2002 Ford Windstar LX With Less Than 3K Miles Up For Auction

For a very long time, automotive collectors and enthusiasts tended to gravitate toward vintage, collectible, or performance-focused vehicles. However, the times are certainly changing, and we’ve seen some very interesting and unconventional models pop up at auction in recent months – including a low-mile Taurus wagon, an Aerostar van, and even a Mercury Sable wagon. Now, that trend continues, as this 2002 Ford Windstar LX – a van that succeeded the Aerostar – is now up for grabs at Bring a Trailer with less than 3k miles on the clock.

This Ford Windstar has just 2,400 miles showing on the odometer, in fact, which is an incredibly low sum for any vehicle of this age – let alone a mainstream van designed to haul the family around. However, it seems as if the original owner purchased it only to use when their grandchildren were visiting, and they passed away shortly after buying the van. After that, the family kept it in the garage for a number of years before donating it to a charitable organization, which is now auctioning off the Windstar to benefit at-risk youth.

In any event, anyone looking for a low-mile, basically brand-new Ford Windstar certainly won’t do much better than this, as this Vibrant White van is in essentially perfect condition as it sits, aside from some blemishes on the rear bumper cover. The same goes for the Medium Graphite interior, which looks factory fresh and offers up amenities including dual-zone climate control, cruise control, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and power windows, door locks, and mirrors.

Power for this super sanitary van comes from the naturally-aspirated Ford 3.8L V6, which sends power to the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission, which was just treated to a new fuel pump module. Otherwise, there aren’t many bones to pick here, and we imagine that there has to be at least one Ford Windstar mega fan out there that’s been waiting for something like this to come along – or perhaps someone that just appreciates cool and quirky rides in general.

    As a retired Ford of Canada employee from the Oakville Assembly Complex, this vehicle gave us close to 10 years of OT work as it was a very popular minivan, selling well around the world. I don’t see many Windstars, or the replacement Freestar, on the road today.

    Thank God!

    Pure garbage. Worst Ford of the era, by far, saddled with that terrible engine and a weak transaxle. Why they didn’t use the Duratec 3.0 and AX4N I’ll never understand. Would’ve been so much better.

    As it stands, the last good car from Oakville Assembly was in built the spring of 1994.

    Does it come with a spare set of head gaskets?
    Do everyone a favor and crush it.
