1981 Volkswagen Jetta

Hello and thank you for viewing my auction listing. I reserve the right to end auction early due to a local sale. If you have any questions about this please feel free to call me at 860-818-0945.I'm Dave

Thisis a wonderful find! This 1981 Volkswagon Jetta 2dr 5sp manual has been sitting in a garage about 9 miles from where I live for years. This Jettawas locally purchased and has never left the area all of these years. This is a one owner vehicle. I have the original title from 1982 and all of the original keys and even extra keys. The owner donated the vehicle to a charity and I was able to purchase the car from the charity.

This vehicle is 100% original in every way. It is extremely clean and has no dings or dents anywhere. Although the frame is beautiful there are a few rust spots on the body that I left alone to sell this vehicle totally original and untouched. If thesethree or four areas were repaired this car could be in a museum. So to explain in detail the body is beautiful but there are rust spots in front of both rear wheels and behind both front wheels. This vehicle is structurally solid and little rust areas are only cosmetic. The factory steel wheels with VW metal wheel covers are in pristine condition. The tires are in great condition and are matching Mastercrafts. The front grill and headlights etc. are all in beautiful condition. The rear end and lights etc. also look fabulous too. Overall this Jetta's exterior is wonderfully preserved and needs very little repairs to small rust spots to be in show condition.

The interior is even better. The dash, headliner, door panels, seats etc. all look wonderful as if this car has been in a time capsule. The only thing to talk about is the seats both back then were stuffed with what seems to be like a straw. The straw has deteriorated over time and although the seats are pretty much mint. I would recommend removing the seats and re-stuffing the side panels. The drivers is much worse then the passengers. The radio is original and works, The AC turns on but isn't really cold and probably needs to be evacuated and retrofitted with R-134A. There are going to be little things I'm sure I may have missed but overall this vehicle is in far above average condition!

The engine starts right up. The battery is brand new. The old fuel was drained and re filled. I can see the Bosch fuel injection system has been completely replaced at one point. The clutch grabs great! The radio works fine as well as all of the gauges too.The brakes feel awesome and overall this Jetta has been very well maintained although I would recommend driving it through a full tank maybe with some cleaner in there to fully cleanout the old fuel that was sitting in it! The suspension feels great and I was quite tempted to put on some BBS mesh wheels and a roof rack with a surf board but business is business and I always want to keep half of these cars for myself! Overall this diamond in the ruff starts right up and is ready to drive immediately but I would maybe go through it a little deeper than we did to assure longevity in your ownership experience!

Please feel free to call me with any questions at 860-818-0945. I also can arrange transportation of the vehicle to you. Please also call the above number for a shipping quote. Vehicle is a 1982 Vehicle.Vehicle is being sold as where is.

Thank you and good luck bidding!
