Failing marks on engine from Canada and worse from body manufactured in Detroit...a pig that had dual gas tanks, neither worked correct on gages. God help you if one did not know to route vacuum lines that collapsed or rotted and disappeared into the ether. Carry spare lines if you want a 7mpg roar to shift into 3rd ridiculous tall gear.
Ironically, the name of this van came from one in the 60's that was bulletproof. While I was in high school, I drove one for a grocery store to deliver anything from one pound of groceries to 500 pounds of cattle feed out in the boonies. It was basically a Ford falcon in a box with 1 "straight-6" and no amenities at all, not even windows other than the windshield and windows in the two front doors. It was driven by several crazed teenagers for hundreds of thousands of miles on unchanged oil for years with bald tires and drum brakes in extreme heat and cold. It was an ugly, horrible beast that refused to die and I don't remember a single mechanical or electrical repair ever being done to it. The last time I saw it, is was still in service and looked like it had been in several "demolition derbies". Looking back, it would have made a perfect college vehicle for me. Instead, I chose an MG....really?
