Yeah I saw that. That’s the dealer I bought it from.

Nice! For some reason the first look at the interior caused me to think it might have been done by Van Specialties in Tualatin, Oregon.

I hope she's all you want her to be, and good luck on finding the name of the first owner too!

Thanks James it’s similar to a RB42 and I found out it is a partial SMB interior buildout.
So I forgot if SMB used 8x6.5 lug pattern. I searched and was able to find a definite answer.

That must have been an emotional roller-coaster. Surprising, would have figured it would be a great vehicle since it's billed having such low mileage. Persistence will get you where you want to be - keep hunting, ones out there with your name on it.

Bummer!!! Sorry man!
That rig had me salivating.

"Rough shape" --- care to elaborate a bit?
.....are you referring to hidden rust/corrosion?
Or.....just a general state of neglect and poor maintenance?
Or both?

Van sure looks nice in all those photos!
Again, sorry to hear dude (er, dude1play)

Yes on all the above mentioned. Had a rusted through spot on the passenger rear roof corner. The entire roof needs attention as well. Poor maintenance was the main issue. It looked like it should of had 100+ thousand miles on it. I had a list of cosmetic issues. The t-case shifter broke off in my hand. But the straw that broke the camels back was the material that came out on the transmission dip stick. I bounced at that point. The dealership was awesome to work with they were surprised like I was. I really picked it a part. To me it’s not worth the premium price. I was bummed but I’m glad I knew what to look for and didn’t get stuck with it.

Sorry to hear it didnít work out but this may help someone. Ford transmission dipstick tubes have a habit of rusting on the inside from condensation. I pulled the dipstick on my super low mileage Rv one day and it was coated with crud. Google told me I was not the only one. If you move it around and clean it off a few times youíll probably get good clean transmission fluid.
