Clean 1984 Audi 4000S Quattro For Sale

I am not an Audi guy, but I am a VW enthusiast which is kind of silly I suppose.  I have been watching this seller raffle off his Audi’s for a bit.  They are always well kept, rare, and worst of all local to me.

There may be time for me to become an Audi guy yet.  This 1984 4000S Quattro may be just the thing.

From the seller –

“Selling off a few of my Audi’s..This is a Very Rare one I have had for a few years..Beautiful 1984 4000s Quattro. Metallic schwartz Black exterior, brown interior. Rarest Year of the Audi 4000. Power windows, power mirrors, power sunroof/moonroof, power steering, power brakes, power locks, cruise control. ALL WORK! Since i have owned it I have done many things to the car. Last October I had VERY RARE BBS front air-dam sprayed to match car and grill as well. Also at that time installed 1 piece Glass original European Flat Cibie Headlights in Mint Condition and VERY RARE.  Has side skirts from 85-87 years that i should have sprayed, but did not. rear spoiler is mint. Front Bosch fog lights with factory switch in car. H&R Racing springs with bilsteins which allow the custom for this car Konig 17″ Wheels/Hankook Tires with 75%.  Xlerator High Performance Stainless muffler and exhaust tip. In the last month I have done the Heater Core replacement and also the timing belt/water pump/tensioner roller. The car always starts and runs perfect and i have never had a problem with it. Just felt it needed these things done to be perfect. front and rear locking diffs. Tint Windows. Just under 157k, but i have been driving the car a few days a week so that is going up slowly..Power windows work well, power locks work well. car has clifford alarm. Cruise control actually works too..rare!! interior is near mint condition, headliner sunroof, sun visors all look and work well. no rips or tears and carpet and mats are like new. dash has cracks and that the only problem but i do have a dash cover that is custom for the car. Factory gauges added in tripod on dash. Battery was relocated to the trunk to make the stereo system clean. custom trunk amp cover with amp underneath and battery power core so no lights dimming at high bass. Also a fan is installed to keep cool. Alpine Stereo, 2 10″ pioneer subs, 1700 total watts. Cover works and u can use trunk just like normal. the stereo is custom thru out.

One red light mounted between handbrake and shifter and one in the lighter ash tray. Never been in an accident, VERY straight without any rust whatsoever. All pics of car on photobucket. my id there is hoopster21 and u can find the folder with the pics. This car is one of a kind and one of the nicest in the usa from 1984. It was the 1984 winter games official car. Most are ruined and been smashed in the wrecking yards. This car has no rust whatsoever, not ever surface rust. the hood has some scratches and minor paint cracking. pacific northwest car entire life, this car is rock solid and as rare as you will find. first year quattro sedan in usa. Perfect Carfax.”

Neat car and incredibly rare.  I gather there are not many stateside that are still upright much less in this condition.  Not to say this is mint, given the angle and distance of the pictures I imagine this Audi has its share of patina.  The car has more than 150k so I would expect that.

But it has lived with someone who cares, which is important.  From the sounds of it is mechanically sound and rust free.  That makes for a great foundation… dings, nicks, and tears can all be fixed with minimal investment.  Body rot, widespread mechanical issues, and awful paint are serious business.

Bidding currently sits at a few hundred dollars with a buy it now of nearly $6k.  The buy it now won’t happen but this would be a great driver for $4.5k.  I will be curious to see where this one goes.

1985 Audi 4000S for sale

Here’s a model we haven’t posted too many of. It’s no speed-demon, but the 4000S is a handsome sedan full of 80s style. Family-owned since new, the son of the original owner has given it some modern Jersey style. The overdone stereo and powdercoated engine parts are a bit much, but reflect that this car has been loved, not abused. It’d be even better with the 4000CS’s 2.2L engine instead of the S’s 1.8, but if you’re looking for power, start thinking about engine swaps. 210k miles down but with tons of new parts and a beautiful exterior, this is a nice vintage Audi.
