      Sale Pending, deposit taken, thank you.

      $4,400 with original steel wheels (roof rack not included).
      $5,300 with the Centra 4x100 14" alloys with recently installed tiny tires.

      The car comes with Polo specific coilovers, and has all import paperwork completed and a Pennsylvania title in my name. It has ~73,000 miles, and runs very well. It recently made the run to Ocean City, MD and back with absolutely no problems and I regularly use it for trips to the shop etc.

      Body wise it has some dings on the sides, a cluster of which are next to the passenger side door. Underneath the unibody is very clean, but there is rust in the arches, around the rear hatch and there is a small section missing on the very bottom of the rear. I have recently detailed the paint, which really came up well, through simple swirl remover and normal waxing. When the coilovers were installed, new front rotors were also installed.

      The car is currently insured by Haggarty and should easily qualify for a antique plate in Pennsylvania or others states if you wish to do so. It needs nothing to just get in, drive and have fun with it.

      Just to clarify for anyone that doesn't know..
      RE: 'breadvan' - The Polo is not actually a van, nor was it meant for carrying bread. It's a name for the body style. It's a small two estate car (wagon) style, or a very upright hatchback depending on how you want to look at it. It's a informal and jovial nickname if anything.

      I'm sorry for the stupid question, but does it have back seats?

      Yes, it seats five and actually has headroom and trunk space amazingly enough! It's still pretty damn small though!

      Here's a photo of five of us in the highway:

      Wait.. I just realised something. It's not actually a van, nor was it meant for carrying bread. It's a name for the body style. It's a small two estate car (wagon) style, or a very upright hatchback depending on how you want to look at it.
