Parting OUT. The Shell and Motor are SOLD.
After much thought I have decided to sell my Baby. I started this build about 5 years ago and it took over 3 years of saving, spending and slaving over each detail of this build. I have met alot of really cool Scirocco Owners and I hope I can come back to the Scirocco world in the near future. I am selling my car because I have too much going on right now and it's really beginning to be too much.
Lets start from the beginning. The car was originally purchased for $2000 in running condition.
The car was completely stripped of all rubber, glass, wires for the $5000 paint job. After paint I installed a new headliner ($350 w/reciept) , all new rubber and a brand new Pilkington windshield ($275 w/reciept) and new rubber all around the car from Vintage Rubber. ($500). The duckbill look like new with no cracks ($300), the Euro Bumpers were almost new ($1000) The H1 and H4 head lights are new ($250), The taillights were NOS ($200)
Bilstein front Race Struts V36-0103 ($579.90 w/receipt) w Bonrath strut towers ($150) Bilstein Rear with ground control ($300) Race springs with 400/300 spring rate ($200) No Sway bars
Under the hood:
02A 5 speed manual trans with Peliquin Limited Diff. (Paid 2251.97 w/reciept). It was completely build by Kraftwerks. This trans maybe has 500 miles on it.
1.8t abf from 99 passat. (paid $1500) This engine only had 35,000 miles when I got it and I only put 500 miles on it. The car runs on the original passate computer and and wiring harness. Each connection has been soldered for reliability. The turbo was purchased new ($900) and only has 500 miles on it. Turbo pipes all custom ($300) Intercooler 29x5.75x3 Spearco Race ($325 w/reciept), Downpipe is a Techonics 1.8t a1 for Scirocco1 Noncat ($393.50 w/reciept) Exhaust 2.5 Early a-1 aluminized w/borla muffler ($371.50 w/reciept) Alternator is the new serpentine setup with the flat belt drive ($150). Brand new air meter 037-906-461-cx (252.98 w/receipt), this car has the aftermarket front reinforcement bar ($150) This bar keeps the front valence from breaking from all of the power and the car generates. WRD O2A motor mounts for A1 Scirocco and mechanical Slave Kit ($649.36 w/reciept) New Large radiator with aftermarket fans. ($200) New water pump. Cable shifter for 02A trans ($150) ECS Tuning Stage 1 Clutch kit w/lw steel flywheel ($429.68 w/reciept) 11 inch brake kit that was installed 2 months ago with only 20 miles on the front breaks and pads ($250) New Bigcrank battery purchased on 7/2/10 ($3.47 w/receipt)
Recaro NOS Seats from 20 years ago. They came new in the box but they are period correct. Recaro/scirocco seat tracks The interior is complete with carpet clean dash with a limited amount of cracks 5 vdo gauges. No rear seats
This car has been garaged everyday for the last 5 years since I purchased it. Like I said I may have put 500 miles on it since I got it running. This car only gets better with age. You will not find another car for sale like this for a long time. Last time I checked I put $20,000 into it.
This is just the big stuff that I can remember. There aren't too many builds with almost all receipts and a full record of the build day by day year by year. Alot of love went into this labor. I built this car the way I did because I thought I was going to keep this car forever and give it to my son. (I'll build a new one in a few years.)
The only thing I can say bad about the car is it might need a new starter because sometime the solenoid sticks. The car starts like a new car on the first try even after the car sits for 3 months it starts on the first try. The whole car is in A condition. It's almost show quality. But I didn' want to built it too nice where I didn't want to drive it.
If you are a serious buyer and have some question for me please let me know.
The pictures here are from day one until running so If you see unpainted turbo pipes they are ainted black now. If you see no carpet that is because that was taken before I installed it.
This is my build thread so you can see the work that was put into this build.
Selling for $14,500 with the 15x7 BBS RS 001 wheels is A condition with new tires.
Selling for $12,500 without the BBS. Replacements will be 14x6 tear drops from 87 16v Scirocco. I will have to 10.1 inch front brakes though, which I have.
