Per the seller:
Newly rebuilt 1600 engine (600 miles on it) with alternator. Replaced the crankshaft, all bearings, flywheel, camshaft, lifters, carburetor, one head, spark plugs and wires and all gaskets/o-rings. All machine work was done by Jim at Napa Carr Parts in Santa Cruz. He knows VWs and has been doing machine work on them forever. He helped me build a reliable, long lasting engine, not a race motor. Engine runs great and leaks very little oil (mostly from the drain plate which is an easy fix at the next oil change). All engine tin pieces are complete and it runs very cool.
The body has some rust and needs some work. Lots of dents, scratches, cuts, etc. There is a lot of rust under the truck including the frame but the floorboards are solid.
The truck's ride is not the smoothest due to the amount of adjustment that was done to the rear torsion plates to lower the rear. I believe the front beam was cut to lower the front but I'm not sure. Basically it looks good but the ride has suffered a bit but I have driven it with no problems.
All exterior lights work and the windshield wipers work.
Tires will need to be replaced soon.
Rebuilt rear axles.
New throttle cable.
Front seats are newly reupholstered and the rear seat is in good shape.
Would take $4800 without the motor.
