For sale is my 1980 Audi 5000s which I purchased on eBay 10/2016 from an audi enthusiast on the east coast who had purchased it from its home since new of California in 4/2016. The 5000 has a Salvage branded title due to it being purchased from an insurance auction by the previous owner whom I acquired the vehicle from where it had no keys, and in rather dirty shape with flat tires. The previous owner cleaned the car up inspected it rebuild the transmission, changed the front tires, and had new keys matched. I then purchased the 5000 to add to my 1980s german car collection, and went through the car as much as I felt necessary to replace as follows:
ALL OEM REPLACEMENT PARTS:-fuel filter-air filter-5 bosch spark plugs-bosch spark plug wires-bosch distributor cap-bosch distributor rotor-victor reins cork valve cover gasket-gates metal impeller waterpump-NOS audi/VW radiator-bosch battery-reman. bosch alternator-all new drive belts-new timing belt-Audi/VW coolant flush-new tires-new OEM replaced resonator and rear exhaust
Also included in the sale is a complete head gasket kit with valve seals etc, should you ever need them, as well as snow chains for audi 5000s, car cover, 2 extra timing belts, new unused master cylinder.
CONS: This audi is in excellent condition, although I have had my fun 1400 miles with it in the last 1 1/2 years and its time to pass her on to another good home. (I have several other 1980s german projects at the moment) First of order on the list of cons, the trunk randomly decided to lock and not unlock no matter what we have tried, there is nothing of value in there other than the spare parts listed above. The audi has a rough idle at times but under load is fine, as well as the original catalytic converter rattles at idle, with this being said, the car still passed CA smog test no problem. other tiny things that need TLC, the power locks stopped working after about 6 months of ownership, the power antenna makes noise going up or down but still works.
PROS: My goal with this audi was to make it a reliable daily until I realized it was more of a weekend "grocery-getter" rather than an everyday commutable driver. I have taken rather good care of it and it gets looks and thumbs up most places. contact me through eBay with any questions or for viewing/test drives. I am negotiable on price, but please keep in mind that this car is sentimental and I do not NEED to get rid of her. -Jake
