If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
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.

Originally imported by first ownership from Germany into Georgia, USA in 1985 with the most recent ownership in San Antonio, Texas and Southern California. This 280SL 107 European Import was originally designated to the Saarbruecken branch in Germany. Produced in far less numbers than other 107 models the 280SL topped out production at approximately 25,000 units between the 1974 and 1985.
Original dash pad shows minor wear. Under previous ownership, the following interior items were refurbished: Brand new period correct carpet throughout entire cabin in off white color. New Lloyd floor mats. Brand new cream beige leather seats. Rear factory kinder seat was removed and that surface area was re-carpeted. The kinder seat was not kept. Upon our acquisition the shift consul burl wood was completely and professionally restored to its deep cherry original color by highly reputable Madera Concepts in California.
The paint shines nicely. Panel fitment is precise and the body throughout is very straight.
The blue German canvas soft top is in good shape without tears or rips and shows bright color.
AC has been converted to 134 system and is fully recharged blowing cold air at proper fan speeds. There is a Kenwood head unit with AM/FM HD radio, USB, Blue tooth, cell phone connectivity and a few other modern options. It is hooked up through the front speakers and audio is correct with factory set up.
Delightful high revving 110 inline 6 cylinder motor that was not available in the USA. 4 speed automatic gearbox. It is highly desirable to pilot if you are not familiar and positively changes the handling and feel due to less weight load. It translates to an extremely nimble performing drive quality. Firm power steering without play. Very responsive throttle, solid driveline and straight full power at all speeds. The gearbox shifts crisp through all gears.
Fitted with correctly sized factory recco'd 195/70/14 tires. There are 4 color matched Mercedes steel disc wheels that give a vintage early 107SL look.
Original Huff key, partial books and manuals, tool roll spare tire and jack.
