This is a modern Brazilian VW kombi bus. Probably less than ten years old.

The floor frame is pretty straight behind the front wheels.

My understanding of the VW buses made in Brazil is that they have coolant running from the front black radiator back to the engine, they have a gear shift lever between the front seats that connects to a fairly small rigid rod that runs under the floor back to the transmission. Maybe if it is an automatic transmission, that's actually a wire and not a metal rod. Not sure. There are brake lines that go back there to the brakes, and if it's a manual transmission, there is a clutch cable running back to the clutch. Other than that, there is not much of importance under that floor.

Perhaps there was a minor field repair done to get it to run, or perhaps there just wasn't any damage to those under-floor systems.

Yes, good investigating glatt.
I wondered if the throttle cable or gear selector was jammed because in the GIF/Video he was moving pretty fast for the condition, although it may have been sped up. So if they replace that missing window and patch the side door, they can apply compressed air and it will pop back into shape.

This is what comes to mind every time the salesman asks me if I'd like to test drive the new Corvette.

At last, roadside relief for the ladies... maybe NSFW

Memo to all: when turning right on red, don't nudge forward into the shoulder lane of the passing traffic.
