Shotgun patina 1981 VW rabbit pickup with air ride!!! All new 1.6 diesel engine. 5 speed transmission. Lots and lots of new parts. If your serious and have cash call or email. Daily driver.
Engine: Bored to 1st over and everything in the block is new. Oil pump, pistons, bearings rings, it's new.
Body: Last on the road in 1995 was a barn find in California. You can see that even the bottom seems are in new condition and dead straight. The bed had carpet and more or less looks like it was never used. This is an excellent rust free truck, aside from the surface patina in the pictures. Blue body stripe must have been added shorty after it was new as it has faded in with all the original paint. The drivers side is peppered with a bunch bb marks from a shotgun shell or two, looks cool nothing is actually messed up from it. Just has some actual style if you are sick of looking at tan on tan caddy's for sale.
Air ride: I did not install the system but it seems to work fine and holds air without leaks or issue. Must be filled individually on the valves by the license plate. You can easily do it with a compressor and a tire gauge if you want to change the ride hight or feel.
Wheels are blacked out snowflakes and the tires are brand new as of today.
Interior is clean and intact for the most part. It is missing the ashtray and the headliner. I have the cardboard for it if you want to have it recovered. Dash has two smallish cracks on the edge of the center by the vent.
Door handles are new. All key cores have been swapped and one key runs everything. Mirrors are new. Basically I used all the NOS parts I have been saving or I purchased new replacements to build a super nice daily driver. I have been building diesel caddy's for over 10 years exclusively so don't hassle me with some low offer or some crappy trade.
Trades: I would consider partial trade of the truck you have not finished yet or any diesel rabbits that are not rusted out. I only work on diesel VW's.
