Used Car of the Day: 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI
We're going hatchback today with this 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI.
This car has a manual transmission and the seller, who has owned the car for six years, says it appears the mileage is accurate at 164K and that it appears the car has been well maintained and hasn't needed a major service.
The seller says the interior has been restored and has the original radio player, but the A/C is not connected and the rear wiper doesn't work.
Apparently, the body is rust-free. The seller says there is a box of spare parts, and the car is all stock except for a Neuspeed upper strut bar and Euro-style bumpers.
This Maryland-based ride is on sale for $10,500. Click here to check it out.

- Tassos Your title says FORD to offer blah blah, but on the photo there is a DAMNED KIA instead What gives?
- Dukeisduke There were aftermarket ac/c systems for these - they used a plastic duct with vents that sat atop the transmission tunnel.
- GrumpyOldMan I had a '73 for around 18 years. It had a foot operated windshield washer pump, four grease fittings (one on each each door hinge), and coil spring rear/transverse leaf front suspension. No trunk, but a good size luggage area behind the seats. Almost made it to 200K miles, but the tin worm got it.
- Dukeisduke As far as I'm concerned, the jury's still out on the new Tacoma. I've read about too many new Tundras with mechanical problems like failed wastegates. I'm not confident these won't have similar teething problems. Toyota should just stay away from turbos.
- TheDrake I owned a ‘69 GT back in the mid seventies and it was a great little car. The 1.9 liter engine in a rwd car that weighed around 2,000 lbs made for a fun ride. Maybe the best handling car I ever drove, felt like it was on rails.
