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

I’m selling for a family member a well-loved, beautiful original example of a 1978 Mercedes-Benz 450SL.  It’s selling AS IS.  If you would like additional information or pictures, please let me know.

The exterior is finished in a wonderful original Maple Yellow, includes the color matching hardtop shown in the photos and a never installed soft top.  It’s rolling on authentic Mercedes Benz chrome wheels with four newly purchased center caps.  It has been professionally detailed with a ceramic coating treatment and is good for two years if garaged.

The luxurious MB TEX caramel colored interior has leather covered seats which was also professionally detailed and has matching carpets, floor mats and plastics.  Amenities include cruise control, air conditioning and power windows. There is minor cracking on the wood trim around the gear shift lever which can be seen in the photos.  Instrumentation includes a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer, gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure and fuel level. The six-digit odometer shows approximately 138k miles.

 Accompanying records will show the following service/maintenance completed on interior components:

 2020 - New chrome passenger seat belt cover replaced
 2017 – New Mercedes dealer installed driver side rail, window regulator and electric motor
 2013 – New AC/Heater control

 It’s powered by a 4.5-liter V8 paired with a three-speed transmission.  
 Accompanying records will show the following service/maintenance completed on engine components:
 2020 - New rear brakes & rotors
 2017 - New front brakes, rotors, sway bar link (rear) and thermostat
 2015 - New upper control arm, lower control arm bushings, ball joint, shock, sway bar bushing, center drag link, steering damper, tie rod ends, valve cover gasket and spark plugs
 2014 - New heater control valve servo, A/C amplifier and relay
 2013 – New A/C pulley and alternator
 2012 – New power steering pump
 2011 – New Mercedes dealer installed fuel distributor, all fuel injectors, exhaust system and heat shields
 It has been reported that the engine runs hot in the Arizona heat.  The transmission lever has minor play without impact to gear placement.

This is offered with manufacturer’s literature, two keys, partial service records/receipts and a clean Arizona title.
