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 1980 Mercedes-Benz 280SL has a sleeker style, both tops, and is one of the great Euro-style cars that will always have a story to tell. So its amazing that this much luxury and distinction is also so affordable. Yes, you read this right, it is a 280SL! This model designation of the R107 Mercedes-Benzes was never officially sold in the USA, so they are a rare sight on our side of the Atlantic. Aside from the ultra-cool factor that this car gets to officially share a badge designation with other classic SL cars (Pagoda anyone?), there are some distinctive touches on this import. It instantly announces its European style with the Euro-spec flush-mounted headlights. It also has European bumpers that hug the front and rear of the car much better than the U.S.-spec models. More than just unique, this car is attractive for its elegance. The Champagne paint is a driver-quality application that retains a good shine to show off the crisp details of the well-fitting panels. So it makes the right presentation for a cruiser. There are also thoughtful details. For example, this one will always look attractive with the color-matched hardtop in place, but thanks to the brown pinstripe, the brown folding roof has added coordinated distinction, too. If you like the tone of the brown soft top against the champagne paint, then youre going to love the look of this car with the top down. The factory brown interior is the kind of color thats popular on brand new cars, and so it helps to give this one a more timeless sense of style. Power windows, cruise control, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input deliver a cruiser that feels great for two. The odometer does represent its full actual mileage, and this is a value price for such a distinct car. So you may choose to use some of your leftover budget to update some pieces or recharge the air conditioning. But overall, this is a well-presented drivers classic. Especially with premium touches like how glossy wood on the center console goes well with the upgraded shifter knob and sports steering wheel. Under the hood is a distinct motor. The 2.8-liter straight six for the 280SL was the only time they offered a dual overhead camshaft engine in the R107 series. Combined with fuel injection, this means you have an engine that is quite eager off the line with low-end power. Thats nice for driving in-town. Plus, the four-speed automatic transmission gives you good radios to enjoy it all. And features like the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes are great features for enjoying this premium droptop any time. Everyone loves to see a classic Mercedes R107-series SL. Now is your opportunity to own one that not only turns heads, but also gets the enthusiasts talking. Call today!!!
