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

This 1980 Mercedes-Benz 450SL represents a V8-powered luxury drop-top that also has the right feeling of a true classic. So you can appreciate the old-money kind of appearance, the premium appearance of two roofs, and even some unique upgrades... especially when its all offered for a value price. We love the R107 SL because it has a robust kind of style. You see it in the well-creased lines and well-fitting body panels. This example even has some subtle but premium details like the full-length golden pinstripe, polished wheel arches, and later-style 15-inch alloy wheels. We like the look of black paint on a sophisticated classic like this. There is room for improvement with the finish if youre not looking for a patina kind of style. But we kind of like how that helps tell this Benzs story. Its currently on an actual mileage title, and we were even told it was put into storage for years. That makes for a premium classic with a barn-find vibe. And so the imperfections youll find inside and out add to the personality. And if you instead want to have a more traditional upper-class cruiser, the value price leaves room in your budget to get both personal and even more premium. The black folding soft top is a good pairing against the black paint, and the color-matched hardtop makes this look like a coupe. But these SLs are best as convertibles. So youll love going with no roof at all on every sunny day. In fact, the exteriors golden pinstripe goes quite well with the tan interior. And as you take a look at the leather upholstery, youll notice two very distinct features. First, they added a back seat just like the European versions of this car. Second, the front seats have been fully upgraded. And while the factory front buckets were comfortable, you can just tell that these really know how to hug your body. There are additional luxury features like cruise control power windows, provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing), and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo with CD changer. The engine bay has the correct and robust 4.5-liter SOHC motor with Bosch fuel injection. This was one of the largest Mercedes powerhouses of its era, and they made sure it had the right level of torque to move this convertible with authority. Its built for a grand touring kind of feeling, and so you have the right fundamentals, like power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel power disc brakes for easy any-time driving. Complete with the owners manual, this is the classic R107 SL that has an aged-in classic style that feels like a cool old-money kind of car. And the value price means you can transform it into a new money cruiser, too. Either way, its an icon with unique features that you know will be a lot of fun. Call today!!!
