More Details & Pictures
Sadly letting go of my beloved 81 VW Rabbit Pickup. Greenie is a 1.6l diesel. 88,737 miles on truck, 25K on motor. Purchased in Florida April 2013 with a clean title.
Front end, passenger side accident in summer 2013. Insurance company totaled the truck (damage to frame accordion). I bought it back and repaired it as my daily driver. Maine did not reissue the title, but if I were to apply for one, it would be salvage.
Truck came with a 1.5l diesel motor. Summer 2014 I replaced it at 64k with a 1.6l. Also removed the air conditioning unit. Have maintained Greenie with regular oil, fuel, and air filter changes. Used to the same mechanic since I bought the truck. Have all of my receipts. Latest work – timing belt, injection pump, air and fuel filter at 88k.
Have two sets of 13inch wheels and tires – studded snows and all seasons.
Selling because I really want the truck to be restored, and I don’t have the time or money to do it right. Greenie is starting to rust and needs attention. I have documented all of the rust spots with my mechanic and can share pics upon request.
My mechanic says that Greenie is doing well and he’d drive it across the country without any hesitation. He also says the rust is manageable and repairable – nothing serious and nothing in the “wrong” places. Clean strut towers, solid rockers, solid exhaust. I’ve seen southern VW pickups with ZERO rust so compared to them, Greenie is definitely NOT rust free, but for a 1981 New England resident, Greenie ain’t bad.
I mostly just drive Greenie locally, but have gone further afield many times. If you are interested in learning more about this great little truck, message me and we can set up a time to talk. I’m open to talking about the price. I have WAY TO MUCH $ into this truck to part with it for little to nothing, but I’m willing to negotiate something that’s fair. Greenie deserves a good home. Maybe you’re it!
