General Description
Began as a Town & Country, which is the top level of the Chrysler corporation vans (includes Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager). This is the top level of T&C, which is the LXi model, which on a Dodge Caravan is labeled as a "Limited". Fewer than 1% of all Chrysler/Dodge/Plymouth vans have these features. This van is the most highly equipped minivan that any company built in its era. Has the upgraded 3.8 motor with overdrive trans. There's a very long list of features in addition to the common power and convenience features. The highlights of these extra features are such as: leather seats; heated drivers seat; fancy 16 inch wheels; upgraded trim features in and out; fog lights; ABS brakes; traction control; overhead console; fancy "infinity" sound system; tinted windows; custom hand-painted striping; and more

Mobility and Adaptive Features
Was converted when new by IMS, which is a division of the industry giant, Braun. This van has the elements usually found in an extensive minivan mobility conversion, plus an extremely rare extra feature. See below for feature details:

* Power ramp out passenger side door. Ramp is plenty long and wide, allowing for nearly any wheelchair and even large people to go in and out.

* Power sliding passenger side door. This operates along with the ramp and the "kneeling " suspension in unison.

* "Kneeling" suspension. This helpful feature causes the van to lower several inches in the rear, which notably reduces the degrees of angle of the ramp, and makes going in and out smoother, easier and safer. Note: a switch allows turning this feature off, if you don't want to use it, such as for loading direct on or off of a curb or sidewalk.

* Easily removable drivers seat. Just flip a lever and remove or install. (front passenger seat was removed at some time in history. I had a floor project done in that area to eliminate bolt holes, grooves, various detractors, etc.)

* Many locations for inserting anchor straps in the floor, for securing wheelchair.

* Mobility conversion functions can be operated either with switch on the outside panel of the body, or via switches in various locations inside, or via wireless remote.

* Has a very valuable (apx $5,000 new) feature called a "power turning seat". This allows extreme travel up/down and fore/aft and most importantly, this seat is able to rotate apx 100 degrees. Therefore, folks who have an ability to transfer can move from their wheelchair into this seat and then drive.

* VERY RARE SPECIAL FEATURE: has a single captains chair in the middle area of the van. A clever capability is that this can be positioned either in the center or toward the drivers side of the floor, depending on the desire of the user. And it can also be removed entirely. Movement of it takes just a minute or two and is done so with a quick release lever. During my years I have only seen this feature in a couple of vans.

Summary
If you want a very special wheelchair van priced in the low teens, this one may be impossible to match. With its top level features, low miles and now it will be in "Certified' condition...in this price range this is a truly exceptional van .

Status

Rejuvenation has begun: I have recently acquired this van and the extensive rejuvenation process has begun, which is carried-out by various professional shops and specialists. If you are interested in securing this van for your future purchase (many of my vans are spoken for in this way prior to completion of rejuvenation) please feel free to call or mail me with any questions

 

NOTE: I am always searching for more vans which are a nice addition to the mix of vans we have to offer. I will post initial information here about each van as I purchase, transform, and then make them available for sale. From the time I purchase a van until my transformation process is completed, averages approximately 4-6 weeks.

Please visit this page periodically.

Thank you,

Rick

Dear Rick... I want to take this time to let you know how excited I am about the 95 Ford camping van that I bought from you. I just love it!! I truly appreciated your kindness, patience and understanding throughout the whole process. I also appreciate the quality of the van. You were nothing like those typical car salesman. You were friendly, cheerful and not pushy....and still gave me a great deal!!! I will certainly send folks your way.

Thanks again!
