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 classic 1971 Beetle is in nearly original condition, and has been well cared for by its three owners.  The car runs great, starts easy, shifts smoothly, and is in very good overall condition.  It is largely rust free, with clear glass, and electrical system working without issues.  A few areas of the chrome trim has some pitting. The radio is new, but designed to appear as the original radio.  Has original owners manual. 
The vehicle was imported from (West) Germany in 1971 and first purchased by a woman who carefully retained a record of routine maintenance throughout the 70's, 80's, and 90's.  The woman passed away in the 2000s when an elderly man purchased the vehicle at an estate auction, and he only drove it occasionally.  The man had the motor and transmission reconditioned, the seats re-covered and new carpet installed with original materials from Germany. 
I purchased the car in 2010 and have driven it short distances on a weekly basis.   Since I purchased the vehicle, it has been perfectly reliable. I've only had to replace the speedo cable and later the speedometer itself.  Since reconditioning, the car has been driven approximately 7,000 miles (the replacement speedometer was taken used from another 1971 bug and the mileage reads more than the total actual miles on the car). 
I am moving overseas in a few months and, unfortunately, I can not take it with me. $6,900
