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

This 1971 Jaguar E-Type Series III 2+2 is finished in Regency Red over a biscuit interior and is powered by a 5.3-Liter V12 engine paired with a three speed automatic transmission. With only 44,377 miles, this is an all numbers matching car (chassis, engine, transmission and body) including the original paint and interior combination as confirmed by the Jaguar Heritage Certificate. Often said, a car is only original once, therefore the work done has been sympathetic to this philosophy to update or maintain mechanically whilst striving to keep the car as original as possible. This work is described below and listed with receipts included in the sale along with a clean California Title.

Beautiful Regency Red paint that is a richer and darker shade of the often seen Signal Red. Being 50 year old paint, it has some expected marks and chips and has been touched up in places, and there is some light cracking on the roof highlighted in the pictures. This car looks spectacular and is the best of both worlds - perfect for driving regularly and taking to car shows. No rust, this is an extremely clean and solid car inside, out and underneath. All the chrome work and glass and mirrors look fantastic.

Replacement rubber seals around the doors and windows, updating the headlights to be brighter, and slightly wider 215/70R15 tires wrapping the 15 steel wheels that feature chrome Jaguar caps all add to the pleasure and comfort of driving one of the most beautiful cars ever designed.

Interior appointments include replaced dash-top vinyl covering, recharged and replaced AC compressor for cold blowing air conditioning that works perfectly, RetroSound digital radio to match the look of the original adding Bluetooth, USB cable and SirusXM, heater and shoulder belts along with lap belts in the rear. An original Jaguar wood steering wheel was purchased and replaced the factory leather wrapped wheel which is included along with the old AM/FM radio. As the interior is 50 year old leather and fabric there is some wear, marks and fading highlighted in the photo gallery - but is incredibly comfortable and the drivers seat has been re-padded.

Smiths instruments consist of a 160-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, analog clock and gauges for voltage, oil pressure, water temperature and fuel level. The five digit odometer shows 44,377k miles. All gauges and interior lights and switches are fully operable with a restored speedometer and replaced oil pressure sending unit. Dashboard lights were replaced with SNG Barrett LED bulbs.

Almost $35,000 in receipts can be provided that outline the work completed. This includes:

Upgraded ignition kit
New aluminum radiator and fan set-up
Electronic fuel pump
Upgraded and replaced the power steering rack
Brake calipers, pads updated with EBC Kevlar and handbrake set
Stromberg Carb sync and tune ups
Replaced brake master cylinder and new brake Servo assembly
Replaced exhaust system with an original refurbished system

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission and a limited-slip differential. The automatic shifts smoothly and is a joy to drive in both traffic and longer touring trips with loads of power from the V12 engine. It drives straight, with no pull and stops confidently with the upgraded brakes. Thanks to additional cooling, the engine temperature stays cool even on 95 degree plus days. Additional underside photos are provided in the gallery, and a walk-around, startup and driving videos can be seen below. Please reach out with any questions at all.

The Jaguar Heritage Trust Production Record Trace certificate shows the original colors and drivetrain numbers as well as the manufacture and dispatch dates.
Car is sold "as is" and being a used classic car, is sold without warranty. Buyer to verify all claims and specifications prior to purchase.
