After two years of dreaming and scheming and a solid six months of Van research at long last I've got a van at home! I could not be happier. Just returned to Boston, left friday am with my co driver, 750 miles to Michigan in my '12 Mustang trade, picked up the van on saturday, drove to Battle Creek MI to get some Sienna seats. Set out home saturday, spent the night in Toledo and arrived in VT last night. Yikes! Those pics are crappy dealer screen caps, here is my first pic. Yellow anyone? The color is School Bus Yellow, in person it's got a lot of orange. I did not want to look like a plumber with a white van. Mission accomplished! This van was damaged in transit, went back to Ford for repair then resold as used to the dealer. I got it for a steal with 700 miles, 2015 T250 carg0 148" wheelbase. Almost came home with this instead. Not. Nice car though. It's a new GT500, costs 60 grand, sporting a flat crank V8 with 520hp. Redline is 8400, that can't suck. Here is the seats - all out of Sienna minivan, I got three lounger style with footrests and two normal recliner. These are really nice seats, well made and sturdy. All have integrated seat belts which is a win. Toledo, I90E at 7am. Nuff said. One of the things I like most about the truck so far is the view out. It is incredible - huge side glass and windshield. Coming from a Mustang the road presence of a huge yellow van is awesome too. The rig is very impressive to drive - it feels like a big car, decent steering, great brakes and the ride is not awful. It is even not too loud considering it's an empty cargo. Visibility is outstanding. This truck has the base 3.7 v6 which ironically for me is also offered in the Mustangs. Tuned for torque here it rates at 260hp, 275tq I think. It is no hot rod but combined with the 6 speed auto it does fine. At 60mph I could get 20mpg, 65-70 nets 18 ish. The tank holds 25 gallons for 400 + miles easy. My friend and I got through the days like this. Here is another shot of the seats, I don't have a good shot of the footrests but they are really comfy. I am not sure yet how to configure them - I have a lot of planning and work to do! Here is the rough plan right now. Sound deaden and light insulation. I don't need winter warm but even now it's chilly while driving. My brother is donating oak flooring so that goes over the deadener. I will mount at least two seats - I have the tracks too so that gives 39" of sliding room. It has not factory hitch so I need a receiver, I want to put a cargo holder or bike mount in there. I need some kind of driving lights, I like the PIAA led light bars but the one I want is $600. That can wait lol. I also need a bed in there, no design nailed down yet. It needs to come in and out easily. I need bike holders for one or two bikes inside, not sure yet what that will look like. It will be used mostly to transport this and my buddies KTM690. I also need to get mini bikes inside to ride with my son who is 6. Right now he has an Oset but a gas bike is likely in his future. Most of my other bikes you can actually ride them to where you want them lol. The inside finish if I can do it will be almost just like LurkerLous build. Simple panels and a basic headliner with attachment points all over. I also need a bulkhead to keep the AC and heat in. Mine may be as simple as an insulated curtain as I don't want it there all the time. I am sure I am forgetting a bunch but I need some sleep! This is going to take a while but I hope for this spring to have the floor in and seats mounted.
