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

1981 Mercedes Benz 240D Mercedes-Benz introduced the W123 four-door executive car in January 1976 to replace the W115. The overall dimensions and wheelbase were lengthened, and styling was updated to a less angular more contemporary look. The new look included round head lights with inboard fog lamps in all models except the 280 and 280E which had large rectangular headlights. Later the European models were all changed to the rectangular headlights. North American models retained the round complement. In 1980/81 the carbureted 280 was replaced with the fuel-injected 280E. W123 introduced many innovations in both safety and styling including ABS brakes, retractable steering columns and airbags for the driver. This Light Ivory Mercedes is an outstanding all original survivor. The interior looks like it has never even been driven and still has that distinctive new Mercedes leather smell to it. The 4-speed and diesel combination make this a smooth driving classic that could be daily driven. The value on the iconic W123 Mercedes body type continues to go up, especially on a survivor like this. Exterior Light Ivory in good condition with very little fading, only seen on MB logo on front grille with some blue missing within the letters. Chrome is all in nice condition with no pitting or rust. Door close with the MB thud as expected, and headlights, signals and tail markers are clean and clear. Interior Palomino in MB Tex is covering all the seating surfaces and door panels. Interior is in excellent condition, dash instrumentation is clear and clean and all functioning, and original. A 4-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, cruise control, power brakes (4-wheel disc), power locks, and an upgrade to a Becker sound system (cassette) has been dealer installed. Carpeting is pristine, and headliner presents in very good condition. The trunk has carpeting too and is clean. Drivetrain A 4-cylinder fuel injected 2.4 Liter OHV engine, is mounted in the original engine bay (unrestored and good). As noted, the 4-speed manual transmission (shifted on the floor) is mounted to the back of the diesel mill. Undercarriage For as far as the eye can see, miles of rust-free metal, and quality heavy build parts. Mercedes is known for their over engineering, and it is plenty evident under here. A very clean original condition 58,000+ mile car and based on its condition I personally would believe it. A chance for someone to have a nice classic daily driver, where its only downfall is slower acceleration with the fuel efficient and bullet proof diesel. But hey you have to give something to get something, and you can always change your shift points on the RPM dial!
