Seller's Description

My wife and I purchased this van in 2020 when the pandemic started and put in 3k miles (current mileage at 191, 655). Purchased from a mechanic who put a ton of work into the van and we put in much more work, including new tires, shocks, alignment, brakes, fuel pump, etc. My wife is a Set Decorator who added many finishing touches to turn into the perfect 70s rock vibe and we call her “Ruby Tuesday.” (Needs new paint job but everything else is tip-top). Also added a great sounding Sony stereo system. Perfect van for beach trips or traveling the country.
