1981 Volkswagen VW Rabbit Pick up truck
1.6 diesel - 90k engine estimated to have 5000 miles( was replaced before it parked 20 years ago )4 speed manual transmission ( even though the shift knob says 5 spee, silly people )
Factory equipped with AC ( have not tested i, all components are there and looks complete )
Sony Cd player with AUX ( i just installed i, the stereo in the truck was not working )
Red interior in very good condition - the truck over all is in VERY good condition.
Its an LX so it has the nice red headliner and rear material behind seat. The driver seat shows some pad smashing - but no rips or tears. Carpet is clean, dash is clean and free of any major cracks. Some tape residue is above the driver sidespeaker cover. All the glass is good from my quick inspection - the driver side glue style vent window is missing hardware so it opens at will.( i found a latch but too cold to glue )The tailgate is silver but does not look to match the paint perfectly and has bed liner spray on the inside. the bed of the truck is in excellent condition the paint even shines !
The tires are 20+ years old - I have driven this truck on highway up to 70 or MPH but have not traveled far distance due to these tires beingold and dry rotted.
Truck starts right up after cycling the glow plugs - No funny noises or anything. After removed from storage new wheel cylinders and brake, bearings were replaced by his " friend "who sold it to me.
The is clear coat peeling on both front fenders, not sure if they have been replaced then or just repainted? The front end looks all lined up like it should be. Only " rust " i have found is in the very rear lower part of the bed by tail lights. The under carriage is nice and clean - the exhaust must either be stainless or it was in a temp controlled storage as the exhaust looks NEW under the truck.

SOLD AS IS. In person inspection is suggested located at The Vehicle Rescue - 1520 Pioneers Blvd Lincoln NE 68502 402-770-0069
The title is the original title the original first title issued from 1981.
