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

1983 DATSUN 280ZX Automatic with T Tops - Less than 120k milesVIN: JN1HZ04S2DX576791Selling my 1983 280zx garage kept weekend cruiser. I'd call this a 99% car. Probably belongs in a showroom, but loves to be on the road. Engine wise this thing will go forever. Seriously, all you'll ever be replacing on this girl is old dried out rubber trim. Almost everything cosmetic works on this car too. Pop up antenna, T Tops have VERY little leaking, original interior with NO rips, Dash cover and Dash has very moderate cracking, always stored inside. Compression is excellent 175+. Fires up instantly. Very little rust, none visible, all coated. 20+ year old paint job in incredible condition for age, few small scratches. You'll never see this color anywhere else and pictures don't do this thing justice. Only thing not working is the heater core but you're not allowed to drive this anywhere you need heat. A/C blows ice cold. Part is cheap for heat but install requires entire dash removal, not worth. Selling because I broke too many necks cruising around town. Also, my fiance just bought a jeep so I don't need my own fun car :( I'm not happy about it.This car is all original and numbers matching besides the following $6500 in upgrades and stock replacements put on by my local Z shop, ZFever in Tampa, specifications listed and shown in pictures:Cam, Headers, and Exhaust I had put on this last year- Full tune up- New wheel bearings, pretty much anything rubber under the car- ball joints, tie rods, struts, - New stock suspension for ride quality- Engine mounts fortified - New brakes and rotors- Engine bay painted, new gunmetal valve cover- Brighter headlights- All lights inside, outside work- 1.5" hub centric wheel spacers for a little more handling and visuals- Louver's are removable and stock - Have aftermarket NRG steering wheel, original air intake, etc. in a box, never throw anything away- Original factory BRA in perfect condition- Original T Top Bags in perfect condition- Original T Top Clip on Sun Shades- Original Tool Kit/Jack- 280zx Owner's Jacket from 1980s- 280zx model car unpainted in box- Black wheels are stock just plasti-dipped black, easily washed off if desired.I'm always improving and upgrading, conditioning, touching up, so ask what else I've been up to since the ad. Will work with any shippers/delivery can be done for a price.
