This Van has basically had two owners. The initial owner purchased the Van in '86 from a dealership in Ventura, still have the window sticker, then moved to Azusa where it is very dry. There is absolutely no rust on the frame beneath this vehicle. He put 105,000 miles on the van then had some engine trouble and it sat for several months. He sold it to someone who wanted a "project" but never got it running, gave up and that's when I bought it in 2008.
Eurotech in San Diego did the ’94 SVX 3.3L conversion. The motor was purchased from Small Car Performance in Washington. I’ve put about 35,000 miles on the van since I’ve had it for a total of 140,000 miles on the van. There are a couple little rust spots now around the front and back windows.
The motor is super strong and runs great. There’s a dvd player attached to the headliner to watch movies while in the back and the stereo deck has a flip screen to also watch movies in the front. Different movies can be played on the front and back simultaneously. There are headphones for the drop down dvd player. When my son was small this was handy as he could watch a movie with the headphones on and I could listen to music over the speakers. The electronic setup is pretty cool. The stereo is Sirius satellite enabled and simply needs to be reactivated. This stereo deck also has navigation which was awesome 10 years ago but not needed so much now with map apps on your phone. There is an auxiliary battery to switch the power functions to when stopped so as not to drain the main battery. I took the 4x4 stickers off the doors because I was camping in Baja a lot and didn’t want to advertise that this van was a syncro.
I’ve owned Westy’s before with stock motors and I’ve driven the 2.1 and 2.5 conversions. The 3.3L blows them away. So easy to get to speed on the freeway and navigate traffic. At first you’ll want to drive it around like it’s a race car because it sounds and accelerates like one:-)
