Vintage Japanese Cars: Nissan's Online Heritage Collection

If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.

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

A nice car either 'as is' or with the benefit of further work (primarily aesthetic).

Older paint, looks a bit better in the photos then close up. But amply presentable as a 'user' road car. And sufficiently clean for a low key show.. Very good chrome bumpers, very good convertible top and tonneau, interior is quite nice in Camel, and with what appears to be a new wood dashboard and a new wood steering wheel. Dash pad and underneath panels are all excellent with no cracks leading one to suspect it might very well have been garaged much of its life. And only 86,000 miles since new (averaging 1,700 miles a year)

Underneath, original floors are excellent, no signs of patching or repair, no undercoating, no cracks, very well preserved as is the chassis.

Test drive: strong and smooth performance, zero smoke, 75psi oil pressure when warm, no rear suspension clunks, quiet valves, carbs seems to be in very good condition, no issues with clutch, gearbox, brakes, steering, etc

AND............has perfect working overdrive, the most expensive and desirable single option on these cars. Provides a very usable 'fifth gear' for highway cruising.

Wiring and electrics appear to be in good condition, everything works (original radio, wipers, lights, gauges, etc) and it was pleasurable in our road tests.

Since we are dealing with an overdrive car that is excellent underneath, sure, a repaint (in one's choice of color as a color change would be easy) would enhance the car. And perhaps some engine bay detailing. But for what is is, a dandy TR6 capable of providing many years of reliable service..

We now offer financing at competitive rates for all vehicles in our inventory. Inquire for details.
