      SOLD

      First off, this truck is originally from Nevada. The only rust on the whole truck is surface.
      It has 53k original miles! This truck starts and runs perfectly. It is Solid!!!!

      Of course being as old as it is there are some small issues. It needs a brake booster. The blinkers need bulbs/wiring. One turns on but doesn't blink. There is a chrome bumper (not oem) on the rear. Fuel leak from the return line at the tank. 2 dollar piece of hose. Dash is cracked bad, but I have a mint black cabby dash that could go with it. I also have two tan corrado front seats that can also go with it. Truck also already has collector plates and a clean title.

      That being said I am pricing this truck at 2500 dollars O.B.O.
      I am open to trades of equal value. Mk2 and up. I will also be taking care of the issues it has so the price will reflect them as they are completed.

      I also realize there will be those people who will feel the need to inform me of the mint Caddys they can buy for 1k. Good. I'm glad they are out there.

      I'm pretty sure I wouldn't advertise a perfectly running diesel if It needed starting fluid to get going. That can is empty and was just sitting in the truck. That motor has never seen starting fluid.

      Im not one to troll but the original 56k... I bet thats been rolled over a few times. I remember when my buddys rolled over and it has 1 "original" mile on it... and I'd make sure to remove the starting fluid before taking pictures. GLWS

      Yes you are and its 53k
      I bought this truck from the second owner. The miles are legit. I dont really care what's in the picture. At the price I'm asking there's only a few people who would pony up that kind of cash for this truck and I anticipate they would have it inspected before they bought it. Thanks for the bump and the "not trolling"

      Does this Caddy still have the original 1.5?

      I ask because it currently has 1.6 intake filter housing / piping.

      Thats pretty much where I am if someone wants to pony up cool, if not, I keep doing stuff to it till decide to do a full restore or just drive it forever
      Good luck with yours as well! It's well worth every penny.
