      ***UPDATE***
      The vehicle is now on fk coilovers that only have 3k miles on them
      The original 1997 aba i swapped into the car soaked up alot of water during a bad rain storm recently and hydro locked the engine resulting in bent valves and a rod knock...

      I have now swapped an obd1 aba in with a fresh timing belt, plugs,wires and some other odds and ends. I will post some more recent pictures soon

      1990
      Tornado Red
      Body has 160k
      NO Rust/Rot
      Rockers are good
      Interior is in Very good condition
      ABA Swap 120,000 miles out of 1997 Jetta*** now an obd1 aba***
      02A Transmission
      Vr6 Dual cooling fans
      Oil just Changed with mobile 1
      new exhaust manifold gasket
      No Heat, Heater core is bad, One is included with sale
      new g11 coolant
      No Power steering
      No a/c
      New control arm bushings
      New fuel pump
      Patec Holeshot coilovers
      16x7 et35 konig Remembers
      Tires 75%
      Spoiler Functions properly
      sunroof tilts up but will not slide back, Sunroof does Not leak
      Carpet is clean just dirty in pictures, Sorry
      I have turn signals to include for front but no fogs

      Just took the car on a 1,000 mile road trip and the car did great


      I have had this car for 5 years now, The G60 blew and I had this ABA laying in the garage from a part out so I decided to do the swap and now Im forced to sell due to College loans and other projects Id like to finish(Because Racecar). The car has no rust and is very solid. I have a garage full of corrado parts, boxes on boxes, so i can throw in some goodies to the right buyer with a good price

      The bad:

      Tornado Red is peeling or faded, Gives me ones less thing to care about and you can park anywhere and not worry about your perfect paint and door-dings

      2BLACK FENDERS (NOT PICTURED) WILL UPDATE POICTURE SOON

      The car does not have a radio so you will have plenty of time to think while you drive

      Car needs a new gauge cluster, Had one laying around and put it in but its in bad condition

      The rad and grill support is rough under the driver headlight from a buddy who cant drive

      The car is not 100% perfect but is reliable and a good project for anybody who wants a good solid, running corrado to tinker with. I had Intentions of boosting the car and keeping it... But now I have another black Corrado shell and a 7.5:1 compression g60 calling my name

      Car is located in Northern Virginia So here it goes, Pm me if interested
      PRICE IS $2,500 BRING YOUR OWN WHEELS OR I HAVE A JUNK SET I CAN THROW IN SO YOU CAN TRAILER THE VEHICLE OR DRIVE IT SHORT DISTANCE.
      And as stated, I have alot of parts I could included if the buyer would wish, Aslo if you just need any parts PM me

      Yes and no, I have had the fronts set at this height for years and have never bothered to adjust recently, I have bilstien 60/40 rear struts on due to I have a few people sending me new patec adjuster collars, so the rears are off getting cleaned up
