1972 Volkswagen Vans
Van Car for sale in RANCHO SANTA FE, California 92067
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.
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.
Classic Car Overview
This is an all-electric VW Panel Bus, with a Hyper9 electric motor mated directly to the transmission via an adaptor plate. It has 7 Tesla Model S batteries mounted under a custom-made reclaimed teak floor, so that the weight of the 35kWh battery pack is low and between the front and rear wheels. It also means that the rear loading area is unobstructed and fully usable.
It has a real-world range of 110 miles per charge. It has Level 1 and Level 2 charging capability, so that it can charge at home overnight on a regular 110v outlet, or charge at 220v, empty to full on a Level 2 charger in just 4 hours.
The bus has brand new disk brakes in front, with brand new chrome plated 15" Fuchs style wheels and new tires. The body has been fully restored with new custom paint. All-new window linings, chrome decos, turn signals, front lights. The whole interior (inc seats) is brand new, and it is kitted out with a six speaker high power Alpine Stereo, plus subwoofer.
It drives beautifully - loads of torque and lively acceleration, and much better handing now that the weight is lower and moved to the middle. Cruising around town means you just leave it in 3rd gear all day - no need to even use the clutch.
