      Hello! I bought this car knowing nothing about cars about a year ago. I still know nothing, and don't have the time or money to really figure it out. It goes like the business, has a bunch of wonky stuff. A little dirtier than the picture but the engine is all there.

      I am looking to either fix it and sell it or just sell it outright. Runs and drives fine. Is anyone interested? Priced to move.

      Piston gasket is giving up, brakes are touch and go at times. No leaks in the vaccuum line, probably an afternoon and a hundred dollar part. Aftermarket alarm system, shaved doors, air/fuel mixture gauge isn't working.

      Mechanics at local vw shop said the guy who did the swap did it awhile ago so certain things are a little old-school in terms of technique and routing and such.

      Call it 2500, obo
