Neat car, while not perfect it is about as fine an example of a late 70’s Rabbit as you could find. To fetch top dollar this car seems like some PDR and a speaker grill away from being perfect. I also would not have gone with this choice of wheels, instead opting for some BBS RM’s or Schmidt wheels but this is a matter of personal taste.
The asking price is a joke obviously but I see how that could turn off some who were interested. That being said what do you think something like this is worth? The low mileage and stock ‘ish nature of this car should fetch $7-8k but I am guessing the seller is looking for more.
