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
A fairly rare car, being one of 2771 Mk I Coupes built and very appealing for one who loves classics but doesn't necessarily enjoy top down motoring.
Long ownership history, plenty of work done over the years but never really restored. Body seems to be in very good condition, my kitchen magnet only found one small trace of plastic filler, paint appears to be old but suffers minimal issues and from even a few feet away looks very good.
All of the glass looks good as does the rubber seals and compression strips, chrome is very good and I suspect most has been replaced.
As a 1600, has disc brakes and they work well, also the very desirable wire wheel option. As is very common with MGAs, was changed (and upgraded) from the original 1600cc engine to a 1800cc MGB engine (but for a purist, we can offer the car's original engine). Runs very well, no smoke, 50 psi oil pressure, original MGA transmission works well, quiet in operation and with good synchromesh.
Glass and rubber seals are all very good, interior could use some sprucing up but is amply usable and the wood cockpit surrounds look to be in good condition.
The car runs and drives very well, can be enjoyed exactly as it is OR, over a period of time, improved moving towards show condition.
So if an Alfa or Porsche 356 Coupe is well beyond your budget, this car is certainly worth considering as MGAs offer ample performance (especially with this 90+ hp B engine), disc brakes, great ride, handling, steering, and are simple and easy to repair and/or service and maintain.
