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

Gateway Classic Cars Dallas is proud to present a 2-owner 1976 Datsun 280Z 2+2. Fuel Injected L28 with original 4-speed Manual Transmission. This coupe was purchased from its first Californian owner about 5 years ago and shipped to Texas. Since then, its always been garaged. The Z remains mostly original except for period-correct modifications either imported from Japan or refinished. No expense was spared when sourcing and upgrading parts. The headlight covers, fender mirrors, and wood steering wheel are ORIGINAL Datsun parts. The RARE single-knob rally date/clock has been updated to quartz movement by Z-Clocks and is in working condition. The wheels are retro SSR Longchamp XR-4 15--staggered 8-inch rear/7.5-inch front--WITH center caps, and great tread remaining on Yokohama AVID Touring 205/60R15 tires. (The bolts have been refinished in yellow zinc.) The engine bay is clean, and the engine inspection light works. The seats are original with no TEARS, and the rear seat has been fitted with a RARE AMCO pull bar. The rear louver has been repainted and includes the key for locking the shade. The hatch sits on top of Euro/JDM taillights. The undercarriage shows very well, as all suspension had been replaced in June 2019 by a Z specialist shop in Ft. Worth--polyurethane bushings on Eibach Progressive springs and KYB struts with a wheel alignment. The air filter and oil filter are OEM Datsun. In fact, everything was restored, installed, or modified by either a professional mechanic or body shop. The body was repainted in its original color--light blue metallic (paint code 305) by the original elderly owner, and all of his service records were meticulously documented in a large binder to be included with the sale. Also included will be all the original parts: left-side mirror, USDM taillights, steering wheel, 4-speed shift knob with green shift pattern, and all Datsun and 2+2 emblems. The 280Z emblems still show the orangish-red epoxy, and Ill even include another set of 2+2 quarter panel emblems (imported from Japan) with full orange/red epoxy. The bumper is the large DOT-mandated chrome, but the black rubber bumper trim is all in good condition with minimal cracks. It even has the original spare tire and tool bag. The fenders are not cut (too clean), and the Retro-spec victory wing was attached with 3M double-sided tape. The louvers also slide under the weather seal so the hatch is intact. The only part of the body that was modified was where the fender mirrors were installed. But the left side mirror hole was paint-matched and covered by the body shop. AC works with original R12. The Z starts rights up with a single turn. Sure, its a 2+2 and over 40 years old. This is one of the, cleanest Zs for sale. The car sits lower, shifts smoothly, brakes are tight, and the engine is responsive. Its been really fun to own and show.
