Description for Volkswagen Rabbit 1981


Let me expound on the truck's condition.Ihave bought and sold these trucks for over 20 years.Just paid an ace VW mechanic (Dan G.- technically trained by Air Force as a non-jet mechanic whom I just learned was actually employed by StarVolkswagenofDurham within 3 days of leaving the Air Force) to rebuild the engine down to the crank with less than a 100 miles since completion. Dan is 65+ and has forgotten more about VW diesel engines than most will ever know. Some of the work just completed by Dan includes new brakes, new tires and synthetic fluid replacement in transmission. No dash cracks - interior in original condition. This is the most unmolested truck I have ever seen. I noticed several other trucks selling on Ebay located in NORTHERN STATES. A 35 year old truck does not survive the ravages of salt. ENOUGH SAID. The truck has just completed it's overhaul and still at the mechanics in Galax, Va. That is why I was unable to detail the truck with a thorough cleaning like wiping down the door frame you see in pics. A little soap and water would do wonders cosmetically.

It is by far the best original condition truck I have ever seen. All original paint - no dents - no bondo - no rust.Pictures show paint flecked off the top of tailgate this is surface only areas have been primed and painted, slightly different color. Rockers, floorboards and shock towers...perfect. Dash has no cracks. All gauges work - even the clock.

I have lots of paperwork over the 35 years showingmileageand registration always in Durham, NC. See pic of original owner'smanual andwarrantyandmaintenancebooks.

Well belowthesnow belt states and three hours from the sea water coast. Purchased NEW at Star Volkswagen of Durham, NC on 5-19-81. On 10-15-85 had 52,032 miles, On 12-15-93 had 69,921 miles. On 5-15-99 was registered to C&C Automotive. On 5-19-2005 had 109,622 miles still registered to C&C Automotive repair shop. I registered it on 4-11-2011.

1981, 1.6 liter diesel, working odometer 120K.

Here are a few unmentioned extras: dealership trim pack, sliding truck rear window and heavy duty truck bumper. All were dealership extras. I added a full set of alloy wheels all around, and 5th for the spare.

NO A/C. Overdrive transmission with 5speeds. This truck needs nothing. New tires. New brakes. Engine rebuilt all the way to the crankshaft. This is a 35 year-old truck. Sold as is where is.Ready to drive anywhere. Needs nothing. Call me, happy to answer any questions, my direct cell is (336)202-4202, or email through Ebay.

I will start the bidding at $2999.

Buy it now is $5,000. If you've ever wanted a solid truck to cherry-out, this is it. Southern truck from Durham, NC. First $5,000 drives it home, option goes away after first bid. You will not be able to buy a $1500 to $3000 truck and bring it up to this condition with a solid metal rust proof body andcompletelyrebuilt engine for less than $5000.
