1997 GMC Savana 3500 window van Description

we outgrew our van and bought a new van. So now we must part with our beloved van. We have owned this van for a little over eight years and is never left us stranded has been very reliable. We bought it from Virginia power company so it was fleet maintained, since then it has been meticulously maintained by myself, The van will come with all the maintenance receipts. When we bought the van it was a supervisors vehicle with a partition and ladder rack. I built out the van to serve three purposes. 1st) travel van for my family of five with a pull out bed and toilet. 2nd) 10 passenger vehicle for when our family comes to visit. 3rd) a quick removal of some of the seats and it becomes a daily driver work vehicle for my home remodeling business. This van is a one ton 3500 model with a turbo Diesel engine. The interior is ingood condition no stains. No dirt The drivers seat has a little ware on the edge but no holes, there's a small tear in the side of one of the back captain chairs, the van has front and rear AC and heat! tented windows with thick curtains. There is A few minor scratches and paint chips small area on the passenger side rocker panel underneath the slider door has rust holes but the underside has no rust The van is rarely driven in the snow, mostly due to the fact we don't get a lot of snow.The last four pictures shows the wooden box in three different configurations when the box is built to houses a standard Porta potty that is not included with the van, I made it so that when the backseat is installed the box can be folded up to provide legroom for an additional passenger. All the wood is oak including the ceiling there is a bottom panel missing from the inside of the sliding door. The van is also insulated walls and ceiling. The van gets just under 17 mpg at 70 to 75 mph. Pretty much gets 16 to 17 MPG no matter city or hwy. The sofa makes into a two person bed and also has a fold down center armrest, there is storage underneath the sofa

This is a list of all the small issues that the van has
  • Right at the end of this past summer the o-rings on the Freon hose that connects to the compressor started to leak easy cheap fix. (6yrs ago I replace the compressor do to clutch failure)
  • The fuel gauge has never worked from the day we bought it, I read years ago it was a common problem with these vans so not willing to replace with new for the problem to reoccur I never bothered fixing it just simply fill the tank every 300 -330 miles
