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.
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
One of the best conversions we have ever done....prepared for a couple in New York City who wanted a really well trimmed little sports car. Which we delivered to them.
Started with an excellent, rust free 1977 roadster with only 67,000 original miles, perfect floors and body. Then repainted in a darker blue....it really is gorgeous. And an elaborately done interior, tan with burled wood dashboard. And a tan top. Not sure the photos do this car justice as 'in person,' it is a real jewel.
Excellent engine and transmission, Weber, improved exhaust manifold, lowered to pre-1975 ride height, redone front end, new bushings and springs. And finally an elaborate chrome bumper conversion, all new chrome, new grille, lights, brackets, sheet metal and we even eliminated the side lights. Other than the more efficient triple wipers, the exterior is identical to a pre-1969 MB.
Wire wheels, brakes gone over, modern stereo/CD, carpeted trunk, spare wheel cover, virtually perfect wiring and electrics, all the virtues of a late model B....rear sway bar, power disc brakes, better engine, smoother transmission, stronger back axle, far better electrics, thermostatically controlled electric radiator fans, electronic ignition.....geez, sounds like a modern car, doesn't it?
And it runs oh, so well, smooth ride, precise steering, excellent brakes, and ample straight line performance with a top speed over 100 mph. Reliable, easy to service and most parts are incredibly inexpensive. Ready for daily use, shows, and long distance cruising.
Most people just don't know how good these late model MGBs really are....once you get past them (in stock form) being ugly, ill handling, and gutless. But not this lovely car.
