Wow! I'd baseline the belts, fluids, and hoses, and rock the $%# out of that! Will be interesting to see what it brings.

The belted dinette seats are a nice (if not a bit out of place) addition, but that kinda sets it up for 6 passengers with room to sleep only 1 (or 2 smaller people.) hmmm.

Yeah might be a strange layout for sleep compared to a nice SMB but I suspect the manuf would say "sleeps 4" and it may sleep 3 who like each other very much. The Salvage title though...

Sure do like that paint scheme better than the original options. Only seen one better, that overhaul funded by Winchester I believe.
Should have redone the interior - that blue just ages the rig.

Much agreed. I love it from the outside, not too crazy about the interior colors and mods. Why cobble Transit seats in there instead of the easy to build/recreate dinette boxes that it came with? The only benefit I see is integrated seatbelts...... but Transit rears are horribly uncomfortable and you're constantly sitting on the rigid seatbelt latches. They hurt.

Just FYI for interested parties, it is a 96 so it is a very thirsty 460/7.5l, might/might not have an OBD2 port and most definitely has the old non adjustable shoulder belts that will choke you unless your shorter lady friend chokes you first for buying a van with such awful seatbelts.
