1981 Volkswagen Other TRUCK
Selling my totally restored and updated 1981 Volkswagen pickup. Over 18k invested and it is a knockout. Factory diesel pickup with actual factory installed air conditioning. But the factory 51 HP non turbo engine would barely power this 2500 pound pickup to 65mph let alone have the ac on. So, I bought this totally rust free VW pickup from western Nebraska and then went about installing a low mile German built 1995 1.9 TDI engine that I had shipped here from California. The mechanical fuel injection pump is newly set up with 90HP output and a 5 speed OD transmission. The engine was updated with everything new from VW or Bosch parts including timing belt, glow plugs, injectors, seals, gaskets, water pump, turbo, starter, alternator, just to name a few. Complete new 2.5" custom exhaust with magna flow .
The complete clutch, axle shafts, front springs and Billstein strut assemblies all brand new. New rack and pinion steering, power brakes, rotors and drum assemblies. All brand new. Runs 85 mph down the interstate and fires right off anytime.
Body was never rusted through anywhere including shock towers and had shell since new over the most perfect bed floor. You wont be disappointed about the quality of the paint and body. It has a brand factory new OEM Volkswagon tailgate(cost $1000), along with NOS tail lights, turn signals, VW OEMgrille guard, and VW front spoiler andon andon. Even has nos European issue Bosch hallogen glass headlamps. The oem bed rails are a factory original option and are very rare and expensive. New 14" Michelins on factory VWCabrio wheels. Also has factory console with tachometer, amp guage, and oil pressure option. All these guages are NOS VDO pieces too. It has NOS OEM upholstery in original bronze/red vinyl and door panels. New black sport headliner and perfect dash and leather steering wheel.Custom one of factory reproduction 3M "SPORTRUCK" stripes. Truck was taken totally apart, blasted, and a professional PPG base clear paint in factory 2010 Corvette yellow paint inside and out. Metal rear sport valance was added for a clean rear look. All backup lights and tag lights are halogen or LED.
Don't know what this awesome rare VW is worth but only put 4k miles since complete restoration and ready to move on to my next project. Will do a buy it now for $12500 if contactedand no trades please. I guarantee, you wont find another one on this planet in this shape or optioned out like it. It is stunning and a blast to hear that turbo spool up through the 5 speed. Also have a new Rostra electronic cruise kit in the box that will go with the truck along with another 1981 VW parts truck full of engines transmissions if wanted. Also have Bentley shop manual.
Require $500 pay pal deposit within 24 hours of sale and balance of payment in 7 days by bank transfer or good cashiers check or cash. Can stay inside for 30 days and can help load on your arranged shipping company. It will also drive anywhere with ease and 40 to 45 mpg. Very well restored and detailed.
