Vintage Japanese Cars: Nissan's Online Heritage Collection

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.

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

Created as a somewhat upmarket Mini.   With a specially built body, similar to a standard Austin/Morris Mini.   But with a different shaped bonnet, elaborate chrome grille shell, air vents, and bumpers.   And in the rear, a larger trunk compartment.   And the Wolseley emblem in the grille lights up when the lights are on.   Sort of like a pinball machine.


And while standard Minis had crude sliding windows and no ventilation, the Wolseleys (and their companion model, the Riley Elf) came with roll up windows, face level air vents, a fresh air heater, wood dash, internal door hinges, and leather seats.


This car:  26,000 original miles (validated by English MOT inspection papers), came to the USA in 2005, never registered, sitting in storage with occasional short drives to local shows, excellent body and subframes, excellent drive train, wiring, chrome, some wear on the driver's seat caused us to reupolstered both front seats in leather, new carpets, interior is excellent.  White exterior with deep red interior.   The 998cc engine produces 38hp but, then again, the curb weight is a mere 1400 pounds.   And with excellent steering and handling.   Compression is 140-145 psi in every cylinder, 65-70 psi oil pressure, no smoke, quiet valves, it really doesn't come better than this.


The fresh air heater has great output, all of the gauges and electrics work, we evacuated and repumped the hydrolastic system and installed all new lines and fittings, trunk floor is perfect, it is a GREAT little car.  AND IF sell the car, we will supply the special hydrolastic pump for use by the next owner.


Truth is, as 'founder, owner, and....best customer,' might very well keep this car in my own collection (and my plan would include fitting a modern stereo, an effective modern auxiliary heater, and a full fabric sunroof)...........but if not, it will be for sale.   If interested, inquire for details.
