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 1981 Mercedes-Benz 380SL is a well-kept classic that also has distinctive upgrades. So if you like V8 prowess, an optional hardtop, a loaded A/C interior, distinctive style, and a premium feel, this classic Benz is exactly what needs to be in your garage. The R107 generation of Mercedes SL is a true legend today. The company built them well with sturdiness and quality that makes new cars jealous. Thats why the body lines continue to look so good even as it has matured into true classic car status. The Signal Red paint is the factory-correct color, and it continues to have a nice vibrant style. Those looking for perfection may invest in details or a respray, but we like how it looks great out in the sunshine and has an overall attitude that wont make you nervous to leave the garage. Theres some nice added flair with extra polish on the wheel wells and a golden pinstripe. And the upgraded wheels seem to unite both nicely with plenty of shine and golden Mercedes emblems at the center. But what people will really be pointing out are the flush-fitting Euro-style headlights. They make the car distinctive while also following tradition. You have the choice of a red color-matched hardtop or you can have a smart-looking black convertible roof. But if youre like us, youll be enjoying this SL the most with no roof at all. And the interior is great to share with the world because its both vintage and attractive. It includes glossy wood trim, a smooth dash, and a working Becker Grand Prix stereo. And the lambs wool seat covers are a great addition that fits with the era so well. Its unknown if the odometer reflects the full mileage, but the real story with this car is the level of care and attention that keeps it ageless. We even have receipts within the last few years showing a nice investment in key luxury features like the power windows, power locks, and the R134a air conditioning. And just like the exterior, this one has a touch of Euro-cool style with the added back seat that was never offered in the USA. This was the first year for the 380SL in North America, and the alloy block cars are often sought-after. This 3.8-liter V8 is particularly desirable because there have been good investments in its maintenance, and there are receipts going back nearly 25 years to prove it. This even includes a rebuild of the fuel injection system only about a year ago. So the whole engine bay has the clean look of a well-respected car, and they made sure it also runs as good as it looks. And driving is what this R107 is all about. Its a terrific grand touring cruiser with power steering, cruise control, and a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. And features like the fully independent suspension and four-wheel power disc brakes make it feels quite confident without jeopardizing the luxury ride. The sale comes complete with the owners manual packet and maintenance records. This is the well-respected SL that also wants to be your ideal classic cruiser. So dont miss this deal. Call today!!!
