1958 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon panel van

FOR SALE HERE is a 1958 vw type 2 "bus/ microbus" panel van body type. Desirable split window. This is a true barn find, sitting in the same spot since 1973. Pulled this out of the garage it had been sitting in and transported it to my place just last weekend.
As you can see based on the pictures it is in horrible condition, it is rotted and rusty, the front end seems to be in pretty good salvageable shape. There is no engine in it however the transaxle is present, no idea if it works but I'm sure it probably does.
All tires which have been flat since the 70s do somehow hold air, and this thing rolls really nice! Brakes don't work whatsoever.
Please look at the pictures or message me and set up a time to look at it.
There is no paperwork other than a bill of sale included with this bus.
Based on the VIN stamped on the engine firewall I have dated it as a 1958, the body number behind the seat I have read means basically nothing. However due to just a number stamped in the body and not a placard that puts it as pre october 1958, wheel size also confirms it is in this year range.
84878 miles on the five place odometer
Either use the parts on this thing or restore it (lots of work)
Dash is nice, whole front clip is pretty nice.
