The forums I pick the UCOTDs from are littered with project cars on this January Monday. I nearly picked a 1969 Opel Kadett that needed a lot of work — and I still could for tomorrow if y’all want — but instead I am bringing you a 1998 Volkswagen GTI VR6 that also needs work, if not quite as much.
There are almost 150K miles on the clock and the engine has a Vortech supercharger. The body needs work, mostly from rust and rot on the rocker panel. The interior leather also needs to be repaired. The seller also expresses some concern that the brakes might be too soft but says the engine is “strong” and the car is quick.
There’s a manual transmission.
The price is $6,500 and the car is for sale in Pennsylvania.
