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
A rare beauty offered for sale by the original owners. We picked this car up in 1972 from the factory floor in Stuttgart, Germany. Driven on vacation to Athens, Greece it was shipped back to Marin County where it has resided ever since.
The odometer says 16555 miles, but has flipped twice. The car was driven routinely until about 10 years ago and was well maintained mechanically throughout its lifetime. It's dwell and timing were last adjusted in September 2018 and in December 2017 a full brake job was completed. Service records go back only 7 years however and show about 100 miles per year usage over that time. Most everything works with few a small exceptions. It's street legal apart from one burned out left low beam and remains a strong driver with tight steering, strong engine and smooth automatic shifting.
Cosmetically the car can use attention. The front seat bottoms are badly worn as are the carpets (drivers side mostly). The top of the back seats and associated carpet are sun faded and cracking. The front dash is in good condition with the radio speaker cover showing some sun damage. Otherwise the interior panels and roof lining are in mostly good condition. The car has been painted once due to wear and tear (same original color). The rear paint is sun faded again as it was stored in a garage without a door.
Minor spots of rust can be found here and there throughout. The exception is the trunk floor panel, especially the left back portion, which shows rust damage. The spare tire recession is not rusted.
