1956 Austin-Healey 100M
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
My own car, have had it for 25+ years. Fabulous example, stripped to bare metal, high quality paint, leather seats, Wilton wool carpets, chrome wire wheel, stayfast cloth top and side curtains, Everflex tonneau, new cloth covered wiring harness. around 3,000 miles on rebuilt original engine....milled head, lightened flywheel, Derringtron SS headers and exhaust.....heavy duty sway bar, rebuilt high performance valved shocks. Handling, ride, and steering are superb.
Stereo/CD under dash, CD changer behind dash, twin fuel pumps, electronic ignition, flawless reliability, overdrive works perfectly, 90 psi oil pressure when warm, zero smoke cold or hot, perfect compression, excellent synchromesh, all gauges and electrics work fine, same with heater, absolutely solid, would be able to drive cross country. Effortlessly. And in great style.
One alteration from stock/original.....past owner fitted 3000 Mk I disc brakes and servo unit. Clearly an error for the purist but this car has EXCELLENT brakes. (and easily switched back to original) Hence my decision to leave well alone for the past twenty five years.
Has not been on the market for a quarter century. And time for it to go to someone else?
