Description: I have a 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup for sale.there was ONLY 4,861 produced this year making it quite rare compared to the rather common 1980-1981 which made over 25k each year. this truck is equiped with the 1.6L N/A diesel motor and also had an original 4 speed manual which was removed and swapped in with a 5 speed manual. the truck runs and drives great never left me stranded or had any issues. i was told by the previous owner who did the tranny swap that he also rebuilt the motor at the time of the swap. as you all know the notorious mk1 odometer stopped working around 176k id say the shell has about 210k on it and the rebuild motor has much less miles but with this diesel miles don’t matter they will run forever with proper maintenance. the truck has brand new front control arms and bushings along with new front shocks and h&r lowering springs up front and brand new kyb just a shocks in the rear. there is also a new fuel pump other tune up parts. i installed mk2 OEM recaros in the truck and will also include stock OEM leather seats. the truck started its life off as a fleet truck for a telecom company up in mass and drove mostly highway but was well taken care of and also has extra leafs in the rear.

some flaws i would say is it needs some body work and a paint job, the bed floor is rotted but still solid and with a couple weekends worth of work this thing could look brand new again.

asking 450″ and will entertain all types of trades. bikes, trucks, cars, etc. let me know what you have and this is just a feeler as my time frees up ill be personally restoring this and taking it offline so offer up before i change my mind and keep it. 401-5two4-1five62.
