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.

This a USA delivered early 107 Mercedes badged 350SL from new. The early cars designated for USA had the 4.5L V-8 motor. In a captivating color scheme, Grey-Blue over Black MB Tex, it shows excellent paint quality and shine. Repainted in the original color about 10 years ago, it was a very nicely executed job. Documentation with stamps in the MB service booklet and ancillary service records corroborating mileage.
The interior shows excellent time capsule condition. Dashboard is original and shows perfect without flaws. An early instrument cluster panel is clean showing high contrast between orange needles and speedo/rpm gauges. All switches are easily designated, unworn and work properly. MB Tex seats show no signs of wear, tearing, cracking or fading. Both door cards look new. The carpet is loop style in excellent condition and does not show fading or damage.
According to the previous owner a new black soft top replacement was installed 2 years ago. The hard top is in excellent condition with a near perfect headliner and all original glass and seals in top shape.
The motor fires up immediately without hesitation. Driving is effortless with tight steering, responsive acceleration, immediate torque and tight supple suspension feel. It drives as you would expect a 50,000 mile SL to perform. A superb example with very low documented miles that's been well preserved.
Approximately 9,000 miles ago the muffler was replaced along with a new steering damper and 2 new rear shocks were installed.
Original Becker radio works properly.
14 inch non chrome bundt cake wheels in nice condition. Nice tires show good tread.
