Up for sale is a 1983 Jetta Deluxe 1.7L 5spd.
New ignition control module, Beru plug wires, Napa Echlin dizzy cap and rotor, NGK platinum plugs, OE clutch cable, OE clutch cable grommets, rebuilt shifter relay w/OE parts, and short shift bracket is being welded now. The steering rack boots are torn, I have new OE replacements for that.
I am heading to Bommarito VW in St Louis tomorrow for a shifter dust boot and a throttle pedal cable bushing. The bushing is keeping me from driving the car.
I drove it around a little before rebuilding the shifter/short shift and tune up. I am suprised how the 1.7 pulls and that's with the distributor clamp very loose from the previous owner, which has been tightened.
The spark plugs that came out were a bit sooty. I'll go through that vacuum lines and check things out. The front brakes are a bit rusty from lack of driving, I have been looking into GTI Rabbit brakes as an upgrade to the solid non-vented that comes on the car.
Previous owner had tires put on recently, a locally bent cat-back exhaust (which needs a cat to pipe gasket), and there's a new coil spring in the trunk (I don't know the story about that).
Driver's seat cushion is broken down a little bit, the rest of the seats are in great condition. No structual rust, there is some surface rust here and there on the body. Strut towers are just fine. The dash is in fantastic shape. I have not tried the moonroof. The parking brake works great. The radio is a Pioneer cd player and rear speakers appear to be JVC, I don't know about the front speakers. Half shafts and tie rods are in great condition.
I plan to bring the car down the Feb 25th stlvw.org gtg and have some better pictures taken of it.
