1981 Volkswagen Scirocco S

1981 VW Scirocco S, original Mars Red paint, non-sunroof and working AC. Original CA car stored for 16 years. Previous owner bought car in in 2010 and brought car to WI in 2015, no winters rarely driven, garage kept. Have clear WI title. Have original CA registration from 1982 as well.

This Scirocco is in exceptional condition with only one small rust bubble on the decklid lower left by the window seal (see pic). Floors, rockers, fenders, quarters, etc. rust free. Super clean and hard to find in this condition. Paint is all original except for upper drivers door, which was repainted early in the car's life, and paint is slight off color (see pics). Paint just had a stage 2 cut and stage 1 polish, taking care to go easy on the original paint. Underhood, door jambs, truck all shine. Car has some dings and scratches, paint is not perfect but shines well for original. Missing S spoiler (was damaged), missing some window trim on pass. side.

Interior is in very good original condition. Headliner intact, seats, door panels and carpet original and presentable. Small hole in rear seat bottom, dashboard is cracked and has cover. Original horn button is included but missing tabs. Needs a few small trim pieces here and there as seen in pics. Rear parcel tray is faded and cut with speakers. Trunk is clean with carpet and original spare.

Glass is all in good shape, including windshield.

Everything works on car, runs and drives well. Working AC, been converted to r134 and could use a fresh charge (can of r134 included), air blows "cool".

Car shows 125k, but odometer stopped working, mileage is estimated at 135-140k according to previous owner

Car was recently given a thorough shake out by Ben of Ben’s VEE DUB Shop in Madison. One of the best early watercooled mechanics in the nation.
More pics available. Car is currently tucked away in garage, awaiting new owner.
