More Details & Pictures
1981 Vw rabbit “caddy” pickup, this is the LX model. I have owned this for almost five years and drive it around three times a week, always starts right up and averages around 49mpg. Truck has been entirely redone mechanically only needs a few cosmetic odds and ends but is turn key and ready to go as is. Every new part has around 5k miles on it.
– 5 speed manual with 1.6l n/a diesel
– front coil overs, rear axle flip with Monroe adjustable air shocks
– tan interior painstakingly pieces together from oem pieces over the past year, brand new carpet
– new front axles, tie rods and bushings
– new shifter assembly and bushings
– rebuilt head, brand new timing belt, water pump and motor mounts
– brand new Bosch starter
– new glow plugs, relay and wiring
– brand new fuel tank and lines
– 5k hid headlights
– Heater works but the blower fan seems to have lost power, may need to be replaced
– No headliner
– Original paint, front fenders and hood were resprayed many years ago and that is starting to show but adds to the old vw patina look if that’s what your going for.
– passenger tail light missing a piece of the housing, could also be replaced
– needs speaker grills modified to fit bigger speakers or a lower profile set installed.
These trucks were only available in the United States for three years, they are very hard to come by in good shape. This truck has minimal surface rust mostly in the bed and around the rear window, zero structural rust, the front strut towers are in perfect shape.
Truck is currently registered and comes with a camper shell, a big box full of hard to find mk1 parts and perfect shape aluminum bumpers front and rear. Title in hand, only trades considered would be for a plated enduro, dual sport, or supermoto over 400cc (no drz’s sorry) or a clean Datsun or Toyota pickup 2 or 4wd any year or 4Runner any year trade.
