Description

This 1983 Rabbit is a true survivor. One of the few heard about, but seldom seen "Granny" cars. Estate sale. Purchased new in '83, garage kept. No AC, no power anything. Rare automatic transmission! Original AM/FM radio with antenna. Everything works, including clock. Unfortunately no old service records, but a fairly complete car fax is available. Copies of all recent records included. Owners manual! 60k original miles! No rust, all original, except steering wheel, which I changed to the GTI style. Original comes with car. Dealer installed seat covers! The front seats appear brand new under them, just like the back seat. Brakes, struts, tires all fairly recent before I got the car. Granny took care of this thing. What I've done: New Bosal exhaust/muffler Sylvania halogen sealed beam headlamps New Bosch battery, plugs, rotor and plug wires. wiper blades New O2 sensor Oil, filter, transmission fluid and filter, fuel filter, air filter Motor mounts and transmission mount replaced New drive belts, timing belt appears fairly recent. New star style gas cap Original style key with duplicates What does it need? The headliner is sagging on the drivers side. It has the usual rattles around the glove box, the new mounts helped a lot. Quiets down when warmed up and in warm weather. It stalls on right turns when the fuel tank is at 1/2 or below. I rarely drive the car and have always kept the tank pretty full. I was driving the other day to warm it up and get it out of storage for the day when I discovered this.It always starts right up after stalling, but is annoying to say the least. Research has revealed that this is a very common problem with these cars, and replacing the fuel tank is the solution. Google "VW Rabbit right turn" and read the thread from VW Vortex. EBay will not let me add the link. A tank is relatively inexpensive, $100-150, and if you're a DIY er, shouldn't be too bad of a job. Otherwise a couple hours of labor. I am not able to do this repair due to a disability, and will offer the car for sale as is. It runs and drives great,as long as the tank is kept at or above about 1/2. Once again, EBay has refused my link Entered in Cincy VW show this year in the water cooled category. Didn't win, but got loads of great reviews. This is an original, unmolested/unmodded US built MK1 Rabbit. Shipping from Cincinnati is not included.
