    '85 Van LE Automatic 2wd in New York!

    Hey guys,

    150000 miles2wd
    Local pickup only


    We drove it out from California, but since then it's mostly just been driving a few miles to and from work.
    I'm sure you east coast TV fans know that there aren't many of these over here.
    Body is in great shape, no dents or rust.
    We bought it from the original owner! A lot of love has been put into this van.
    We have all of the seats, which aren't pictured here. They're in excellent condition, as is the rest of the interior.

    We've had a lot of fun in this van, but now it's time to move on. I had originally listed it at $5000. We bought it at a high price from the original owner and have put a lot into it. Typically it runs like a dream, gets excellent gas mileage, has been well maintained. Unfortunately, since listing it, something new has come up and I don't have the time or money to figure out what's going on. I'm flexible on the price since it will need some work.

    We're going to be garaging it for the winter, but I figured I'd post it now in case someone was looking for a project to keep them occupied through the cold months. Name:  70731401_2685229368175311_7839818356185104384_o.jpg

    I'm attaching a video here. What you see in it is new, something seems to be up with the tailpipe. I don't know if the noise has to do with the cold or other issues. It does seem to go away (or at least get better) when the van comes up to temp.

    Also, don't know if it's related or what, but it's losing coolant. I replaced a few hoses, but had a lot of trouble getting most of them so there are surely some old hoses in there. What is odd to me is that the coolant reservoir is fine, but it is continually low at the cap.

    Honestly these issues probably aren't much to somebody with more mechanical knowledge, but I really don't have the knowledge, time, or money needed to give this van what it deserves.
