1979 Volkswagen Scirocco

Reluctantly selling my 1979 Scirocco MK1

I had plans to keep this car but life happened and something has to go. Scirocco comes from Seattle Washington, as two owner car, second being from 1987, and its currently residing in Boston MA area. When I purchased this Scirocco it was not driven for a bit, In August last year I replaced timing belt, serpentine belt, oil and fuel filters, 4 new tires, I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Mileage on the car is 86k and it is original, odometer works and its 6 digit.

It drives fantastic, feels like its on the track, steering is direct and precise, sounds wonderful. I had owned many cars over the years, most much more expensive than this little VW but not many that drive this well. It fits like a glove.

At some point in its life this Scirocco has had few upgrades, nothing crazy but still worth mentioning, front seats have been replaced with Recaro style seats, comfortable yet hold good, Momo steering wheel, variable timing cam sprocket, period crazy sound system, and in case you are wondering what those bolts are on the rockers, I believe at one point it had roll bar that is no longer there. Cibie Headlights and period correct Foha front spoiler. Engine is producing 75hp factory specs, and I believe this one may have few extra, smooth shifting 5 speed transmission and a good clutch.

Overall this is great little Rocco, some surface rust here and there, few dings and dangs, passenger door shows evidence of previous body work but is limited to that door. Could use paint job if really going crazy with it.

Here is a short you-tube video taken today, I went for a 50 mile ride https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r_KXtgFplBY
