Offered for auction is our 1981 Volkswagen Caddy which has been here with us at our Volkswagen dealership since 2007. We purchased the car as a showroom novelty, as a performance car, and because our owner loves unusual Volkswagens. (Wait till you see the 2001 Eurovan with R32 Motor and the 1978 Dasher we'll be listing!!)
When we bought the car it was already fitted with a big-valve 1.8 (GTI 8-valve motor) said to be good for about 115 bhp; we drove the car back from Atlanta and I'd say the horsepower claim is accurate. It has Mk 1 GTI coil-over suspension on the front and leaf springs on the rear. The handling is phenomenal, I would not hesitate to do a Club track-day with it. Techtonics cat-back, Techtonics headers, custom mid-pipe. Sounds awesome, but not too loud.
SINCE WE GOT IT:
* Round Headlight Conversion: Involved replacing both front fenders, radiator and core-support, front bumper, front lip, round-headlight grill. Hella 'Cross-Hair' Headlights.
* Complete Paint & Body Restoration
* Custom Interior with shaved Scirocco leather seats wrapped in leather and suede. Custom dash with all Autometer gauges, custom stereo, new carpets
* Customised engine bay with powder-coated strut-bar and other powder-coated parts
* Spec Miata Lightweight alloys with sticky Toyo R888 Rubber

Beautiful running/driving example of the rare VW Caddy with a Big Valve 1.8. Freshly painted and custom interior. A couple of things on the interior need finishing: Glove-box door, Trim around shifter and shift knob need refitting. Also missing lower body moulding both sides.
