Default 1999 Ram 1500 conversion van

Greetings All,
My parents are about to donate their owned since new 5.9L conversion van to a charitable cause. Showing I believe 106K on the gauge. Sadly, It traveled its last mile last year and literally fell apart in the driveway due to one of the "horns" that attach to the k member completely rusting away that hold the steering gearbox in place, rendering the vehicle basically as scrap. Its white over tan cloth and with the exception of the typical rust that plagues these vehicles is in exceptional condition. Interior-absolute mint #1. Drivetrain-solid and no problems ever out of the motor/trans/3rd member. Even the chrome wheels are in good shape. If anyone is interested in parts off this vehicle lmk as I'd rather see someone be able to use some of it rather than have it turned into a new KIA or whatever. Located Chicago Metro.
THANKS,
Chuck

wow, I may be able to use some or all....depends on where you are located. You mentioned salt rust so I'm guessing up north somewhere ! ☺
I'm in the Florida Panhandle, how far are you?

Sounds odd, but I need a small clip in the inside of the door....

When you are sitting in the passenger seat, and you pull on the door handle to get out, the linkage in the door ends up rotating a lever at the door latch.
The linkage has a hook on the end, and it goes thru a hole on the lever. The hook is held in place by a small clip.

Can you drop that clip in an envelope? Cost including shipping?

LedZep - I was surprised to find those clips on Amazon and eBay both (not just for my van but other vehicles). Most of the ones I have gotten from Bone yards are dried out and break like the original ones. Sometimes it is better to use the new ones! ☺

NVrag - was your parent's ride a 4 speed? Does it have an overdrive button to the left of the steering wheel?

I need that button. Mine went south

How is the driver seat condition? Is it made of cloth and has power? I could use a new driver seat in my van.

Like to see this go to someone intact but I'd be willing to help people out on parts if they need them message me if interested.

that's a very common place for them to rust out - the hood has no gasket on the sides and runs water down over the battery then to the frame below... It's not a very difficult area of the frame to repair though it there's good metal going both directions from there...
