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

Gorgeous car..........can't quite describe the color but other than a couple of micro chips, as flawless a body prep and paint as have ever seen.   No orange peel, and to use the current vernacular:  laser straight and with a mirror image.  Just beautiful.   Paintwork worthy of a show Ferrari.

So is the rest of the car.........all new tan interior, tan boot cover, new top convertible top, excellent dash, door panels, carpets, mats, everything.  

LOTS of expensive options and improvements......new huge aluminum radiator with a gigantic shrouded electric cooling fan,  even a new custom made aluminum coolant tank.  New Weber carb with electric choke, new 'extra light' high performance Panasport wheels (the best for this application) with 185/60-14 high speed radials, new stereo/CD with bluetooth and USB input, new electric fuel pump, ANSA exhaust, extra 12v outlets under the dash, the sum total of these extras is impressive.

What else?  Perfect rust free floors, inner sills, and rockers.  Excellent wiring and electrics, powerful two speed heating fan, inertia reel belts, sufficient room in the back for two small kids (and we can install seat belts), luggage rack, original jack and tools, very good chrome and trim, what else can we add?

Starts instantly (assisted by the electric choke), runs flawlessly, nice 5 speed close ratio transmission, precise steering (we can see new track rods and other front end work done), new calipers, rotors, and pads (yes, the brakes work very well), new exterior emblems, IF you want a classic sports car, comfortable, reliable, easy to service and maintain, with a wide variety of parts readily available (rotors were $69 for a pair, calipers were $134 for a pair), AND with real Italian style and a body designed by the same company that designed many Ferraris and other exotics....AND for substantially less then $20k...........here it is.
