    Thread: FS: 1984 Rabbit GTi (Tampa, FL) $2000

    1. 03-17-2012 03:37 PM #1


      Hello I am selling my 84 GTi. When I bought the car it had lots of performance upgrades including:

      -Rebuilt 1.8 motor
      -All new bushings underneath
      -Lowering Springs and Shocks
      -Scirocco Brakes front and rear cross drilled
      -Stainless Steel brake lines
      -Neuspeed Sway Bars
      -Techtonics front and rear stress bars

      Since owning the car I have changed:

      -All motor mounts
      -All wheel bearing
      -Alternator
      -Oil pan and gasket
      -Oil pressure switch
      -Tires
      -Thermostat
      -Fan Switch

      The car runs strong, needs a little bit of gas on a cold start but after 20 secs she is good to go. Handles and drives great, shifter has quite a bit of play but shifts perfectly once you are use to it. Sun roof works but the plastic crank has broken and I can not find a replacement. I don't know what else to say - I love this car and do not want to see it go I am asking $1500 for it and will not go any lower.

      Here is a link for 32 photos of it on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/atflick...8191/lightbox/

      Please email me at Ryan@RockOcean.com for any other questions or info.

      I also have the fender flares, rear bumper, and front valance which are in excellent condition.

      Recently drove up to Chattanooga, TN from Tampa, FL in the GTi and got 30 mpg on the highway.

      bump for a nice clean car!

      why does it need gas on cold starts?
      fuel filter original?
      fuel pump condition?

    5. 03-22-2012 03:06 AM #5
      I dont know - fuel filter has been changed recently and I changed the injector on the #1 cyl. that seemed to be leaking fuel when off the throttle. Car runs perfect after 30 seconds just drove up to Tennessee and she ran like a dream even getting 30mpg on one fill up.



      In case you didn't notice I have removed the tint since I got back from Tennessee.

      Wait.. you want $3,000 for this car?

      Did you accidently put one too many zeros in there?

      Pretty sure he wants the full 3k, and Im sure he will get close to it. Here in FL I have people throwing me crazy numbers for my mk1 all the time, Don't see them around here much. Plus ours have less rust usually.

      Just in case you were wondering what she would look like with 16x8 Snowflakes on Bags..

      Seen it in person a few times, pics don't do it justice. Worth every bit of the 3k asking price!
