Between my Sciroccos, I bought a new Dasher wagon; Alpine with tan vinyl interior. It had the damned gearshift I’ve had in ANY car before or since. Over the 3 I had it I made it into a GT sportwagon. list of mods. It was a great car for the fact that it ate A/C compressors popcorn. VWoA must really pissed off the York at some point in time.

My wagon came stock like this one, down to the 2-piece wheel It ended-up with the chrome around the wheel openings straight into the trash, with the cheesy chrome at the leading edge of the hood easy strip-off). I had the bumpers matte black flex-paint; a improvement over the dull from the factory. Starting at the I put Cibie quartz headlamps, and driving lights under-bumper. I the engine alone, save for the primary venturi restrictor inside the throttle body. In when the Dasher diesel out, I ordered the diesel-only foam underhood insulation pad quieted the engine down). At the I installed a Bosch rear fog and my favorite accessory ever, my Cyberlite (a very trick center-mounted brakelamp that the federal law by 10 years), and a Monza system with twin-tips. A GMP Motors and

Parts of North Carolina, my source for modding accessories for suspension upgrade, with coils and Bilstein shocks and swaybar (front stayed issue) went on. Tires and were upgraded to BBS 14×6 and tires were Michelin XVS this package gave the the excellent stance/look and improved and roadability that the car’s indicated.

Inside, the already very interior (one of VW’s ever until many later) got upgraded with a Fittipaldi steering wheel, and a GTI golfball shift knob I home from Germany. The Dashers had a stupid BIG clock in the in place of a tachometer, so I purchased the 3-hole faceplate through GMP and a small OEM VDO tach from the Fox partsbin, along with the VDO volt gauge, and a VDO oil-pressure In the empty bin beneath the gauges, I a Blaupunkt 50-watt (sounds now, but it was big-power then) unit to go with the Blaupunkt head-unit (the one with the remote control unit), and ADS in all 4 doors and the cargo area. A electronic radio antenna the

stereo system. A woodworker of mine crafted a very and thin walnut veneer to go over the fake wood the instrument cluster and A/C controls; looked really good.

I wish I could show the of my Dasher, but they’re all slides, so It was a terrific car, and showed how a Dasher/Passat wagon could look, IMO. It always got of compliments, especially at race where the VW enthusiasts gathered thickly in those days.

Leave a comment, too; I feedback! Thanx for reading.
