vw 'vert for sale
i need to free up some garage space, and i don't really like
convertibles. what does this mean? well, i have a 1981 rabbit
convertible that i bought and immediately modified, painted(super-cool
BBS body kit too!), and put a new interior in. i then proceeded to drive
it and found that i really don't like driving a convertible. the car has
been in my garage since january, cylinders misted, exhaust plugged with
moth balls and battery out. here is a list of the mods:
ported and polished head and intake, race valve job, big bore TB
(properly mated, of course), 79 scirocco cam, ram air, autotech tri-y
header and 2" aluminized sport exhaust, muffler and cat, sport shifter,
GTI interior dyed black, black carpet, jetta leatherette steering wheel,
decent, 5k mi michelin roadhandler sport tyres, quad-light grille, custom
upper stressbar, drake engineering lower stressbar, 16 row oil cooler;
KYB gas shocks (i know, el cheapo, but they work pretty well.)
it also has an awesome new paint job and the aforementioned BBS body kit.
problems: exhaust leak, have necessary gasket; driver's window needs
adjustment; vent windows could use some really good glass glue; carpet
needs to be re-glued. there is also a short somewhere in the electrical
system which i cannot track down.
this is a great, quick little car. all that i would do to it is throw in
a close ratio tranny, which you can get for $100 from a friend of mine.
i have put over $6000 into this car - all i am asking is $1500, because
i am a student and it resides in my father's garage, to his extreme
displeasure. the car is a steal at this price. first reasonable offer
in the $1500 price range takes it. you can see a pic of it before the
quad-light grille was installed at the following url:
thanks a lot.
