A really cool guy hooked me up with a 88 gl wagon for $800 last sunday. Now I own all three body styles!
Rust is pretty minimal, and it runs like a champ! The odo and speedo don't work(of course) so unknown mileage, but I'd say over 250k. Quite a few mods are already done to it, which is really what turned me on to it:
-Neuspeed lowering springs with bilsteins all around
-5 speed swap
-Audi Fox exhaust mani with custom 2.25" exhaust and newer cat
-Bottom end from a ABA(not sure what head is from)WWO?
-Rebuilt engine with about 70k on it
-276 cam and tt cam gear
-Smoked turn signals and tail lights
-GTI front seats
-MK1 GLI Front Discs with slotted rotors
And I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff.
Right now, all it really needs to be driveable is a new ignition, which is already on the way courtesy of foxpartsconnection. I've driven it with the needlenose-style ignition tho, and its a blast! It's funny, the wagon body used to be my least favorite fox, now I'm kinda thinkin the opposite.
ANd what is this WWO head from?
Thanks for looking guys. Any opinions welcomed. I wanna take it on a REAL drive, but I guess I'll be a good boy and only race around the neighborhood till I get plates.
