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

One of the best conversion we ever did.............what came in as a rust free, ugly, gutless, and ill handling ugly ducking has emerged as an exquisite very usable classis sports car.

Excellent body with very nice tartan red paint, a complete chrome bumper conversion.....removed the ugly and heavy rubber bumpers, added new sheet metal, lights, eliminated and plated over the holes for the side lights, fitted a Mk I grille, new chrome bumpers, lowered the car to the pre 1975 ride height, fitted a modern 32/36 Weber DGV carb and improved exhaust manifold...........NOW a great MGB. Much better handling, performance, and (of course) exterior appearance..

See, here is the situation.....other than those three tiny issues (bumpers, etc.) the later MGBs were superior cars. Power assist disc brakes, front AND rear sway bars, rust proofed, bigger gauges, better engines and transmissions, stronger back axles, better cooling systems, electronic ignitions, etc. Reliable, fun to drive, easy to service, and with a style that defies aging.

Hence our elaborate conversion.

But on this car we went further...note the custom dying of the dash surround, console, etc. so that it all matches. And with leather seats, modern stereo, new top and tonneau, carpeted trunk, and wire wheels with 185/70 radials, this is one fabulous MGB.

And yes, perfect compression and oil pressure, zero smoke, rebuilt front end, excellent wiring, ready to drive anywhere. And, isn't that what is all about?
