For sale is our 1997 Ford Aerostar XLT Extended Van. Perfect for carrying boards n' poles alike. This baby has been in our family for 22 years and has served us well. However, it needs a good bit of regular maintenance and ultimately should go to someone interested in its upkeep, or even complete restoration. Full details are as follows: Original Owner - Original Title - Original Paperwork Included ... 205,000+ Miles ... 4.0L EFI V6 Engine ... Oil Changed every 5000 miles - never missed ... Towing Package - Transmission cooler - Tows great - 1 ¼" x 1 ¼" Trailer Hitch Receiver (includes 2 tow bars with balls - 1 7/8" and 2") and 4 pin electric connector. Have hauled a trailer and boat successfully in the past ... 7 Passenger Seating with seat covers and center console between front seats ... Original Floor Mats ... Moon Hubcaps (though original hubcaps included) ... 20,000 miles on current tires ... 40,000 miles on current plugs/wires ... 2nd and 3rd row seats can be totally removed and used as a cargo van ... Recent Maintenance: March 2016 - New Radiator and Hoses ... July 2015 - "Gator Blue" with Orange Stripes Paint Job (ok, maybe "Smurf Blue") ... Dec 2014 - New Front Pads, Calipers, and Brake Flush ... Other routine replacements over the years ... Things That Definitely Work: Brakes, including Emergency Brakes ... Power Steering ... AM/FM/Cassette Radio ... Engine runs well - has been driven at 70+ MPH recently ... Cruise Control ... AM/FM Radio ... Power Locks ... Air Conditioning (Less vent control, see below) ... All Dashboard Gauges ... Interior Lights ... Flashers ... Things That Definitely Don't Work/Are Broken: A/C- it works, but all the cool air is sent to the windshield vents ... Bumpers ... Front Right Headlight - taped in place, but works ... Right Rear Gate Lift Broken - Ball broken from interior frame ... Power Windows are functional, however driver's window not completely functional - needs regulator (at a minimum) - but will fully open and close with manual assistance ... Tie rod noise ... Small Oil Leak ... Small Coolant leak (not radiator) ... Right Passenger auto door lock intermittent ... Wipers work but require "touch" of left/right hand signal ... 12V cigarette lighter sockets do not work ... Air Intake "hums" ... Windshield Water Sprayer ... Air Bag warning Light blinks off and on ... Headliner (overhead felt material) is coming off the ceiling in the back. *** If you live beachside, this'll definitely get you back and forth to the breakers! $1000 OBO, located in Rockledge. Please PM if interested. Thanks! ***

Dude- that's a $200 piece o'shit! Never tell people how much towing, and how hard a'shit it can do because you pushed it to. Rewrite this minus anything hard you've done with it, mentioning only what a creampuff it is, take this ad off here, put the new shorter version on craigslist for like $800 and take --- you're welcome brah!

Many thanks for your kind suggestions Bev, although they would have been far more appropriate by PM. As stated in my original post, the engine is still running strong (even at 70+ mph), all seats are still intact, AC still blows cold, and the thing still tows strong.. so not sure your categorization of a "piece o'shit" is accurately fitting. But, I suffice to say that everyone is entitled to their (uninformed) opinion. For all other interested parties: price drop to $1000 and I'm more than happy to negotiate.

Thanks for your support, Pakalolo. I too expect better from our easy-going beachside community! Still available, very flexible for offers.
