Highlights of This Van:

$5,000 of new and very recent mechanical service: details below
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $5,000)

* Heavy duty lift (800 pound capacity) with long and wide platform to accommodate very large wheelchairs and the people in them

* Super entry clearance due to the tall doors and AMAZING interior headroom due to the quite tall roof

Options and Equipment


This is a one ton (E350) with long body. Has the very desirable 5.4 liter motor (plenty of power but not a gas guzzler) and auto with overdrive. Includes super-duty rear ventilation system. Has tilt wheel and cruise control and am/fm stereo.


I decided when I acquired this van, that I would make a major investment into making it fancier and more attractive than it had been in its previous life. To that end, it received the following BRAND NEW cosmetically transformative package: Dark tinted windows; custom stripes/graphics; fancy wheel covers; chrome bumpers; chrome grill; new steps; bright headlights


* Super heavy duty (800 pounds capacity) lift with long and wide platform. It's a Ricon brand, which is second only to Braun for the numbers of lifts in service. It is an ADA qualified lift, with safety arms and safety belt.

* Special floor project: this 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 consider this feature to be an improvement that most wheelchair vans ought to have, old or new. You see, if you pay close attention to how floors typically are designed 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 could 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. This van has had the project done to improve this situation. This greatly improves the original floor by having removed the existing carpet and pad and then a sheet of wood was installed directly over the lumpy, bumpy, contoured metal floor. And so it became a smooth, solid, level floor. And then commercial rubber flooring was used to cover the wood. This material is very tough and easy to clean. This van has this flooring package, which notably improves the interior function of the van for everyone.

* Several anchor strip units that allow a wheelchair to be anchored in a variety of locations in the general middle portion of the van. (easy to add extra anchor strap mounts in more locations, if desired)

* Has entry steps on both sides.

* Front passenger seat has been removed, which creates a super pathway for able-bodied folks to go in and out when the HD lift is stowed. There is rubber material and solid, level floor in this front passenger entry area.

* Includes several anchor straps

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:
* Very easy use history. With the exception of about a 1,000 miles, this was owned by a mental health housing facility and was used to transport the wheelchair bound tenants and their caregivers to and from appointments away from the facility. It is obvious that it has had a very easy and well cared-for life.


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 recent items:


tune up including plugs; front brakes; rear brakes; trans service with filter; front wheel bearings; various belts and pulleys; wiper blades; fuel filter; fuel pump; fuel hoses; flush radiator; air filter; heater and radiator hoses; front wheel seals; serpentine belt; thermostat; tires; lube/oil/filter; battery; flush brakes; ball joints; alignment; lift service; 4 tires

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.
* Ford full size vans varied little in style changes or major content from 1992-2007. Therefore, to the average person, this van is very similar in design and function to a much newer van.

Summary of this Gem
I get calls from families, groups, churches and small schools, who are seeking a van like this. I usually don't have anything like this to offer. This is because vans such as this usually are beaten from being worked too hard day in and day out, and/or they have far too many miles. This one came along and I realized it would be a nice fit for certain folks. This van is very nice, with super capability and will be of great service. It looks, feels and functions like a much newer van.

This is an attractive and amazing hauling machine
If you need capacity, regarding weight, interior space, or headroom, this is the van that would work great for your needs, as it is very exceptional
Includes many wheelchair anchor straps

Custom area where the front passenger seat would normally be. This creates an easy pathway for folks to go in and out when the lift is stowed (because it blocks side doorway) NOTICE: the roof being very tall all the way to the windshield area, greatly benefits the process of able-bodied folks going in and out of that front passenger door

Super space in middle section of van will accommodate one very large wheelchair and person in it, or two average wheelchairs and their occupants.

This is such a great way to go in and out of this van. The custom floor, plus that factory black step is great (there is an exterior step on the body also, which is same as drivers step, but it is was not yet installed when photos were taken)
