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
A good Benz convertible at this price is always a great find. After all, this 1995 Mercedes-Benz SL500 is sleek loaded, and comes with the right extras, including both tops. It all makes for a V8 grand touring machine that will always make people assume you paid much more than this value price asks. The R129 era of the Mercedes SL is arguably its best. It takes its predecessors lessons of building a hardy luxury convertible, and then it adds in a unique and sleek style all its own. But because it keeps the bright/wide grille and big tri-star up front, its also unmistakable part of over a centurys worth of lineage. The two-tone black and silver is an outstanding color combo when you want to look timelessly upper-class. Flared fenders, good-looking 16-inch alloys, and panels that retain a precision fit are all part of a package that give this both sporty style and prestige. And speaking of prestige, the optional color-matched hardtop give this the distinctive look of a sports coupe. Even the power folding soft top has a nice look as the black canvas looks good against the black upper paint. If you like the way either black roof looks, then youll certainly love this with no roof at all. Thats because you also have a full black interior. So this one has a dark sophistication no matter how you decide to drive it. Supple leather on the bucket seats, plush carpeting, and nice wood on the center console and doors all make sure this lives up to your expectation for a coddling Mercedes. Plus, there are all the best features, power seats with drivers memory, power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, tilt/telescope steering column, rear defroster, cruise control, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (currently needs a service) that blows through a fully automatic climate control system. They even upgraded the factory stereo to an AM/FM/CD unit with a USB and Bluetooth for the best in modern driving music. This one straddles the line between a true classic age and a more modern machine, and so you also get the best in safety features. It includes dual front airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a roll bar that automatically deploys when it senses danger. We also love these Mercedes for whats under the hood. The 5.0-liter V8 is a fuel-injected 32-valve DOHC unit, and so its 315 horsepower has a versatile delivery thats both quick off the line and has big legs at highway speeds. This all-around powerful player is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. This has been geared for both smooth kick-downs into performance as well as easy overdrive long-distance comfort. The fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes are all engineered to accompany this versatile feeling. So youre at home on both twisty backroads and highways you want to treat as autobahns. Theres a lot to love about this loaded V8 Mercedes SL...and what youll love the most is the affordable price. So dont miss your chance, call today!
