-ton (tan inside), extended length, for 15 passengers. It has the very desirable, famously great 5.7 liter (HD version in this one ton) and H.D. automatic with overdrive. Includes power and convenience features such as: power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; power drivers seat; H.D. rear ventilation system with many rear vents and controls

Custom wheels; custom body side moldings; custom striping package

Mobility and Adaptive Features
* Braun lift with split-folding platform: made by the world's largest manufacturer and innovator of lifts, this is a super mechanism. It's rated at 600 pounds and has a platform large enough for most users and their wheelchairs. The tri-fold split platform allows for easy passage of able-bodied folks in and out when lift is stowed. This is a SUPER feature that is rarely found on long body vans designed for many passengers. Nearly all high-capacity vans such as this have a solid platform that fully blocks the door when stowed. This lift has controls on the lift and on a cord/cable. It would be pretty easy and not very costly to add operating switches in other locations if desired

* Floor anchor strips: included with this van are lengthy steel anchor strips that are installed in the locations that are most helpful and versatile for carrying one or two wheelchair-bound folks of varying dimensions.

* NEW FLOOR IS A SUPER ENHANCEMENT: a puzzle in the nearly 9 years I have specialized in rejuvenating and improving wheelchair vans, is that I wonder why more wheelchair van creators and owners don't have such a feature as is now being added to this van. Although most folks tend to think of a floor in a van as being flat and level from the factory, it is actually far from it, and that results in a terrible surface to move a wheelchair van on. You see, under the factory carpet in a common van, there is a thick carpet pad and under that is, to one degree or another, a lumpy, bumpy, uneven metal floor surface. And in the case of most vans that are turned into a wheelchair van, there are also remnants from seats being removed, such as holes, tracks, mounting plates, etc. All of what I describe here results in a surface that is not nice to maneuver a wheelchair on. And there are misc unpleasant elements to live with. The diameter of wheels on most wheelchairs help to overcome these facts, but the usual floors are far from ideal. And so we solve that here. In the area that the chair/s will be moving, a specialist removes whatever materials are above the metal floor surface. And then they install quality plywood over the metal, to create a smooth, solid, level surface. (plus the floor becomes quieter) And then a nice material is put over the wood for cosmetic benefit. In this van, we used high-grade vinyl flooring material that is designed for being used in wheelchair vans. Once you have maneuvered your wheelchair on a floor like this, you would never want anything less.

* 4 anchor straps (mixture of 2 styles for versatility)

* Seating for a total of 9, plus generous space for 2 wheelchairs or smallish scooters, or a combination of both. (far rear seat holds 4, other rear seat holds 3, 2 front seats)


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.

SAMPLE PHOTO: this photo is of a Van from our past that had the same type of lift as the van being described on this page. Notice the ample space for able-bodied folks to go in and out when lift is stowed.

SAMPLE PHOTO: this shows a van from our past that began as a 15 passenger and the front 2 bench seats were removed and our custom floor project was installed. The van you are reading about on this page will have a very similar floor as shown in this photo. There is ample floor space for 2 wheelchairs. The floor in the van you read about here will be very similar to this.

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


I periodically get calls from large families and certain organizations that seek a wheelchair van such as this, and they simply cannot find anything similar at a good price. This is because most vans that can carry the number of able-bodied and wheelchair-bound folks such as this van is custom-designed for, are usually huge, ugly, unwieldy beasts and if they are in this price range they are rough, unattractive and have lots of miles. Some benefits of this van are the very nice miles and that it has a good level of comfort and convenience features, which most high capacity vans such as this don't often have. This is an uncommon van that a large family or certain organizations will be very happy to own.


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.

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!
