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


A 1982 Porsche 911 SC Cabriolet in Great Shape! The SC still has one foot in the past with its short, classic body (about the size of a Mazda Miata) and air-cooled flat-six engine, and yet it also delivers relatively modern reliability and comfort features. The 3.0-liter Porsche flat-six engine spins quickly to the 6,250-rpm redline with an instant throttle response unknown in modern engines. 

Meanwhile, the Type 915 five-speed manual transmission is not a gearbox to be rushed. Shift too quickly, and you will be met with only recalcitrance and grinding. And just like the original Volkswagen Beetle, the SC has floor-mounted pedals, so those accustomed to firewall-mounted pedal boxes have to be ready to adjust. 

On the road, the unassisted rack-and-pinion steering is predictably heavy at parking-lot speed but becomes wonderfully light and communicative as you really get rolling. There&apos,s lots of caster and trail dialed into the steering geometry to keep this rear-engine package tracking straight on the highway, so expect some kickback over bumps and ruts. 

The combination of a short 89.4-inch wheelbase, trailing-arm rear suspension, and rearward weight distribution can deliver heart-pounding lift-throttle oversteer in the corners, just as you’ve heard. The big surprise is the wide power band and progressive compliance of the torsion-bar suspension make cross-country driving a pleasure.

The car was recently redone with a new manual top, new tires and new paint job by outstanding company. The engine has 64,000 original miles and was also recently redone.

This is the best early Porsche Cabriolet on the market at a reasonable price. The owner is interested in moving this car.
