      ***NO LONGER FOR SALE***


      83 rabbit 4 door LS with factory sun roof.
      Sunroof works ok, but leaks a little
      Although this car started as deluxe model, power steering and air conditioning have been removed. Manual rack installed ( not just power rack bypassed)
      A/c completely removed including swap over of box under dash, heater core, manual controls etc.

      Car has 1 rust hole in driver fender lower. Size of a golf ball.
      Carpet was out, floors totally sound, rust free, re-coated, new sound deadening installed.
      Strut towers, windshield area, rear suspension attachment point all rust free.
      Has the much sought after mk1 patina. Paint peeling, funkyness. But is not a rust bucket.

      Interior has blue dash, carpet, door panels. Has scirocco 2 bucket seats that give extra headroom . Rear Rocco seat also installed. Interior is about a 6 out of 10.
      Car has speakers, and is wired up for an aftermarket Sony radio, but some numbskull stole the faceplate off the radio. So, no working radio...

      What is outstanding about this car is the motor and running gear.
      25k miles in fresh rebuild of 1.6 turbo diesel.

      Turbo is k14, injection pump re-sealed, reman injectors. Easily over $1500 in parts on motor alone plus a couple hundred hours. Transmission is a .71 5th gear for very calm freeway driving. Cruise all day at 65-70. No problems with hills with the turbo.

      Other running gear all gone through about 25k ago. New brakes all around, booster, master cylinder.
      Has new tires, freshly re-done stock wheels with caps and new clips.

      I drive this car 800 miles per week ( no typo- 800 miles a week).
      Gets 47-51 mpg. I would not hesitate to drive this car across country.
      Mechanically it is incredibly clean and sound.
      Appearance.... There is a lot there to start with.

      Looking for $3500 firm. No trades.
      Let me know if you are interested.
      Only way I sell this car is if my scirocco also sells.
