Hi all:

I'm selling my 1986 Dodge Caravan LE with powered gullwing door and powered bi-fold wheelchair ramp. I'm asking $3,500.00 for the van since it has a powered ramp, a lowered floor, a powered gullwing door, a manual swiveling driver's seat, and hand controls. The van itself isn't worth that much money.

This van is a rare classic. A piece of automotive history, a first generation Dodge Caravan LE. This van runs great, averages 17mpg and gets 19mpg on the freeway.

The engine is a 2.6 liter Mitsubishi four cylinder with a Weber 32/36 carburetor. The engine runs strong and the transmission has never given me any trouble.

Except for the headliner the interior of the van is in very good shape.

I bought this van in 2012. I've had a lot of fun with this van, it's small even by minivan standards and is a fun van to drive, but I have to sell it due to lack of space to park it.

Located in Southwest Washington about twenty-two miles north of Portland, OR
