Description of 1982 Volkswagen Rabbit

Very clean Rabbit Pickup for sale. You don't see them in this good original condition often. I purchased it from a gentleman in his 80s. He decided it was time to let go of some of his toys and I was happy to have it.
It had been re-sprayed some time in the past in dark gray. Its a pretty decent paint job. The original color was Mojave Beige and it can be seen in the interior and engine bay. The older gentleman didn't use it much so I replaced some fuel system parts to get it to run better. I also installed new front struts and mounts. The AC wasn't functioning so I removed it and installed a mk3 alternator and serpentine belt setup. Other than that, Ive just been having fun driving it.
It starts, runs, drives, and stops well. Its equipped with the original 1.7 gas engine and 4 speed trans. Odometer is broken so mileage is unknown. Occasionally, it will puff a bit of smoke from the tailpipe. The original CIS injection may need tinkered with or maybe its burning a bit of oil. I have never gave it much thought because the smoking is so minimal. I have an engine, wiring, header, and 5-speed from a newer VW that can be sold with the Pickup for an additional cost. The engine has new seals and gaskets. These parts are NOT included in the auction price but can be purchased for a ADDITIONAL $500. Its a common engine swap for Rabbits and pretty easy(as far as engine swaps go)
2 sets of wheels will be included. The original steel wheels with all center caps. These came on the truck when I bought it. The tires have great tread but show signs of old age. The other is a set of Enkei Mesh wheels that I painted and polished up. They come with 2 new tires. The other 2 are decent.
Ive owned about 10 Rabbits and several pickups. The body on this one is way above average. The paint job still shines well but is probably 10 years old. The hood and roof are a tiny bit faded and show a few darker spots(size of a nickel) in the paint. Im nitpicking the paint to make sure there are no suprises. There is no rust in the towers, floors, rockers or anywhere else structural. Ive included photos of 3 small rust spots. There is also a pic of a crack on the driver door. Im assuming they used bondo to fill a dent
The interior is in quite nice original condition. The headliner has been replaced and looks good. Some of the plastics have faded to different degrees. if you know Rabbits, then you know that it happens to them all. The seats have no tears and the dash has no cracks.
I would feel comfortable driving this truck anywhere. There is NO RESERVE on this auction. The opening bid is set for what ratty rusty trucks sell for. I have the truck advertised elsewhere so I may end the auction if I find a buyer.
$500 PayPal deposit is due withing 48 hours of auction end. The balance will be paid upon pickup via cash, cashiers check, or wire transfer. The balance will NOT be paid via paypal. I can deliver the truck to a shipping terminal but the buyer must make all arrangements and payments.
Contact me with any questions before bidding. I want to make sure the new owner is happy with the vehicle.
Thanks for looking, Bill
