Those pictures are of a 95. Could be a typo, or could be a scam, I have been coming across more and more scams lately.

Edit: just emailed them, they don't want to talk by email, their only response is "call at blah blah blah", makes it even more likely that it's a scam.

Agreed on that last van, not a '99 dog house, dash... smh

The $13K red one yes, rear axle forward, bent rims, that has been into something bad.

I can't pull the previous van before that, guess it sold, I do have to thank you Wimpy the vehicle history link is great, shooting that to my cell to bookmark.

Come on, that is their "reduced" price.

Gotta love used car dealers, they tend to get their reputation for a reason.

Wonder what other kind of damage good ol Jim Babish Auto Sales is trying to hide there.

Carfax would be interesting on the 05.


EDIT:

I see they do have the carfax for it. Shows some accident reports on it.

I would say it is a good start if it lived in Nevada all its life, depending on what you want to do with it that is. I am surprised it does not have an overhead console or leather,seeing it has rear a/c and rear heat? I would ask them for a picture of the build codes so you can see exactly what the van has in it.

They have no idea what they have 'barn style rear door' when it's clearly Dutch doors....what'd they do to the passenger seat? And why is the trim below the steering wheel split and half off?

Other than that, it looks good. All depends what the undercarriage looks like, though.

The picture of the dash was taken at a different time as the outside shots. You can see a green building through the windshield, and not in the outside shots.

Makes you wonder if its not what it looks now.

Saw this one cross posted in Fresno as well. I'm in the SF Bay Area. Hmm little out of my price range. I did find a 2003 AWD at an auction in Illonois for $1300 for an auction, but that would be bought sight unseen. I understand shipping would be around $1200. I see some local AWD but they're in horrible shape. I see a brown one pretty close to this one on my drive to work everyday. It just makes me dream of camping in a van again.

Not mines, but someone offering an astro van conversion bench for free that reclines into a bed. If I had a way to snag it I would.

I want an AWD 2003 to 2005. I want to either make a bed frame or slap in a conversion van roll bed. Put in some cabinets for storage. My wife and i want to winter camp the coast in NorCal. We camp a lot and we did it in tents. It's been horrible. We have slept in our highlander. Just trying to find a decent van to start with. I love the size and shape and the information out there. I just settled and to me the astro safari seems like the perfect platform to build it. So I would assume any AWD would be a good start. I like AWD, my highlander is that and I've driven all over the place in it. -16 with crazy snow in oregon etc. Washed out road around lassen etc. I've been lucky and haven't hit any snags. Plus I sort of want to get back to my childhood and fix my own car. I haven't done that since I messed around with rice rockets in my 20s.

This one has been up for about 6 weeks. I'm sort of leaning toward it. But its not AWD or 2003 and up. The condition looks decent. It's a bit of a drive for me. Debating on checking it out. I would assume they'd might take less since its been up for so long.
