Vehicle description

1981 VW rabbit pickup truck. 1.6 diesel 12mm head bolts, 5 speed transmission.
Motor has been removed, cleaned, honed, rebuilt and painted. Runs excellent, you could probably drive it home but I have only put about 10 miles on it since I finished it. I build a ton of VW diesel motors every year. Mechanically the truck is sound and should be a good daily driver. Suspension is a bit soft, but they always were. Brakes work good, tires are ok to get you A to B but would probably need replace if you were going to road trip it home. I have more wheel sets with good tire, an agreement could be made for different wheels.
Body is really solid. Strut towers and A arms are clean. It does have a small rust area under the driver side floor near the jacking point and the pinch weld from it being jacked up in the wrong spot over lots of years. Bed is in good shape and has had a topper on it most of it"s life. It is currently missing a driver side taillight, it was cracked and I have not found a new one yet. Yes the hood and driver door are a slightly different color. Previous old lady dragged that side getting out of the garage. No structural damage. All panels fit clean and door closes easy.
Lots of small stuff has been sorted out, seals replaced, new fuel lines, new filters, shift linkage. Anything I found that needed attention has been taken care of. Truck was originally purchase from a guy in his 60"s this was his moms car that she drove from WY to Oregon for road trips. When she passed away he could not find the title. Truck does not come with a title just bill of sale. I can tell you how to get one or maybe it"s easy in your state with a simple VIN check. Open to possible offers for a Audi TT or other VW diesels that need work. Happy to work with a shipper.
Again the motor is new and the truck is more or less rust free so bid accordingly. Paypal deposit required at auction end, balance due in cash. No checks or other silly payments
