2003 Chevy Venture with very extensive Braun (world leader) lowered floor mobility conversion
MILES 57,000 (total, actual miles)
Price: $19,500

General Description
Began as a well-equipped, upgraded model with deluxe cloth interior and armrests, tinted windows, upgraded interior and exterior features, and much more. It has the famously reliable, strong and yet reasonably fuel efficient 3.4 liter V6 (medium size for a 6) with a full range of power and convenience features such as: power windows, tilt wheel and cruise control; power locks and mirrors; factory alloy wheels; auto with overdrive; rear ventilation; brand new CD stereo with accessory jack.

Mobility and Adaptive Features
When new, the industry leader, Braun, converted this. They are a 35-year-old company that buys several thousand new vans each year and converts them for wheelchair access, and then sells them through a special dealer network. Braun invests much into the design and execution of the conversions, which results in a van that looks great, feels great, and functions smoothly, easily and reliably. This van model named an Entervan was special ordered with a package that provides the absolutely important and valuable features that allow minivans to be excellent wheelchair vans. However, this special package results in absolute reliability and nearly zero need for maintenance or possible needed repairs of the mobility components. This is due to having a manually operated side door and see below for details about this awesome, simple ramp. Here is a list of the primary conversion features:

* Lightweight aluminum ramp with spring-assist: made with solid aluminum that is super strong and yet lightweight too. Very easy to put down to the ground and up to stow it. There is no motor to operate this and therefore, there are no electronics to break, and no service or maintaining needed. This ramp is long and wide, sufficient for even very large wheelchairs to safely and easily maneuvers on and has a 600 pound rating. This ramp also has what is called a "gate feature", which allows for the ramp to easily swing out of the way for entry/exit of able-bodied folks while ramp is stowed in doorway area.

* Very deeply lowered floor: (apx 15 inches) begins in front of original rear seat, and extends all the way to below the dash. This is smooth, level and firm, which is ideal for wheelchair maneuverability. This deep floor and great engineering creates nearly 56 inches of entry clearance at the lowest point and then there are several inches more headroom than that when inside the van.

* Special flooring surface: commercial-grade textured surface on a metal floor, creates great traction and durability, plus it sweeps or mops clean. This not carpet nor vinyl, it is a permanent texture on top of metal flooring.

* Both front seat assemblies are easily removable: takes only a couple of minutes, if you want or need to park a wheelchair in either front location. The floor under the seats is the same material as the main floor area.

* Slots to insert anchor straps in the floor: they are in many locations, in order to secure a wheelchair nearly anywhere in the forward or middle areas of the van.


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.

Very clean and sharp already...and we have much rejuvenation remaining to do

Very deeply lowered floor, creates excellent entry clearance and interior headroom

Aluminum ramp is sturdy, yet simple and easy to move up and down


This one is in a nice sweet spot for features, miles and price. This is a van that provides a great overall balance. The best fact is of course the very low miles.


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!
