1982 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon

Looking to sell my 1982 diesel vanagon truck project.This would be a great parts van if you are doing a diesel conversion or you could turn it into a unique shop truck/farm truck. I have the title from the previous owner and will provide a bill of sale.
It is a Factory diesel with the 1.6 n/a engine, 4 speed manual. Runs and drives but needs lots of work to be back on the road. This is NOT a road worthy vehicle and must be towed home.
Recently replaced glow plugs, fuel filter, and drained the fuel tank. Recently ran some injector cleaner through the fuel system and raised the fuel pressure slightly- engine runs much better, found out front brakes were also sticking slowing the van down.
Other known Issues that need to be inspected/addressed
Divers side door latch needs adjusted or replaced. It does not stay closed.
Sliding door needs aligned and roller bearings cleaned or replaced. Needs new handle-(missing)
Radiator and lower grill are damaged and need replaced. (radiator might be repairable)
Front brakes are sticking- could be the old brake lines, I cleaned the calipers.
Rear brakes need attention.
Battery has been relocated to the storage area below the truck bed.
There is some rust, mainly in the truck bed from sitting water. The front cab has good panels to repair rust or body damage on another van.
Gearbox is good, but the shifter linkage needs new bushings-1st and neutral are a challenge to find. All gears work without any grinding.
Wipers, blower, odometer, clock not operational at the moment. 122 or 124k miles on odometer (not sure how close that is to the actual) Speedometer was tested on another van and works (either the cable or hub need replaced on this van)Damaged Drivers door mirror, missing passenger door mirror.
This van also has brown seats from an 84/85 with armrests (nice for long drives) (one seat rest not pictured, but included)
Serious buyers are welcome to take a look in person- please send me a message if interested. Sold AS-IS. I prefer to sell complete, but if there is enough interest in parts I will consider parting out.
