Note about this amazing, beautiful, heavy-duty van:

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, beautiful, heavy-duty van

Highlights of This Van

* apx. $(Details soon) new and very recent mechanical service: details below
(extensive investment in cosmetic rejuvenation is in addition to this $(details soon)

* Very rare for a wheelchair van to have the optional V10 motor, even on a one ton

* Sweet combination of capability, style and versatility


Options and Equipment

THE 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 (smaller displacement than most “big block” motors, but with the extra torque that a V-10 uniquely offers) with the heavy-duty transmission. And if you go light on the gas pedal, it only gets about 3 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)

GOODIES
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
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:

* Nicely lowered floor: extends all the way from in front of the rear seat, all the way to below the dash area. This 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.

* Awesome new rubberized flooring material is tough, attractive and easy to clean

* Front drivers seat 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.

* 4 anchor straps and various anchor points on the floor

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.


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

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

Summary of this Gem


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, when Ford ceased making traditional style full size vans. 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.

Note on these images: these are preliminary images taken a few weeks ago. Much has happened during the rejuvenation process to make this van look even better. Final images coming soon!

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
