1998 Astro RWD Cargo A/C P/S Cruise Tilt Cat Back etc

February 2nd 2011, 3:36am

$4200.
Had to make a decision on which van to sell. I went with the '98.
I made some changes to it as you will see.
I am keeping the wheels and tires (BFG's and Ralleys), Swapped out the Safari Grille for the Astro Deluxe.

171k
Brand new tires all around. 215-75-15's. Maybe 500 miles on them. Just had them rebalanced today before reinstalling them. It had a vibration and that cured it.
Cat back exhaust system. two new O2 sensors. Bank 1. It took care of the Check engine light.
New shocks all around in last year.
Sun visor. I know a lot of people were excited to see this still available.
Deluxe grille swap with Sylvania Silverstar bulbs.
Cruise/Tilt column swap. I have original column with original ignition switch if you want to swap it in. I just didn't have tools to take apart correctly.
I have a couple solid rear doors and a solid slider I am considering to let go with the van.

Last week I filled tank and did math and noticed 18mpg. can't guarantee all the time but I know last few weeks I was driving all highway.
Why this one? It really came down to a flip of the coin. The tan one is my first Astro and it does have some rust that I can fix and still paint white like this one.
I am battleing the distributor issue with it but I think I have it beat. So I will be happy with it.
Here are pics from today and will be doing an oil change tomorrow. Quaker State and a Fram Filter.
A link to my photobucket albumn with all pics since I have had the van.

If anybody is in between Phoenix Arizona and Los Angelas, I will be doing the drive next week and spending weekend in Buena Park for the Council of Councils meeting. If the van does not sell before that time, I will be driving out there. I will have title with me and cash for a bus home if I can sell.
I put new front pads on van yesterday, 2/11.

Thanks,
Jim
