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
Original California Car with original Black California license plates and only one owner since 1965. It’s pretty hard to improve on that history. This car has just come out of a longterm storage although according to the seller it was started on a very regular basis and driven a few miles at a time. When it came out of storage it was trucked to re-nouned Porsche Specialist Marc Bixen’s Red Line Services for a thorough service. Almost
$ 6,000.00 later the car was finished as is ready to be used and enjoyed.
Have an appraisal available from 2017 for interested buyers.
Red Line changed all the brake hoses, wheel cylinders and the brake master cylinder and reservoir. The brakes and valves are adjusted and the carbs resealed. Fuel was drained from the tank and lines and the same was done with break fluid and lines.
The car comes with its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity showing production was completed November 26, 1962. It also shows the car is still finished in its original colour combination.
Optional equipment on the car included Ventilated Chrome Wheels, Exterior Mirror, Blaupunkt Berlin Radio, 2 Loud Speakers, Antenna, Hubcaps with Crest and Conti Tyres were fitted. The car still has the original outside mirrors and Blaupunkt radio. It also has a period correct Nardi Wood rim steering wheel.
Wheels are date coded showing 3 with 7/62 date and 1 10/62 which is in keeping with the production date of the car. The engine and transmission show the same numbers that appear on the Certificate of Authenticity
A little Porsche trivia, the license plate on Janis Joplin’s 356 Cabriolet was VAN990, this car wears VAN930 which would indicate they were licensed probably on the same day at the same Department of Motor Vehicles office in California.
This is not a restored car but one that is an original example although re-painted many years ago. A replacement convertible top has been fitted some time ago as well. The mileage indicated of 71,125 is believed to be a pretty accurate account. Pride of ownership is evident as it still shows really well. Finished in a special order colour Porcelain White(#6220) with Black interior and top.
