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

Immaculate 1974 450SEL with 46,000 original miles. This car has been my daily driver for 2 years. I purchased it at 38,000 miles in excellent condition, and I have serviced it at regular intervals. 

The engine is powerful, and smooth. All 5,000lbs. of this car floats down the highway at 100mph+ and the engine has no struggle. The automatic windows all work. The interior is clean. The A/C blows cold. Mechanically it runs FLAWLESSLY. Every gasket you can name has been replaced. New serpentine belt placed at last service. New rear suspension. New power steering pump. It handles super well in winding roads and brakes beautifully. 

There are only 2 issues with the car: 1.) There is a thin 1-inch long paint chip on the hood and 2.) one of the levers that directs A/C to the windshield catches. Otherwise, you cannot find another 450SEL in this good condition. 

The bumpers are upgraded chrome bumpers that are rare on 450SEL's, making it longer than a Chevy Suburban. It is a presence on the road! The wheels are original AMG wheels. The headlights are euro spec upgrades.
