Highlights of This Van:

*apx. $ 2,300 of new and very recent mechanical service: details below
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $ 2,300)

* Very hard to find fancy full size wheelchair van with tall doors, which creates super entry clearance, which some folks must have and have a very hard timing finding

* Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! * Preferable style of lift that allows able-bodied folks to go in and out when lift is stowed

Options and Equipment


Began as a standard length (not long or short) three quarter ton with wonderful, famously reliable 5.4 liter V8 and auto with overdrive. Began with a nice list of power and convenience features such as: power windows, locks, mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; chrome bumpers and grill; etc.


This was converted when new by a nationally known company named, Chariot. The model is called Regent. There is a long list of fancy, functional and desirable features such as: moderately tall, contoured roof; large windows with vents and screens; power, very adjustable leather drivers seat; power rear seat folds to any angle or into a bed; much wood trim and cabinet doors; fancy lighting system; fancy shades; rear ventilation; fancy factory Ford wheels; upgraded interior and exterior trim features.


This has a very high level of features and exceeds nearly all wheelchair vans. Here is the super and uncommon list:

* Very nice lift built by industry giant Braun, has what is called a tri-power folding platform. This allows able-bodied folks to go in and out, even when lift is stowed, because it creates an opening apx. two feet wide for a person to pass through.

* Power operated side doors, which allow opening and closing the doors via a choice of switches in various locations, or via wireless remote.

* Tall doors, which extend the usual doors, up into the tall roof area. These are as tall as I have even seen on a personal use wheelchair van, at apx 10 inches extra height. Less than 20% of all such personal use wheelchair vans have a tall door feature such as this van. These are soooo nice to have (a "must" for some folks) as they make going in and out so much easier and more comfortable for the person in the wheelchair, as well as everyone else.

* Includes a lowered floor in the middle and front passenger areas. It is very rare for a van to have tall roof AND lowered floor, combined. Some vans achieve their interior headroom via lowered floor, and most attain it as a result of having a tall roof. However, less than 5% of all full size wheelchair vans have BOTH features. Combined, these two features create an amazing amount of entry clearance and interior headroom.

* Special floor surface is a result of the lowered floor. Rather than a lumpy, bumpy factory floor surface with squishy pad and carpet on top of it...this simply has smooth, solid surface with quality material covering it. This is super for driving a wheelchair on.

* Includes various anchoring points in the floor for securing a wheelchair.

* Includes 4 anchor straps for securing wheelchair

History of Ownership

With the exception of the past apx. 2,500 miles, two people owned it. The first owner had it for apx. three quarter of the total current miles.


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

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 or within the past 2,500 miles: Front brakes; rear brakes; lube/oil/filter; tires; air filter; AC service; heater control service; accessory belt/s; power steering pump; service rear axle; service lift
Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $2,300
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $2,300)

Summary of this Gem

Wow! The combination this rare van has of amazingly low miles, very fancy touring/cruising conversion and extensive mobility conversion, which results in super entry clearance and interior headroom is...super awesome! To create a van at today's prices with these features would cost approximately $75,000.

Cargo area behind rear seat

Floor is lowered 2-4 inches (varies by location) in the front passenger area and middle of van. This creates extra headroom and also creates a smooth path, if you want to drive into that front area, or partially into that area, with wheelchair
