This truck was an original SPORTRUCK model and came with GTI trim and other extras like tachometer, factory A/C and Power Steering. This is NOT a project car which means you can just drive and enjoy it instead spending your weekends working on it for the next few years.

I’ve owned this car for the past 18 years and never spared any expense making improvements. When it’s not in use, it rests in my garage and is not driven in the rain. The factory assembled 2.0L engine block was purchased new and is not a rebuild. The 8 valve GTI head was ported and polished with larger valves to produce more power, and is very reliable. The throttle body was also upgraded to match. This car will cruise at 80MPH all day if you need it to. The taller 5th gear allows it to run 3000RPM at 70MPH and get almost 30MPG. With all of its practicality, it handles like a sports car. This car has a high-flow CAT, runs very clean and always passes smog with flying colors.

Interior was redone with all VW parts, including new headliner and carpeting. The seats are set of power height adjustable Recaros from a Jetta GLI.

There are also some additional parts, which I will include at the asking price:
- New in box driver and passenger window trim
- Original rear bumper painted the same color as the body
- New set of VW South African rear bumpers
- Spare set of light sport wheels
- New in box VW passenger side window (the one on the car has a few scratches on it)
- New Original VW silver VOLKSWAGEN lettering for the tailgate
- New Original VW European Duckbill Spoiler
