1982 Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup

4-Speed Manual, Diesel


  • Alloy Wheels
  • Manual Transmission


Stick shift alert!  This 1982 Rabbit pickup is an awesome, clean and original blast from the past.  The 1.6 liter diesel engine runs like a sewing machine and the 4-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly.  Recent services include a routine valve adjustment, upgraded oil pump and high capacity pan, oil change, upgraded BBS wheels, and Neuspeed springs/Bilstein shocks on the front suspension.  If you know the old Rabbits you know a couple of the common problem areas – the strut towers are solid with no no rust started and the dash is not cracked.  This one is ready to roll for whatever use you may need – a work truck or a daily commuter that gets awesome fuel economy.  Call Pete at 319 393 8496,

Note: Very clean body, Odometer shows 122K but is clicking miles slower than it should. Could use strut bushings and a front wheel bearing. O.G. radio does not work. Very good condition, very well cared for Rabbit diesel.
