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 1972 Volkswagen is dressed as the most famous Beetle of all: Herbie the Love Bug. If you grew up in the 70s and 80s, you enjoyed the little cars exploits on the big screen, and underneath youll find a sturdy, solid little VW so even if youre not a Love Bug fan, this car has a lot to offer.

There was a time in the mid-70s when every kid in America could identify this car from a mile away. White VW Beetles were sprouting red and blue stripes and a big 53 on the doors to emulate the plucky little car with a big attitude, so this car is definitely going to take you back. The good news is that its quite solid and ready to enjoy. No, its not perfect, but neither was the real Herbie, although this one has a wonderful soft shine to the paint that looks quite period-perfect. The graphics are well done such that theres no denying the inspiration for this Bugs restoration. Fit and finish are decent all around and even without the stripes and gumballs, this would be a smart buy just because its in such good shape. It still offers early Beetle styling cues like the flat windshield and smaller fender and rear marker lights, making it a favorite among VW enthusiasts. The chrome is quite good, the glass is in great shape, and the running boards are nicely trimmed.

Its standard VW fare inside, with high-back buckets covered in textured vinyl thats virtually indestructible. The back seat does have a cover, but can be easily removed and replaced. The original speedometer/fuel gauge setup gives you the basics and has an updated Grant racing steering wheel.

VWs familiar 1600 cc flat-four whistles away under the rear deck. You do get a very nicely finished engine. The 4-speed is typical VW vague, but the suspension feels buttoned-down and competent and the dual exhaust system gives it that traditional VW sound. Steel wheels with hubcaps and 185/65/15 Sentury radials complete this little race car.

Herbie is ready for its new home with you! Call us today, 480-256-1459.
