If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Just a typical combination of 'the good, the bad, and the ugly.'
Chassis appears to be in excellent condition as is the body....went over the exterior with my trusty kitchen magnet, stuck everywhere. And believe me, finding a 70+ year old MG with no bondo is cause for celebration. Paint is quite good and no signs of cracking or bubbling.
Last owner, a college professor, owned the car for 45 years, just for Summer puttering around campus probably using it as an alternative to a golf cart. His term for the original seats were 'back assassins' and he (temporarily replaced them with MGB seats, not even bolted in).....we have the original seat back and the remains of the bottoms. Currently lying in the interior and not looking all that bad.
Runs very well, no smoke, excellent oil pressure, 140-147 psi compression in every cylinder, excellent gearbox. Brakes work well, top frame is there with what appears to be a new top, has side curtains (in good condition), wood dash appears to have been restored, grille shell is good, a mix of ups and down. BUT an ideal candidate for a through reconditioning without getting into an expensive and time consuming 'restoration.'
Think how nice this car would be with, as an example, a new tan interior, BRG exterior paint, engine bay detailing work, odds and ends........... And with such a reasonable starting point, it allows for a potential buyer to wind up with a beautiful, rust and plastic filler free MG TC.
And the best virtues of a TC are a true prep war experience with modern advantages as a synchromesh transmission, press fit bearings, plentiful supply of new reproduction parts, a strong club experience, and those great looks. Hard to beat the TC's aesthetics.
Just in, being cleaned up, available for immediate sale And, needless to say, we can do anything a prospective buyer wishes and with surprisingly little work, provide a very nice MG TC.
