Nobody does it better… the 1988 Ford Aerostar

America’s best-selling mini-van

Your first look tells you Aerostar is a superbly versatile mini-van, with a style all its own. Its design is sleek, modern, aerodynamic. The wind works for it, not against it. With luxurious touches throughout and its special options, Ford Aerostar is America’s best-selling minivan.

New Eddie Bauer style

This year there’s a sporty Eddie Bauer model with dual front Captain’s Chairs, special two-tone paint, unique interior appointments, and more. It’s Aerostar with the good looks of the great outdoors!

Designed to move you

But Aerostar’s success isn’t based only on distinctive looks. Its standard 3.0L V-6 has multi-port Electronic Fuel Injection for easier starting and smooth running. It delivers a spirited 145 horsepower. That’s greater than any Chrysler mini-van. And it’s powerful enough to tow an impressive 4900 lbs.

Living room

Aerostar’s advanced styling gives you loads of useable space. It comfortably seats up to 7 people. Or remove both rear seats, and create 139 ct ft of cargo space. You can even convert Aerostar into a sleeper with the folding seat-bed option. All this in a mini-van that’s a breeze to handle and park, practically anywhere, even inside your garage.
