Hey all,

Strange place for a 1st post but I've been following this forum for about 6 months now, loved the "Vanning" type vans since I was a kid, am 41yrs young and think THIS might be my 1st attempt at a van!!!

Oh my, SO much wood and harvest gold I'm having childhood flashbacks of our kitchen and my best friends Dodge wagon!

Would this be a good 1st Van?

Never felt like I could comment until I threw or was close to throwing my hat in the ring.

Opinions please?

Thanks!


Pursue happiness with diligence.

Pretty cool van! There’s some rust in the rails but that’s a very fair price for a nice clean conversion. I have two of these vans and many members here have them as well.

One thing to consider is the location of where it lives. If it doesn’t rain much you can protect it from water/rust/aging from being outside all the time. But one of mine had a decent amount of rust that got worse by sitting in the wet PNW every day. If you have even a car port or anything you can to keep weather off it, it will last a lot longer

Thanks, I'm in SLC and would baby it in garage. I saw a 85' E250 with 68,000 original miles, original owner today and it drove pretty well, NO RUST AT ALL, but I'm more of a Dodge/Chevy guy. It was gutless but that didn't bother me, it just seemed small.

what ya'll think?

Fair price

It's sat for 5 years but appears like everything works. Would this be a better deal than the Dodge?

The Dodge owner is currently driving it down from Oregon and says it's always been reliable and runs great.

Opinions?

that's probably more like 168,000 or 268,000 miles...but it does look clean.
