More Details & Pictures


1981 Volkswagen rabbit pickup diesel 5 speed in Lago blue.

Motor runs good and only has 135,000 miles on it. Previous owner used it daily for about 7 years until 2014 when the injection pump front seal started leaking. It has sat since 2014. I have the seal to put in but it did start first try. I have video of it running if you want to see it just text me. Seal replacement is easy and can be done in vehicle.

Body is pretty good in most spots but does have rust where the body was compromised from someone jacking it up wrong over the years near the floor pans. Pictures included, nothing to hide it’s rough around the edges. Lago blue is an easy sell and a harder color to find. I know these trucks really well and work on them almost every day.

Previous owner was a “welder” and made the stupid door handles you see. Also had “custom” seats reupholstered, and he was dead set on keeping one so it only has a driver seat. I have a passenger seat in tan.

Happy to answer questions. Fine little truck that would be decent for a work truck or trips around town. Probably needs a few things to be a reliable daily driver. Can also help with shipping. Located in Colorado, could delivery in any direction for a fair price. Truck must be paid in full before it goes on the trailer.

Trades: I’m interested in something type 3 that runs and drives. Always interest in other rabbit trucks and 2 doors, partial trades are ok if you have a good shell.
