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

1990 Volkswagen Vanagon Multivan - its basically a Carat with a pop-top.
Multivans are high-end Westfalias. They are more rare and more utilitarian than the campers with kitchens. This one has
an aftermarket Engel swing motor fridge, which can be taken out for more storage/passenger space. It has power
windows, power door locks, and power mirrors.
This is a California vehicle. Weve recently moved to the Lake Tahoe mountains and the vehicle is just not practical up
here, so, sadly, I need to sell her (my wife named her Vana).
