Description: 1980 VW Rabbit Pickup 5 Speed Manual and 1.5L Diesel — 152xxx miles $1500

Alright everyone, after much consideration of a fair price, advice from friends, and some market research, I have substantially lowered the price.
The truck is located in Bozeman MT, and the sale is being handled by a friend of mine, so I am being brutally honest about the flaws I am aware of in order to not waste his time. . .

CONS:
-Scattered rust, not particularly bad but is evident (Passenger strut tower needs repair)
-Sloppy gear box
-Fair interior, however most panels show wear
-Passenger window needs assistance to go up and down
-Steering rack has in/out play about half inch — truck comes with a known good condition rack
-Brake system needs love

PROS:
-New NAPA battery and Bosch quick glow plugs just installed –truck starts fantastically and drives well.
-All electrical components work
-All four tires hold air
-Title is clean and in hand
-Truck comes with a brand new windshield as well as F/R Westy bumpers

Although this truck has its issues, it is a blast to drive and is not far at all from being a very cheap, very reliable, and very cool around town car!  I had 2 weeks to drive it before I made the choice to leave it in Montana instead of driving is back to Missouri.  In that time I put approximately 700 miles on it without a single hiccup.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comment, or concerns!

Thanks!

-Mitch
