Highlights of This Van:

*apx. $2,200 of new and very recent mechanical service: details below (extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $2,200)

* The overall combination of functional and cosmetic features on this van is extremely uncommon and desirable.

* Although this is a one ton, it rides, drives and feels more like a half or three quarter ton. Its not rough or harsh, actually pretty smooth.

Options and Equipment

THE VAN: Began as the well-equipped XLT model of a standard length (not long or short) one ton. Very, very few personal-use wheelchair vans are built on a standard length one ton. This provides maximum durability, toughness, capability and grit. The features, before the mobility conversion, are such as this: 5.4 with auto and overdrive; power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; upgraded interior and exterior trim; tinted windows; power drivers seat; center console; fancy wheel covers; chrome bumpers and grill; and more

Custom wheels; NEW CD STEREO with USB and accessory jack; side moldings; custom striping; tinted windows; front door vent covers


Mobility and Adaptive Features: when new this was very highly converted to being a very special mobility van. In my eight and a half years I have never seen a van that has the overall package of features this van has. Here is a list of its many primarily features:

* Moderately tall, contoured roof: this creates awesome interior headroom, but it's not a squared ugly, boxy roof. This roof is detailed nicely with fabric, insulation, extra lighting, forward storage bin, and more.

* Tall doors: this feature, combined with the tall roof, create super entry clearance, beyond most full size wheelchair vans and all lowered floor minivans

* Heavy-duty Braun lift: this has the solid platform with heavy capacity of 800. Includes a long and wide platform to accommodate virtually any person in any wheelchair.

* Power opening doors: rear doors swing open with special power arms. This is an extremely rare feature and had a new cost of around $5,000! This feature is so rare I have never seen it in person before on a full size van and rarely even in photos.

* Quality, easy to use switches in multiple locations to open the rear doors and run the lift up and down, in and out. Therefore, some folks in wheelchairs can load, drive and unload themselves with no assistance.

* Rear flip and fold seat: toward the rear there is a 2-person seat. It folds up and out of the way when not in use. When being utilized, it has a 3-point seatbelt for one person and a lap belt for the other.

* Various anchor points in floor: various locations in the floor to insert anchor straps

* Includes 4 easy to use, quality anchor straps

* Power turning seat: drivers seat has power controls from Ford, but more notably, it has a special base under it that allows it to have extreme travel up/down…fore/aft….and turns apx 100 degrees. This, combined with the power rear doors and power lift, allows some folks to load, unload and drive themselves with no assistance. (new cost of this feature is $4,500!)

* NOT SEEN IN PHOTOS because it was not yet installed when photos were taken: this will have an additional single-person folding seat, for super versatility and passenger carrying choices. This seat will be directly in front of the folding rear seat and be a very similar style of seat mechanism.

History of Ownership

Wonderful...SAME ONE-OWNER SINCE NEW. This person went all-out when they had this created and customized.


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; very major front brakes; lube/oil/filter; wipers; service lift and power doors; brake system flush

Recent: Nice tires; rear brakes;

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $2,200
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $2,200)

Carfax Report Summary

Nothing notably negative or unusual: no frame damage...no airbags deployed...no structural damage...no "red marks"...no major accident.

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.
* Ford vans had almost the same general appearance inside and out through the year 2007.

Summary of this Gem

For the person or family who wants or needs special capacity or capability or versatility or flexibility…this van has all of that at a combined level that is truly, very rarely found in a personal-use wheelchair van. Please read closely and look at the photos. Some folks search for a year or two to find a wheelchair van that meets this description of features, condition and price. Please feel free to call with any questions.
