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

1958 MG MGA Roadster For consignment, a restored in the 1990s small cruiser with its British Motor Industry Trust certificate, workshop manual, and a phonebooks worth of restoration receipts and photos, all in 1958 MGA roadster form. All correct on the chrome and body front, coming with its side curtains, a nice convertible top, a wonderfully tasteful interior black coloring accenting the classic British Racing Green color change exterior, and 1958 never looked so good! Exterior The MGA was a big step forward for the British automaker and somewhat shocking to MG fans around the globe. Our example, the second to last year for the MGA 1500, continued to stun crowds with its persuasive yet delicate flowing lines all bathed in a nicely applied color change application of British Racing Green that is showing well to this day with a few stone chips, scuffs, and scrapes. Starting up front with the raked back waterfall style grille which melts its way into the rounded peak fenders with their chrome bezel headlights we are in late 50s English bliss. Just below this steel and chrome artwork is a clean bumper with added bumperettes. Moving down the sides, a swooping body line melts into the highly arched rear fenders creating a soft Vee shape that keeps eyes drawn and hearts pounding. These sides, devoid of all chrome and trimmings save for the front quarter top venting, achieve artistic perfection with the sculpted lines as they frame the restored gray drilled wheels and blackwall rubber in 15-inch format. A black vinyl top with clear plastic windows and additional side curtains are present and accounted for in case you hit a spot of inclement weather. We do note areas of tearing in the top, but they are slight and do not require a full top replacement at this point. On the back is the rear curved bumper stretching from fender to fender with its near perfect bumperettes, oval tail lights, and chrome MG badge gracing the trunk lid. Interior Reaching in and pulling the door release strap we are greeted with a bit of unexpected niceties in the form of black leather tuck and roll low back bomber style bucket seats with a hint of wrinkling to the upholstery and the handbrake tucked neatly between the passengers seat and thickly padded center hump. An oak eyebrow curved dash, also draped in black sports a litany of gauges which pepper a black leather curved panel along with the heater controls, and MG badge over wood in front of the passenger. Our consignor notes that the original metal dash face plate is included with your purchase. This is fronted by a black rimmed banjo style 4 spoke steering wheel. Black leather covers the simple small doors, and each offers up some pouch storage and the chromed retainers for the side curtains. Deep black carpeting with very little wear floods the floors and a rear storage area all looking so inviting and beckoning me to feel its softness. Drivetrain A flip of the long swooping hood reveals a nicely restored 4-cylinder red painted engine block in rebuilt 1489cc configuration. This mill is fed by 2 SUs which are semi downdraft carburetors. There is a 4-speed manual transmission attached to the back and a 4.30 rear axle way in back. The engine bay is very well done with just a light dust coating of patina. Undercarriage All straight structural steel is underneath and makes up a clean undercarriage displaying just minor road dirt, patina and some surface rust. The wood floor pans are strong and solid with black paint applied, meanwhile the side rockers and unibody are nearly like new, but we note a few amateur welded in repairs on the rear of the rockers. For the suspension, independent coil springs are up front, and leaf springs for the back and drum brakes front and rear are on for the whoa factor. Drive-Ability I never miss a chance to pilot a British sports car and this one spoke to me dearly as its the fourth of its kind to ever grace our Hallowed Halls. A quick starter from the starter pull, and after a nice warmup it ran incredibly smoothly and had great snappy pickup. It handled well and just the open road feel of this car is worth the price of admission. All was working swimmingly and my suspicions were correct, the deep plush black carpeting felt wonderful. An older restoration job holding up just well today, this car presents in nice shape as a driver, but with some very minor work can be taken to the next level and be a top flite show winner. It has a beautiful look with the classic racing green paint, and black vinyl top with the luxurious black hued leather interior. Mechanically it is sound, and we are talking about a Brit from 1958, priced very fair for todays market. So leave the cell phone at home, send the kids to the neighbors and spend some much needed time in your own get-away car.
