Options and Equipment

THE VAN: This one began as a standard length (not long or short) SLT model that has smallish 5.2 liter (318) V8 and automatic with overdrive. Began with power and convenience features such as: power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; power drivers seat; CD stereo; chrome bumpers, grill and fancy trim features inside and out and also factory chrome wheels.

Was converted with a very fancy cruising/touring package when it was new by a major, national custom convertor, named "Regency". This includes features such as: moderately tall, contoured roof; large fancy side windows; leather seats; power drivers turning seat; rear seat folds with power into a bed; extensive real wood interior trim, such as cabinet doors and overhead pieces; rear ventilation system; extensive storage areas; plus more.


* Braun power lift: This one has a very helpful feature, which is the split-folding platform. This allows for able-bodied folks to easily go in and out when the lift is stowed.

* Turning seat: This allows turning apx 100 degrees as well as moving a great amount fore/aft and up/down

* 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 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, one of the shops I work with greatly improved the original floor treatment by removing the existing carpet and pad and then installing a sheet of wood directly over the lumpy, bumpy, contoured metal floor. And so it became a smooth, solid, level floor. And then a fantastic type of commercial flooring was used to cover the wood. This material is tough and easy to clean. This van has this new flooring package, which notably improves the interior function of the van for everyone using the van, whether in a wheelchair or not.

* Anchor points for floor: this includes 4 floor anchor points that are ready to be installed by the new owner, in the locations of their choice.

* Freedom features: this has the equipment needed in order for some folks to be able to load, drive and unload themselves, with no assistance.

History of Ownership

Has had a total of 4 owners, all from dry California and Arizona. Most recent was a family I sold it to less than 10,000 miles ago. Sadly, this 92 year old man recently passed away who was being carried in it.


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: Headlights; coolant hoses; coolant drain and fill; major front brakes; service turning seat; wheelchair lift major serviced; lube/oil/filter; repair lift switches;

Recent:Transmission was rebuilt (not a used trans); All 4 Quality Tires; rear ventilation motor serviced; motor mount; windshield; belt tensioner; serpentine belt

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $4,500
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $4,500)

* 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.
* These Dodge vans are classics! As of apx. 10 years ago these classic styles ceased to exist.

Summary of this Gem

Here you have a super attractive van that has a desirable style of lift. This van is a nice balance of being very fancy, with nice miles and also having a very high level of mobility features, but at a price nicely below $20,000.
