It is bone stock. The only real upgrade the van has is a Sony CD player. Interior is near mint with 4 captain chairs and 1 bench. I do have an overhead console I want to install whenever I feel up for messing around with the headliner!

Did you take the headline out or cut the hole in the headliner with it in place? Any tips for making sure I cut the hole in exactly the right spot?

Looking to possibly sell my 1987 Astro in order to upgrade to something newer. The van has 160k miles but the engine was rebuilt at 130k miles. As you can see it is probably the best condition 87 Astro available anywhere. Nothing set in stone at this point, just trying to get an idea of its value. Feel free to shoot any offers and questions my way!
