Old member NEW VAN!!!

Postby Mr_Bowtie [OP] » March 31st 2010, 2:32am

OK....here are some pictures of my new Van! My wife and I just love it. When I first saw it I said no cause the rust and I really wanted a clean Van. But, I drove a couple Vans that were clean, but stuff was wrong with them. This Van was traded into a dealer in '05 and the dealer kept it to haul his driver's in. He would drop them off and they would drive his cars back to the dealership. From '05 until now they only put 18K miles on it. In those 18K miles they did full tune up, all 4 02 sensors, new CAT, brake lines, front axle half shaft, power window motor, and even more crap. Seems like if it was in question they just changed it. Now all his cars are delivered, so he was trying to get $2900 for it. I tried to get him lower, but settled at $2300 with him on the price. Anyways the Van has 168K miles now and you wouldn't even know it by driving it. Great Van....we love it! :mrgreen:
Don't mind the stains all over the driveway. I think one big one is soda or juice from the kids and the rest is from the POS Plymouth Grand Voyager we just sold today. Now just the two Astros in the fleet!

Not my favorite front end, but its OK. :D
Image

My rims and tires I stole off the '92....now my '92 is sporting the old wagon wheels again. :(
Image

I love the dutch doors....what an improvement! :clap: (that red dot is from the camera)
Image

You can see the rust that was never addressed on the front of the back wheel well. :banghead:
Image

Pretty lightly optioned Van.....not even a overhead console or CD player?

The junk stock wheels that I couldn't stand so they came off right away! :rockon:

Looks as nice as mine when I brought it home 6 years ago.

Nice find. Nothing like a sound drive train and a little cosmetic work to do :thumbup:

Wow! Nice find and very nice clean van, and it's AWD. :thumbup: From the front view it looked just like mine :o , wonder if they're the same paint code? Looks great with the rims on, too.

Thanks guys! The new style dash is so freakin' awesome! I also like looking under the Van and seeing STEEL leafsprings.

Ya they probably are the same color. 8-) I love the rims on it better then on my '92....so off to Wal Mart I went today to get those '96 tires put on my old Wagon wheels for my '92. Only cost me $42 to swap the tires over & figured that would be the cheapest thing for me to do instead of trying to find another set of aluminum rims. :D




I think AA is going to have to make a new group! :rockon:

Really sweet van, Bowtie :clap:

Now you just have to wire wheel and put rust converter and black paint on that trailer hitch so it doesn't stand out quite so much :lol:

I like the rims better on the '96 than on the '92 - good choice. And man, were those old rims ugly...

The dutch doors are definitely the bomb...and you can replace the stock stereo with one that has a CD player (even a stock deck w/CD from a junkyard) and you even can add the center console, if you're so inclined ;)

Screamin Van ! And a great price! You wouldnt get it for that in LA! One question... The grill/front end... I dont think I have ever see a passenger van with the sealed beam grill. Most of the time they are on the panel/delivery vans. Was it an option? Sealed beam or the composite? Always seemed kinda stupid to make two different grills for the same van.
