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

HIGHLIGHTS: Beautifully maintained, classic 380SL with just two owners since new! This iconic piece of German engineering is in fantastic shape showing proof of excellent care. BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this 380SL is clean and straight, as one would expect for a well-maintained car of this caliber. While it shows some minor signs of use here and there, this car looks to have been meticulously taken care of all of its life. All emblems are in place and have a brilliant shine! The body on this car is in beautiful condition, and must be seen in person to be fully appreciated. PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: This 380SL appears to still be wearing its original paint. While golds and browns may not always have the impact of a more vibrant color, the Sahara Gold is a classic color and it works well with the interior color to give this car that classy, elegant Mercedes-Benz look. The paint is in nice condition with a deep and glossy finish, but it is showing some checking that is common on Mercedes products of this era. INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Much like the exterior of this car, the interior is in remarkable condition for the age of the vehicle. While some areas show signs of age, the interior is in great condition! The tan MB Tex is the perfect contrast to the exterior color, and gives the interior of this car a unique look. As always with MB Tex, it has held up very well over the years! MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is the buzzy little 3.8L Mercedes-Benz V8! While this car is no 560SL, the 380SL cruises along happily with this little V8. The engine in this car purrs like any good Mercedes-Benz should, and provides more than adequate power for a car this size. It feels very solid to drive, and handles like only a German touring car can. This car is a blast! WHAT YOULL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The beautiful warm colors! Plus it has a trolley for the hard top! WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Theres not much to dislike here. DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The air conditioning isnt blowing cold, and there is a leak from the washer fluid reservoir. Also, the radio doesnt seem to be functional. WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether youre a long-time enthusiast looking to add to your Mercedes-Benz collection, or a newcomer looking for an affordable entry-level vehicle, this 380SL would be an excellent selection.
