Highlights of This Van:

* The power tri-fold platform zips out of the way with the push of a button, creating generous space for able-bodied folks to go in and out

Options and Equipment

THE VAN:

This super van began as a 3/4 ton, standard length passenger van. Comes with the famously great 5.4 liter "Triton" motor. (great power and respectable MPG). This has the XLT features package which includes such items as: power windows, locks and upgraded mirrors with blind-spot feature; tilt wheel and cruise control; 4 speaker stereo system; fancy chrome bumpers; deluxe interior; and more. This also has options such as factory alloy wheels and rear ventilation system. Has custom tinted windows for reduced glare, and UV deterioration prevention and temperature moderation benefits; rear seat is easily removable and folds flat if desired

MOBILITY

This van was modified in a manner intended to allow certain people in wheelchairs to load and unload and drive themselves, with no assistance from another person. Here is the list of primary features:

* LOWERED FLOOR: from the outside, this appears to be a normal, typical van...but it is surely not. This is a common method of how many mobility vans are created. Beginning at the front edge of the rear seat, this floor is lowered about 4 inches. On this van, that lowered floor area extends to include the area under the removable drivers seat. Therefore, if desired, person in wheelchair could drive directly into the front driver's area and drive from their wheelchair. The floor is smooth, level and solid and is designed for the process as I describe.

* Drivers seat is removable, if desired. When removed, wheelchair can be parked there in order to drive. (ask me about how to anchor wheelchair)

* Power opening swing-out doors on passenger side. This is associated with the lift, so that the doors open or close as needed and then the lift opens or closes as needed.

* Power operated Braun lift with power operated tri-fold platform. When folded, this allows able-bodied people to easily enter/exit when lift is stowed.

* Several locations inside and outside of van where switches are able operate the power doors and lift.

* Has 2 points directly in front of the rear seat to insert anchor straps. There will be 2 additional new anchor point kits included, for you to have installed wherever you choose, which best suits your needs.

* will include 4 wheelchair anchor straps

* new heavy-duty flooring is attached to plywood underpayment. This creates a great surface to maneuver a wheelchair on.

* Note: this currently has hand controls. If you don't want these, we can remove them at no cost.

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 wheelchair-person evaluates, measures and expresses their needs, I can be most helpful regarding this subject if we communicate directly, rather than writing dimensions here.

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.

Each of ours vans 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 our extensive rejuvenation. And others are obvious service or repairs performed recently, prior to my ownership.

Note: Note: Brand new TOYO (nice brand) tires

You Might Like To Know...


* This general style of Ford vans continued through 2007. The 1993-2007 are very similar in appearance and function. Main difference is that in the late 90's they began having the awesome "Triton" motors and airbags.

* This one rides and drives relatively extra-smooth. Various automotive professionals have commented to me that this one drives nicer than most.

Summary of this Gem


This wheelchair van represents a super overall value, when considering miles, condition and features. It looks, feels and functions essentially the same as other full-size wheelchair vans that are priced well over $20,000.

Looks like a sharp, normal van, but it's very mobility-modified

Super clean and tidy engine area


Decent amount of cargo area

This new switch and key-lock operates the power side doors and lift (there are also controls on the dash and on the lift as well)

This shows the lift stowed, which allows able-bodies folks to go in and out with ease.

This is the mode for loading and unloading. Notice the black steel arms that operate the desirable power opening side doors

This platform is long enough and wide enough to accommodate most wheelchairs

This seat can be removed and it also folds flat

Notice the floor under drives seat is exactly level with the lowered floor in middle of van. Driver's seat can be removed and drive from wheelchair

Another view showing the floor is lowered under the driver’s seat, same as middle area of floor

This is new flooring. We decided to make it fun! (it's a bit bold, but it's not boring)

easy and simple controls

The vertical ledge in front of the rear seat, shows where the floor has been lowered. Note: the flooring curves upward where it meets the carpet. Therefore, the actual solid floor area is a bit lower than it appears in the photo

New Stereo

* I apologize for any unclear photos. At times, the conditions make a clear photo impossible.
