1997 Volkswagen Jetta GT
5 speed

Only reason for sale is I have 4 cars and i want to replace this with another toy. Runs and drives fine but has some easy issues that i haven't gotten around to. I've only driven it a couple thousand miles in the last couple of years. I drove it down to H20i and back with no issues. Lately I only drive it on weekends or to car meets.

shifter linkage needs to be adjusted
no muffler [car was too low kept getting ripped off]
I've beaten the quarter panels to suit wider wheels
original cluster doesn't register speed [I replaced it with a mk3.5 cabby cluster w/40,0xx]
subframe is shaved down from being lower than an inch from the pavement [pro or con you decide]
CEL due to no catalytic converter [chip can fix the CEL]
dent on driver side fender [can probably pop it out]
small dent on trunk from getting pushed by a car when i was stuck blocking an off ramp

I rarely drive the car
CX Racing coilovers w/ damping 10k/8k
CCW reps 15x8/9 et25/15
Corbeau harness
Trek seats w/ bolsters
clutch/pp replaced 09/13 maybe 2-3k miles on it
intake manifold/gaskets/fuel rail/injectors 09/13
rotor/cap/plugs/wires 06/13
waterpump/t-stat/housing etc 06/13
motor and transmission raised 09/13
metal skidplate to cover fuel lines
i bought the car with a bunch of maintenance records but I'd have to look for them

theres more i'm forgetting but its a solid little car I just never drive it anymore.

make an offer
