Yeah until I saw the seats I wasn't sure where I had seen it.
Often times, recovered seats don't look too good. The leather look ill fitted compared to OEM seats.

Talk about a sleeper.... The want is really strong on this one.

Even ignoring the engine swap, I want it. Sportrucks are awesome. 1980 trucks are awesome. 1980 sportrucks are even more awesomer.

I really like that truck! I've got a 1980 lx caddy, maybe I should get some sport truck emblems... Maybe not. It's getting a TDI swap, so it'll be fast enough, but probably not 1.8t fast. I think the 1980 is my favorite of the front end styles.

Just another Bay Area time capsule car. 47K on the clock!

Per the options sheet, this is a sunroof delete car. Other interesting options include front bumperette delete, model designation delete and carbon interior package with aluminum/carbon shifter/brake. MSRP was $125,500 in 2001.
Wish mine was a sunroof delete car. Otherwise I have 120k less miles than that. Amazing that the 996TT is appreciating so well

That's a pretty sweet car, few things strike me as odd, exhaust looks like one of those aftermarket replacement bosal mufflers, stock exhaust probably rotted off as is common with these, looks rust free otherwise though? also weird one window on the left side has no tint, lol.

looks better on the factory steelies, those alloys look really out of place.

I don't see a lot of upside from the $8k ask on this one.

1st gens aren't as popular as the 2nd gen. The automatic doesn't help either.

It's a sweet time capsule though. I thought the 86 CRX Si I bought last fall was nice. It's nowhere near this clean.

Wow that is clean. I wonder how much more it would fetch on BaT?
Honestly this is one of those examples of a car you pick up locally on CL, clean/sort it (although it looks pretty good already) and flip on BaT..if you're into that sort of thing.
