Quadvan is pretty well known and respected in the Pacific Northwest. We see their work on Vans for sale in classifieds sources in the Seattle, Portland, and Vancouver BC area (Primarily Craigslist and Auto Trader).
The original designer of the QuadVan 4wd system, John McKee, has been installing QuadVan 4WD Conversion Systems for over ten years. He developed the QuadVan 4WD system out of a personal necessity for a 4WD van with all of the characteristics found in a 2WD van. He recognized that by keeping with original Ford parts he could maintain Ford’s factory warranty and that the 4×4 Vans would be 100% serviceable through Ford Dealer Service Departments, or any private auto repair facility. From the beginning and continuing through now, our 4×4 Conversions have utilized all original, over the counter available, unmodified Ford parts.
Our original conversion product included our proprietary IFS (Independent Front Suspension) Systems. Although the IFS System is no longer being manufactured, it is part of the foundation our reputation is built on as it thoroughly met the needs of so many enthusiasts, and also served the commercial and industrial requirements for 4×4 Vans.
Despite the economy over the past couple of years, we continue to grow. Our product line has continually improved and has now reached a plateau of near perfection. With the facelift in the 09 Ford models, the product line drive train looks set to be fairly well standardized for the next decade. With the quality, safety and ruggedness of the 09 & Newer F-Series Solid Axle Front Suspension our conversions will remain relevant and required for years to come.

More Than 35 Years of Making the Impassible Possible
Quigley Motor Company, located in Manchester PA, is the oldest, largest and most successful manufacturer of high quality four-wheel-drive conversions for full sized vans and "cut-aways" in the world. It has sold over 15,000 of its unique four-wheel drive systems for vans. Quigley also manufactures and installs right-hand drive conversion systems for full size vans.
When William "Bill" Quigley opened for business in 1966, his primary source of income came from new and used truck sales and rentals. As his reputation and business began to grow in the early 1970s, he began to sell recreational vehicles, too.
Initially, the lion's share of Quigley's business was with the non-commercial buyer; the outdoor sportsman, the boater and the weekend car racer. But soon the virtues of the Quigley product line became known to a new buyer: The commercial and ambulance markets. In addition to providing 4x4 systems on platforms for ambulances and mobile telecommunications trucks, Quigley has also provided vehicles to some of the most famous names in American business: Fed-Ex, AT&T and Halliburton Service Corporation. There are also Quigley "Quadra-Version" vans serving with the ATF , Secret Service and U.S. Military. You will also find Quigley 4x4 vans in the Arctic and Antarctica.
In the 90's Quigley Motor Company has continued its transformation from a small "car lot" into a vehicle manufacturer with global sales and world class capabilities. And the capabilities of Quigley's "Quadra-Version" system on a full-sized van positions the Quigley as the SUV of choice for all seasons and all terrains.
The "Quadra-Version" conversion, however, is only part of the Quigley story. In the late 1980's Quigley again pioneered an un-tapped market segment, creating right-hand drive for Chevrolet and GMC trucks, including the Suburban and Tahoe vehicles. General Motors trucks and SUV's equipped with Quigley's right-hand drive conversion have attracted customers in the United Kingdom, Africa and the Far East.
Today, Quigley Motor Company is an approved up-fitter for General Motors and is also a fully approved Ford Motor Company ship-thru account and benefits from access to the Ford, and General Motors shipping and distribution network. In fact, the Quigley "Quadra-Version" system can be ordered through any authorized Chevrolet, GMC or Ford dealer in the United States.
For the new millennium Quigley Motor Company has once again shown its leadership with its development of new 4x4 systems.
In 2001 came the first "Trailmaker" Torsion Bar Independent Front Suspension (IFS) system for the full size Chevrolet/GMC vans. This new IFS suspension, while providing the off road capabilities, has also made Quigley Motor Company famous providing the added benefit of no increase in vehicle height, improved road manners, better ride and handling characteristics and lower center of gravity. In 2002 Quigley Motor Company also designed the first 4x4 system for Fords new E-550 cutaway chassis.
Located in a new 72,000 square foot facility in Manchester Pennsylvania, the members of the Quigley team are aggressively positioning themselves for the move into the 21st century with two high quality, real-world proven product lines: The Quigley 4x4 "Quadra-Version" conversion and the Quigley right-hand drive conversion.
The Quigley story evolved from a mindset geared to trucks, new inventions and a sense of adventure. When you mix these ideas together you get exciting new creations. Since the mid 1960's Quigley Motors has been refining its craft. First selling trucks and vans, then customizing them and beginning in 1974, building a new type of vehicle - the Quigley 4-wheel drive van. Quigleys grew the business by satisfying its customers with its go-anywhere 4x4 system while establishing a close working relationship with Ford and GM dealerships nationwide to sell and to service Quigley 4-wheel drive vehicles.
