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

History

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 miles. 

Attributes

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. 

Disclaimers

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.
