Running, drivable 86 VW Quantum Syncro. Around 179k miles. A little rust, the major spots have been repaired and painted with primer. Like most old CIS cars, runs well when warm and a little weak when cold. Tires are brand new M&S with less than 1500 miles on them. Three new calipers, (the other still worked when I got it). New rotors all around. Recently replaced the fuel distributor with another used one. New parking break components, which work great. Has a cold start button. (push the button for more gas when cold.) Headliner is coming down around the sunroof. It appears to be an aftermarket power sunroof (see through) which still operates. All doors/locks operate fine with the exception of the passenger rear, which you have to take the inside panel off to lock/unlock it. (I just leave it locked) Tailgate works, however the gas pistons have lost all pressure so you have to hold it open. I was told by the previous owner that the locking diffs do work however it has a vacuum leak.
I never got around to checking this as I’ve never gotten stuck enough to need them. The wiring is a little messy, I’ve had to rewire the sunroof, cold start button, and alternator enable line. The other issue is the wipers – They currently operate but I would not be surprised to see them fail soon. It is the second motor I’ve installed, and it may be too weak, car has a new wiper switch as well. All manual windows and lock work. Was planning on keeping, but just found a 200 avant.
