Phil Hoken, 40, from New South Wales, bought what was remaining of this Volkswagen Kombi. The van was lying on its side, had no windows, lights, or interior, but Phil saw its potential. It took him ten months to restore the car and turn it into a great mobile home which he eventually sold for $149 thousand.

That's not worth $15,000. More like 3500.

Epsey,

The title says $149,000, not $15,000. Learn math in the USA did you?

I hope it has a good engine. When it was stock, it only went about 100km/h.

"restore".
That looks more like a "rebuild using a few of the original parts".
Ship of Theseus.
