Default 1981 VW Vanagon Last of the Air Cooled

I never thought I sell this but I am going too.

Its a 81 Vanagon Air Cooled Rear Engine RWD. Last year VW sold them with the Air Cooled motor, Mid year they switch them to water cooled and the VIN shows it was made durning last few months of the Air Cooled Vans.
It will need a motor and trans. I have 80 to 90% of the stuff for it.
I have a core motor the could be rebuild but would be a good core. It is an Auto and will need a rebuild as it has been sitting for over 12 years. I have all the glass and rubber seals for the windows. Front windshield is broke. Had new tire but they are dry rotting in the treads now.
I have all the interior panels as well. Head liner is junk. A damn coon got it and ripped it up.
It has Brand new never been on the road Brakes as well. We put all new bearings, rotors, pads, calipers, Drums, Hardware, shoes and wheel cylinders on this about 8 years ago as well.
It is Bright Yellow and was painted 10 years ago all the body work was done than as well. Still look great to this day.

This would make a great Father and Son Restoration project OR a Kick ass Mid Engine Drag Van OR put it on a Lengthened Jeep Frame, Mid engine it and Have a Very Unique Bogger.

I will get pics ASAP for it.

Looking at 600 obo for all of it. I do have the title in hand.

How small is the van ? I've been looking at those japanese mini vans that you can get for off road use and thought that one would make a great trail only rig. Small size + less weight = less fuel burned on the trail & by your tow vehicle. It just might make a cool and economical project.
