1983 Audi Other ur Additional Info:

1983 Audi UR-Quattro A legendary, iconic and always desirable car that changed and influenced the next generation. This is a 3 owner car with 82k miles,one of 664 sold in US. The original owner had it till 1998 when the second owner bought it with 70k miles and drove it for about 10.The third owner bought it from him in 2005 and has only put a few more on it since and mostly stored the car with the intention of restoring it completely which never materialized thus leading to me purchasing it not very long ago with the same intention. The car has always been garaged since new. It was partially repainted a few years ago in the original color but has slight mismatching color on right door and various time related nicks and blemishes. All the panels are straight, and have excellent fit and, there is no rust issues anywhere. There are no signs of any accident damage. This is an honest car. The original decals are still on the windows and doors. The leather interior is original and in very good condition. The Diff-Lock panel was relocated under the steering wheel and VDO gauges were put in its place on the centre console. It also has a manual sunroof. The engine has just been given a recent tuneup with new fuel parts and vacuum lines and the complete fuel system has been flushed as the car has been in long term storage. The exhaust system could use replacing but not absolutely necessary except for the manifold which is cracked and makes an awful blowback noise. The car has been driven a few miles only, starts and drives and shifts solidly but although the tires are ok tread wise, they are very old and should be replaced. Various service records, original ownership paperwork, shop manual, old photos showing the car 20yrs ago and clear title come with the car. These cars have been steadily climbing in value the last few years and show no sign of slowing with beautiful examples,especially in Europe,routinely fetching around 60k Euros. This car in my opinion is a perfect candidate for a top quality restoration that won't cost a fortune. My intention was to go through with this, have already researched it and got very reasonable quotes to do it. It is definitely not the cost which scares me but as I live in Miami for about six months of the year and overseas for the rest, I have decided that I don't have the energy and the hands on time required for close supervision to go through the process and take a chance with any of the shops here, which some I'm afraid to say, scare me to get involved with so I have decided to sell it on again. This is a great opportunity for a true aficionado or savvy hands on person who can really go through with it, personally or with a shop or is willing to drive it as it is for a few more years.
