NOTES: Even though this has been a well maintained vehicle for the last 30 years, it is 41 years old and therefore will not have any guarantees, warrantees, refunds, (written or implied),or buyer's remorse change of heart notions after the initial sale,and it will be understood by any given purchaser to be "AS IS". I know MUCH about this van since I have turned and/or replaced almost every nut, bolt, and part in it personally and will disclose everything that I am aware of that I may not have mentioned above. I'm more than willing to answer any and all questions. Mileages vary on the body, engine, and transmission. Easier to explain than include. Local pickup only.
