    I got this thing for 500 bucks because the guy didnt want it anymore cause his company was going to **** and the van would never hold a battery charge. It had been sittin for about two years, so i towed it home, changed the oil. put in a new battery and fixed the jacked up battery terminals and wiring they had done. Been driviing it for two weeks now with no problems.

    The only other things it needed was a blower motor switch and a rear window. That cost me another $65. So not to bad of a deal so far....
