If you are not aware of this very special type of lift, please check it out. There are several notable benefits to this lift, as detailed below.

 

Options and Equipment

THE VAN:  This began as a very well equipped 3/4 ton, standard length model with 5.7 liter (famous 350) "small-block" V8 and automatic with overdrive. It has power and convenience features such as: power windows, locks, mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control   

GOODIES:  When new, this van was converted by a premium company called "Discovery".  At the time and for many years, this was one of the most fancy, luxurious fancy van conversions available. The level of engineering, quality of materials and design is very high and is better than nearly all other brands. The conversion included a very long list of features, such as: leather seating; power drivers seat; rear seat folds to recline or go flat to a bed (with length extension); fancy interior and exterior trim and graphics;  contoured, moderate height roof; fancy Chevy brand wheels; running boards and wheel opening flares; large windows with screens and vents; extensive wood throughout;  extensive custom lighting of various types and locations; rear ventilation; large chrome bumpers; rear spare carrier; audio/video system; quick-release middle row captains chair/s; much more

* New:  CD stereo was added recently

* nifty original feature: in-floor cooler holds a few cans or bottles or?    

MOBILITY:  When this van was several years old (apx 10-15 years ago) it was converted for mobility access use.

* Braun UVL (under vehicle lift) is my very favorite piece of mobility equipment ever created. This lift, which is stowed underneath the van in a super-sturdy, weather-protected encasement, is an awesome device! Here are major benefits of this lift: due to no impedance of interior, space is allowed for many wheelchair to use the van, while there is enough space to leave the middle row captains chair installed, if desired; this lift has 800 pound capacity, whereas most personal use vans have 600 capacity lift; long/wide platform for wheelchair to park on; no rattles, such as there  usually is with traditional lifts that stow inside of a van. Less than 10% of all wheelchair vans have this type of lift, reason for which is usually because they are much more expensive than a traditional lift.

* has wireless remote control to operate lift, as well as a control box on a cord

* includes 4 new floor anchor points, ready to be installed wherever desired by new owner

* NEW: this now has what is one of my favorite improvements on wheelchair vans, which is very helpful to the person in the wheelchair and able-bodied folks as well.  I actually consider this feature to be an improvement that many wheelchair vans ought to have, old or new. You see, if you pay close attention to how floors typically are in personal use wheelchair vans, you will notice that they are usually not actually solid, smooth and level. Rather, they are somewhat lumpy, bumpy and not as easy to maneuver a wheelchair on as they can be. This is because the factory metal floor of a van is not actually smooth, it has ridges and contours...plus has a carpet pad which wheelchair wheels sink into a bit, creating resistance to maneuvering. Based on my specifications and design, this floor has been greatly improved compared to the original floor treatment. This was done by removing the existing carpet and pad and then installing a sheet of wood directly over the lumpy, bumpy, contoured metal floor. And it became a smooth, solid, level floor. And then a fantastic type of commercial flooring was used to cover the wood. This material is super tough, and easy to clean. And so, this van has this new flooring package, which notably improves the interior use of the van.

Please feel free to email or call me with any such questions. I will gladly assist with anything you wish to know. I have discovered that due to the unique way each person evaluates, measures and expresses their needs, I can be most helpful regarding this subject if we communicate directly.

 

History of Ownership

Excepting one year, this has had only two owners. For the past 5 years and half of its total miles, this van was owned by a local family here in Medford who I sold it to.  

Note: never any smokers in this van.

Certified

This vehicle is 'CERTIFIED': There are a combined 76 mechanical and cosmetic aspects  included in the Wheelchair Van Oasis "Certification" process.   A foundational step of the rejuvenation process is when each vehicle receives an extensive inspection by an objective, independent  third- party service and repair facility.  Suggested service, repairs and improvements are then performed by various professional specialists.   The  result is your assurance  that each of the 76 aspects  meets  or exceeds the condition level of good, or satisfactory

For details regarding list of 76 cosmetic and mechanical aspects, please click here.

Each van does of course have various elements which exceed the promised level of good, or
satisfactory, which the "Certified" program assures.  Some are brand new improvements performed during rejuvenation.  And others are obvious service or repairs performed recently, prior to my ownership.  As for those, I only list here those positives which are certain, based on my either having a receipt, and/or due to being obvious to the inspecting-mechanic.  I refer to these as  "NEW OR RECENTLY SERVICED ASPECTS".  

Here are the new and recent items:

New: lube service; power lock repair; parking brake repair; intake manifold gaskets; wipers; new heater core; alignment; lift service and repair; turn signal repair; oil cooler line; door handle repair 

Recent:  major, high quality transmission rebuild (apx $3,000!)

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $ 5,000

 (extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $5,000)

 

Carfax Report Summary

(Carfax is a widely used database which indicates the history of a vehicle including accidents, prior owners, etc.)

Nothing notably negative or unusual: no frame damage...no airbags deployed...no structural damage...no "red marks"...no "yellow marks"....no major accident.

 

You Might Like To Know...

* Each of my vans has a superb paint sealant as the final step of the extreme detail. If you were to have a professional apply a treatment the cost would be several hundred dollars.

* This has the classic 350 drive train which some folks, for many years, considered to be one of the best motor/trans combinations available in any vehicle.

* Chevy and GMC vans are virtually the same vehicle, built by General Motors 

Summary of this Gem

Especially when considering the significant cosmetic AND functional rejuvenation process this van has undergone, when it comes to overall value...It would be hard to beat this classic cruising/touring van with relatively modern mobility conversion. Consider that this UVL lift alone has a current installed price of more than $10,000.
