First of all, welcome to the community. I honestly believe you made the right choice joining us as this site is probably the one most useful resource for all owners of any Chrysler minivan, be it a brand-new Pacifica or a heavily modified 1st gen turbo.

Your dad has certainly picked up a specimen with quite the backstory and I'm sure he can make it all good to go again. That said, one thing I would recommend you to check out on a former police vehicle, especially an undercover unit, are the engine hours. You will do this using the EVIC (i.e. the little screen in the middle of the gauge cluster which I believe should exist in a GT). If you don't have that, I'm sure someone else can tell you how. The reason is that it most likely spent a lot of time idling, often for prolonged periods, so the 35k miles don't really mean anything in that case. A high hours reading would indicate that the van had worked quite hard in its past life.
