Highlights of This Van:

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $5,000 + fresh items!
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $5,000 + !)

* A bit more interior headroom and entry clearance than most other brands and models of this era

* full power operated conversion makes loading and unloading extra easy

Options and Equipment


* This began as the well-equipped LX model (plus options) with 3.8 liter engine. It includes power and convenience features such as: power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; upgraded interior and exterior trim features; front and rear ventilation; rear quarter glass vents; CD stereo; etc


This was converted when new by one of the industry giants, VMI (Vantage Mobility Industries). This company is more commonly known as RICON, which is second in the world for volume only to BRAUN regarding creating wheelchair vans from new vans. My favorite is RICON, as I prefer some of their design and engineering choices and their fit and finish is a bit better, in my observation. Here are the primary mobility features of this van:

* Deeply lowered floor: this begins in front of the rear seat and goes all the way to the dash. This creates super entry clearance and interior headroom and allows for a gentle ramp angle.

* Power operated ramp: has the bi-fold style that parks inside the sliding doorway when stowed. Can be operated with switches in several locations, or with a magnet near the rear taillight.

* Kneeling suspension: Allows the rear of the van to lower a couple of inches, which causes a gentler ramp angle, for easier loading and unloading of person in wheelchair.

* Removable front seat assemblies: this allows for parking a wheelchair in either front location, if desired.

* Anchor point locations: there are many locations throughout the rear, middle and front of the van for using anchor straps to secure a wheelchair in your desired location.

* Wireless remote: there is a remote that will operate the sliding door and ramp and kneeling suspension.

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 the same owner since new! This is very rare, as the average wheelchair van changes ownership on average each 3-4 years. This owner was a school teacher and took super care of this van, as evidenced by the amount of service and repairs you see listed below which have recently been done.


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:


Tires; injectors cleaned; cabin filter; power steering pump; lube/oil/filter; tie rod end; alignment; sway bar bushings; recharge AC; major service to slider door/ramp/kneeling system

alternator and related; all shocks and struts; major front brakes and related; major A/C care with new compressor and related; rear wheel cylinders; motor belts; power steering pump; intake manifold and related; major tune-up parts; coils; tie rod parts

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

* 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 Windstar wheelchair vans have a bit more interior space than the much more common Dodge Caravans and Chrysler Town & Country models

* This van has had only one owner since new

Summary of this Gem

This is a super example of the heart of the market for mainstream lowered floor mobility vans. This one has many excellent features, good miles and it has had an absolutely amazing level of care during its one-owner life. Very notably, it has had a giant amount of repairs, serviced and care when either in my possession or recently, by the original owner
