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

Numbers-matching fuel-injected power, a loaded interior, and a terrific color combo - this 1979 Datsun 280ZX has an attractive performance classic car pedigree. And theres just something in Datsuns secret formula with the Z-car about how it all works together so well. It makes this the classic coupe thats one of the easiest to enjoy in modern times. Datsun was going upscale with the Z in this era, and the paint package here shows it. The two-tone Gold and Mahogany Metallic is expertly intertwined. In fact, theres even a distinct orange pinstripe to serve as a dividing line as the colors flow up the long hood/fender together. Its part of a high quality respray done later in this cars life. But enough time has passed for it to age in, and the two-tone is the ideal 1970s style, so that some people may even suspect its original (we wont tell the secret if you wont!) Regardless, youll love how the metallic element radiates in the sunshine to show off the Datsuns iconic curves. This one really gets the details correct, right down to the well-fitting sheetmetal and artful 14-inch alloys. Plus, there are some nice subtle upgrades, like the tinted windows and the headlight covers that gives this a hint of Jaguar E-type style. The upscale feeling of these later Z-cars continues when you open the door. You get a pair of plush velour seats with a center console in-between. The sports steering wheel gives you a clear view to the large speedo and tach, so this is a great place for grand touring comfort. A premium sports car like this came with plenty of factory options like power windows, power locks, and AM/FM/cassette stereo. The factory air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant, and so its easy to enjoy this coupe even in the summer. The fuel-injected 2.8-liter motor is why this one is always calling for the open road. This is the numbers-matching unit and it shows fresher components from good care. In fact, we were given some notes stating this was with a long-term first owner and was recently given a fresh tune up. The way it fires up and runs affirms a lifetime of proper upkeep. This SOHC inline-six has a legendary smoothness and rev-happy nature that helped establish Datsun/Nissan as an exciting brand of cars. Out on the road you experience the harmony of the three-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Its a true touring coupe. The sale comes complete with terrific paperwork, like the owners manual, warranty booklet, service manuals, and a long maintenance record. This is a well-respected two-tone classic in the rapidly appreciating Japanese classic sports car field. So you know this is a great Z-car you need in your garage. Call today!!!
