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.
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.

Sold new in Carlsbad, CA. by Hoehn Motors-Mercedes Benz. Final model year USA 450SL Just arrived in this rare color scheme, Thistle Green over Cream Beige Leather. Beautiful looks and extensive service history. We have a 3 ring folder full of records, spanning 4 decades back to new purchase in 1980, that has been preserved through prior ownership.
Paint shows bright shine and luster. A good quality respray was conducted by prior ownership in the factory color. A nice alternative to your typical colors, Thistle Green is impressive to the eye.
All orignal MB glass. The brightwork shows well with a few close up nicks.
Cream beige leather interior is an excellent contrast inside the cabin. The seats, being original to the car, show patina age and some tears. We've decided to leave the original leather seats as is for the next owner to decide. It still has that original Mercedes look and smell. Although age and wear shows it's quite useable and has that "broken in feel" like a great pair of white aged high-quality leather sneakers that look better with age. A new set of seat covers can be purchased through our German interiors vendor for a brand new look. Full installation of seat covers is also available, ask for details. The original dash-pad shows no damage. The wood still has nice deep color and presents well. Door cards look to be in excellent condition. The matching lighter cream stock carpet shows well.
The original Becker AM/FM radio with cassette player is currently not working. We will try and source the issue.
The AC is not currently operating and will be checked further.
The brown soft top was replaced according to records in 2001. The canvas shows very well as it appears to have been sparsely used.
Still wearing the factory issued 14 inch Bundt style alloy wheels in nice condition. Newer correctly sized BF Goodrich tires showing negligible wear.
Tidy trunk area, light color original carpet is good. Spare tire well storage area is very clean.
Full Handbooks, data card and build sheet. 2 original keys including valet key.
Spare tire, tool roll, jack, tire iron and convertible tools all present.
