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
Geez, IF you ever wanted a Sunbeam Tiger but are now shocked at their ever escalating prices....maybe this MGB is the one for you. A super modified MGB roadster.
Fitted with a 1985 Ford 302 V8, high performance camshaft, brand new Holley 600cfm four barrel carb, headers, just a guess.....250-270hp? When you consider a stock MGB of this era is barely 90hp, even the English MGBGTV8 was only rated at 137hp, you can imagine the performance....in a car weighing just over 2,000 pounds. And, as an example, my own Lotus Elise is 189hp in a 1970 pound car.
Mated to a rebuilt C4 auto trans and just installed....with shift kit. As instructed by the last owner, works best when shifted like a manual unit with the advantage of not having a clutch pedal to operate.
Other work.......Ford 9" rear with 373 gears, new dual master cylinder, gas tank flushed and cleaned, radiator flushed, a lot of work ....just done.
All new Dolphin gauges and senders, all work properly, electric radiator fan, relocated heater core, roll bar with a removable front bar, checked over the body with a magnet....no indication of plastic filler anywhere. With excellent floors and perfect trunk floor.
Interior is stock, good condition, a later year dash was installed, Crager wheels appear to be very heavy duty to take the engine's awesome torque, tires are 185/60-15 (the larger diameter wheels offer higher gearing), paint is amply good....looks great in photos but a bit less up close. But who cares? It is in the performance that makes this car dazzle.
Not 'your ordinary' MGB but if the idea of having a wickedly fast little sports car is appealing, look no further. 'Cause here it is.
