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

Very Straight and nearly rust free Spitfire 1500. The body has no bondo on the front half and only minor fill near the tail lights and wheel arches. The factory paint on the under side of the hood shows no previous repair. The floor pans and trunk floor are solid with only a small amount of surface rust in a few places. The factory metal hardtop is in good shape but will need the headliner and some glass. . Engine runs smoothly without smoking. Most of the chrome and lights are in good condition. I installed gas struts for the hood as the factory prop is dangerous. New electric fuel pump conversion.  Gas Tank cleaned with new hoses. The car will need a new distributor, interior, paint, hydraulics.  Included is the Factory luggage rack but needs the mounts, a newer black tonneau cover, period AM/FM/Cassette radio, convertible top frame and workshop manual. Drivers door is from an earlier Spitfire. 1978 driver's doors are available on ebay.
