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

This 1979 Mercedes-Benz 450SL is part of a timeless luxury tradition. So to find such a well-priced example with desirable features (including fuel injection and a removable hardtop) makes for an irresistible deal. The Mercedes R107 is one of those cars that just seems to transcend age. You look distinguished driving one no matter if you are in your 20s or 80s. This broad range appeal is especially true on this factory-correct white example. After all, its nice to have a color as eternal as the car. These Benzs are known for their build quality, and you can that here as this convertible is entering its fourth decade, and it still looks crisp with gaps that would be the envy of other 1970s machines. And as you look over the car, youre going to see some premium details, like polished factory-style wheels and a color-matched removable hardtop. While the hardtop gives you a coupe-like profile, and the complete soft top frame means its an easy step to have a nice ragtop, we really love these best as convertibles. In fact, you know these are meant to be open to the world when the tan exterior pinstripe is a nice preview of the tan interior. This is meant to be a comfortable cruiser with two high-back bucket seats, power windows, cruise control, and factory air conditioning (needs servicing.) The Mercedes safety steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it gives you a clear view the full VDO gauge panel with crisp dials for everything, including the speedo and tach. A great cruising Mercedes starts with proper V8 power. The 4.5-liter motor was one of the largest they produced in this era, and this one is believed to be original to the car. It was built for driving on the autobahn, and so its a fuel-injected SOHC setup. Plus, the four-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly all the way into overdrive. The four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and fully independent suspension are all part of a total package that feels like a confident classic. Complete with owners manual, this is a well-priced example of timeless elegance. The SL you thought was out of reach is now closer to your doorstep. Call today!!!
