1980 Volkswagen RabbitA last minute move is forcing me to get rid of my baby.
Currently not running. Here's it's story:
Bought this truck 2.5 years ago to be my daily commuter. For the first 1.5 years that I have had it, t did 100+ miles of commuting 5 days a week. I routinely got 40-45 mpg. I then moved much closer to work and only used it for weekend trips here and there. At one point I had it parked for nearly 2 months without having started it. When I did go to start it I got no cranking at all. The dash still lit up with the key inserted but that was all. That happened in about July of 2015. It was my plan to get her running again this winter but a sudden move is forcing me to get rid of her ASAP. It seems like it might just be a dead battery that's stopping it from starting up, ut I haven't checked.
Here's what I know was wrong with her when she was running. High beams/turn signals not always responsive. Both would usually work if you held the lever is the appropriate spot. Temperature gauge on dash not responsive, hough I never had a problem with overheating. I did have issues with air getting in the fuel line, hough I fixed that by cleaning out the fuel tank and replacing certain fuel lines. Driver side door handle doesn't work from outside. Runs loud.
Manual transmission, -speed. 40-45 mpg. The original color is pistachio green. I've got the roof repainted but that's it. It's a gorgeous color. I've also got a spare front bumper stored in the bed that will be included in the auction. The truck is currently registered PNO in california with no fees due. Located in pescadero, a 94060.
That's all I can think of right now. Please shoot me any questions and I'll do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. This truck is not currently running and must be transported by another vehicle. I will need a $500 deposit on the truck within 48 hours of the auction ending or it will be offered to the next highest bidder. Shipping of the truck must be scheduled as soon as possible after the auction ends. I am moving and cannot keep the truck here long. Sold as is with no warranties. Please email me with any questions.
