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
For the first time, the V8 engines were fitted to the SL-Class. Production from 1971 to 1989. The engine options were updated in 1980 for the 1981 model year with new aluminum V8 engines from W126 S-Class introduced in 1979 while the 2.8-liter six-cylinder inline engine carried over. It was updated again in 1985 for the 1986 model year with the new 3.0-liter six-cylinder inline engine from W124 and enlarged 4.2- and 5.5-liter V8 engines while the 5.0-liter V8 engine was carried over. The R107 received its first update in 1985 with a deeper front air dam, a revised brake system with larger disc and four-caliber brakes, a drivers side airbag (standard for the US market and an extra-cost option for the European market), and, the European market, catalysator option. The 5-mph bumpers and four round sealed-beam headlamps fitted to the US models remained unchanged despite the revised US FMVSS regulations that allowed the 2.5-mph bumpers and form-fitting headlamps, starting with the 1982 and 1983 model years respectively. The US model received the third brake lamp mounted on the trunk in 1986.
