I have a sky blue 1980 volkswagen rabbit pick up. It is a very cool car. It has a 1.5 liter diesel engine. 55mpg. It can be converted to bio diesel. Its a front wheel drive. Very fun small pickup. I really wanted to get it going but its too much for me. Plus I am a tall guy and the cab is a little too small for me.
It has a camper shell. Extremely rare.
It has never been in an accident and has very little rust considering.
Original everything including the key, lights and grill.
New fuel and oil filters.
All the electrical works.Including the fuel pump.
Lived in LA for most of its life. So no salt rust.
5-speed manual transmission.
The transmission works fine.
The brakes work.
Has a custom working radio.
New fuel injector.
New Relay plugs.
The engine is totally free and turns.
It doesn’t run. The engine has a lot of blowby and won’t fire up. I had a mechanic look at it and he said that one of the pistons has a hole in it and that the engine would need to be rebuilt. That is too much for me.
It has a new head on the block though which probably, from that extra pressure, blew a piston in the low block.
The interior in the cab is really rough. Needs a new dash.
The muffler fell off. I have it but I had to take it off.
i am looking to sell the car by the end of the week because I am leaving back to LA so please come by and make me an offer.
This would be a great project car for someone who had the time/knowledge/ money to get it going. This car is very rare.
