SOLD: 1985 Audi quattro

One of the best examples of the classic ur quattro available.  Very rare Canadian car.  Original Tornado Red paint with black leather interior.  1 of only 17 quattros imported to Canada in 1985!  Desirable and rare non-sunroof version.  167,000 KM.   Clear Michigan title.  Retains original metric instruments - I did not convert anything when I imported this car to the USA.

Over the course of the past 3 years, this car has been totally sorted out by Phil at Auto Europe in Birmingham.  Phil was an Audi mechanic back when these cars were brand new.  I basically gave him permission to check and correct anything that needed attention.  The car was great when I bought it, but it's even better now!  New hard fuel lines, clutch and slave cylinders, hydraulic bomb, alternator, starter, water pump, timing belt. tires, battery, master cylinder, rear differential bushing, center driveshaft bearing, etc., etc.  

The car has a modified head and a modified ECU to allow use of the Euro wastegate spring.  A joy to drive.  This must be what it was like to drive one of these cars brand new.  No rattles or squeaks.  Strong performer.
