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

1977 Mercedes Benz 450 SLC Three-box design is a broad automotive styling term describing a coup, sedan, notchback or hatchback where, when viewed in profile, principal volumes are articulated into three separate compartments or boxes: engine, passenger and cargo. Designed by Paul Bracq, a Frenchman and noted automotive designer, this classic design would be the standard at Mercedes Benz for the 60s and 70s. Oftentimes when you come across an old car for sale and its in great condition there is a wonderful story behind it. And our consignment of this 1977 Mercedes 450SLC AMG is a great example. Now gracing our hallowed halls offered up by our consignor and the original owner being a woman who bought the car new in Germany and then brought it back to the states when she moved here in 1985. She then drove the car for another 2 decades tooling about in California. Exterior Bathed in red and silver two tone, the straight steel panels, are showing well minded gaps all around. Chrome is excellent, and all badging is looking good and original, but in all the right places. Nice brite work in the form of the iconic tri-pointed star centered grille, window surrounds, and a black spear running along the side midline, as well as shiny trimmings which run between the metal of the hardtop, give the car a solid and expensive look. Powder coated black AMG wheels give this skate a unique look, ready to roll low and slow or fast and furious. Noted in front is a silver modified lower grille that sports a chin spoiler, and in back atop the trunk is a small wrap around spoiler. Also, a louvered silver insert is put in just aft of the back glass prior to the beginning of the B pillar. Wheel well chrome top trimmings also add to the mix. A few of these AMG pepperings are sprinkled about on this exterior. Interior Opening and closing the solid doors on this car yields the sought-after thud sound upon the close. No other manufacturer can achieve this, and what makes it unique to Mercedes Benz, is the quality and thickness of the steel they use in these cars. Looking inside we are met with plenty of MB Tex coverings on the like never used bucket seats, door panels and headliner, all presenting nicely, no cracks or tears, in a mellow warm tan. Within the door panels just to be a bit different, not unlike the exterior look, some checkered tweed broadcloth panels have been added to the doors. That same golden tan is covering the floors and rear compartment in nicely preserved carpet. Tan carpeted floor mats are above the golden tan carpet and are definitely keeping it in clean condition. Power windows, air conditioning, power steering and power brakes are noted. The dash, fronted by the original steering wheel, is excellent and very clean. A Clarion AM/FM/Cassette radio sits in its factory designated position and works well. A series of eyeball vents for heat and A/C run along the dash top which is padded and showing no cracking or marring. Drivetrain An original restored and nicely polished and detailed well maintained 4.5 Liter V8 engine graces the engine bay, which shows like new. No corrosion, and shiny supple hoses and wiring are shoehorned into this wonderful looking engine bay. Bosch Jetronic EFI is on. A 3-speed automatic is attached to the back of the V8 and shifts smoothly. 3.07 is the rear axle designation. Undercarriage As noted with the topside, well cared for, with virtually no surface rust, with even the exhaust piping and mufflers now blackened. Structurally sound frame with clean floor pans, and surfaces underneath, and we have a very nice 450 SLC AMG package, which includes independent coil springs and power disc braking all around. Drive-Ability This beautiful 4.5 fired right up and on the test track it is a thriller. GREAT Acceleration, good handling and looking smooth in the two tone and black wheels. All functions are working just swimmingly. A beautiful sports car driver if you will. New Mercedes Benz sports cars are nice with their bells and whistles, but lately, a return to the classic look from this German Manufacturer is becoming more desirable. It is probably harkening back to an era when the cars were all steel, no plastic, and weighed a ton. Sporty, with luxury, great lines with class, this iconic Mercedes sports car fixed hardtop sedan 2 seater is yours for the taking here at Classic Auto Mall. Lets just say you could have a ton of fun with this German Classic! Can you say Panzer Tank, that you can roll through the burbs and turn heads? All courtesy the forethought of an adventurous woman who decided to make it an AMG, rarely seen here in the US from 1977.
