Hey all-

Just a little feeler...

Any thoughts on what the Diesel Cabby might be worth? 
(Or, if I thought about selling it, what would be a
reasonable asking price?)

It is an '86, the engine originally came from an '81
Rabbit.  Ironically, both the engine and body have in
the neighborhood of 135000 miles on them.  Engine runs
really great, the car doesn't mind driving 75-80, even
with the top down and with a canoe strapped to the
roll bar!  :-)

It has a new head gasket, and no leaks anymore.

The body is in very servicable shape, save for a
little wrinkle in the front radiator support by the
passenger fender.  No rust to speak of.

Interior is also very servicable, and it has a TD
Jetta instrument cluster w/tach.

Top is nearly leak-free.  :-)

Just looking for thoughts.  I'd sort of like to get a
TDI Passat...
