TDI(s): Out of TDI's
Fuel Economy: About as good as it gets!

For starters, engine cooling hoses are missing, it has the wrong distributor, and the crankcase ventilation hose is missing. Otherwise, it looks like fun but without more details, like underside photos, it may be rusty. These sell for less in better condition. They were really pretty crude vehicles.

These were sold in 1973-1974 in USA I believe. 1979 would be a grey market import.
