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.
Classic Car Overview
This 1985 Porsche 911 Carrera with approx. 140,000 miles is a factory Turbo Look (M491) model, finished in black exterior over black interior which features the fender flares, front and rear spoilers, suspension, and brakes from the contemporary 911 Turbo. Member of the PCA, I acquired the Porsche a couple of years ago. Power comes from the 3.2L flat-six, which is mated to a 5-speed 915 manual transaxle. Only 213 M491 Coupes made for the United States for the 1985 model year.
The Porsche is in great condition with more than $12k spent on maintenance and upgrades under my ownership, including a transmission rebuild prior to listing for sale, re-upholster black leather of the front seats, replacement of the pedal bushings with bronze bushings, addition of Wevo shifter and Steve Wong chip. The previous owner also upgraded the stereo, short shift kit, and upgraded AC to R134a. This M491 Carrera has a Porsche CoA and a folder of records.
The 3.2L M930/21 flat-six made 207 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque when new. Engine pulls strong and compression tests were excellent when I purchased the cars a couple of years ago leading the mechanic to believe the car has had at least a top end rebuild in its history.
The car came very loaded with factory options include sport seats, a locking differential, sunroof, and cruise control. The full list of Factory Options included:
018: Sport steering wheel with elevated hub
158: Radio “Monterrey”
220: Locking differential
341: Central locking system
383: Sport seat - Left
387: Sport seat – Right
424: Automatic Heating Control
454: Automatic speed control
491: Turbo look, also called Super-sport
533: Alarm System
M491 cars also received 930 front wheel hubs, rear torsion bar tube, suspension arms, and brakes.
As detailed in the Carfax, the odometer was replaced during the life of car, therefore mileage is not fully accurate but careful consideration puts the mileage conservatively at 139k. The car does have some minor imperfections including minor paint chips.
