Highlights of This Van:

  apx. $2,250 of new and very recent mechanical service ! : details below (extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $2,250)

  So much van for this price range.  And it's incredibly clean, sharp and nice.  When you see, feel and drive this one, it seems much newer.  I would not hesitate to drive it thousands of miles.  It's ready to go anywhere.   

Please see the photos and read this page, as this very affordably priced "Certified" van has a lot to offer.

 

Options and Equipment

THE VAN:  Began as a 3/4 ton with famously wonderful 5.7 (350) V8 engine and automatic with overdrive.  In its original form it included comfort and convenience features such as: power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; stereo system; etc. And then when new, it was converted by a desirable, significant conversion company by the name of "Glaval". Features described below...

GOODIES: This Glaval conversion (nationally known, higher quality company) was very extensive and includes a long list of cosmetic and functional features and benefits, such as: front and rear ventilation;  large windows with vents and shades; contoured, sturdy running boards and wheel flares; fancy bumpers and exterior trim; roof storage rack and designated stowage area; fancy blue and gold accent graphics; cozy front captains chairs have armrests and power drivers seat; fancy rear seat which folds to a bed, with power, and also includes an integrated extension in order to become a quite large "bed"; extensive wood interior trim; plush interior fabrics, carpet, walls, etc; much custom lighting; and more

MOBILITY: In apx. 2001, this was developed into a wheelchair-access van. Here is the list of its mobility features:

* Has an awesome heavy-duty Ricon lift that has the wonderful feature of having the platform automatically fold into two parts, thus allowing easy passage of able-bodied people in and out of the van when the lift is stowed.  This lift was brand new in 2001.  It remains in nearly new, original condition.  It has clearly had VERY little use since new. This was due to the fact that most of the time since 2001 it has been in the possession of a family member who inherited it from the wheelchair-bound person whom it was converted for.  This is also much of the reason this van has such low miles.

* There is a brand new flooring system that is a feature I often have installed as part of my commitment going above and beyond rejuvenation...by actually enhancing a van, making it better than ever in certain ways. I love this upgrade because in the course of use it provides a lot of benefit for the person in wheelchair, and their families too.  The main area of the van (the middle section) has solid wood underlayment, with a special-grade of commercial carpet over it.  This carpet wears incredibly well, is super easy to clean, and is nearly as easy a a vinyl floor to move the wheelchair on.  And yet it has the feel of carpet.  This package creates a very smooth, firm and level area to maneuver the wheelchair on. This is a big improvement over the usual carpet with soft padding underneath, which is laid over a lumpy, bumpy, stamped-metal floor. This brand new floor package makes for a very secure, solid and comfortable surface.

* Useful and nifty item: has a VERY special rear suspension system which includes: air shocks; on-board compressor; individually adjustable shocks; and has gauge and pump switch on dash, cool. This system exists because some wheelchair users like to have extra firmness on the wheelchair loading side of van. See the photo with caption of the gauge and switch. This system would be great to use if you want to tow a load.  And it is perfect for its original intended purpose, which is to prevent the side of van from leaning when loading & unloading.

* Includes 4 new pods to attach anchor straps to, ready to be installed in the location which best suits your needs, as specific desired locations for such anchors is unique to each wheelchair van user.

 History of Ownership

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".  As for this vehicle:

Valuable Note: this van was incredibly well cared for by the people I bought it from.  They had invested much toward its fine care in the prior few thousand miles.  The list of "recent" you see below is all items I have receipts for which they had recently paid for during their ownership.

New:  HD battery; serpentine belt; wipers; misc interior lighting repair; oil/lube; cooling system service/flush; clean/adjust rear brakes;

Recent: major A/C system repair/service including new compressor; transmission service;  alignment; front brakes; front shocks; rear axle service; fuel filter; air filter; various "tune-up"

Wow, approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $2,250 !

 (extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $2,250)

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.

* This classis style of 3/4 ton GMC (same as Chevy) is super solid and built for serious work.  And the parts and labor are easy to get and very reasonably priced, when its time for any service or repairs.   

Summary of this Gem

I often hear from folks who tell me they don't necessarily need a tall roof or lowered floor on a wheelchair van, they just need a solid van with nice miles and a quality lift. This van is all of that, and much more.  It's gorgeous, capable and fancy...it has so many comfort, function and appearance features. 

Each van I offer is very special, due to the extensive rejuvenation & restoration it has received. This one is #314

3/4 ton vans have various benefits versus the much more common 1/2 ton wheelchair vans.  Because, features such as brakes, cooling system, suspension, axles, transmission and other items are a bit heavier-duty.  And yet there is little "tradeoff" or compromise.

Super low original miles, ands it shows. This van is extremely sharp and it looks, feels and even smells like a much newer van.

This gauge and switches is mounted by the left knee area and is for the rear air suspension.  Push the button and the air pump in rear of van inflated the shocks.  This is a super feature that is not only great for its ability to prevent the van from leaning when loading/unloading, but its also awesome if you want to tow a load and desire firmer rear suspension.
