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
Just in, a solid, very clean and VERY early MGB (one of the first 8,000 built, earliest B we have ever had), excellent body (no sign of rust, patching, or bondo), very good older red paint, all good or new chrome, wire wheels, very nice presentation.
Runs very well.....compression test was 145-150 psi in every cylinder, 70 psi oil pressure when warm, no smoke cold or hot, carbs seem to be in a good state of tune, very clean and nicely detailed engine bay, very good interior with black seats and red piping, carpets and panels in very good condition, same with convertible top and tonneau.
Has a nice, original banjo steering wheel, all gauges and electrics work, fitted with an optional oil cooler, we really didn't have to do much to this car other than a thorough overall check, but considering the age, this car must have led a charmed life.
The joy of the first generation of MGBs is hard to describe. In their day, 105 mph performance, disc brakes, unibody construction was all pretty advanced......Porsche didn't get disc brakes 'till 1964, Triumph still used old fashioned body on chassis through 1976, and while the later rubber bumper Bs might have seemed like a caricature by the last 1970s, remember, through the early and mid 1960s, MGB were competitive in their class at LeMans, Daytona, and other world class events.
Thus you wind up with a dandy classic car with good weather equipment, spirited performance, great ride, steering, and handling.
