Time for another parts roundup, and today I’m focusing on some aftermarket and rare parts. There are some really desirable pieces here, and some pretty horrible looks (I’m looking at you, Kamei). What’s your favorite, what would you like on your ride or what would you like to see?

The Volkswagen Fox GL Wagon we featured last month is back up for sale at no reserve. For those who like their Volkswagens with a bit of South American flavor, these Fox Wagons are affordable and rather rare modern classics.

I’ve been writing up quite a few Vanagons over the last few months that are more affordable options, meaning they lack the Westfalia or Syncro options. Today’s is one of the great ones that has a very long name and a longer list of upgrades. We’ve seen some of this variety edge towards the better part of $100k, but this diesel-swapped and fully repainted Westy Syncro can be yours for less than $40k. It’s not a modern TDI but a rebuilt Audi 5000 turbodiesel, coming together for an efficient package that can take you anywhere. It’s still a lot of money, but a very cool Vanagon and a deal compared to some out there.

The 1977 Volkswagen Rabbit with 2,000 miles we featured a month ago is back up for sale, with a lowered Buy It Now price of $7,700. Is this possibly one of the lowest mileage, unmolested Mk1s out there?

For many enthusiasts, the Corrado SLC VR6 is still the ultimate Volkswagen – but even if it’s not, you can respect what a solid piece of engineering it was. The Corrado was really a Halo car for Volkswagen in many ways, and while the G60 motor was a bit underwhelming for the weight of the Corrado, the VR6 provided the right soundtrack and power output to rightly place the coupe amongst one of the best front wheel drive cars ever produced. These superb 2-doors have never really gotten very cheap, but that’s generally been good for enthusiasts now – by being a premium product, the Corrado has in general been kept out of hands that were incapable of keeping them in good condition. What we get, then, are occasionally a great example of a coupe that really performed on the level of many sports cars, but still offers Volkswagen practicality and enough room for 4:
