Find of the Day: Volkswagen Passat G60 Syncro

This Find of the Day comes to us via a recent Craigslist binge.  While stumbling around the site we found this 1992 Volkswagen Passat G60 Syncro, complete with period-correct Hella quad round headlights.  Finished in Steel Blue, the Canadian-import car surprisingly does not appear to have any rust and looks to be in decent shape for the 175,000 miles that the seller claims it has traveled.  Recent maintenance includes the timing belt, rear brakes, and a supercharger rebuild with the stock pulley swapped out in favor of a smaller unit.  The seller does mention that the speedo stopped working and the emergency brake cable snapped, which will need to be addressed by the new owner.

Everything considered, this seems like it is priced right.  We struggle to think a of a quirkier car that can be had for the $4500 asking price.  More pictures can be found below, and additional information can be found on the Craigslist ad.
