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.

Classic Car Overview

True premium luxury is expressed with long wheelbase V8-power Mercedes sedans. Thats why this loaded, low mileage, and well-maintained 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SEL shows that you know how to blend executive-level luxury with vintage style. This is the car that launched the S-Class designation of grand luxury sedans. And few cars have a more commanding road presence than an S-Class Mercedes. The gray-blue metallic is believed to be the factory paint. It shows its history, but the level of shine it still radiates is also a reminder of the exceptional time and quality that went into these flagship cars. Bright bumpers, trim, and proper Mercedes alloys with upgraded polish go nicely with this color (the original wheels are also available if desired.) The executive-level transport has style in spades. In typical German fashion, the design is restrained and the clean lines minimize the cars size, but theres no denying that this is a real presence on the road. And wherever you arrive, there is a quite nod of appreciation when people see this symbol vintage stature. The full dark blue interior looks great against the lighter blue exterior to deliver one of this ideal European color combos. It looks particularly nice with the wood trim around the dash and center console. The longer wheelbase SEL models offered more room for back seat passengers to spread out. But you dont buy a car like this for everyone else. This is a true drivers machine with the classically comfy Mercedes bucket seat covered in leather. You get great features, like power windows, cruise control, an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo, and a power sunroof. There are provisions for air conditioning that include recent investments in a new fan assembly and compressor. Power comes from a 4.5-liter V8 its the 450 in 450SEL. This was the upgraded V8 from Mercedes at the time, and so it makes this S-Class a true executive-level express. Theres a deep well of torque to make the big sedan feel quick from a standstill and light on its feet. Its also legendary for its durability, and that only gets better on an example like this. After all, it has averaged less than 1,500 miles annually. Plus, theres a nice maintenance file, including $1,600 receipt from late 2017 that includes radiator, electrical work, and a tune-up. So it fires up with the kind of vigor that makes far newer vehicles jealous. The three-speed automatic transmission makes for an effortless cruiser. Plus, the fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes give this large sedan a surefootedness you dont find on many other classics. If you love a classic that has the sturdiness to be enjoyable in modern times, dont miss this Mercedes. Call today!!!
