Daily driver. She runs great and is ready to go now!
Maintenance and repair records on hand back to 2008
Kept up to date on oil changes and timing adjustments
Air-cooled and has never overheated on me
Easy to shift
Very low rust. One spot in the engine compartment and two on the driver and passenger door steps.
That paint job! Bright green with a yellow pop-top (any Ducks fans out there?)

Title is “Totaled/Reconstructed”. The previous owner was in a minor front end accident and deemed totaled by the insurance agency. I do not know the extent of the damage, only that she drives like nothing happened and has no structural damage. I can help you get in touch with the previous owner if you want to know the details.
Needs a thorough warm-up in the morning. Drives smoothly after the engine is hot.
Some oil leaks. Keep an eye on the oil levels.
Fog lights need to be rewired to work (Headlights/high beams are functioning)
Sliding door must be pushed from the back to close (cannot close/open from inside)
Ceiling lights do not work. You can dig through the electrical schemes to figure this one out. We simply hung LED lights around the ceiling and powered them with the solar panel outlet.

The extras:
Replacement light bulbs
Jumper cables
Car jack (needs a lever!)
Key for wheel bolts
Replacement points
Books on VW mechanics
Additional 20 gallon water tank that fits in luggage compartment on top
