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

We all love an entry-level classic like this 1961 Volkswagen Beetle. It has some of the earlier and desirable design features. And while this one already has upgrades, the price leaves room in the budget for you to do your own any time you want. The front fenders w/vents, big back window, small taillights, and W decklid are all part of the more vintage elements that help define the 61 Bug. From there this one has plenty of added details, like the updated blue paint, tinted windows, and aggressive forward-leaning stance. Plus, the upgraded bumpers and large 15-inch polished wheels make for a stand-out brightwork package. So this VW does a nice job of retaining the right vintage pieces while also having individual style. The same classic with upgrades attitude is continued inside. This one has been given more modern bucket seats up front, so you have good bolstering for all-day comfort. And the AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input is there for great driving music. But this still has the great vintage look of the classic-style dash and a single VDO gauge. Ahead of that is an upgraded three-spoke sports steering wheel with the proper Wolfsburg crest in the center. The Beetles flat-four motor is known for its robust constriction. These air-cooled motors are a big part of the VWs desirability. This one is stated to be a 1600cc unit, which is larger than what you got in 61. And not only does it have extra displacement, but also you have recent investment in newer components and a hearty set of dual carbs. It doesnt mean this is ready to win drag races, but you will certainly feel the extra pep in this enhanced Bug going down the road. And the four-speed manual transmission means the full control is firmly in your hands. Owning a Beetle is your ticket to one of the friendliest vintage car communities out there. Thats why its great to see a personalized one like this thats affordable to buy and easy to enjoy for years to come. Call today!!!
