Being patient and finding a good one is worth the effort. Better luck with the next one.

Dont be in a hurry there are lots out there ...... be picky but not to picky after all your looking at a 25 yr old veh, there will always be something to fix after you get it.


Good things come to those who are patient ...

Yeah i've changed my mindset about buying, I'd settle for just 'good bones' and I can deal with the rest, after all it wont be anything like a daily driver.
These two i've seen though both had motor and/or trans issues. Not buying a van with a leaking water pump and temp gauge not working. Also not buying one with a trans that whines when you are on the gas.
Theres one about 4 hours away from here in Texas, another Explorer edition im hoping to see this week. Fingers crossed on that one although its a 4 hour drive home so it better be ok

Lister being picky can pay off.
We went looking for quite a while before finding our '95. Since we already had two vans at the time we were in no hurry.
It's a G20 Sherry conversion and when we found it, 4 years or so ago, it was one owner, kept inside with only 29K miles and had the original tires from 1995 still on it! It was part of a living estate sale and a little more money but was exactly what we were looking for.
BTW be careful! Vans have always been very addictive. While we've been as low as two, we're at four right now........ lol

woah! Yeah I can see that totally. I need one for camping, excursions etc but I'd love an old 70s one to bring out on Sundays and restore too

Yep! I love that edition.
I really hope I come home with it!

The last one I looked at had a sunroof above the bed, this one doesnt seem to, I wonder if that was an aftermarket addition
