      Unmolested 85 Scirocco 1.8L 8valve. 99% original.
      107276 Mi on Odometer.
      Stopped driving it in 1994 and its been garaged since then.
      Painted silver a few years ago and garaged again.
      Fuel system was overhauled then and stored in running condition.
      Need to go through car again but it will run with a few days work, I've done it before.
      Exhaust & Fuel tank are out of the car but included.
      New tires on stock rims.
      Price not firm Best Offer gets it.

      Are you surprised at the price being high or low

      Mk2 roccos don't get much love, sure is clean but an 18-year_parked non-16V isn't going to have dubbers lining up around the block..

      Typical Scirocco dash cracks. You can decent running one's for that much or slightly more. The Mk2's aren't that popular.

      Meh, it doesn't look to be 9.9/10. If I had to stare at that crappy dash, I'd be pissed if I paid $1500, and then had to get it running.

      I'd rather have my R for that kind of money.

      It's a $1500 car in TX. Take it to NY-->ME and it might fetch more $, but in reality it's a (possibly rust-free) shell that some VW fanatic could do nice things with. 8v Mk2 Sciroccos aren't terribly desirable as they sit, and that one needs an exhaust and fuel tank installed to run.

      That car is not a 9.9. It does look like the exterior is in beautiful condition, though. Strange color combination, though. Finding an uncracked, brown dash will be next to impossible, unfortunately.

      But if it really does just need the fuel tank put back in, then I'd say that's not a terrible purchase. It's got the same 8v in it that the GTI and Cabiolet of that year had.

      I like that it says unmolested, yet the gas tank and exhaust are removed. That's pretty molested IMO.

      Is it just me, or can TCL never find the positive side to anything?

      $1500 might as well be free, and it looks like an easy fixer-upper with a straight body and maybe even good paint. I don't get what isn't to like about it.

      It is definitely not a 9.9/10, but even at 6/10 it has plenty of potential.

      I always felt that molested meant that it is not in it's original state. *shrug* Maybe I'm just pickier.

      I wish people would stop saying this dumb ass phrase in every thread. Even when no one is "hating".

      Meh.


      Call me a cynic, but why would someone store it for soo long. Then decide to spend money to paint it and stick it back in a garage...just to sell for cheap years later?

      Also, says it was restored in running condition... but many important parts are now removed '& included'.

      Sounds like someone tried to get it running, failed, and gave up.

      I guess it can be looked at either way.

      I prefer to think of the term as a vehicle was modified to something other than factory. Like putting on exhaust, intake, different suspension, different interior... etc.

      False.

      Molested = ****ty cheap pep boys modifications. Clean OEM european market parts for example are far from molesting IMHO.

      If you disagree, then my Phaeton must be molested by me adding factory european market headlights, taillights, refrigerator, Bentley stalks and lighter, etc.

      You can't just make up definitions and declare things as true or false.

      Molested doesn't have to mean anything negative. All of my cars are heavily molested, but it is up to debate if they're well molested or poorly molested.
