1993 Volkswagen CorradoChassis has 246xxx miles, engine has 84k miles. I have no way to prove this other than that this car pulls stupid hard. I currently have two Corrados and this one pulls much harder than my OBD1 VR6 when it was NA. I’ve only had this for a week but wife says one has to go so this is the one. Exterior will need a respray or a wrap, previous owner ran over some street paint and clear coat is peeling in areas. There are some missing plastic bits but can be found here on EBay. Door grab handles are from the earlier Corrados. Sunroof and wing do not work. Windows do not roll down at which I thought was the window module so I purchased a new unit but it isn’t. Putting 12V to the window regulator and windows do move up and down. Could be a fuse but at this point I have not looked into it any further. Engine is strong and pulls well all the way to redline. I Was told it came out of a later gen Jetta GLX. Car has Bilstein Coil Overs and comes with a set of SSR 3pc wheels and BBS center caps. Won’t take much to get this car 100%. All work in the engine bay is top notch. Plastic thermostat housing has been replaced with an aluminum one. Inner tie rod has been replaced at least on the driver’s side, did not check the passenger side. Plastic radiator has been replaced with a thicker core aluminum one. Cooling fans (Very problematic and known problem for these cars) have been replaced with a more current style. Motorized seat belts do not work but are locked in the retracted position. Simple enough to unlatch and latch the shoulder belt. 90% of the Corrado Owners have replaced this with the Euro manual belts. There is no radio and no AC. I also have a glass sunroof that will come with the car.
My original plan was to turbo charge this one as my current one has a VF engineering Super Charger but as luck would have it wife pulled rank. Thank you for reading.
