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
One of the best when we sold this to a doctor in Memphis four years ago, even better now (having just taken it in trade towards an AH 3000 Mk III). Excellent body, red paint, chassis, black interior, etc.
Rebuilt MGB engine (of little consequence 'for originality' other than it would take an expert to tell the difference), around 100hp, side draft 45DCOE Weber carb, headers, rebuilt Ford T9 five speed transmission (HUGE difference over 'stock' being all synchromesh, closer ratios, stronger, easier to shift, and.....fifth gear), rebuilt back axle with MGB 3.9 final drive (wonderful on the highway, even at 75, 85, or more mph), wire wheels, disc brakes (with new calipers), and..........
Went over the body with a small magnet, no sign or plastic filler, beautiful paint with a true mirror image reflection, mostly new chrome, excellent floors and chassis, tight steering, excellent ride, very good top and side curtains, new tonneau, all new interior (black with red piping), dash, gauges, switches, all in show condition, even the interior light works. Spotless engine bay, excellent wiring, new exhaust, new rubber light seals, an MG octagon ignition key, new seat belts, wood steering wheel, carpeted trunk compartment, the list is almost endless.
Starts 'on the button,' runs beautifully, hard to find fault. And with approximately the same horsepower as a late model MGA Twin Cam, with the excellence of the 5 speed, the higher gearing of the MGB diff, this is one fantastic MGA. NOT suggesting 'one of the world's best' but, in my opinion, how much better might one expect to find?
