Phil Hoken, 39, from Australia, buys old and rusty vans for a low price, fixes them up, and then sells them with a good margin. Look at the way he has turned an old Volkswagen Transporter Kombi van into a chic, retro-style motorhome.
Phil Hoken says that he bought a 1975 Volkswagen online for $5,000.
The restoration took seven months and cost about $30,000.
The van retained its retro look; a refrigerator, bed, stove, and other travel necessities were added.
The finished motorhome put up for sale online for $65,000. Just 17 hours after the ad was posted it was sold for $60,000.
Hoken has been fixing cars for 24 years. He started out as a teenager, under his father's supervision.
But he's only recently set up his own business restoring pre-owned motorhomes.
And this is his first project which is quite successful!
So the man decided to produce more vintage motorhomes based on the Volkswagen Kombi. It turns out that there are much more fans of retro than we think.
