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.

Classic Car Overview
The car has been serviced and repaired at Werner's Mercedes in Salt Lake City for the last two decades. I have extensive records dating back 20 years, and spotty records prior to that. The engine was replaced with a used one in September 2015. At that time, the car had 241,255 miles on it. The replacement motor was used, but the repair receipt does not indicate its mileage.

I've invested about $12K in this car. I know that I won't recover that in this sale. For those of you who appreciate the reliability of a W123 diesel, this would be a solid purchase. I'm happy to send the repair/maintenance records.
