For Sale: 1981 MK1 Jetta $3500
Up for sale is a 1981 MK1 Jetta that has a 1.8T swap “in progress”. The motor swap has not been finished, but has almost everything needed to complete the task. The motor is from a 1999 Audi A4. Wiring harness is from the 99 A4.
The 5 speed transmission has a Quaife LSD in it! It's ready to go! Just bolt on the axles.
Mileage is unknown, but I’m sure it was adult driven, never tracked, always had the oil changed every 3500 miles and allowed to warm up every time before being driven.
There is an intake manifold from a VW 1.8t as well as the correct exhaust manifold. The K3 turbo spins and very little play can be felt from the shaft. One of the items that will need to be sourced is a passenger side motor mount.
We had a brand new, 24 Hours of Lemons, spec’d roll cage installed by a professional last May. Once I picked the car up from the cage builder, I immediately sprayed it with Rustoleum self etching primer. The cage is solid. The floor pan under the driver is not, however, we have a brand new floor pan that will go with the sale.
We are going in a different direction and need this car sold, as soon as possible. That said, the price is sort of firm at $3500.
You will also be getting a bunch of spares as well.
