85 Turbo Diesel
Pros: runs strong! 75-ish thousand on remanufactured VW engine. 2nd bore out, w/ larger pistons.
new Boge gas struts & shocks late 2004
new pistons rings oct 05.
head rebuilt may 05.
turbo rebuilt jan 05
injectors replaced jan 05
starter, alternater, water pump, vaccum pump & lines all replaced w.in last 2 years
timing belt done last year. water, power steering, and alt belt replaced spring 06
glow plugs and relay all 1 yr old.
new master cylinder, front pads, rotors. steel brake lines last year. working on rear brakes. will probably replace E brake cables and re-do rear brakes.
new tires spring 06 - bridgestone potenza, sitting on 15" Borbet rims

cons: 230+k on body. has the 1st /reverse shift confusion problem, no dash illumination and the fan isnt connected through the relay (manual fan control). clearcoat coming off, dent in the front. average amount of rust.
nothing else jumps out at me.
what should it be worth to the 'Dub crowd?
this is more of a feeler for price. im not selling it anytime soon,but i might if i can sell it and get something a little newer / trade up. im goign to start running biodiesel, so im goign to be fixing this up to be my daily, but it was giving me some headaches, so i threw this up.
dont anyone get their hopes up quite yet.
