Description: I am reluctantly selling my mk1 Caddy. I purchased it a few years ago as project but I am unable to finish it due to spacial limitations. When I first obtained the truck it did not run and was in very poor condition. I was able to get it running and driving however it ran very rough. I decided to tear down the engine due to compression concerns. I found that the head cylinder was split and had an unacceptable amount of piston slap. I will include a new cylinder head, so dont panic! The engine can be rebuilt with upgraded connecting rods for 1000$ or rebuilt with a turbo for 1500$. I was planning on rebuilding it with upgraded rods, a 268 cam, and a Prothe turbo kit, integrating mk2 TDI parts. This sounds like a lot of work but this engine is easier to work on than any Honda or VW. It is the simplest configuration of an engine (4 cylinder, 8v, and no computers to deal with). The perfect father/son/daughter project to learn basic mechanic skills and theories. I have also upgraded and modified a lot of different aspects to the truck as well.

All my acquired parts will be included in sale some new some used.

-1.6 litre diesel (48-55 mpg)
-Airlift on-board compressor
-corvette rear air shocks
-integrated schrader valve (so if the compressor ever fails you can air up with any compressor)
