Looks like a well done interior.

Like all van customizing, it's to each owners taste.

But I'm not a fan of the dash. I like gauges.

The floor shift appears to me to be wildly impractical, at best. Get a decently long lever on it, then maybe, but as is, no. I use my shifter...I down shift when I tow, hold gears on acceleration. That one is unusable when moving, at least with my arm length.

Hood louvers, nice. Tube grille, nice.

Foam sound insulation for an interior...not sure how I feel, but I'm thinking no.

So with those "issues" for me, at that price, no.

But as I say, to each his own.
