Due to my extensive rejuvenation and Certification process, this van looks, feels and functions similar to a van costing many thousands more

 

 

Options and Equipment

THE VAN:   This began as the most highly equipped model of Chrysler corporation van available.  I say this because of the various "cousin" vans, which are the Caravan, Voyager and Town & Country, this Town & Country is the premium model.  And of the various trim-levels this LX-i was the best available at the time.  Therefore...this is the best possible...the premium brand and top model of that brand.   As such, it has a long list of functional and luxurious features in addition to common power and convenience features, such as: dual sliding doors; leather interior; wood-grain accents; upgraded 3.8 motor with automatic and overdrive; dual ventilation with passenger and driver controls;  awesome CD sound system by Infinity; dual power seats with memory buttons on driver's side; front and rear heat and A/C; upgraded interior and exterior trim; 16" alloy wheels; ABS brakes; and much more...

GOODIES:  Custom striping package in addition to the factory hand-painted pinstripes

MOBILITY:  This was converted when new by one of the two premium makers of lowered floor minivan wheelchair vans, called "Ricon".  And this model is called an "Activan".  This company does extensive research and development and safety testing and as such, they produce a super van with best safety features, quality fit and finish, reliability, and best-in-class style. Here are the primary features of this wonderful mobility conversion:

* deeply lowered floor which extends from rear seat to dash area

* power sliding passenger side door

* "Kneeling" suspension causes the van (when desired) to lower an extra several inches, which aids in making the ramp angle very easy and shallow

*  Has a super, optional feature which is the wireless remote key-fob for operation of ramp, door and suspension

* has optional "in-floor" ramp. This is the preferred style of ramp and does not block doorway when stowed...rather, it disappears under the floor!

* Easily removable front seat assemblies (with wheels for easy moving) allow for parking a wheelchair in either front location...can be driven from wheelchair.

*  Has many locations in floor for installing adjustable wheelchair anchors for securing a wheelchair

*  Optional "female" pockets in middle area of van floor allow for installing either of the front seats in the middle of the van.  This is a unique and very rare feature that allows very handy, extra seating versatility.  Allows for a helper to sit along the side, next to person in wheelchair.

*  This van includes easy-to-use hand controls, which can be ignored and it drives same as if they weren't there  (or, they can easily be removed if you don't want/need them) 

Dimensions, capacity and specifications:

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

Has had 3 total owners, all which have been private owners...no harsh commercial use.  The folks I bought it from were selling it for their recently deceased father who had owned it for about 5 years. 

History of Care

Of course, because of the extensive rejuvenation and Certification, each of my vans is in top condition.  As for historical records, the family was not able to locate their deceased fathers records and so as often occurs, I don't have a printed record.

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:  Major front brake-job; Major rear brake-job; new motor mount; power door and power ramp and kneeling suspension freshly serviced; major transmission service; lube/oil/filter; cooling system service; new coolant hoses; new heavy-duty Interstate (best brand) battery; wiper blades  

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $2,000

Carfax Report Summary

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

Nothing derogatory. No accidents. No "red flags".

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.

* There are several "cousin vans" which are Chrysler Town & Country...Dodge Caravan...Plymouth Voyager. Of those, this Town & Country is the most fancy and highly equipped of the "cousins".

Summary of this Gem

This is a highly equipped and very luxuriously-featured lowered floor wheelchair van.  It was very "Top-notch" when it was new, and is not much different than the best of the new wheelchair vans available now.  Ranging from function to luxury, and appearance to easy operation of mobility features, this is a van that will be a pleasure to own.  And now that it has been rejuvenated to "Certified" level, it is a super value in this affordable price-range.
