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.

Classic Car Overview

1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Roadster For consignment, a 1986 Mercedez-Benz 560SL roadster that was carefully repainted in 2019. During that time, seals were replaced and at the same time, new Mercedes Benz wheels were installed. Its not a color we see every day and if youre in the market for a well-sorted, two-topped 560SL that has always been serviced by either the dealer or a Mercedes master technician, this might just be the one! Exterior Diamond Blue Metallic is aptly named as it shines with the luster of a highly rated gemstone. This is a body style that remained virtually unchanged from 1972 to 1989 and we know why. Its well balanced, sleek, and practical without losing sportiness. Our examples chrome bumpers and trim are in immaculate condition including the chrome side mirrors, door handle plates, and ribbons that run along the hardtop. The 15-inch wheels do indeed look new and flank a distinctive ribbed rocker panel. The removable hardtop is in fantastic condition and the car will come with a dolly for storing the top when you opt for the soft top, or no top at all! Interior Simple, gray door panels welcome occupants and are composed of MB-Tex, a vinyl-based material that was manufactured to closely resemble leather but without the high price. Gray buckets seats with good side bolstering and headrests are amazingly comfortable. Robust hardware accompanies the seats in polished metal. We note some wear on the entry contact point of the drivers seat. The rear shelf is carpeted in gray and provides plenty of cargo space. The airbag equipped steering wheel is appropriately sporty, and the gauges are black faced and easy to read. In true European fashion, idiot lights have graphics on their face before they light up. Burl wood applique backs the center stack where a rebuilt AM/FM/Cassette radio resides. Wood continues on the center console where the stout shifter lives in front of the window switches. Plush low pile gray carpet covers the floor, protected by Mercedes branded carpeted mats which have absorbed the wear. A high quality car means high quality features and the headliner of the removable top is soft and clean, not bare metal. The trunk is lined in plush gray carpet and is very nice. Drivetrain A 5.6 liter SOHC V8 is under the long low hood and is rated at 227 horsepower. It has the Bosch KE-Jetronic fuel injection and moves via a 4-speed automatic transmission sending power to the rear axle and 2.47 gears. Mercedes doesnt mess around, so power disc brakes are found on all four corners! Gazing into the engine bay, we find a clean engine and accessories in the typical crowded layout. Undercarriage Fine and dandy underneath in drive quality condition. Efficient use of space and lots of flat belly surfaces. The single exhaust runs through a uniquely flat, wide, and shielded portion, then splits into two pipes before entering the original muffler and finally exiting discreetly under the rear bumper. Theres a little bit of residual oil under the engine but nothing of major concern. Meanwhile, coil springs occupy the independent suspension on the front and back of the car. Drive-Ability The solid thud of the door closing is a primer for the anticipation of a great driving experience. This blue diamond fired up and rolled onto the test loop surefooted and stable. We forget how powerful they are but are reminded each time we get behind the wheel. Theres plenty of horses on tap and the low center of gravity provides for a sportscar like drive, however we note perhaps a bit more slop in the steering than normal. All functions work as intended save for the air conditioning, but as our consignor notes, the AC has a slow leak that will need to be addressed. The SLs combine comfort, good power, and luxury in a maneuverable car thats not too big and not too small. Goldilocks might say, this one is just right! . Well dont get caught sleeping because this one likely wont last long. Its a beautiful example of a long lasting and somewhat legendary German design.
