I loved the body style.. was my favorite, when I started our new HVAC service division in 1994, the fleet director thought he would be sarcastic and give me the oldest van they had which was a 1988 extended length (the one that looked like it was added on to) ford cargo can with a 460 in it..
it was a Joke.. they had actually ordered me a brand new Van but didnt tell me..
I LOVED that old van.. it was a trooper.. had wickedly cold air-conditioning and power for days.. no cruise, manual windows and locks.. and a super cushy Cloth seat
needless to say someone else got the brand new van... I didnt like the dashboard, the engine, the seat, the radio or any of it.. I took it home one weekend to move my tools over to it.. didnt move my tools just drove it back to our shop , tossed the keys on manager's desk and said "i think gary wants a new van"...
they had to pry that old 88 out of my hands when it got old enough they had a strict policy of retirement... 10 years..
