Description for Volkswagen Rabbit 1980

Up for sale is my 1988 MK1 Volkswagen caddy Built in Wolfsburg Germany it spent the first part of it's easy life as a German Red Cross vehicle stationed in Singen, Germany. I purchased and imported the truck in the spring of 2013. I showed it at various car shows that summer promoting our small VW parts business. It has been garage kept since then. I added an early MK1 rabbit chrome bumper to replace the later plastic euro bumper. Original late model bumper and hella fog lights are included in the sale. At the time we also fitted OEM recaro seats, adjustable coilover suspension and 15" VWMS OZ racing wheels without effecting or compromising the trucks over all appearance. All, with the exception of the chrome bumper, have been replaced and put back to back to stock with the original parts. There is no structural rust anywhere to be found. However along the bottom of the Original windshield seal there are a few spots from where the paint has started to lift. I can address this with potential buyers. The Caddy shows 11,171 Kilometers or just under 7,000 miles. I believe this to be accurate because of the over all original condition of the truck. Included TUV paperwork also shows Kilometers at time of inspection. I welcome anyone to come and check it out for themselves.
