I am including another 1984 Rabbit GTI that is not currently running along with several spare parts I have. Looks fairly rough (hood, fender, and radiator support are bent), makes a good beater car or you can try to fix it up. I have a replacement hood and fenders. Needs some rust repair around the front windshield. Has some good parts, but still needs work. NEW parts in approximately the last 600 miles: Front wheel bearings, Ignition switch, Injector O-rings and sleeves, Euro Bumpers, Hella tail lights, Turn signal stalk, Grille, Front dash speakers, Black Carpet with Dynamat, and New Lock cylinders; doors, hatch, ignition, and glovebox work with one key. Other parts the previous owner put in: Transmission build by MPGAUTO with higher 5th gear for better fuel mileage, New Clutch, Shift linkage bushings, Drive shafts, H&R; Touring Cup Kit springs and struts, Timing Belt, and Radiator. Both cars have clean titles and are registered in Arizona. Location the Rabbit in Phoenix, Arizona, USA
