Rebuilt engine does not matter...they can be rebuilt for a few hundred dollars by just about anybody with a clymer manual and decent set of tools.
Regardless of the nostalgia value, they are not reliable and never will be no matter how much money you sink into it. If you purchase one of these vans with the idea of cruising across the country, make sure you are a good shade tree mechanic and can fix common mechanical problems. If not, buy a Honda and don't worry about it.
