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

T-tops, a loaded interior, and a terrific color combo this 1982 Datsun 280ZX already has an attractive performance classic car pedigree... and thats before you dig into the ideal mix of preservation and restoration on this loaded coupe. The factory-correct Cadet Blue Metallic is a great color that still looks good in modern times. Of course, it also helps that there was a professional respray later in life to make sure it has a nice gloss in the sunshine. Plus, the straightness of the panels give the paint a great canvas and reaffirms that this coupe has led a well-respected life so far. We are really beginning to appreciate how sporty these second-gen Z-cars look with their sharper edge profile and NACA scoop in the hood. This one does it particularly well, because it averaged less than 2,500 miles annually. And it also really gets its details right with the pieces like the shining factory alloys and even the Nissan fog light covers (remember Datsun was just transitioning the Nissan name into the market at this time.) We especially love the full-length gray pinstriping package that highlights the kick-up in the rear fender. When you open the door, youll see the other reason why the exterior pinstriping is so appealing. It unites the interior and exterior as the blue and gray presentation is fully realized inside. You get a pair of plush velour seats with a center console in-between. The sports steering wheel gives you a clear view to the large speedo and tach, so this is a great place for grand touring comfort. A premium sports car like this came with plenty of factory options like power windows, power locks, cruise control, and AM/FM/cassette stereo. Since the factory air conditioning is still blowing nice and cold, feel free to take out the T-tops long into the summer season. The fuel-injected 2.8-liter motor is why this one is always calling for the open road. This engine has a legendary smoothness and rev-happy nature that helped establish Datsun/Nissan as an exciting brand of cars. The way it fires up is yet another reminder of how well cared for this example has been. You can even spot great details like the movable service light and factory decals. It looks like theres a lot going on under the hood, but the SOHC inline-six is easy to spot and makes a wonderful baritone exhaust note thats a big part of this Zs allure. Out on the road you experience the harmony of the three-speed automatic transmission, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes. Its a true touring coupe. The Z-cars are coming into their own on the classic car market, so this is a great way to get an up-and-coming classic that you can also enjoy on the road today. Call now!
