audi 200 5t project
« on: November 22, 2015, 09:46:23 am »
Hi, I am looking at rebuilding my old 5t, if anyone knows of a C2 100 0r 200 bodyshell or whole car
in repairable condition I need a shell! Very rare car seems a shame to break it up but needs major panel work.

A Typ 43 200 5t like this one? Wow, I didn't realise there were any of these in NZ. They were almost extinct in the UK 20 years ago when I bought my Typ 44 200 Turbo  ;D Sadly, as elusive as the proverbial rocking horse droppings by now I should think.   Am guessing you're going to need to be looking at Ebay Germany to be in with any sort of a chance for parts.

I bought the wheels and my dad bought the brakes off the 1981 light Green 5T from the Hamilton wreckers last year.
A guy from Blenheim bought the rest of the car to restore, so I sold him the wheels to go back on.

yep, that's the car I have it near Blenheim!
Its pretty complete (thanks for the wheels) but the rust is bad.
I have the engine running and have driven the car round the yard.
I managed to unstick the pages in the owners manual and it had a gearbox rebuild and tons of work over the years.
Whoever owned it was meticulous with the mechanicals and it is all logged.
I think it was in the Hamilton yard for several years.
I would really love to restore it but can see $$$ in the body alone.
I will try and post some pics if any interest.

Sad that it sat at the wreckers for so long. Awesome to hear that you have had some luck with it :)

I was offered one for free early last year (helps that everyone knows the audi guy in the hood  >:D)

Can check to see if its still about.

Saw one two weeks ago but can't remember where  ..... (enter senility joke)  :laugh:
