General Description
Over the years I've received many calls from folks who seek a van that is very heavy duty and capable of towing heavy, if desired, but they don't want the extra long body, or super tall ugly roof, stripped down cosmetics, etc. This is actually the first van I've had in 10 years that meets that challenging goal. This is that extremely rare van. If you have an active lifestyle (maybe you have a toy hauler?) or possibly you need to tow a heavy trailer for business use, this is the incredibly rare wheelchair van that can do it, nicely and in style.

Note about this amazing, beautifully-beastly van:
Began as a one-ton (e350) standard length (not long or short) with moderate trim level of XLT. As a result, it began with common power, convenience and cosmetic features such as: power windows, locks and mirrors; tilt and cruise; chrome bumpers and fancy headlights; misc interior and exterior trim features; much more. This has the amazing drivetrain if you want super power, torque and reliability. This is the wonderful Triton V10 with the heavy-duty transmission. And if you go light on the gas pedal, it only gets a couple MPG less than the common 5.4 liter V8 these usually have (some folks love diesel, but they're essentially non-existent in a wheelchair van)

Wow, this rare van is gorgeous! In addition to the XLT level of features as summarized above, this van had the following items added during its custom conversion: fancy Ford factory wheels; running boards and entry steps with integrated fender flares; custom graphics and striping package; various interior upgrades

Mobility and Adaptive Features
When new, this was converted into the highly versatile and capable wheelchair van that it now is. Here's a list of its primary mobility features:

* Deeply lowered floor: extends all the way from in front of the rear seat, all the way to below the dash area. This deeply lowered floor creates a super amount of entry clearance and interior headroom, without the need for a tall roof. This floor is unusual in a very positive way, which is that the front seating area is lowered more than in many other similar vans that I have seen and owned. This creates extra floor to ceiling space and extra distance from the floor to under steering wheel, which some folks need. In general, you get the best of both worlds with this van. Because, you have only a few inches less interior headroom than a van with an added tall roof and the same entry clearance as a tall roof van that has what are called, tall doors. However, this van usually can go places that the tall roof vans cant, such as: drive-thru windows; parking garages; carports; carwashes; etc. For some folks, these are MAJOR advantages (or necessities) of not having a tall roof.

* Front drivers seats is removable: therefore, if a person wants or needs to drive from a wheelchair, it can be removed via quick release and wheels on the bottom for easy removal.

* Power swinging side doors: these doors open with power arms, which are an important part of the complete package that allows some folks in wheelchairs the ability to load/unload and drive themselves fully independent of any assistance form another person.

* Wonderful lift: This is of the style that does not impede the front passenger area whatsoever and because of the tri-fold platform, this platform folds mostly out of the way to allow able-bodied folks to get in and out of the van when the lift is stowed.

* Wireless remote operation: there is no need to use switches (although they are provided as well) as you can operate the side doors and lift with a wireless remote control.

* PASSENGER SEAT NOTE: This van does not currently have a front passenger seat, as it was designed for a person in wheelchair to park it there and then transfer into the drivers seat. If you want or need a front passenger seat, that can be accomplished for $1,000 added cost.

Summary

This is an amazing van. One of the best I've ever had the pleasure of offering. As you've read above, there is a long list of reasons why this is an absolutely special and fantastic van. It looks, feels and functions the same as one through 2015. This heavy-duty, specially equipped Ford is not for everyone, but for the right person, this is the dream wheelchair van they've been trying to find.

Lift platform is wide enough and long enough to accommodate most wheelchairs

Nicely lowered floor, in middle and front areas. This creates enough entry clearance and interior headroom to suit the needs of most folks.

Platform power-folds in 3 parts, allowing able-bodied folks to easily go in and out when lift is stowed

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!
