Seller's Description

What do you get when you mix an 80’s shorty with a 70’s aesthetic? Bear! This rig is a gem. Here are the specs: -rare 4-speed manual transmission -original, locally-owned family van before changing hands last summer -4.9L straight six, aka the “bulletproof Ford 300” rebuilt @ 150k *sounds so good, drives so smooth* -new Nokian Rotiiva A/T tires with <50 miles and transferable warranty (1/2021) -oil change <300 miles -replaced engine block-mounted control module with high performance HEI distributor -replaced brakes, hoses, brake master cylinder, parking brake -replaced power steering pump and lines, oil pan -new clutch and slave master cylinders -detailed stack of service records and parts replacements included -2.5” hitch with 1500# towing capacity Camper build is pro: -chocolate brown and tan suede interior with velvet wrap-around blackout curtains -fresh water faucet and single burner (propane) stove combo -memory foam bed -plenty of interior, tucked away storage in addition to closet shelving and under bed -faux leather 360° swivel captain’s chairs -interior fan and lights throughout cabin -lights/fan/outlets run on shore power or inverter/power station/solar -pressure-treated top deck mounted on steel rack with ladder access -diiiiiid I mention the joy of stargazing through the tinted moonroof over the bed, or removing the glass and climbing up to the van deck? What Bear needs: -a rad new owner with summer adventure plans -forward cabin light fuse was slow-drawing on the battery: bypassed (fuse removed), but not fixed -stereo repair (audio shop is in Vancouver) -new tags (WA registration expired in May 2020) -windshield is cracked, doesn’t affect visibility; replace if desired Ideas: -go play outside, whether you buy this van or not -candidate for semi-rowdy 4x4 conversion? -install solar! -chrome grill so they know you’re chill -dimensions are set up for another Dometic fridge under the bed (previous owner kept) -camper van rentals have taken off in the past few years. potential for passive income when not in use. I didn’t list all of the upgrades or their costs (there are more); the included stack of paperwork reflects the van’s condition, maintenance, and repair. $8000 OBO 541.727.1110
