I have an '81 VW Rabbit Pickup.Less than 111,000 miles.Diesel 5 Speed, includes a nice Leer topper and a good amount of spare parts.Not running now due to a starter or solenoid I believe. I'll try working on it next few days and will keep you updated when it starts.
Includes a new solenoid and all the parts pictured.Engine bay is pretty clean, everything is intact and nearly rust free. No windshield cracks. Few cracks in dash. Interior is fairly clean, original and well kept for anolder car, original driver floor carpet is rough.Has Firestone Weatherforce tires, lots of tread in fair shape.Original tailgate is rough but includes a custom replacement.Located in Helena, MT and buyer is responsible for arranging shipping or picking up.Notarized lien free MT title included.

Gauges are Used never tested, as is.-2 spare handles/locks with chrome but No Keys-horn and quartz dash clock work-(only included if you want them) 6 various rough to fair but useful steelies with rough old tires
-some things I should have mentioned that I thought might not be so obvious in the pictures (don't want any surprises):- driver seat is pretty rough but old seat covers are there roll up & down well- minor surface rust on left rear quarter panel (I uploaded a 10 ft. pic of that side, will get a closer shot if anyone wants it).-white paint is still shiny and looks good. The black you see is a spray in bed line material-the diamond plate along each side of the bed seems to be quality matetial and install-has 2 door keys and 1 ignition...
Thanks for the interest!

The timer below the ashtray is not connected to anything. Not sure what it is there for.
