      I have the ONLY Audi 50 in North America (predecessor to the mk1 vw polo) and there are few survivors across the pond, I did a ground up resto on it... entire shell in, out and bay was taken to bare metal and resprayed porsche albertblau, seats taken down to the skeleton and rebuilt, 1.3L single carb OG motor refurbished and tuned (odometer stopped at 111,000 kilometers (around 70K OG miles) but I can assure you it cant be much more, 4 speed manual shifts mint, new glass, carpet, nardi wheel that matched OG dash grain, fully fabbed suspension, airlift v2 air ride system, all metal trim and bumpers hand polished and the list goes on. Sitting on custom 3 piece forged rotiform 4 spoke TMB's (only set ever made) in 14x7 all around with staggered lips (2" + 3")

      Inside, outside, underneath, this car is newwwww, doorcards and dash are like new etc.

      I have an insane amount of original parts at well as the original wheels, filters, brake parts and tune up kit for when they need to be replaced etc.

      I'm asking $15,000 (I have roughly $25,000 into the car + 100's of man hours + its rarity = yes I'm firm at 15)

      I may consider a partial trade + cash on your end depending on what you have BUT YOU CAN PM ME THOSE OFFERS... PLZ DON"T GO POSTING PICS IN THIS THREAD.

      Here's a video my friend just shot of the car...

      This car is, as the kids say, dope. One fine example of time and dedication, HUGE bump.

      Beautiful car indeed, but for the purposes of knowing (and the statement of it being the ONLY one), was this the original car: http://bringatrailer.com/2011/01/06/...7-audi-50-gls/ ?

      beautiful car, but not the only one in the US. a nice original one was sold in AZ a few years ago, unless this is the same one, which woulod be a shame, because it was pretty much mint factory og yellow with green interior

      Yes this is that car, same one linked above on bring a trailer, although it was hardly original. Had been resprayed... Was rotting from the inside out, rear quarters had been replaced, seats were recovered in sagging velour, etc. Car is now 100%, no bondo, all metal repaired and restored right whether you like the direction I took it or not...

      This is one of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen on here. GLWS - I wish I had a garage to keep her in.
