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

- Chassis # AM115492278
- Engine # AM115492278
- 4.9 Liter V8 Mated To ZF 5-Speed Manual Gearbox
- A Matching Numbers Example
- 1 Of Just 425 4.9 Liter Coupes Produced
- Optional Factory Air-Conditioning

The example offered here,  AM115492278, bears the distinction of being just one of 425 in SS specification. Introduced in 1969, the SS carried a stroked motor that increased the displacement up to 4.9 Liters. Breathing through four twin-choke Webber carburetors, power was increased to 330hp and made the Ghibli good for roughly 174mph. The Ghibli SS is a real performer, and its sonorous V8 at full song will most certainly satisfy any devotee of speed. 

Remarkably, the example on offer before you has remained under the care of just a single owner since 1988. At that time, the vehicle was listed amongst the curated collection at MIE, the market side of the Maserati Club International who are an invaluable resource for the community in their offering of genuine parts. At a later date, the Ghibli was placed in the hands of Personalized Automotive Services of Kenosha, Wisconsin for a full restoration. 

Years on, the restoration has worn the time with grace and appears as a fine representation of the breed. Finished in the ubiquitous red exterior of most sporting Italian motorcars, this Ghibli possesses only a handful of minor paint blemishes and scuffs one would expect to find after being enjoyed by its owner after a period of time.  Its white leather interior is spectacularly representative of the period in which the car was produced and serves to aid the attractiveness of the overall package. The leather wears its age much in the same way as the exterior. Few signs of wear are to be found on the seats but other elements on the dash and steering column are beginning to reach maturity. Crucially, the vehicle has retained its factory air conditioning system which will drastically increase the usability of the vehicle on warm weather days.   Under the hood, a recent detailing has allowed the motor to show in fine condition. All of the running gear is accounted for, albeit with some components displaying the same level of light aging found on the rest of the vehicle. The worn-in condition of this Maserati makes for an inviting, ready to use grand tourer. Alternatively, the car would be a wonderful starting point for a sympathetic and detailed mild-restoration project. 

While many cars of the period put a premium on pure flash, the Maserati Ghibli stood out from the pack by offering enthusiasts a modernizing of classic principles. Its glorious quad-cam V8 is one of the automotive world’s best, and in SS trim is truly a must-have for anyone who appreciates unbridled speed. Now is a wonderful opportunity to get behind the wheel of a sought-after, and rare Italian classic.
