Here's another one for 'ya! I used to work with the seller's brother in '76. "Yeah. my brother is starting a van conversion business. What's he thinking?" Well, he's STILL in business!

And despite the implications in the title of this Craigslist ad, I think this van had NOTHING to do w/ the A-Team movie.

Too rich for me, but damn nice van. The Recaro seats are just sexy.

Ford had to reflash my computer to change the speed setting for the different tires on my van. However I went from stock to 35" tires with the 4 x 4 lift. I have since gone down to 34" tires or (305's) and even that drop is enough to throw off my speedometer a little now.

A guy on Vannin.com found this amazing deal.


"I picked this one owner B250 a few weeks ago. It is a one owner van with 12k miles, documented. For what ever reason, it was traded into the local Fayetteville NC Mercedes delership in June '11. The Benz dealer had no interest in it, so it got sold to a local used car dealer. They recognized it for what it is. A time capsule. That's where I picked it up.

It has an injected 318, overdrive automatic, cold a/c, tilt steering and cruise control. It all works... and works very well.

Perhaps I should let the photos speak from themselves.

on the way home, it was a long trip











It's been home for a few days now."

WOW! He needs to bring that thing out to some Car Cruise nights or car Shows. It really ticks off the Muscle Car guys when a van or station wagon draws a bigger crowd than their car.


I was a floorcovering installer for many years. Most of my vans were Dodges, so I know this view well (but mine were never THIS pretty).

Cherry red!

Beautiful condition inside and out. Looks so new! I like that the old radio has not been replaced. With the fine accoustics, since this is obviously an upgraded radio with the cassette tape deck, youcan hear the Eagles hits in proper sound.




or this bitchin' song...

Super Suz.. your user name is interesting from a Sprinter point of view because there is a rear-end option available for the Sprinter in Europe that is called the Super Susi (Susi stands for "super single") which is essentially a big ( 285/65R16 ) single tire for the rear instead of a dualie configuration for the 3500.

Useless knowledge for the day..

Don't you spend most of your commuting time on a tricycle?
