      Absolutely adorable VW squareback for sale with tons of new parts and work done on it and only 86,000 original miles.

      Here is a list of the work that has been done:

      Put in a new windshield, new paint job, new generator, new fuel pump, new starter cable....

      Brakes: all new pads and shoes, both new front calipers, new front flex lines, completely restored back brakes. Repacked the front bearings. Reconditioned the rotors. Replaced 1 back wheel cylinder. Repaired and adjusted emergency brake lever.

      Fuel: Replaced all 4 injectors and all injector seals. Replaced fuel lines and fuel filter. Replaced all clamps on fuel lines.

      Engine: Replaced cap, rotor, points, and condenser. Replaced all braided vacuum lines. Replaced ignition wires. Tuned and timed the engine. Adjusted fuel pressure. Replaced throttle position switch. Installed brand new battery. Adjusted valves on apparently new heads.

      Electrical: Cleaned starter connections, replaced all wires connected to starter. Rewired turn signal and wiper switch. Repaired wiper motor.

      Body and Chassis: cleaned and repacked CV joints. Lubricated front end. Repaired battery tray with epoxy resin. Replaced every rubber seal on the car with new ones. Replaced all window seals. Inside of panels treated with rubberized undercoating. Painted with sealer and single stage paint. Treated certain areas with POR15 paint to prevent rust. Replaced front bumper. Replaced the front door panels. Replaced all 4 shock absorbers. Adjusted hood latch. Rebuilt driver side door with all new seals and felt channel. Replaced window cranks. Replaced all fender beading. Repaired heater controls. Replaced rear heater tubes.

      This car is now in tip-top condition and it drives like a race car! The things that it still needs are the outside chrome, floor mats, as well as mats for the trunk and hood compartment and a radio installed if you want one. It is registered until 2014 and has a clean title.
