    This is a Running and driving (Yard only as it will need to be checked over before returning to the street) VW. I am a collector and I have restored Caddys and done some customs as well.
    I bought this one in a group some years ago to restore, due to the rust free body and the low mile paperwork.
    It was stuck in the back of the garage and I just never got to it.
    I have one left I want to do a custom on
  • so it is time to pass this one on.
    It is a non-coast Florida car, it has some surface rust on the body and a few very small rust holes.
    The bed is solid with just a few rust spots.
    The rockers and floor are solid and still have the factory undercoating and paint.
  • Glass is good, windows go up and down.
  • The driver seat has a seam split dash is in above average condition for the age of the truck
    I dropped a battery in. changed the fuel filter, checked the oil and coolant, and fired it up. Ran it around the yard, rinsed the dust off and took the pics.
    The fuel in it is old. but the coolant system holds pressure as expected.
  • Tires are 90% on original steel wheels with factory hub caps.
  • The engine has AC compressor on it so either the engine was changed out or someone was planning to add AC.

  • (reserve is $1200)

  • I have a video of it starting, and one of it running and I can send them to you.
