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
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.
