"Well its a full-size van, so its not fast nor does it handle great. But the 360 V8 gets worked hard and does not die. There are periods of electrical difficulties, which are often easy remedied. I get 19-20 mpg empty and 14-15mpg loaded and with a trailer, towed more weight then I should with it numerous times and handled it with ease and the brakes kept right up. The seat is super comfortable for long trips and all the controls are easy to reach. Great workhorse that's cheaper then a pickup and is way tougher then any other full-size van I've had."
"This van is on it's way to surpassing the longevity and performance of my previous 1973 dodge van that I drove for 350,000 miles with the very minimum amount of trouble and repairs. As I'm semi-retired now it mostly sits idle in my backyard for sometimes as much as 6 months at a time. It never fails to start right up and runs like a thorough bred stallion when I need it. Tons of power,very comfortable, easy to repair and not bad mileage. They don't make them like this anymore."
Pros: "Recommended highly for work or spare vehicle."
Cons: "You won't want to take out your date in this van."

"I am selling this for a disabled friend who is no longer able to drive. He was in auto repair business. I have started and driven this B150 van. It was a conversion from Florida but spent many winters in Cleveland. The body needs attention but all the running gear is most satisfactory. If you are a roofer, in construction, need a bad weather or a spare multi-purpose vehicle, this van will serve you well. My friend hopes to get $1200 for this vehicle; he will take offers. It has a standard wheel base, 360 cu in V-8, 3-speed automatic transmission. The transmission oil stays clean and smells unburned; the engine oil is also clean, the engine does not smoke. There are no leaks of any significance; the battery seems to be in top condition. The van started right up after sitting since early January of this year"
"Bought new and had a high top conversion applied.
The base vehicle has been good overall Some regular problems with AC fan switch (regularly fails) and the electronic speed sensor witch has failled three times. New Transmission at 150,000. Engine is a solid work horse but puts lots of stress on cooling system, I'm on my 3rd radiator,
I'm plsnning on keeping for another 100,000 with a new rebuild on the conversion."
