Longtime reader Sam was selling his “Blue Colonel” Rabbit Pickup in Portland but saw another extremely clean Caddy for sale at the same time. It looks like the Blue Colonel has sold, but this beautiful little LX – leatherette and wood dash included – is still looking for a new home. It’s covered 134k gentle miles and spent most of last 15 years in a temperature controlled garage. Everything looks original in the best of ways, including the clean engine compartment. $6k is a pretty common number for diesel Caddys, but we’ll see if this excellent gas pickup can swing that much too.

This is a super clean 1980 vw caddy Lx edition. It has been in a temperature controlled garage for the last 15 years and has been driven very little. Truck has 134000 original miles on it. Also has a very clean interior. The motor the original 1.6 and runs pretty good. Not too many trucks like this one left.
Most of the nice Rabbit Pickups have at least some level of modification, updates, or rough spots. This one looks just about perfect. Hopefully it can find another steward to keep it well cared for and stock.
Many thanks again to Sam for the tip!
