 This is an unbelievably clean 1984 Rabbit GTI with all original paint. Runs, drives and looks great. Currently tagged and being driven. No Rust at all!

Red on Red with No Sunroof. Black and Grey Recaro's and 15 inch BBS wheels are OEM VW from a  MK2 Jetta GLI.
The odometer is broken, which is common on these cars. Speedometer and all lights work, tachometer works 10% of the time.

 So here it is, my dream Rabbit GTI up for sale. I have been looking for a rust free Rabbit GTI for some time, and couldn't believe it when I found this one in Pennsylvania. I bought it earlier this year from a fellow VW enthusiast. The only reason it is for sale is because a car I've wanted since 2005 is now available, and I can't afford both. This is an amazingly well kept example that will increase in value if kept properly. It came with the Recaro seats, BBS wheels and euro bumpers. Otherwise it is stock. If the buyer would like, I will include 2 very nice original red GTI seats. I bought them to put it back to original, but really like the Recaros.
Since I bought it, I have done an oil change, air filter, coolant flush, Timing Belt, Water Pump, Thermostat, Alternator, Valve Cover gasket, AC Delete, Coolant pipe and all connecting hoses, temp sensor, preheat hose and a shifter bushing kit.
Also, some trim items, such as a new headliner, 2 rear hatch struts, hood release handle and cable, correct lug bolts, wiper blades, bulbs, etc.
The car has no rust greater than surface rust. It seemed unbelievable to me too, but its true. I've had it on a lift, and been ALL over and under it. No rot anywhere. And the paint is 100% original. Every panel, so no accidents, and nothing hidden. The paint is far from perfect, and has dings and chips on all most every panel. The worst is obviously the edge of the hood. I care more about original paint, so I had no intention of fixing it.
 A few minor things I haven't gotten to- Needs a drivers CV boot, boot included. Drivers front turn signal doesn't work, I will include a new socket to be wired in. While you're there, wire in the euro bumper turn signals, purchased from MK1 Autohaus and included with sale.

This car is listed with a very reasonable reserve. I reserve the right to end the auction early as the car is for sale locally. Please ask any and all questions BEFORE bidding! Car is being sold as is, where is. Thanks and good luck.
