1980 Volkswagen Rabbit Sportruck in Lincoln, NE
Very cool rare old 1980 Volkswagen Mk1 Rabbit Sportruck - PROJECT. 1.6l Gas engine 5 speed manual transmission. Got this out in Western Nebraska a year ago - been sitting a shed / barn. It was parked because of rust - i loaded it up and had a local shop weld up some support under the truck on passenger side lower control arm area - then also some inner fender well repair on that passenger side to make the truck " Safe " to drive. I also flushed fuel tank - did new rear brakes ( drums ) and wheel bearings and fresh e brake cables. The truck runs and drives - took it on a few road trips. Then the clutch started slipping and i parked it. ( please read above also about the alternator voltage regulator ) The truck will start ( with a jump start and drive around my shop but once that clutch gets hot it doesnt like to work it just likes to slip. Please inspect the pictures for the rust ! its every where ! But what are going to do - throw the truck away? No - i replaced the truck after thinking about ABA swap for awhile and collecting parts. I would bring a trailer and $2000 in cash ( i am losing money at $2000 FYI ) If it does NOT sell by end of July i will replace clutch and sort alternator and then ask $4000.
