FFotW: 1979 5000S


Posted 11.07.2011

At Fuelfed we always liked the long hood short tail proportions of the first generation Audi 5000. Not the best electronics, but VW helped with the engine and fuel injection. Good luck finding a rust free mint green on pleated green leather 5000s here in the midwest. Too bad about the auto box, but an S6 engine & tranny swap would make an interesting one-off hot rod.

The CL States:

All original!
93k miles
interior is near mint condition!
Green leather
exterior in amazingly great shape!
light green metallic color
5-cylinder gas
power windows/doors/sunroof
original 14 Audi alloy rims

Runs and drives amazingly well! Only issue is transmission does leak when hot due to water entering the trany from failed cooler. The cooler has been replaced but trany needs a good flush or possible overhaul to clear out all water.

$1900 Wind Lake, WI.
