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 exceptionally original 1981 Mazda RX7 is not just about recapturing the coupe that you wish you bought back in the day. These early Japanese sports machines are quickly climbing up the valuable collectable lists, which makes a surviving icon like this a solid buy, too. Mazda did their homework when designing the original RX7. It has the long hood that made the Corvette and Mustang into icons, but it also added European flair with a hint of the Porsche 944 in the execution. And of course, theres plenty of its cross-Japan rival Nissan Z in the mix, too. The result is a style thats unique but easy to love. Folding headlights, smoked taillights, and compact dimensions made it look ready to start carving corners, and it was mercifully free of styling gimmicks. Even the bumpers were very neatly integrated into the overall design. Sunrise Red is this cars factory original color, and we all know theres something timeless about a sports car finished in red. Not only is this the original application, but it still looks terrific because this car has averaged only around 2,100 miles annually. Just in case youve forgotten how Japan made their mark in the US, you need look no further than the quality in how the doors and hood fit, how flush the headlights are, and how snugly it seals up - even over thirty-five years later. And the level of preservation on this one is remarkable right down to the optional four-spoke factory alloy wheels. The interior is just as nicely presented as the exterior. The black bucket seats look great and were engineered to keep you comfortable. You can see from the included window sticker that plenty of desirable features came standard on the GS model. This includes a center console, quartz clock, electric rear defroster, and air conditioning. The huge sunroof removes almost like a targa top and stows in the trunk. The only real difference youll notice from factory spec is a neatly installed AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth for more modern tunes. This is a terrific total sports car experience as you grab the grippy factory steering wheel, and you can see the clearly marked instruments, including the Porsche-style center tach (and yes, that 7,000 RPM redline is there for a very good reason.) The RX7s real calling card was the revolutionary two-rotor Wankel engine. And this numbers-matching motor looks as fresh as the interior and exterior of this well-preserved machine. No pistons, no crankshaft, no valves just a pair of triangular rotors inside a beer-keg-sized housing. The design was compact, efficient, and could provide the same power as its six and eight-cylinder competitors. But its true hallmark was that it could happily spin to 7,000 RPM and beyond with incredible smoothness. In fact, if youve never experienced the difference of a rotary, you get to discover a whole new performance sound that comes from going beyond your normal rev range. This is a total package classic, and so sharp handling and front disc brakes for the backroads is also met with cruise control and a three-speed automatic transmission thats great for the grand tour. A survivor-style classic needs the right paperwork to back it up. So the sale comes with the original window sticker, bill of sale, owners manual, and warranty card. Its a total package gives you a rare opportunity to enter the crop of rapidly appreciating classics. Call today!!!
