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

The third generation of the Type 2/3, otherwise known as the Volkswagen Bus or Van was built from 1979-1992. Although the rear engine designed lasted through its entirety, the air-cooled engine was phased out for a water-cooled boxer engine in 1983. The vans are extremely versatile and have been everything from fire-trucks to wreckers to the all so common campers that have also come in a variety of forms from, home-built to major manufacturers. This Vanagon L had been converted from passenger to a camper with pop up, stove, fridge and sink that all work properly. It is a Southern California vehicle with absolutely zero rust with some paint fade. It has great tires and brakes and runs excellently. It was just driven here from California with not one issue. It has electrical hook up for campsites or a generator. Ok, now for the bonus. This van comes with a complete Subaru Legacy 2.2 Liter engine conversion kit. Everything you will need to do a swap with wiring harness and blue prints. Although this Van runs excellent, the power for a stock VW van is a 67 HP with 97 Ft. lb of torque and with the Subaru swap you would increase your power to 130Hp with 137 ft lb of torque. This vehicle has been used but not abused and is clean. It comes with a new stereo with remote, USB and MP3. It also comes with the official VW factory repair manual and Subaru Haynes repair manual.
