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

Too late now, the VW Beetle has officially become a collectors item. After years of languishing on used car lots and in your neighbors back yard, cars like this clean little 1965 Volkswagen Beetle ragtop have crossed over and become beloved toys rather than mere transportation appliances. To be honest, the looks of the Beetle pretty much ensured that theyd always have a spot in our automotive hearts. Theyre still fun, reliable, inexpensive fun, but the numbers are on the move and taking this handsome restored example home can also be considered a good investment. Someone has already done all the hard work, so the body and paint are in very good shape and show no signs of ever having been anything but well-maintained. Silver paint gives the vintage VW an updated look, yet still lets the traditional Beetle shape do all the talking and theyve cleverly added an oval rear window that blends in seamlessly. Its got a cool resto-mod vibe. Panel fit, which was already quite good from the factory, remains excellent, with the doors sealing up like the proverbial vault. Early car styling cues such as the small taillights and flat windshield give it an early VW look, and with the roll-back sunroof, its a rare find thats ideal for sunny days. The black interior is very much the way the designers intended, and its possible that the seat upholstery is original. Basic black always works well, and it includes matching door panels and carpets, plus a custom package shelf behind the rear seat with a pair of speakers and a gray tweed headliner. The color-matched dashboard adds a sense of style to the all-business interior, and the single round speedometer with integral fuel level gauge shows crisp markings. The custom steering wheel makes it easy to maneuver the manual-steering-only Beetle, even in tight spots, and the four-speed shifter falls to hand easily where youll quickly master its quirky feel. An AM/FM/CD stereo below the dash sounds great and allowed the very cool original dash to remain untouched. The overall look is warm and inviting with just enough wear on the seats to prove that its been used as intended. The front trunk is lined in black carpet for a finished look. After an extensive round of upgrades, this Bug now carries a 1600 cc flat-four from a 1970 Beetle, which delivers a bit more horsepower and torque to help this car cope with American driving styles. Of course, like all Beetles, this one starts easily and will probably run forever with that traditional air-cooled VW sound, and the engine bay shows signs of regular maintenance in the years since it was completed. A small air cleaner feeds the single carburetor, theres a new set of ignition components, and all the heater ducting is still in place, which is more proof of conscientious ownership. Underneath, its reasonably tidy, but its also completely original and with that in mind, there are no signs of trouble in the usual spots. The heater boxes are solid, the pans are clean, and the area under the rear seat is solid. Polished aluminum wheels have a Torque Thrust look, and work well with the staggered 145R15 front and 205/70/15 radials, which give it a bit of a rake. The same reasons Beetles were popular when new make them popular today, but something with this much cool was never a factory offering. Call today!
