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
This car was purchased in
1992 by the previous owner, who added it to his car collection. He restored the
car and overhauled the engine in 1994, at which time the odometer registered
8,775 miles. When I purchased the car in 2014 the odometer registered 15,162,
which indicates that the car was driven an average of only 340 miles per year
for 24 years. This is understandable since it was part of a collection. It has
a Production Record Trace Certificate (Number 92-8583) from the British Motor
Industry Heritage Trust. The odometer currently registers nearly 18,000
This beautiful car is in
superb condition both mechanically and cosmetically. It is intended to be a
“driver.” Since I acquired it extensive repairs, maintenance and modifications
have been done. Some of the principal
features are listed as follows: 1) new Vredestein tires 185/70/15; 2) new
Panasonic radio w/ CD player, Bluetooth connectivity, stereo speakers, and a
vintage rear-mounted power antenna; 3) LED dash lights; 4) Lucas driving lights
mounted on the badge bar; 5) real leather seats with green piping; 5) stainless
steel 72-spoke wire wheels; 6) Lecarra steering wheel which matches the dash
wood; 7) conventional vinyl tonneau cover plus cloth top boot; 8) seat belts
with AH logos on the buckles; 9) indoor and outdoor car covers; 10) interior
floor, side walls and doors insulated with Dynamat heat and soundproofing
products, including the underside of the transmission cover; 11) Optima
battery; 12) bullet-style side mirrors; (13) vintage California license plate;
(14) trailer tie-down brackets front and rear.
The transmission was
rebuilt less than 2,000 miles ago. Red Line synthetic oil is used, and a
spin-on oil filter is installed. A
Pertronix solid-state distributor and Bosch alternator are installed to improve
performance and reliability; the original distributor and generator can be
delivered with the car. Unlike many other Healeys, this car tends to run cool enough
in our warm climate. It has not overheated even in hot weather.
I live in a mild climate (Chico, CA) and have never used the heater. I think it works but have not attempted to use it. The spare wheel is painted—not stainless steel.
