$4,500 – Knoxville, TN:
“Our 1986 MK2 Vr6 Jetta is for sale. We have had great success with this car but unfortunately we no longer have the room for it.
The Jetta was professionally swapped in the early 2000s and used as a show car before a hail storm dented the body and it was retired to a scca rallycross car. The vr6 conversion was completed using a 93 SLC donor car and included the full harness and fuse box.
We acquired the car, finished stripping the interior and added the cage in 2013 and have numerous top 10 finishes including: 1st at NCM and 4th at Mid Ohio.
The car has proven to be very reliable with a rash of broken axles as our only issue. This was corrected by replacing the front hubs. The car has raced at Charlotte, NCM, AMP, Road Atlanta, Mid Ohio, COTA, Barber, VIR, and PIR and can get 2hrs on fuel, depending on your driving style. However, 1:30 -1:45 was the norm for us. The car uses the factory SLC gauges and we’ve added a volt meter to watch the battery along with a thermostat override switch for the cooling fan.
The car has bumps and bruises but has never been totaled, into a wall, t-boned etc. The worse damage is on the rear driver door and has been like that since we bought the car. The windshield is cracked but does not obstruct driver’s view and has passed tech for 4yrs.
