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

Beautiful example.......57,000 miles, virtually perfect, rust free floor/sills/rockers, excellent body with excellent Tahiti blue ORIGINAL PAINT AFTER 38 YEARS!!!!!!!), 32 DGV Weber carb with tubular racing headers, complete professional chrome bumper conversion, new bumpers, guards, Mk I grille, new lights, wire wheels, new splined hub adapters, new chrome knock offs, lowered to pre 1974 1/2 ride height, new front bushings, a LOT of work went into this car. We even spent more money to eliminate the side lights so that the exterior is identical to a 1962-1968 MGB,. The best looking of all. Compression: 140-145 psi in every cylinder, zero smoke, 70 psi oil pressure (all 'as new'), excellent transmission, running, driving. New top, wood dashboard, new Sony stereo with USB input, leather steering wheel, excellent Autumn Leak interior. Whats nice about this late model car is the refinements so often overlooked. As one of the last MGBs, servo assist disc brakes, front and rear sway bars, bigger gauges, better controls, electronic ignition, thermostatically controlled cooling fan, in some ways, sort of like 35% Honda/Toyota and 65% classic English sports car. Simple, reliable, stylish, and (perhaps most important)....fun. We can also install modern (and very effective) air conditioning which makes this car an interesting alternative to a contemporary sports car. Okay, will not do 0-60 in four seconds but is that REALLY that important? For normal use, cruising at any practical speed, great handling, a rust free, excellent MGB is just about perfect. This car was owned (and babied) by an MGB car club member and is one of the cleanest, nicest original MGBs we have ever seen. ABSOLUTELY rust free and with perfect fit of everything. Even the original jack and jack bag. Runs and drives wonderfully and would be an ideal classic to use as an alternative to a contemporary car.
