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
The 3500GT debuted in 1957 as Maserati’s flagship Grand Tourer in direct competition of the Italian native, the Ferrari 250 California. The 3.5L twin-cam, twin-plug inline six was adopted from the 350S race car and produced 220-250 horsepower. The 3500GT Coupe and Spyder examples are mechanically almost identical, with a few key modifications to compensate for the lack of roof.
The 3500GT coupe examples quickly became renowned for their ‘Superleggera’ or superlight aluminium body. While Vignale Spyders feature a steel body and doors for added rigidity. The hood and trunk lids were made of aluminum to save weight where possible. The Spyder also featured a 4-inch shorter wheelbase than the coupe to improve handling.
The Spyder examples were not introduced until 1959; Alfredo VIgnale produced 242 examples in total. This brilliant silver example is equipped with Borrani wire wheels, front disc brakes, rear aluminum drums, a 5-Speed ZF Gearbox, and three Weber carburetors. The vibrant red leather interior features factory power windows, original Jaeger instruments and a period correct Blaupunkt stereo.
