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

Time to get your hands on a limited edition droptop before the market for Japanese classics gets any hotter. This 1985 Toyota Celica GTS convertible is a survivor-grade example that will provide you with plenty of driving smiles and a ton of growing admiration. The design of the third-generation Celica has matured into a terrific overall presentation. And you understand that exceptionally well thanks to meticulous care to this example. After all, the angular front end wouldnt be so attractive if the headlight doors didnt still fit flush. The dip in the trunk line needs to be crisp to really get noticed. Plus, the flared wheel arches and large factory GTS wheels really gave Toyota a sporty presence in the 80s. The way the red paint still shines today (believed to be the original application,) it will fill you with pride on every sunny day cruise. But even on the gray days, the black folding roof is a great complement to the trim, front end, and bumpers to almost give this one a two-tone effect. The roof is what makes this rare. The convertible was a specially completed by American Sunroof Corporation (ASC) for Toyota, and they only offered it on the final two years of this generation. It was an expensive option, and so its estimated that around only 4,500 were produced in total. Toyota gave this Celica GTS a unique-looking bucket seat interior, and so we are glad to see it so well preserved on this low mileage example. In fact, it doesnt even look like this convertible was ever left out in the sun. More than just distinctive, this is a comfortable cloth setup that comes loaded. Power locks, tilt wheel, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo w/equalizer give this correct interior a luxury feeling. Plus, you have power windows and a power convertible top. That means you can go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving your drivers seat. And because the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a, you can comfortably enjoy top-down motoring all through the summer. The 2.4-liter motor is believed to be original to the car. These fuel-injected powerhouses have the kind of bulletproof reputation that is the backbone of Toyota especially because we even have good maintenance records on this one. Toyota fans know this model as the last of the rear-wheel drive Celicas, and this was its final year. They love the nimble steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the GTSs fully-independent suspension. Plus, with cruise control, power steering, and four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive, this is a terrific all-around cruiser. The sale comes with the maintenance records and the owners manual. So as you can see, this is a complete and well-preserved survivor thats loaded with all the best features. And if you act fast, it can all be yours for quite a nice price. Call today!!!
