I bought this as a personal rig, not for the dealership, and then a few days later found another one that I'm keeping instead. Can't keep both so this one will be available. I wanted to offer it here before I retail it through Outland. It really is one of the nicest I have seen and driven but I found a 4-dr LHD 300tdi which is what I was originally hunting for. I've only had her for a few days and will already be sad to see her go. Anyone interested let me know. Feel free to call and I can tell you more about it.
1984 110 that started life as a pick-up. Converted to a 2-dr wagon and done very nicely.
300tdi - extremely clean and done right. Starts up first time, no smoke, purrs along.
46K on the odo - no idea if it matches the engine or chassis or both - who knows - but the car overall looks to have no more than 46K miles on it.
Doug Shipman in Portland did oil changes and usual maintenance and gives it high marks.
I bought it just last weekend and drove it over the mountains from Portland to Bend. Averaged 27mpg and cruised at 70 all the way. Runs like a top. No leaks, no excuses.
Was originally green and repainted red as a pick-up. Doors, door jambs, rear wagon parts, etc. were painted matching red when PO converted it. Footwells, seat boxes, bulkhead, and truck bed floor are green. Personally I would paint the entire rig back to green but the red gets a lot of attention and looks great. It does have a few very minor spots where the red is chipping off but you have to look for them. Driver door has a slight dent/crease and some wobbles but all easily repairable.
Frame is solid and Doug thinks it's a newer frame (some talk of this car being a 97 or having a lot of 97 components - motor, frame, interior.)
Interior is exceptionally clean. Seats look almost new, rubber mats in back are new, bench seats are new, headliner is new.
Some bonehead painted the engine and bulkhead with an olive/military green. I'd clean it all off because otherwise the engine is very tidy.
I haven't had time to detail it yet so you are seeing it "dirty." Imagine it clean.
What else can I tell you?
