I recently bought this Audi and finally picked it up today. I'll show you some pics before I tell you a bit more about it.
It's a '87 model, so a pretty early car. The B3 was introduced in '86. It's also pretty bare spec - so far, I think the only real option box that was ticked is the fog lights. The engine was only made from '86 til '88 when it got replaced by the 2.0E. It's a 1.9 liter inline-four with 113hp.
The body is in very good shape - no rust that I could find, no visible dents and dings. The rear bumper obviously needs to be replaced. A car that was parked just behind the Audi went up in flames a few years ago and the bumper melted. There were some shark edges on the melted bumper, so the previous owner simply cut the melted strip out of the bumper.
The interior is pretty decent up front with no major flaws. The rear is okay too, except for a few big stains where some white paint spilled. I'll see if I can get this cleaned up.
The engine... well, it runs. But not very well. I'll see if I can get it back in shape, if not I'll probably just replace it with a 1.8 or 2.0.
I bought this together with my old man as a shared project for some bonding time in the garage. Well, we'll either bond or we'll kill each other.
The plan is to restore it back to how it was when it left the factory, completely stock. Then register it on historic tags and drive it around whenever we're in the mood. Possibly a road trip to Ingolstadt to visit the Audi Museum.
I've currently got my Porsche sitting in the workspace as it's waiting on a new generator, but once that's back on the road work on the Audi will begin. I've already found a replacement rear bumper which I'll pick up in a few days.
