1985 Ford E-Series VanOffered today for all of our Classic "VAN FANS" out there, we have found another once in a lifetime Corrosion FREE Desert Classic!
Please do not ask about rust, we know its hard to believe but Arizona vehicles rarely see rain and nearly no humidity in the Sonoran Desert. You could look for many years and not find a van body from 1985 in this kind of shape.. (See Pics or ask for videos:)
This van has been in the Tucson region most if not all of its life, and it clearly has been garaged most of that time. To our complete shock the dash has remained covered for over 30 years leaving it fresh and new under the cover! (SEE PICS). This E-250 is equipped with a 5.0 Litre V8, and it is one of the first one of its kind with an amazing new technology called "Overdrive"!! It even has a fancy rear emblem to boast of the achievement! (And it was in 1985)
The originality of this van is exceptional. This does not mean perfec, and does not mean restored, just a true barn find! The interior smells like a cedar cabinet and reminds me of the Sauna room after a long day of hitting the Colorado Slopes back in "85"!! The nostalgia value on this van is very high so we left it just as it was found, and all the restoration of lack thereof will be up to the winning bidder.
We will be including all of the Original Manual, BOOKS, and Guides as shown in the Pictures. Please forward this auction to your Van Collector pals, as we believe this is a very difficult vehicle to replicate, especially as a NO RESERVE!
The underside is very clea, and the entire exhaust system is either perfect since new, or is 100% replaced and new. No annoying rattles, the van drives very solid. No overheating even in the summers!
Known issues are as follows, but not limited to:
Fridge door is affixe, but is broken. Unhinged.. Needs work or replacement.
Interior is all original. Some curtains very sun worn, however one drawer seems to house some extra material and or curtains. (see pics)
Dual fuel tanks wor, gauges do not always work accurately.
Drivers side rear side marker lens missing, however we have ordered an OEM Replacement to go with the van! Also one brake light lens has a small hole.
Chrome wheel for left front is missing, the spare is currently on. We are trying to track down the matching whee, but no promises.
Miles are showing 60,659 on a 5 digit odometer. Unverifiable miles. (box B) Exceeds mechanical limits.
Bid to Win. Thanks for the Views and Bids!
