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

This 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL has an awesome color combo, fuel-injected V8 power, and both roofs. Plus, this has a nice mix of long-term care and a price that lets you individualize a timeless symbol of luxury motoring. The has the factory-correct Nautical Blue Metallic. After all, we love these in red or silver, but this blue looks both rare and regal. It shows all the right signs of being the factory application, and it continues to have an impressive shine in the sunlight - exactly what you want on a convertible. You also get the choice of a color-matched hardtop or a darker blue soft top for a very European kind of style. The presentation is not perfect, but you can really tell the difference in care that comes from a three-owner car where the last one has even kept it for over 20 years. And averaging only about 1,600 miles annually means it has left the driveway far less than its contemporaries. So the chrome shines nicely, the glass is clean, and the body panels line up with that desirable German precision. Even on a car with two tops, we bet your favorite way to enjoy this Mercedes is with no roof at all. After all, you get the great look of deep tan against the dark blue exterior. These R107 SLs are all about the grand touring experience. So you get comfortable leather seats, plenty of interior space for two, and the kind of ample luggage space thats for more than just your weekend bags. And the right Mercedes SL gives that ideal drivers car feeling. Its not an all-out sports car, but rather a mix of supple and confidence. Its in the grip of the steering wheel, the crispness of the gauges, and vintage details, like the Becker Grand Prix stereo. The 3.8-liter fuel-injected V8 under the hood has a very stock look, and its exceptionally clean to reflect the low odometer. And not only do these have a hardy nature, but there has also been the right care, including all the seals replaced in 2002. Out the road, the four-speed automatic shifts with smooth authority all the way into overdrive comfort. 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. There are areas to address on this car, like the soft top, seat covers, passenger-side window, air conditioning, and other details. Its not necessarily about expecting perfection when buying a luxury car at this price point. Instead, the attraction is getting one of the best-built convertibles from the last half-century and knowing that Mercedes and the aftermarket keep this quite well stocked. So you have an impressive car from day one that has a quality feel from proper care, and the value price allows room in your budget to get the fresher components that matter most to you. So if youre looking for a drivers icon that you can personalize, this SL is a truly ideal classic. Call today!!!
