What Am I? Cyber Monday

It is Cyber Monday, so that means time for another edition of DT's favorite guessing game, also known as What Am I?   Today's featured photo comes from K2 Mystery Car who sent us a batch of "the good stuff," and this is another good one. 


What car are we looking at?  Comments below.

  1. I dunno what it is, but it sure looks to me like the angle on that gas strut would not work very well. I look forward to hearing the answer, so I can figure out the geometry.

    1. Looks close, but the edge of the door and shape of the strut look wrong:

      Angle 1

      Angle 2

      I don't have a guess yet...

    2. Hmmmmm, your strut argument is persuasive -- I hadn't properly accounted for Girth in my calculations.

      That said, I think the photo is cropped to make it appear to be a split tailgate, but I since the v-dub tail notches in above the tail lights the cropping makes it appear we are looking at the whole tailgate. I think visual subterfuge is being employed!

  3. It is a DoubleBack camper conversion for a VW Transporter.
