Description for Volkswagen Rabbit 1981

Selling my 1981 Volkswagen Diesel Rabbit Pickup truck. NO RESERVE AUCTION. SELL TO HIGHEST BIDDER. I bought from original owner, so the truck has had only two owners. When I got the truck it had been sitting for several years. The block was locked up. An 1981 Rabbit was acquired as a donor car. The engine in the Rabbit had less than 70K on a rebuild. Engine was pulled and I replaced all seals and belts, as my intention was to restore and drive the truck. Glow plugs were replaced with "fast glow". The injection pump is a Bosch certified rebuild. The injection pump was set with the timing marks, which is close, but needs timing with a dial indicator gauge. New alternator belt. Engine starts and runs.

Pictures are best indication of overall condition of the truck. Before starting the work, I had the truck condition evaluated by a restoration expert in Columbus, Ohio, and he indicated the truck was well worth restoring. Note the strut towers are clean and solid. No rust on the hood. Passenger side door very good. Rocker panel at drivers door is most rust--see picture. The original key had been lost, so the ignition switch from the donor car was installed. The plastic steering column panels are in the truck. The door handles have locks that match the ignition key. Seats are original and in excellent condition. The dash is also in excellent condition. Drivers door panel is missing. No radio. Does not have A/C. Transmission is a 4-speed--see pictures. Tires are good, matching set. Truck has progressive extra load springs on rear axle. Original owner said he got 50-55 mpg highway.

Lots of extra parts are in the back. A tow bar is available and price negotiable. Truck not drivable long distance. Can deliver within 100 miles of 43050 for $1.00/mile one way. The vehicle will be sold in as is condition without any warranty expressed or implied. The vehicle is being sold by owner, clear title in hand. Ask any questions you may have and I will try to answer them as best as I can. Additional pictures may be available upon request. The vehicle is located in Mount Vernon, Ohio, about 35 miles NE of Columbus.
