2008 Chevy Uplander with complete Eldorado/Braun lowered floor Mobility conversion
MILES MILES: 140,000 (mostly highway, see history description below)
Price: $14,900.
"Certified": as with each of our vans (even though it does not have low miles) this will be sold in our usual, highly cosmetically and functionally rejuvenated, "Certified" condition, which includes a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty.




General Description:
This began as a very well equipped LS model. It has a modern, strong 6 cylinder motor with 3.9 liters and auto with overdrive (nice original MPG rating of 18/25). Has a generous list of creature comforts and options, such as: power windows, locks, mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; gauge package; CD stereo system; front and rear ventilation system; alloy wheels; 4 wheel disc brakes; dark tinted glass; and more

Goodies
During rejuvenation this will have custom stripes and graphics added

Mobility and Adaptive Features
Was converted by a company that the industry leader Braun is closely associated with, named American/Eldorado. It was custom ordered with a special mobility package, which is designed for maximum usefulness and versatility, with virtually zero care or maintenance of its features needed. Here are its primary elements:

* Extra wide and strong, aluminum ramp. This has an ingenious and effective assist system that combined with the lightweight of the aluminum makes it very easy to manually raise and lower. Most young children literally could operate it, because it's that easy and light to use.

* Very deeply lowered floor, which begins below the front edge of rear seat and extends to below the dash area. This is an example of the deeper lowered floors that are found in relatively modern wheelchair vans such as this. Due to this fact, this van has at least a couple of inches (or several) more entry clearance and interior headroom than typical vans of various brands from a few years earlier.

* Quick release front passenger seat which can be removed or installed and rolled in or out in a minute or two. (drivers seat is pretty easily removed via a few nuts/bolts which secure it to the floor)

* Custom, pebbled-texture floor surface is awesome! This is a permanent, hi-tech coating that is tough, easy to clean, and very nice to maneuver a wheelchair on

* Many various anchor points throughout the interior to be used for anchor straps to secure wheelchair

* Includes 4 anchor straps

* Awesome versatility feature: has a "flip and fold" two-person seat along the driver's side middle wall. This stows vertically in order to occupy a very small amount of the interior floor space, but when desired, it folds down to become a seat for two belted passengers


History
Owned since new by an agency in northern California. Was used primarily on the highway for trips to and from a small town to the big city, via interstate-5

Price
$14,900

Preliminary Photos

These photos are of a van we sold in the past that was nearly identical to the van we are currently rejuvenating. The only notable difference is that our current van has a versatile "flip and fold" seat along the drivers-side wall in the middle of the van.


























Summary
Here's an opportunity to own a nicely modern van, with the benefits that go along with that, for an affordable price. And if reliability, low maintenance and simplicity are important to you...the special-ordered mobility package on this van accomplishes your goal. Even though this one does not have low miles, it will appear, function and feel as if it were a van with less miles, and a much higher price

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,

Rick

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!
