      1984 JETTA DIESEL 1.6
      Was originally non-turbo - converted using k04 eclipse turbo

      i traded this car for a mk3 vr6 i had - now i am moving and dont have time to sort it

      head gasket leaks oil - out front of head - under the 3rd injector / glow plug line ( there is some silicone there in an attempt to stop it ) it fires up and drives but obviously cant drive it with it leaking oil.

      180k on odometer - turbo conversion been on for a year maybe, according to previous owner.
      body is super clean for its age - no rot / rust - non sunroof - clean interior as well.
      has some affordable coil-overs - not sure of brand.

      $2000 OBRO - might trade for something that goes under it own power already that doesnt need work.

      I just bought all the parts and tool to fix this - just havent had time -

      other than the oil leak, what else does it need to be road ready? lights etc.

      and did I notice there is NO hvac controls?

      thanks

      it need head gasket replaced to be road worthy

      There is a toggle switch for blower motor - the hvac controls cover is there - the levers to control the heat / cold might be in center console.. havent looked

      Bump!

      This is a very close friend of mine's old car. drove this beast before it was turbo'd from Iowa to Indiana to pick up my ECOdiesel. great times in this car... I was sad to see it go. Hope the next owner enjoys it as much as he did
