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

Iconic, fun, and affordable, this 1977 MG MGB is the nimble British droptop that instantly reminds you why you love driving from the moment it catches your eye. The MGB is one of those great affordable symbols of the open road. And its hard to beat a classic convertible like this when its finished in red. This was refreshed later in life, and so there is still quite a nice gloss and shine exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly droptop. Plus, theres more shine in the full-length side trim, and this also highlights the straightness of the body panels. You also get more polish on the optional luggage rack, and iconic Rostyle wheels. And while all this gives this car a bright personality, it also has the appeal of a well-coordinated contrasting dark side with the black bumpers, black side mirrors, and a black top. So this is a car of distinction even when the roof is in place. As good as this might look with the roof up, we all really know the secret to enjoyment is when the top is stowed. The interior offers a deep and dark presentation to make sure this has a very well-coordinated color appeal inside and out. This is built to be a drivers machine, and thats why you have high-back bucket seats, a grippy steering wheel, and a gearstick in the right place for you to rest your hand thats why this car feels like its built around you. Theres even an upgraded Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD stereo so you can choose to your favorite music for top-down motoring. Under the hood is a correct 1800cc motor. This is known to be a stout powerplant, and the way it fires up readily confirms it. Plus, you have worthwhile upgrades, like the Weber carburetor and twin electric fans on the radiator. The best part of this setup is that you get to take full advantage of it with the four-speed manual transmission. And because you have power brakes w/discs up front, the grip of modern tires with deep tread, and MGs nimble handling, this one is ready for your favorite open road. Complete with owners manual, this is the iconic British roadster offered with the right features and color... all for an affordable price. Dont miss this deal, call today!
