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

Amazing Find - first generation RX-7 with only 55k miles and two owners since new. Runs/Drives great! New tires, muffler and clutch in the past few years. AC (will need a recharge), 5spd, power antennae. Wheels sandblasted and powder coated when new tires installed to enhance the look. Power antennae and headlights function as they should. Clean and rust free, stored winters once arriving in the Midwest. Sold new in KY. Interior seats have a few minor blemishes but otherwise everything you would expect from a pampered low mile car. Original owner would start the car monthly even when in long term storage to keep everything lubricated properly. These affordable sports cars back in the day are quickly gaining in popularity among collectors today, and low mileage examples are always the most desirable, so dont let this one slip past you - call us today. Financing/Shipping is available, and we sell worldwide! By the late 1970s, new sports car introductions were a rare event. Sensing the same need that Nissan had in 1969 for an affordable, reliable and basic sports car, Mazda rushed to fill the niche that Datsun had abandoned when they irretrievably took the 240Z upmarket as the 280ZX. Mazda even had the nerve to invoke the beloved 240Z in the original ads for the RX-7. Mazda in those days was heavily invested into Wankel/Rotary engine technology so it was a natural that the light, compact, and powerful engine would find a home in Madzas new sports car. It gave near V-8 performance and a lofty redline, just what enthusiasts had been clamoring for. Affordable, quick, and well-built, Mazda dealers were playing the game that Datsun dealers had a decade before. Few RX-7s left dealer lots at anything near sticker price. GS cars were more heavily optioned and could be had with automatic and air conditioning. There were few changes (and few color choices) for the first several years, with the 100-hp 12-A version of the Rotary being the only engine available. It was enough to give the lightweight car more than adequate performance for the day.
