We love the ad text (below), as the seller includes a bid for labor in exchange for the van:
"Pull the transaxle for me and you can take the whole thing for parts or make a truck out of it."
And, only in the final line is the van's current state mentioned:
"And the back has been cut to start a truck conversion."

Someone with a project van might find plenty of good, used parts here, but don't expect like-new condition.
It looks like someone tried to separate the "cab" from the "bed" - possibly with canvas. We're not sure whether that sliding door still slides.
Front end just shows a tired, faded Vanagon in need of love.
And...here's more of the handiwork. We're not sure how (or whether) the "converter" intended to finish it out, but it does look like hinges were welded onto what's left of the hatch to make it swing open.

Pull the transaxle for me and you can take the whole thing for parts or make a truck out of it.
I just need the transaxle.
It doesn't have any paperwork.
It owes $665 in back registration as of last week.
And the back has been cut to start a truck conversion.
