      I have too many cars and as much as I really like this one, it's the one that I have barely driven. I'd really like to see this go to another enthusiast that will appreciate it and get more use out of it than I have. I bought the car as is, but I have many of the receipts from the original owner/builder. This car has never once been driven in bad weather since I have had it and has been garage stored 100% of the time.

      Year: 1982
      Make: VW
      Model: Rabbit Convertible
      Miles: Approx 60,000 on body

      Engine:
      BBM stage 3 G60 from a 1990 Corrado
      Approx. 30,000 miles
      Neuspeed cold air intake with K&N filter
      Schrick cam
      BBM lightened flywheel
      BBM high capacity oil reservoir
      Oil cooler
      Sparco top mount intercooler
      Straight piped catless exhaust that original owner told me passed emissions

      Trans:
      Stock 5 speed
      Peloquin limited slip
      Sachs racing clutch
      Short throw shifter

      Suspension:
      Unknown brand (maybe H&R?) sport springs
      Spax adjustable damping shocks (front and rear adjust without removing anything or lifting the car)
      Neuspeed front and rear swaybars
      Neuspeed strut tower brace

      Interior:
      Corbeau racing seats
      Schroth 4 point harnesses
      Momo steering wheel (horn not wired up)
      No stereo (not sure if there are speakers or not)
      No A/C
      I believe all new carpet and door panels were put in when the swap was done

      Body Misc:
      Hella quad round headlights
      Hella tails
      Shaved side markers
      Wolfsburg front emblem
      Painted "Speedster" badge on trunk
      OZ superlegarra wheels
      Good Eagle F1 summer tires
      Euro bumpers front and rear
      Functional 300ZX hood scoop (feeds air to top mount intercooler)
      Pop out vent windows
      Fender flares (Ralley Golf if I am reading the receipt correctly)
      Kamel hood spoiler
      Car is painted an OEM Passat dark green (looks black in some lighting)

      Other Misc:
      Almost new Optima YellowTop battery relocated to trunk
      4 wheel disc brakes
      Drilled rotors
      VDO gauges
      Tinted windows
      Very nice condition black leather cover for when the top is down
      Power steering delete
      I have about $8500 in receipts for the work done on this car and that's with many of them missing

      Bad:
      Small battery drain (too dead to start the car if it sits for 2-3 weeks)
      Small rust bubbles where side markers were shaved
      Missing seals for the rear of the front windows
      Exterior driver's door handle does not work
      Pea sized paint chip on corner of trunk lid
      Trunk shocks are weak
      Odometer does not work (rest of gauges are fine)

      Pics: I know the pics aren't the best, but I've literally only put 1-2,000 miles on this in the 4 years or so I have had it so I haven't gotten a chance to have many pictures taken.











      Price: $4300 (approximately $12,000 in building it)

      Contact Info: PM me on here or call/text to 513- two five five-635Zero. I will return any serious inquiries, but I am usually able to respond much sooner to texts than phone calls.

      The car is located in Tell City, IN. If you would like to come see it please give me a little notice so I can get the battery charged and rearrange cars to get it out (at least 2, maybe 3 cars have to move so it can get out of my garage). If anyone would be flying in, the closest airport is a little over an hour away in Louisville, KY. We can possibly work something out if you need picked up. Someone please give this car a good loving home!

      There is a back seat, but it is not usable with the harnesses in the front. They go between the back and bottom of the rear seat to mount. If you went back to stock seatbelts the back seat is fine.

      I would expect it to be fine driven to Florida unless it rains because of the missing door seals mentioned in the OP.

      Let me know if I can answer any more questions

      Washed it and got some better pictures today. As you can see I missed a few bugs on the front, didn't get it totally dry and didn't vacuum the interior. I'll have engine shots tomorrow. I was running out of light today.

      A few engine shots and a couple of the car out in the sun. Looks almost black in certain lighting.

      This is a used car and I will be selling it as is. That being said I have never had any issues with it. The only thing remotely close to a breakdown is that there is a slow battery drain that makes the battery need to be put on a charger if it sits without being driven for 2-3 weeks. You should be fine.

      Also please note the two window seals that are missing in case you were to run into rain during the drive. It may not even leak bad since its the seals at the back of the windows but I've never driven it in rain so I do not know how bad it would be.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions. I will provide as much information as I can for you.

      Very nice car. If it weren't so far away... I'm in Washington. I'd either have to ship it or fly out and drive home.
      Ben gone from Vortex for nearly ten years... I must be getting old, cause this style of putting Corvette wheels or what not and stretching tires is a style I do not understand.
