WTB: AWD Astro/Safari in New England

WTB: AWD Astro/Safari in New England

Postby tsheils [OP] » November 8th 2020, 11:26pm

Hi All, First post on this forum so I apologize if this isn't in the right place...
Interested in purchasing a decent AWD Astro or Safari suitable to road trip/convert. Preferably a post-2000 model but I'll consider anything! Located in Southern Maine and willing to drive. Cheers.

I'd suggest looking pretty far south, then buying one and driving it up here.
Mine was reasonably rust-free when I got it, but I've still had to spend way too much time dealing with rust-related stuff along the way.

But, if for some reason you don't care about rust, there are tons of cheapo astro/safari's around

They're like Unicorns, but still out there.

Welcome, from Massachusetts.

I've owned a few, so if I can be of any assistance...

May be selling my 2001 Safari, but it's RWD. (I've owned several, and NEVER had an issue in the snow!)

I flew to Maryland for my rust-free 2004. Good luck with the search!
