Boy ‘oh boy you have to sort through a ton of questionable Rados to find something like this. My want list for a Rado starts with a bone stock, SLC, with lower ‘ish miles, and lovingly maintained. Check, check, check, and freaking check.
From the seller –
“Seller has 24yrs of experience as a certified Volkswagen mechanic at the VW dealership I work for. This car is immaculate and garage kept. I photographed the car and drove it, it is a solid car. I only noticed the Neuspeed intake, I am unaware of any mods. This is an extremely OEM car. Excuse the glare in the photos, this car looks much better in person!
-86k original miles
-new front brakes
-new sunroof assembly
-new driver window regulator
-newish pass window regulator
-2yr old distributor
-new coolant flange, thermostat and coolant temp sensor
-new ignition switch
-10 disk changer comes with car
-original rims w/ tires come with car
-2 keys and 2 remotes”
That is a lot of pictures but I am pretty smitten with this car. As a much younger man I remember taking a new SLC home for the weekend to wrap my head around buying it. Thankfully cooler heads prevailed, what does a starving college student need with what was a $23k car at the time? It would have been financial suicide.
But, the Rado did not make it a easy choice. Superb handling, fantastic build quality (for a VW), and the willing VR6 made for a very tempting proposition.
This particular Rado is in wonderful condition, loved, and owned by a VW tech. If you have been looking for a Rado this may be the one to act on. Price has been reduced to $10.5, which is a lot of German goodness for the money.
