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.

Classic Car Overview

This is a rare opportunity to own a time capsule of a car. This 1979 MGB is a genuine Limited Edition model, and it comes with all its unique pieces. Its been hidden away for decades, so you have ultra-low mileage. But it has also been properly resurrected with the right recent investments, so its ready to hit the road right now. This MGB might be celebrating its 40th anniversary, and this is a genuine Limited Edition model, but there is much more to this ones story. It has been in storage for the last 38 years. Thats how you get a classic with barely over 9,000 miles on the odometer. But they also took their time to bring this one back to road-ready condition while respecting the preservation efforts. Thats why the black paint is believed to be original, and it has been cleaned to have a great luster while still showing originality. In fact, only Limited Edition cars were black and they received a special silver striping package from the factory. So British car fans will already know this one is something special before you get to tell the cars unique story. Other distinct features of these LE cars are the deep chin spoiler and luggage rack. And those special five-spoke alloys were true calling card for these special edition convertibles (less than 6,800 were made over a two-year run.) While the new black convertible top has a nice color to look great against the car, the tan interior gives this convertible a timeless color combo youll love sharing with the world. Being hidden away for decades means you get a time capsule-like appearance on the high-back bucket seats, smooth dash, and even the convertible boot cover. This one has a great period-correct look and feel, right down to the AM/FM stereo. Plus, with the crisp gauges, grippy sports steering wheel, and a perfectly-placed gearshift, this is a terrific way to enjoy classic motoring. While the LE package already gives this car distinction, there are other great added pieces, like the cocoa mats. And the recently added air conditioning blow nice and cold. So feel free to enjoy top-down motor long into the summertime. The motor is believed to be original to the car, and you can instantly see from its condition that they have made big investments here before putting this MGB back on the road. That meant going through everything, right down to the dual Weber carbs. And it even has a new ignition. New power brakes (with discs up front) and new tires mean this time capsule is ready to hit the road. While you might love showing this one off, the nimble handling combined with control of the four-speed manual transmission means you may never get off the back roads long enough to join the car show. The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owners manual. This special MG comes with such a unique story you can see everywhere, right down to the dealer tag still on the rear bumper. So when such a cool collectible is also quite affordable, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
