1981 VW Rabbit Truck - Diesel “Caddy”

Rare opportunity to own an awesome classic. These don’t pop up very often and when they do they aren’t as solid as this original paint beauty.

This is a Super Solid West Coast Truck! It still has the California plates on it, ut they are not included. A friend of mine from high school drove it back from California in July. So the truck has been on the east coast for less than 6 months. It has never seen an east coast winter or salt.

This truck;

  • Runs good
  • Drives good
  • Shifts good
  • Stops good
  • Steers good
  • Tires are good
  • All lights work good

It is road legal and currently registered and insured until Friday Dec 8th.

This is a very original truck with no modifications. It is very complete and would make an awesome driver or restoration project.

I do not have the CA title. I only have the CA registration and will also write a bill of sale. I can obtain the title for the fees the DMV charges if need be, ut it will take some time to receive it.

This truck still has the Original Paint and has virtually zero rust, ust a very few minor surface as pictured. The little bit of rust it does have is very far cancer rust. You don’t find unrestored vehicles that are 35 years old and look like this very often. Don’t sleep on this one!

It’s a VW, o it will need some tinkering. It leaks oil (not sure from where), he water pump needs to be replaced and I think it might need a CV joint soon, orn does't work, peedometer doesn't work, ilage reads 87,119, ut is closer to 130K,but all the wheel bearings and seals were just replaced and I have receipts for over $3,500 of work completed since 2013.

Some of those serviced items included:

  • Oil Change
  • New Oil Filter
  • New Alternator
  • New Drive Belt
  • New Wheel Bearings
  • New Glow Plug Fuse
  • New Glow Plugs
  • New Fuel Filter New Axle Stubs
  • New Axle Shafts
  • New Glow Plug Relay
  • New Shifter Bushing
  • New Strut Mount

I also have the original owners manual, ut it’s not in the great of condition. All receipts and owners manual will be included in this sale.

I put a video of the truck starting, unning and driving on youtube. Just search Holy Grailz 1981 VW Caddy and it should pop up at the top.

Deposit of $500 is due within 48 hours and the balance is due within 7 days. Please do not bid if you do not have the money.

Thank you and best of luck
