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

1980 MGB ‘frame-off’ restoration  

·  All removable body panels were removed and everything that would unbolt from the chassis was removed. 

·  All rust was removed and all parts were stripped to bare metal.

·  All bolts, nuts and associated hardware were either replaced with new or were stripped and re-threaded or re-tapped.

·  All body panel interior surfaces and floor pan were coated with 3 coats of POR 15 rust preventive paint.

·  All interior panels that could not be reached directly were coated with Waxoyl spray rust preventive compound.

·  All exterior panels received 1 coat of self etching primer, 2 coats of high build urethane primer, 2 coats of 2K urethane color coat, and 4 coats of 2k urethane clear coat.

·  Professionally rebuild 3.1 liter GM V6 engine (160 HP) with customer headers and 4 barrel Edelbrock carburetor was installed.

·  Completely rebuilt 5 speed Tremec  manual transmission was installed.

·  Rebuilt MG 3.07:1 rear axle was installed. (This is essential to making the car a comfortable long distance cruiser)

·  Electrically controlled heater defroster was installed.

·  Interior was gutted and completely rebuilt:

o Mazda Miata bucket seats

o New sound deadener and carpet

o New interior body panels.

o New gauges (speedo, tach, oil pressure, water temperature)

o New arm rests and door releases.

o New convertible top

·  Rubber bumpers were replaced with Moss Motoring chrome bumpers including all additional body panels to make the car equivalent to pre-1973 chrome bumper MGBs

·  New exhaust system — muffler, pipes and resonator

·  Rebuilt original MGB rallye wheels

·  New Michelin tires

·  AM/FM/CD/USB iPod compatible radio

 The engine has less than 200 miles since rebuild.


Note that ‘frame off’ is in quotes because the vehicle is semi-monocoque design with no real separate frame.
