Nice van. A U-joint or Agile looking for a place to happen. I bet it doesn't last long.

Agreed, great price!!!

The pattern on the seat fabric is kinda unusual, some kind of hunting-inspired semi-camo / rattlesnake pattern, it appears? Makes me think of duck hunting for some reason.

If I were in the market I would jump on this. Throw a Ujoint 4x4 on there and it's ready to rock.

Yeah, I'm bummed on this one... Looks like a great deal. Damned kids car seats needing to face forward

Future vehicle to use later? Sort of like buying whiskey or wine for the future? :-p

Haha love it! Totally. Who wouldn't want a Sportsmobile Cellar....with a carefully-selected variety of well-stored/preserved examples and vintages of Sportsmobiles. To be enjoyed at an appropriate future date, circumstance, and with the perfect companions.

If this one had the RB30 layout, I'd be getting some crazy thoughts myself.

Smokin' deal. I don't think I'm hoity-toity enough to be allowed in the Berkshires though, otherwise I'd buy it.

On a serious note, what are the opinions on older model vans with low mileage. I've always been under the impression that sitting idle for long periods is not good for vehicles.

Do you consider this one old? I guess I don't consider a Ford van old unless it's older than mine, which is a 95. Mine had 20k on it when I bought it and sat outdoors (in the salt air) so it had some mild rust issues, but as far as systems go it was fine. This one looks very clean so I'm betting it has probably been stored indoors, at least in winter. Ford vans are incredibly tough, even when neglected or abused, but if I were gonna trust it on trips I would still do a thorough tune-up, including all filters, lubricants, etc. If you're fairly handy this is a great excuse to spend a weekend getting to know the underside of your new van so you don't have to learn it in the dark on the side of an interstate somewhere. If you aren't interested in doing any of it, it probably won't cost you but a few hundred for a lot of peace of mind. SMB owners typically don't abuse such expensive vehicles though. I'm betting the maintenance has been kept up and the records come with it.

Ask about the tires!
