One of the most complete Craigslist listings I have read in a long time. Asking price for this dashing Dasher is $3,900. I’m really not sure if these early Water Cooled Volkswagens have reached collector car status yet, but this is certainly a candidate. to read the entire ad, and tell me if it’s time to dash off to retrieve this Dasher.

    Oh yeah! I've seen this on the Samba for months. Surprised no one has snatched it up. If it was a manual, I'd be all over it!

    • Giannibu

      It was on Daily Turismo a few months ago too.

  • nanoop

    I grew up in Europe of the 80ies, and can't remember any example that was so.. not rusty. I'm expecting healthy paint under those chromed wheel well liners!

  • RichardKopf

    I've yet to see one here in Germany.

    • nanoop

      It's an early Passat, or Audi 80 (don't know if the fastback came as an Audi, though), if that helps. The thing is: they rusted away before the cold war ended.

  • stigshift

    That could be a great car for someone who hates measurable acceleration. My Kingdom for a stickshift…

  • saabseller

    Very easy conversion to a stick shift. Did one on a Sunday once. You can go auto to manual but not manual to auto … Transmission tunnels are different.

    I believe that color is Brazil Bronze Metallic, I had that on a gen I 79 Scirocco 5 speed; wish I could find one of those in this shape.

    I'm seeing a lot of bronze and root beer brownish metallic recently on new Japanese cars; last time those colors gained popularity were in the Carter malaise years, similar to the economic times we have now. Maybe certain colors have a psychological origin?
