Hello, as you can see I am new to the forum. However, I am looking to get an early model Diesel Rabbit. I have found these three on Craigslist, and two of them sound like pretty good deals, except one won't start, and two of them (77' & 84') are in Tulsa (I'm currently in Fort Riley (Manhattan) KS. Also, The third (79') is in Lincoln, NE and the guy want's $4,000. What do you think?
4000 is a bit much. It's not that desirable of a classic, but it does appear to be in the best shape.
I'd be scared of anything that was 20+ years old and cranked but didn't start/run. It might be a simple fix, IE replacing the starter cable but it could turn out to be a nightmare.
Very true, So I guess Ill have to see it first before I decide...
