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.

Classic Car Overview

1974 450SL convertible. I don’t want to sell, but need money for my startup. Has brand new battery and fuel pump. I am not a mechanic, but know enough. After changing the fuel pump and putting a new battery, the car started for a bit but would cut off. Checked the distributor cap and saw some corrosion on connectors. Bought a new rotor and distributor cap at O’Reilly. Replaced it and the car doesn’t start now. At this point I am done, and I don’t have any more time to get the right distributor cap. The cap I got at O’Reilly looks different because the original looks like it has two layers. But I believe the issue is the distributor cap; maybe the wires. The only other issue that I know of is when it would start sometimes the starter would have a whirling sound; so I think the starter is on its way out. My loss is your gain.
