Have a chance to buy a 1995 T&C van. it actually has a lot more than I
need, since I am going to use it to carry guitars, amps and a PA system
The good things:
The body is in good shape, just starting to turn 'brown' in sopts
underneath, but no real rust or holes anywhere.
Doors all work properly, leather seats in fiar shape, no cracks or splits.
Starts readily. Has what sounds like chain noise that goes away in a few
Clunk going into reverse. Reverse only. Gear transitions are smooth. Going
from Park to drive OK, going from ANY gear or neutral to revcerse and
there is a clunk, seems to be driver's side front (right where the tranny
Rear end feels loose. Lots of clunking from the rear, and a slight shudder.
Everything looks OK, no cracks in the springs, no loose mountings, etc.
Shocks seem bad, and perhaps wheel bearings?
ABS light on. Brake light on. HARD brakes; you really have to stand on it
to get it to stop.
Listed at $1495(RIGHT!) - $500=$995.
I offered $400, they countered with $700. I would go maybe $600 depending
on these problems. The brakes seem the scariest, obviously.
