Find of the Day: 1980 Stanceworks Rabbit

Thanks to press trips and other nonsense, we’ve let Find of the Day languish for the past couple of weeks, but fear not FOTD is back and we’ve got a good’un: a 1980 VW Rabbit formerly featured on Performance VW and stanceworks.com.

This green stunner comes on refurbished BBS RS 070 wheels and suspended by H&R Ultra Lows, with a 3” shorted rear beam, and costume early strut mounts.

The effect is a visible, but tasteful amount of negative camber out back, which has become a point of contention lately. Regardless of how you feel about camber, though, this Rabbit is undeniably clean in almost every other detail.

Under the hood the engine has been given a thorough going over. From intake—Weber 45 carbs—to exit—Jetex stainless 2.5” exhaust—this Rabbit has been considered.

Inside, too, our Find of the Day is perfectly clean. With reupholstered stock seats, a custom headliner, a Nardi steering wheel and shift knob, and more this Rabbit is every bit the showcar it purports to be.

The interior is where one of the few problems with the Rabbit rears its head, though. Neither the gauges, nor the windshield wipers work.

If those problems don’t sound like too much for you, you can make @twofoteen, who’s asking for $13,000 obo, an offer.
