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

The MGB is a sports car that MG introduced to replace the MGA in 1962. The roadster was the first body style to be released and was a pure two seater. By making better use of space the MGB was able to offer more passenger and luggage space than the MGA while being 3 inches shorter overall. The suspension was also softer, giving a smoother ride and the larger engine gave a slightly higher top speed. Wind-up windows were standard, a parcel shelf was fitted behind the seats and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. The MGB's performance was considered brisk at the time of its introduction with a 1798cc engine rated at 95 hp that was capable of a 0–60 mph time of just over 11 seconds. The MGB was one of the first cars to feature controlled crumple zones designed to protect the driver and passenger in an impact. This particular example has 93,277 original miles and was repainted in its original color of Pageant Blue some time ago and it is showing its age. With the exception of the heater everything is working as it should. It has an upgraded Alpine stereo with a USB input and newer speakers. The original cockpit cover and spare are included as shown in the pix. It runs great and sounds awesome with its newer performance exhaust. We would consider this an average car and as such would appraise it at $12,150. We know the market is soft and does not justify the appraisal so we have priced this as a below average car for a quick sale!
