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

HIGHLIGHTS: 1978 Mercedes 450SL with an incredibly low documented 33,000 actual miles. Complete ownership history since new! BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 450SL is clean and straight, as one would expect for a vehicle with this low of miles. The body is free of any bubbling or evidence of any accidents. There are some of your typical road rash that you would expect with a vehicle that hasnt been restored, but all of the minor flaws are consistent with a 33k mile vehicle. All emblems are in place and have a brilliant shine! The body on this car is in beautiful condition, and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This well documented Mercedes appears to be wearing the majority of its original yellow paint. Considering the age of the vehicle, the paint is in nice condition. While some normal fading has occurred and based on the receipts we do know that the decklid was repainted in the early 80s and if you look closely you can tell it has some cracking in the paint and is a shade off. Aside from the aforementioned nicks and dings, the paint has held up well. Overall, this is a car with plenty of curb appeal and would be considered in the perfect condition to be driven and enjoyed frequently. INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car, the interior is in remarkable condition, which is no surprise given the low mileage. Most of the interior is original to the car, but we do have receipts in the mid 90s when the seats were replaced. Because of this, the seats, carpet and dash all look in incredible shape. This car is comfortable, and presents very nicely! MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is the 4.5L Mercedes-Benz V8. The engine in this car purrs like any good Mercedes-Benz should, and provides more than adequate power for a car this size. It feels very solid to drive, and handles like only a German touring car can. This car fires right up, and is a blast to drive! Accompanying this vehicle is a binder full of receipts that showcase why this vehicle is incredible to drive. WHAT YOULL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The extremely low miles, awesome color combination and the fact that we have every receipt since new on the car. WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Low mileage vehicles arent for everyone. And the small paint issues on the decklid. DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Nope, everything works on this car. Even the A/C is blowing cold. WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Any Mercedes-Benz enthusiast looking for a clean, ready to drive R107 450SL!
