VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

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

New Paint (it was poorly repainted lacquer black by the previous owner), I had it disassembled; stripped; sanded and freshly painted British Racing Green including door jams (The engine compartment and trunk remain black lacquer). No rust, Bondo or Fillers.  Paint, although fresh, needs some minor touch-up and polishing. All new rubber gaskets on fenders. It was NOT a $16k Concours paint job, but entirely satisfactory for local shows and a car you will not suffer any angst parking at the grocery store.  A real head turner on the road.

New brakes and tires.  Vintage wire wheels (knockoffs are scuffed).

Instruments completely restored and rebuilt.  New correct Wiring Harness.  Bulbs replaced with LEDs. New Walnut Dash (not factory, but a common US Dealer add-on), Luggage rack, Fog Lights, and Badge Bar.  All new and correct English Leather interior and English Wool Carpets, and lap seat belts.

Strong Original Engine (130,125,125,130); Transmission; and Rear End, and a very smooth 4-speed transmission.  All new brakes.

History:  As best as I’ve been able to determine, it was delivered from the factory in light green and probably a dark green interior.  In storage for decades in California, it was auctioned out of storage and changed hands a couple of times neglected before it was acquired by the gentleman I purchased it from who started a ground up restoration.  He invested a lot mechanically, but lost enthusiasm when his paint guy failed him. 

Chrome in very great condition, save some scratches on the wind screen frame.

Convertible Top is not installed.  Original frame in perfect condition, and an older new “in the box” top.  No side curtains.  At the moment, this is truly a “fair weather” car, which was my intention.  The new owner could have the top easily installed and purchase side curtains from Moss Motors.

This is Not a Concourse restoration (otherwise, it would be priced at $75K).  My vision was a sunny Sunday afternoon car……perfect for road trips to the country, a vintage rally and Club meets. Great fun to drive.  Bad hips and inoperable back issues prevent me from driving this car and forcing me to sell it. 

Clean Oregon Title, and all records.  Includes Owners Manual, original Dealer Brochure, Repair Manual, and more plus extra parts.
