1994 Aerostar extended
Low miles,but I'm not a fan of cargo vans.I tried one out once with low miles,but it didn't have a comfortable seat and drove differently altogether from my Eddie and my present one. That looks like the short version and 3.0 V6. don-ohio :)^)

Your post was moved into its own thread with a new title. How did you find an Aerostar with 80K miles? Post some pictures of it. Does it have a 3.0L or a 4.0L? Is it extended or a regular size? What about single or dual A/C?

i found a 80k mile 96 areostar extended 2 year ago at the dealer auction. i bought it for 800 and it blew up 80 miles later....catastrophic head gasket failure.... i scrapped it... .real shame cuz it was mint but it needed a motor and no one wanted it :(

Mine is a rusty relic, but I love ol'e Red! She was getting a fuel pump in the pic. Straps just crumbled when I removed the tank.

You have a very nice van. I have always loved that blue.

thats the color of mine except my running boards and lower body match your rear bumper.

If mine came with running boards, I'd never know if they were there! Eventually I will fix the rust and paint this van. The interior is perfect, not a tear or anything, except for one little spot in the headliner where the previous owner nicked it with an old wash machine as it was being loaded with junk to be scrapped, van included. The carpet is a little nasty, but just in the front. Not bad for $100.
