I wanted to share a few photos of a project that my father has been working on....it started life as a transporter and was shaped into what you see before you. my dad did all of the modifications himself as well as a subaru 6 cylinder conversion....enjoy the pics

Re: Vanagon transporter converted to truck (mr.cakes)

That thing is sweet as hell. It looks like it actually started as a Vanagon instead of a transporter. Was it a double cab? Any extension if the cab?

uhh.. he meant 7 pass vanagon (rather obvious
). some people refer to the vanagons or buses as "transporters" which is technically correct.
anyway that is totally cool...awesome job...and awesome welding skills!! i love how he shortened the sliding door to make the side door (it still slides??) and how he shortened the rear hatch..
your dad is a true master welder...

I just noticed...mirrors look suspiciously like those on my 08 Jeep JK. Nicely done, they look like they belong on a Vanagon.

Oh yeah, wheres the front turn signals located?

My guess in the main headlights - a closer look I see the bottom of the headlight is red/orange?

Does anyone know anything about the mirrors? I like them for a non powered mirror option.
