Highlights of This Van:

  apx. $ 3,000 of new and very recent maintenance/service: details below (extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $3,000)

  Yes, it is as immaculate in person as it appears in the photos...and it is as stellar mechanically & functionally as it is wonderful cosmetically

 

Options and Equipment

THE VAN:

 This began as a 1/2 ton, standard length model with upgraded XLT level trim.  It has a small-block 5.8 liter V8 (351) and automatic with overdrive. Has full convenience features such as power windows, mirrors, locks and tilt, cruise control, stereo system, front and rear ventilation systems, alloy wheels, chrome bumpers and more.

GOODIES:  

When new this van received a major transformation of the cruising/touring nature which included extensive cosmetic and functional improvements such as: aluminum running boards; large "picture" windows with vents; much real wood trim and accessories inside; pleated fabric window shades; fancy fabrics on ceiling and walls; Upgraded carpet; various custom interior lighting; also has new chrome protective side moldings and classy striping accents      

Mobility/Adaptive features:

* As you may have learned on this website or elsewhere, wheelchair vans achieve their interior headroom and side entry clearance via one of two methods: some have a tall roof and side doors and others have a deeply lowered floor. This van has the deepest floor possible, which is 8 inches.  And it is an ideal floor because it is not only low in the middle and side entry area, but it is lowered all the way to the dash...on BOTH sides.  (Many low floor vans are only lowered in the middle section of the van) 

Very notably: the floor lowering process greatly benefits the side entry area, which has a whopping 8 inches extra clearance. Check out the photo of the tape measure indicating the 55 inches of entry clearance at the lowest point. This side clearance dimension is similar to a typical van with a tall roof and tall doors!  However, with this van you can go into even the shorter of the drive-thru window lanes, parking garages, carports, etc  

* Both front seats are mounted on quick-release pedestals and have wheels on them.  This allows you to easily remove either front seat in order to park a wheelchair in the front passenger area, or to park a wheelchair in the drivers location

* Has various versatile locations in the floor for utilizing anchor straps to secure a wheelchair

* Equipped with a Crow-River lift, which is produced by #1 industry-giant, "Braun".  This model is called a "Vangater" and it has a single arm design which when combined with the folding two part platform, creates a generous pass-thru space when stowed. This allows friends and family easy ingress/egress to the middle and rear of the van.  The single post design (versus having two upright posts) also creates generous clear space behind the front passenger seat, in case you want to park a wheelchair there, or if you want to fully recline the existing seat.  In a van with a two post lift, you cant do either of those actions.

* Has Braun-brand power openers for the side doors which open with a simple switch control. 

* Has brand new rubberized flooring material, which is much preferred to carpet by most folks in wheelchairs and their friends and family, because it is much easier to clean and is much easier to roll the wheelchair on.  

* Several locations (on dash and rear exterior and on lift) with switches to operate the power side doors and the lift features.  When combined with removable front seat/s, this van is fully operational by certain people in wheelchairs with no assistance needed from another person.

 

 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 person evaluates, measures and expresses their needs, I can be most helpful regarding this subject if we communicate directly.

 

History of Ownership

Has had only two owners.  The first owner had it for about 6 years and the family I acquired it from owned it since then.  For the first couple of years it was in Colorado and then spent the rest of its life in Central and northern California. 

The reason this has such incredibly low miles is because the first owner used it only at their vacation home/s and the second owner was very wealthy and this was his "extra wheelchair van" and it was rarely used. 

 

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:

New:  Front and rear air conditioner service; Two heavy duty batteries (this van has an optional dual battery system) ; air filter; accessory belts; oil/lube/filter; major transmission service; cooling system flush; rear differential service; service lift and power side doors; rubber flooring material and rear carpet; rear tires

Recent: Front brakes have 80% remaining; rear brakes have 80% remaining; front tires have 90% tread;

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $ 3,000 

(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $3,000)

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 a major style and content change in 1992, after being similar for 17 years.  Other than minor cosmetic changes and updates over the years they are largely unchanged from 1992 until the mid-2000's.  Therefore, due to the amazing overall condition of this van, it could easily pass for a van of 1/2 its years, or newer.

* A new van with similar touring/cruising conversion as well as this extensive mobility conversion would cost $60,000-$65,000 !

Summary of this Gem

With 34k actual miles and now highly rejuvenated to "Certified" condition, this is a special, wonderful van which represents a super overall value.  Rarely does a wheelchair van at this price offer so much function, premium condition and low miles.

Notice the deeply lowered floor, which is a full 8 cinches...it is the most possible.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Notice the platform is able to fold in half, which creates a space for an able-bodied person to go in and out when lift is stowed.  This feature also lends to having lots of room for a wheelchair to move in and out of the front passenger seating area.

Adjustable footrest for driver assists in creating a comfortable driving position.

Gorgeous from every angle

Big windows add light, visibility... and fresh air via the vents at bottom

The extra space between the body and top of bumpers is due to the deeply lowered  floor, which necessitates raising the body a few inches in order to dimensionally compensate
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Rear seat could be moved forward to create more rear cargo space.  Currently, there is generous floor area in front of the rear seat, allowing a nice resting area for rear passengers feet
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
So versatile, attractive and ready for...just about any trip you want to take
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
This body style began in 1992 and looks extremely similar until the mid 2000's. Given the immaculate condition of this van, it could easily pass for a van of 1/2 its age...or even newer.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Has factory stereo and notice the controls for front and rear ventilation
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
This is an overhead console above driver area, has lighting plus controls for the power side doors and lift functions
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
engine compartment is extra clean.  This van has a very nice feature for a wheelchair van, which is a factory dual-battery system.   And both batteries are brand new, heavy-duty....and are the finest brand, which is "Interstate".
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Both seats are easily removable and when removed expose a track system for easy anchoring of wheelchair
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Rear ventilation ducts are custom mounted in this side-wall location which is very helpful, adjustable and comfortable for wheelchair users.

This lift is in super condition, after having had very limited, light use.

Generously-sized platform will accommodate most wheelchairs and their users

Gorgeous interior has deluxe fabrics, real wood trim, lots of adjustable lighting, large windows with vents and screens, and much more.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
This rubberized floor is brand new and is much preferred by most folks in wheelchairs and their friends and family because it stays much cleaner and is so much easier to roll the wheelchair on than carpet.

This is a good view of the quick-release mechanism and wheels on the seat pedestal.  These seats can be removed or installed in a couple of minutes.

Another nice view of the seat pedestal.  The release mechanisms are very simple and easy to use.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Rear seat folds very flat into a bed or bench.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Has just a hair less than 55 inches of clearance at the lowest point of the side entry.  This is comparable to the clearance on an average van with tall roof and tall side doors (this is because the floor is lowered on this van, not only in the main floor area , but at the entry-point as well)
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Power opening side doors add a large measure of versatility, assisting folks in wheelchairs who are capable, to load and unload themselves.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
These are lockable controls for the power side doors and lift. They are located next to the rear license pate.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
 
Has controls on the lift, or above the driver, and on rear license plate area
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
These controls operate the lift, which are necessary if a person in a wheelchair wants to load and unload themselves.
(Click on Picture to Enlarge)
Nifty, useful....extra piece of mind:  This switch utilizes the factory-installed dual-battery system.  If your main battery goes dead for some reason, this switch allows for using the extra battery to start the van.

You can easily remove either front seat to allow parking a wheelchair in either front

 location.
