Unfortunately, I have to put it up for sale. I have too many cars. This is an 84 VW Scirocco with a 5 speed trans, and a 1.6l diesel from an 83 rabbit. Car has 155k miles. Not sure how many miles on the engine. This car has not been converted yet, but would be a great wvo car.
Engine starts instantly, warm or cold. Does not leak or burn any oil. Engine oil analysis came back normal. Transmission shifts smooth and stays in gear. Clutch feels fine (no slippage). Timing belt changed 10k miles ago. Decent paint with the exception of minor rust at wheel wells (see pics). Remanufactured starter and alternator. Brand new battery.
This car is set up for economy. No AC and no power steering. Still, not too hard to turn wheel. I consistantly get 48 mpg during mainly city driving. I've gotten as high as 60 mpg on the highway, driving very conservatively.
Dash board has a few cracks in it. The trunk is difficult to lock and unlock. (You have to jiggle the key) Tires have great tread, I'd say about 85-90%. Driver seat is torn on the side a little. Both front seats are hard to lock in position once adjusted. You have to be out of the car to get them to lock in place. Also, in order to fold the front seats forward you must manual unlatch them due to the cables being broken. Car rattles a lot at idle with this diesel engine in it, but the amount of money you save on fuel more than makes up for the noise.
Also, shocks and struts are in good shape. The strut mounts have zero rust. The speedometer needle was not put on correctly so it reads about 15 mph faster than actual speed, however the odometer is dialed in correctly. Door locks and windows work properly. Glow plugs all work well. Oil changed every 2,500 miles since I've owned the car. I'll change oil before I sell it if need be. Car comes with a CD player. The trunk interior is brown, the rest of the interior is black.
The car will need to be inspected by October, which I can take care of at any time. If you need more pics let me know. No emissions needed here in PA for diesels.
Asking $2,600 obo.
