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

Timeless colors, a robust design, and the overall quality of a Mercedes - thats what attracts you to this 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL even before you check out the desirable features (like both tops) and the value price. The long hood, bright chrome bumpers, and iconic baroque alloy wheels give this convertible a bit more substance than the average drop-top. Its why the R107 Mercedes SL is often more desirable than even some classics that cost more. These were also built to have a little extra sophistication. Thats why they not only came with one of the best snug-fitting soft tops of its day, but also some lucky people opted for a color matched hardtop like this one. German cars always look good in gray, but this has something more to it. The factory-correct Anthracite Gray Metallic has a bit of a gold undertone. This may even be the original application. So its not perfect but it does show some of the resilience that you get in a quality-built Mercedes. Plus, that hint of gold coordinates nicely with the tan pinstripe and tan interior. While we like the look of either roof option, we all know a convertible like this was meant to be open to the world. Thats why the golden-like tan goes so well with the golden undertones of the exterior paint. And as true Mercedes, it comes with all the features you want. This includes power windows, wood trimmed console, contoured high-back bucket seats, and original R12 air conditioning (will need servicing and converted to R-134a to blow cold again.) And the AM/FM/CD stereo means you have upgraded driving music for you top-down road trips. The 3.8-liter fuel-injected V8 under the hood is believed to be original to the car. It has that ideal stock look, right down to the decals. Dont forget the 4 speed automatic with overdrive. There are even the right signs of good investments along the way, including what appears newer exhaust. The fully independent suspension understands a nice balance between luxury and performance thats entertaining on a twisty country road. So this is the perfect weekend getaway car. In fact, the miles are effortless thanks to features like power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes. Complete with owners manual packet, this is a classic Mercedes convertible with a style that never gets old. So dont miss this deal, call today!
