An old rusty van which was rescued from an Australian farm in exchange for two cartons of beer has been transformed into a motorhome worth $149,000.
Phil Hoken, 40, who has worked as a mechanic for 24 years, purchased what was remaining of the Volkswagen kombi servisi van.
While the van had been tipped on its side and didn’t have any windows, lights or interior, Kombi Servisi Phil was eager to restore it and saw its potential.
Phil told Daily Mail Australia the restoration took 10 months to complete and he sold it for $149,000.
