Highlights of This Van:

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

Converted when new by a premium company into the very fancy touring/cruising style van you see now. It is gorgeous and fabulous

Has had stellar care over the years and has been highly rejuvenated. As a result, his van could easily pass for being only a few years old

Large wheelchair lift with solid platform has had easy use and should have many years remaining of great service

Options and Equipment

THE VAN:  

Began as a 1/2 ton which is a standard length (not long or short) and has the very desirable 5.4 liter "Triton" V8 and auto with overdrive. Has common power, convenience and appearance features which are part of the upper trim level "XLT" package such as: power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt wheel and cruise control; fancy chrome bumpers; alloy wheels; etc.  Also has options such as factory CD stereo system

GOODIES:

when brand new this was converted by one of my favorite conversion companies that creates what are generally referred to as touring or cruising vans. Their name is..."Universal" (related to Glaval) and they produce a very fancy, well designed and beautiful result. The primary features of the super deluxe conversion are:

* gorgeous leather interior, including leather-wrapped steering wheel
* top-grade seats with high backs, lumbar supports, arm rests
* moderately tall, contour-styled roof
* big side windows with vents and screens
* fancy rear seat can easily fold flat
* sharp exterior graphics, striping and trim
* contoured fiberglass running boards with entry steps and wheel opening flares
* very fancy interior with upgraded seats, fabrics, several levels of lighting, storage compartments, and lots of real wood trim
* audio video system located above the front seat area
* very adjustable power driver's seat
* rear ventilation system with many adjustable ducts

* overhead control console in front area for rear custom lighting, audio/video, etc

MOBILITY:

* Ricon (one of the two industry giants) lift on passenger side. This is a heavy duty lift with two upright support arms which creates a strong, capable, reliable lift. This has a large platform that accommodates even very large wheelchairs

* 4 new anchor points (ready to be installed in locations of a new owners choosing) for using straps to secure a wheelchair to the floor

* New flooring system in middle area: This is my favorite improvement on wheelchair vans, which is very helpful to the person in the wheelchair and able-bodied folks as well.  I consider this feature to be an improvement that most wheelchair vans ought to have, old or new. If you were to 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 under the carpet and pad which wheelchair wheels sink into a bit, creating resistance to maneuvering. Based on my specs and design the floor was greatly improved as the original carpet and pad was removed and then wood was placed directly over the lumpy, bumpy, contoured metal floor.  And so it became a smooth, solid, level floor. Then, commercial quality vinyl material was installed over the wood. This new flooring package notably improves the interior use of the van.

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

Only two owners. The lady I bought it from had owned it since it was about 4 years old. Her and her husband used it because he was in a wheelchair. He had recently passed away and then she sold it to me.

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 van, here is a list of its specifically known new and recent care:

New: power door lock computer; wipers; air filter; drive belts; lube service; coolant flush; lift service and repairs

Recent: Trans flush; tires; fuel pump; fuel filter; front brakes; front bearings;

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items: $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 are the same general style from 1992 thru apx 2006.  Therefore, given the superb condition and very fancy conversion of this van, it looks much newer than its year would indicate.

Summary of this Gem

When you see, feel, drive and operate this van it is actually quite amazing how nice it is. Plus, it does not look like a wheelchair van, rather, it looks like a gorgeous van that is ready to provide ease, comfort and style for all who travel in it.
