    Default FS: 1993 B3 Passat GLX VR6 wagon, 127k miles, $15k (Oakland, CA)

    Up for sale is my 1993 B3 Passat GLX VR6 wagon. I bought this car in 2013 from a fellow VW enthusiast who had a daughter on the way and bills to pay. It was half black and half green, with a destroyed beige interior. The glass was removed and the car was stripped down to bare metal for body work and paint. That work was carried out by Smitty's Auto Body in Meadow Vista, CA who specialize in concours-level aircooled VW restorations. After body and paint, I pieced together a complete black interior from Pick-N-Pulls across California and hunted down a bunch of rare OEM parts from around the world. The only reason I have for selling is that the project is done and I have nowhere to store it indefinitely.

    The Fifteen52 wheels in most of the pictures have been sold. The RockyMount bike trays and Nardi steering wheel will be removed, and the license plate will be changed prior to sale. I'm willing to ship both domestic and international. There are more pictures here. Please PM or email:
