The famed 1968 Volkswagen Minibus used by controversial Dr. Jack Kevorkian on assisted suicides with his patients is currently on a layaway plan at the American Jewelry & Loan in Souhfield, Mich.

Store owner Les Gold, one of the stars of the reality show “Hardcore Pawn” on truTV, told the Daily News he sold the vehicle to a Detroit area car dealer who plans to display it in his store.

The vehicle is currently in the back of his shop until the owner pays off the full sale price of $25,000.

Gold said the vehicle is an important part of the city’s history as Kevorkian — a crusader for assisted suicide — would use it when treating patients. Kevorkian died in 2011 at the age of 83 and served an eight-year sentence in prison.
