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

As the last of the breed, the BJ8s benefited from all the updates and improvements made over the production years, featuring gorgeous burl wood dashes, roll up windows, full weather protection, improved road clearance, and other refinements.

Aside from the model characteristics, this BJ8 is truly remarkable. It is a fully documented example whose owner treasured the car for over 51 years, after having purchased it as a year old car at Continental Cars in Florissant, Missouri, in June of 1967. With its 51-year-long owner being a true Austin Healey aficionado and club member, this big Healey received proper servicing and attending to. The car never fell derelict and was always properly cared for and exercised.

This car has never been taken apart and put back together again but lovingly maintained and refreshed as needed. It had one high quality respray a few years ago in its original Old English White at which time the contrasting bronze cove color was added. The paint still presents very well today.

It has also had a new top top, chrome wire wheels and interior freshening where needed using correct materials.

Drive-wise, the car is simply excellent. She makes great power, sounds fabulous, and handles as designed. This then, presents an opportunity to acquire a very original BJ8 that has only had what was needed to maintain it cosmetically and mechanically to a high standard.

On the 30th of March we ran a compression test and all 6 cylinders are perfect (around 155psi which is validated on the photos included)
