Highlights of This Van:

$1,800 of new and very recent mechanical service: details below
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $1,800)

* This van was created to enable a person to load, drive and unload themselves with no assistance. Therefore, this is a highly capable and extra-versatile wheelchair van.

* Ford vans have a very similar appearance through the year 2007. Therefore, this looks like a van several years newer than its year indicates.

Options and Equipment

This began as a half ton with 4.6 liter motor and auto with overdrive. It included XLT level features and interior and exterior trim, with such features as: power windows, locks, mirrors; tilt and cruise; chrome bumpers; factory alloy wheels; etc. Then, when brand new, it was converted by TWO major, national conversion companies, as described below:

* Touring/cruising conversion by Elkhorn this is a great example that all fancy fans don't have tall roofs. This van includes the same package of features as the more common tall roof fancy vans typically have, such as: running boards and wheel opening flares; fancy striping and graphics; upgraded windows with pleated shades; fancy interior with wood accents, custom lighting, upgraded seats and upholstery, nice stereo system; rear seat that folds to a bed, rear ventilation, overhead consoles; and much more.

* Super mobility conversion by major national mobility van convertor, Rollx: this very well engineered and constructed conversion includes the following long list of mobility features:

* Moderately lowered floor from rear seat all the way to the dash, which creates nice entry clearance and interior headroom

* Both front seats can be easily removed, allowing a wheelchair to be parked in either front location

* Power opening side doors

* Power operated lift

* Lift has a power folding platform which when folded allows easy passage of able-bodied folks as well as allowing easy access/egress for a wheelchair into front passenger area, or for a passenger sitting in the seat to recline it normally, due to not being impeded by the lift

* Wireless remote operation (or use switches) of doors and lift, which among other general comfort and ease benefits, allows some folks in wheelchairs to load/unload/drive themselves with no assistance

* NEW...this will have 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 actually consider this feature to be an improvement that many 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 it became a smooth, solid, level floor. And then a fantastic type of commercial flooring was used to cover the wood. This material is super tough, and easy to clean. And so, this van will have this new flooring package, which notably improves the interior use of the van.

History of Ownership:

Only two owners since new. Each owned it a similar amount of time and distance.

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".

Here are the new and recent items:

New:


As for this vehicle, because it has such amazingly low miles the number of items that would have needed repair or replacement is minimized, even though the van is a number of years old:

Recent:
Tires (note: brakes are currently a very nice level of 60 and 80 percent remaining, due to such low miles)

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 have a very similar appearance through the year 2007. Therefore, this looks like a van several years newer than its year indicates.

* Because there is no tall roof, this can go where most tall roof vans cannot, such as: carports, parking garages, drive-thru restaurant windows, etc.


Summary of this Gem
* The first very positive fact anyone will notice about this van is the incredibly low miles. But there is so much more to this van than the amazing miles. Some folks love having a highly capable wheelchair van that looks almost like a very fancy, but normal van. This is a super example of that. Yes, this van has a special combination of comfort, style and aesthetics while having a super level of mobility conversion. And yes you get miles that are so low it's hard for some folks to believe, but it is true and documented.

Footrest is easily removable, as are both front seats, if you want to park a wheelchair in either front location

Lift platform folds into 3 parts with power and creates generous space for able-bodied folks to go in and out when lift is stowed
Notice the power arms on these doors, which swing the doors out via switches or wireless remote. Operating the lift is also done with such switches or remote
Easy, nearly level transition on/off platform
Plenty wide and long will accommodate nearly any wheelchair
Notice the tall ledge in front of the rear seat. That indicates the lowered floor, which goes all the way forward to just below the dash. This modification creates the entry clearance and interior headroom most folks in wheelchairs need.

Switches for accessory lighting and other features
Brand new, modern wireless remote system for power side doors and lift functions. There is a keychain remote and the larger one as well.
Ledge in front of the rear seat clearly indicates the notable depth of the lowered floor. In this van, the lowered floor extends all the way to below the dash area. This is a very major, highly valuable and helpful feature. This floor creates notable extra headroom inside and entry clearance when loading. It also allows for a wheelchair to easily be parked in either front seat location.
Easily and quickly remove either front seat, if you want to park a wheelchair in front.
Super place to park wheelchair and due to the lowered floor, there is a good amount of headroom

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