Options and Equipment

This began as a 1/2 ton (E150) standard length van that has small V8 (4.6 Triton) with XLT level features plus options, such as;  power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt; cruise; alloys wheels; deluxe chrome bumpers; center console; Ford factory CD sound system and more. 

GOODIES: First, when new, this received what most would call an extensive "touring" or "cruising" conversion by a wonderful company called 'Starcraft'. This was one of the nations largest and oldest convertors when this van was built.  Conversion includes such extensive and desirable features as: large flush-mount side windows with modern vent windows at bottom; contoured running boards/side steps are strong, useful and attractive; adjustable roof rack; very attractive graphics/striping package; Rear seat is power operated and folds flat into a bed; extensive interior trim includes much real wood;  extensive interior lighting package; center console, which is easily removable to create much extra legroom; simulated wood dash face and door trim pieces; fancy seating with armrests; upgraded sound and entertainment system; storage bins; plush carpet; and much more.

MOBILITY: Also when new, this van was converted for mobility-access purposes by the worlds leading company providing mobility conversions of full size vans. (They convert minivans, but in my observation their most unique quality is converting new, full size vans). This is the only company I know of that spends significant sums of time and money on R & D and engineering of full size wheelchair vans. (Most full size wheelchair vans have been converted by independent, small shops doing "one-off" conversions).  Yes, this wheelchair van is of the absolute highest quality available.  Only 1%-2% of all full size wheelchair vans enjoy the distinction of having been converted by Rollx.

 A quote from the current Rollx website: "Rollx Vans is proud to be celebrating our 40th anniversary in 2014.  Rollx Vans holds an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau.  We have a better than 97 percent customer satisfaction rating. And 100 percent of our customers say they would return to us…and recommend Rollx Vans to others". 

The primary features of this Rollx wheelchair-access conversion are:

* Has the most deeply lowered floor possible in a full size van.  Lowered floor conversions vary in depth from 4-8 inches, depending on the company and cost.  This one is lowered the maximum of 8 inches (lowered depth of such vans is referred to based on the height of ledge in front of rear seat) as you see in the photos. 

* Many lowered floor wheelchair vans are not lowered in either front seat area and so there is a ledge directly behind the front seats as well as the one in front of the rear seat...thus, only the middle of the van is lowered.  And some are lowered only on one side or the other in the front. This van has the ideal feature, which is that the floor is lowered from the rear seat entirely to the dash area.  There are major benefits to this forward area feature:  when seat/s are removed there is about 6 inches extra headroom/clearance in front for a person in a wheelchair to either ride or drive; in vans without a modified floor in front, there is not enough space below the steering wheel for a person to sit in wheelchair and drive;  at the side entry, there is an extra apx 7-8 inches clearance, which is a huge benefit when loading/unloading.

* Both front seats have modular, quick-release bases.  With the simple pull of one lever, either of these seats can be removed in a couple of minutes.  This allows for parking a wheelchair in either front location, as desired.  Plus, the console is removable in less than a minute, which creates a lot of extra space/clearance when parking and maneuvering a wheelchair.

* Has a lift made by industry giant, Braun.  this one has obviously had easy, limited use in its life. This model of lift has several very nifty features: it is a style that has only one support tower, versus two, which means that when stowed there is nothing impeding the area directly behind the front passenger seat;  the platform is called a tri-fold and the folding mechanism is power operated (many other brands and styles fold manually), which when folded and stowed, allows for easy passage of folks in and out of the side doors; with platform stowed and folded, there is great visibility out the side doors, versus a sold platform that blocks the view and does not allow folks to go in and out when lift is stowed.

* Has full set of 4 of the highest quality anchor straps, and it also has a 3-point seatbelt system.

History of Ownership

With the exception of a couple thousand miles (for obvious reasons, some folks have a limited time or distance need for such vans) this van has been owned by only two owners.

History of Care

As is often the case, the details of this vans history are unknown to me.  However, as you see below, it is in absolutely top mechanical and cosmetic condition at this time.  Also, I believe it is notable that I drove this 700 miles to get it to Medford without having to do anything whatsoever to it.  None of the extensive work I had done to improve it was critical repairs, but rather, it was all general care, maintenance, etc.

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".  As for this vehicle:

New: 

As always, I went the extra mile on this to meet my commitment to a very high level, "Certified" condition.  Here is the valuable, extensive list of new items: one new power door lock system; wiper blades; new heavy-duty "Interstate" battery; accessory drive belts; oil change and lube; major new front brakes; major front suspension including all 4 ball joints; alignment; quality front shocks; quality rear shocks; notable service of lift and related components; new (not used) steering gearbox. 

Recent: rear brakes are at 80% and all 4 tires are at 85%

The combined retail value of the above-listed items is approximately $4,000!  (for mechanical items only, in addition was extensive cosmetic beautification)

You Might Like To Know...

* NOTE:  in several ways this is a more desirable, more functional van than a tall roof van, which is what many folks envision  when they imagine a wheelchair van: you may be surprised to know, this has about the same entry/exit clearance at the side entry as a tall roof van WITH tall doors, because the tall roof vans rarely have a lowered floor which creates much extra clearance;  looks like a normal van, not like you are in a wheelchair van;  unlike most tall roof vans, this can be taken in most drive-thru windows, parking garages, carports, etc;  has much less wind resistance which creates better MPG and also less wind buffeting, etc;  the tall roof vans almost always have a shelf/ceiling above the front driver and passenger area which causes them to have much less headroom/clearance than this in the foreword area.

* 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 vans are extremely similar for a wide range of years, from 1992 through 2007.  They did receive some updates in 1997 such as the more powerful AND more fuel efficient "Triton" motors and also they received a redesigned dash area which included a passenger side airbag.  Because of this vans rejuvenated condition, its hard to distinguish between it and one many years newer at a MUCH higher cost

* I encourage you to visit the Rollx website because they do have used vans.  You will discover that they likely have nothing comparably similar to this van, and if/when they do, their price for this van, with its desirable condition, miles and features would be at least $20k...and their vans are not "Certified".

Summary of this Gem

Lowered floor vans (being a Rollx, this is premium) are a great solution for the varied needs of many folks in wheelchair vans and their families.  And this one has the deepest and most extensively lowered floor, plus a super model of lift.  And its super attractive, stylish and highly-equipped due to the Starcraft conversion. An super-value wheelchair van at this price 

Notice the deeply lowered floor

This extends all the way to the dash, increasing headroom and clearance substantially not only in middle of van, but also at side entry and for front passengers who choose to remove front seat/s so they can park in wheelchair
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)

See the lowered floor, very deluxe interior, much real wood, rear seat folds with power to any angle or even to lay flat
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)

Side entry has 8 inches extra clearance due to lowered floor, which is similar entry clearance to a van with tall roof and doors

Generously-sized platform will accommodate most wheelchairs.

Platform folds with power operation into three parts, creating easy space for a person to go in and out when lift is stowed
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Both of these front seats are very easily removable to create space to park wheelchair in either front location...including allowing ability to drive from wheelchair

Has never towed anything...therefore, drive-train has had easy use for all of its life
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Plenty of cargo area behind the rear seat
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Includes the highest quality and easiest to use wheelchair anchor straps and seatbelt system.  These were recently new
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Rear seat folds to whatever angel you want, including flat and it moves forward and back. Also notice the 12 volt plug.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Looks much newer than a 2000, because the body style was the same for several years after this...and because it is in amazing condition in every way.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Side barn doors create wider entry space than a sliding door and are much easier to handle as they are small and light.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Paint is gleaming and the fancy graphics look great
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Notice the elevated drivers seat with footrest area.  That is what we call an "elevated base",  which accommodates for the lowered floor.  As a result, the ride height is the same as an unmodified van.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Very low miles...and several helpful gauges
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Fancy Ford stereo system with upgraded speakers and CD.  Also notice the switches for front and rear ventilation system. 
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
These are switches in the overhead console in the front of the van which control rear lighting and accessories.  There are fancy lights in several places, such as in the ceiling, hidden in the window boxes, and along the side walls.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Notice the passenger seat has the same type of raised base as the drivers seat.  Both seat assemblies are modular and easily removed in a matter of a couple of minutes.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Generously-sized platform is able to accommodate most wheelchairs. 
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
NOTICE:  something that is subtle, if you are not extremely familiar with looking at Ford vans, is that the floor is also deeply lowered at the side entry point, which creates about 7-8 inches more clearance when entering compared to an unmodified van.  Therefore, this has similar entry clearance to a van with tall roof and tall doors.  

 Lift has been gently used, as you can see by the original paint on it which is in pretty

 darn nice condition.

This is the forward overhead console....lots of real wood with a couple types of lights.
