      1989 VW Fox 2-door Base $2000 obo
      Everything VW related that I have $2800 obo (listed under PNW parts classifieds in detail)

      I am willing to entertain any trades, especially those involving scooters/motorcycles, firearms, cool projects, etc.
      I am also willing to return this car to mostly stock and would sell it for $1500 obo that way. The only thing that would stay is the exhaust, I still have all of the other parts I upgraded.

      Paint is faded on the roof, hood, and trunk. PO spray bombed hood and trunk with a relatively matching shade......it's not to bad if overall.
      Absolutely no rust anywhere whatsoever.
      Pop out rear windows.

      Factory Base Models has:
      No power steering
      No A/C
      No power locks
      4spd tranny
      No cruise control...

      I have removed most of what is not needed for the car to run properly. As a result you MUST warm it up for it to idle properly. Starts every time though and runs like a champ.

      upgrades:
      Suspension- all upgraded approx 4-5k miles ago
      FK Corrado 60/40 springs
      GY2 shocks all around
      new strut mounts
      new bump stops
      BFI 22mm rear sway (bolts into twist axle)
      Larger rear drums from a Caddy/Fox wagon/mk3 etc...
      sits a lot lower than stock, but not really low by VW standards A arms are nearly level for excellent handling
      Motor-
      TT Exhaust from the motor back. dual downpipe manifold with tt downpipe, tt cat, tt catback aluminized w/Dynomax muffler
      TT 268 cam w/older adjustable cam gear
      Throttle body from an Audi 80 (same as mk2, digi Fox, Audi 5000 etc.)
      ECU is from a mk2 GTI and I have the switch to wire up WOT stuff, just never got around to it.
      PCV system has been replaced with a catch can, ebay variety modified to work properly
      Timing advanced
      stock small valve head and low compression pistons (8.5 to 1) would be a great motor to turbo if that's your thing, or buy the solid lifter head I have and do an JH/ABA or 3A 2.0 n/a motor (that was my plan...)

      interior/exterior
      scirocco seats
      VW Motorsports wheel
      Audi 5000 leather shifter boot
      crappy stereo w/ stock speakers
      Fox gauge cluster w/ Tach and KPH speedo

      currently on 13" snow tires Tarantulas on the front and VW alloys on the back with good studdless snow tires (these worked well for fast drives on all the logging roads we have near here) I also have a set of 15" Vials and a set of 13" Enkeis, both 8 spoke panasport style for sale separately, and a set of tarantulas with YokoA008Rs; two are shaved and two are down to the metal... I would happily cut a deal if you wanted different wheels.

      still have a bit. as a matter of fact, I was just perusing the classifieds and contemplating re-listing my Fox for sale...so I guess this is a bump of sorts
      My fiance and I are trying to buy a house...so I will cut someone a hell of deal on what's left.

      The only thing listed in the original ad that I don't have anymore is the VW motorsports wheel and the driver's side corner got run into Not really all that bad:


      Uploaded with ImageShack.us

      edit:that picture makes the damage look horrible. car was parked when hit and was only nudged by a school bus that had trouble parking damage is strictly the drivers fender and corner light, unibody is still totally straight.

      I would take $1800 obo for everything I have VW related left.

      Mostly that is what is on the car +
      ~13x5.5 enkei 8 spoke (like panasports) on good 185/60-13s (4 of them, with curb rash, but no leaks)
      ~15x5.5 Vial 8 spokes (also like panasports) with ok mismatched 195/50-15s
      ~9Q trans (5spd close ratio out of Quantum Turbo Diesel) fits Fox if you weren't sure.
      ~JK solid lifter head, recently rebuild according to seller. still in the box he shipped it to me in, ~has a bunch of random small parts that came with it.
      ~A box of "other" VW parts
      ~VW gas Dasher radiator (with cap, to delete stock expansion tank)
      ~map pockets, spare instrument clusters, wiring, stock springs, so much stuff.


      $1800 obo, you pick it up. I'm not super interested in parting it out yet, looking to get rid of it all with as little work as possible. When I give up on someone handing me money and taking it all away I will list prices for individual parts...until then I WILL NOT RESPOND to any requests for parts. ALL OR NOTHING!
