Looking for a Diesel Caddy? Just got this and its going up for sale.

1981 VW Rabbit Pickup LX Diesel 5sp 284K miles, Old Guy Owned since 1988. Its not perfect, and not a show truck but is a very solid unmolested original survivor. The Struts, Floor pans, bed, and body are very solid with only minor surface rust.

Mechanically it runs out great, The motor starts right up and runs strong (as strong as 48hp is anyway) 5sp Trans shifts, well, clutch is solid, brakes stop it straight but has a hard pedal, the suspension is tight drives well, tires are excellent, exhaust is broken at the muffler. Some of the stuff inside actually works, all the gauges, (speedo, temp gauge, fuel gauge, and even the ole clock).

It does have AC!, yea that doesn’t work, heater seems to work, the wipers do not and I would not count on the squirters either.

Most of the lights work, (safety first), the windows go up and down nicely, the right wing window is taped shut, I have not touched the left one. It also has a rear slider window. The headliner is there, I remember because it was sagging down and resting on my bald head.

The seats are surprisingly good as is most of the rest of the interior, The topper seems to have been a permanent part of this VW for many years as the front is silicone’d sealed to the top of the cab. The cap is in nice shape, and the rear door opens, but the tailgate does not.

Again this is a very solid, almost rust free in most places original Caddy, Let me know if you have any questions, the price is $3,300.00 Firm Cash no trades. 616-318-0118.,
