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

This fun little runabout is a blast to drive!  It features a 4-cylinder dual carb engine and a 4-speed manual transmission.  The car has been in my family since my father bought it in 1966.  It was restored after a long period of non-use using some parts from a 1961 Sprite.  For example, you can see this in the gauges as one is white when the others are black.  The car runs great and looks good, but you aren't going to take this car straight from my driveway to a car show.  Significant brake work was done by British Motor Care of Portland, OR in 2016, but other systems could probably use some TLC.  Some of the gauges are not functional and the odometer is not accurate.

The car comes with a lot of extra parts as shown in the photos, including another engine, drive shaft, headlights, tire rim and others.  This would be a great car for someone who wants a car that can be driven now but can still be improved and increased in value with some elbow grease.
