As sad as it is, I am looking to sell my Weber carb'd 86 CGT. I have literally thousands of hours and dollars into this car, The car has a TON of new parts replaced recently, as well as others that were replaced prior to it being off the road for 2 years to get it to the current state. I really hate to do it, but I'm now engaged and must let her go to someone who can give the attention she needs to get her right. I'm sure with the right person, it wouldn't take much at all to make this one of a kind cgt a show-winner/feature car.
Newer parts are as follows;

New parts replaced in the past 12 months.
SACHS clutch kit
fuel filters
clutch slave cylinder (German)
Timing belt water pump kit
all new accessory belts
brand new oil pump drive sprocket
gaskets and seals top to bottom
PS filter
OEM hardware
Mustang-mod motor mounts
034 delrin snub mount and bracket
NGK platinum plugs
cap and rotor
re-sealed PS pump
Aluminum fuel line from tank to engine bay
NEW Interstate battery
Recently did the 2 piece strut conversion and it is now running B5 A4 calipers up front, with new HD strut mounts, new wheel bearings, new proper ball joints, new shocks and Pi lowering springs (have the rears waiting to go on with the disc axle)
more that I'm sure I'm forgetting at the moment..

replaced before car was taken off the road for rebuild.

Clutch master cylinder
custom bent sway bar links and urethane bushings to run a coupe quattro sway bar.
new tie rod assemblies
new control arms and ball joints
subframe bushings
rear wheel bearings
Plug wires
both clutch fluid lines, from master to slave replaced with OE Audi parts.
both CV axles
cam followers
headlight switch relayed


front grill and lights from an 84 cgt
"custom" chin spoiler(from a ford truck)
audi 90 15" wheels
chocolate brown (looks black) front and rear seats and door cards in great shape
custom rear window speaker deck (could do with a re-trim)
carb manifold of unknown origin. I have seriously looked and asked EVERYWHERE, and cannot find out where this manifold came from, it is NOT VAG, I'm certain.
CIS delete replaced with Weber 38/38 outlaw synchronous carb with edelbrock manual choke
battery relocated to trunk
AEM wideband with brand new bosch sensor and brand new wiring/cables (gauge is fidgety, so may need to be replaced)
rare, true 5-2-1 two piece exhaust manifold (ABT I believe I was told?)
2+1/2" DP back exhaust with flowmaster muffler
black painted "coupe" rear reflector bar (have mint condition stock one that will go with the car as well)
push button start box installed in DS compartment/cubby hole thingy
carter fuel pump in the engine bay
practically every part of the engine was painted either flat black(block, head, PS pump, etc) or burnt copper (brackets, valve cover, timing cover, intake mani, etc.) flaking a bit now.
entire A/C system deleted
272 cam
about 90% of engine bay wiring is sheathed and secured with current OE Audi wiring plastics (I thought it looked.."neat" :dur: lol)
head had a mild p+p and a 5 angle job done about 5 years ago
brake vacuum pump deleted

Extras that will go with the car:

A bin full of stuff. Extra door seals, good condition sun visors, one intact sunvisor clip (!), extra tail lights, mint "coupe" rear reflector, stock headlights and trim, other misc. stuff
new KYB rear shocks
rear disc axle with prop valve, new textar pads, and a pair of brand new rotors
over a dozen Weber carb jets to properly tune the carb
Bentley and Haynes manuals
brand new radiator
complete manual window parts, glass and all down to the winders (driver door card is off atm)
cleaned and plasti dipped black and in great shape manual mirrors (complete)
brand new CORRECT ebrake cables from Germany
a few other misc. things
and a 3"+ thick folder of records and receipts.

Solid car with only surface rust on the sunroof and along the sides where the trim was removed and bodywork begun (just sanding, lost my garage before I could go any further :/ )
Pulls hard and is VERY torque-y
One of a kind carb conversion, that I have yet to see anywhere else on the planet, lol.
Able to illicit instant ricer jealousy :D
seats/door cards in great shape

Car is currently not inspected! I switched the stock cam back in and will need to play with it to get it past the smog nazis, I have simply had no time to get to it and seeing as I walk to work, it hasn't been imperative. But I will get it sorted out for any interested party!

Needs minor body work TLC and paint
will need tires soon
dash is beat in the usual spot (indentation)
headliner has some sag pockets above the sun visors.
some small isolated damage to pillar trims (was going to re-trim everything)
lever adjust system for the seats reversed from type 81, to type 85, so adjustments are a little more involved. the pin has to be pulled by hand, at the rail.
blower fan speed switch is starting to go. From 1-3 are perfect, but 4 is being a bitch and doesn't want to work.
Oil pressure gauge is out of its mind. Rarely works, and when it does, it spazzes out for a bit, then falls flat again.
cowl cover is missing
cluster dimmer is disabled
(The hood release cable and handle are totally absent from the vehicle, has hood pins)
can't really think of anything else atm..

This car is FWD!!!

I'm very, VERY sad to do this, but I really need the money. Some things have come up and priorities have changed.(c'est la vie.)

I'm looking to get $2500 OBO, which I do believe she is more than worth. But I will consider all offers, and am working on getting some pics up. If anyone would like pics before that happens, text or email me, and I'll send some right away. (I have hundreds, many build pictures as well)
Thanks for looking!

Um... what hapened joey? Just got some of those parts to you last month. Text me.
hump day bump.. I am open to offers..
im sad to see this go... ive purchased parts from you, and i love this car...
Make offers, please. lol
depressing lower price need it gone bump
Bump for time wasters not knowing the difference between a CGT and an UrQuattro. :(
Still FS, listing updated to weed out the clueless.
Got engaged, need it gone bump. Someone please give her a new home and the attention I no longer can at this time!
Not going to sell much here without any pictures
Bump, need this gone. Might be losing the spot I'm storing it at. $2500 or best offer for everything. Will take pics after work tomorrow and post tomorrow night.
Pix up..finally! Had a busy weekend...

Only if you are thinking of buying it.. :)

Dunno.. Doesn't look rusty, but no interior pics either..

Really though: ... Price realized *when it sells* is the correct answer.

Market conditions will determine the 'when it sells' timeframe..

May be a day or two, or may be months (which may be the tradeoff for getting the requested price).
I'll post my opinion, not just to be an asshole but also to help bump the thread, since I genuinely wish you luck with the sale. Call me crazy, and I haven't owned a CGT before, but this looks more like a $1000 car to me. $1500 maybe. But GLWS.
the carb thing is very odd also and no real mention of how it performs. I do not see it being better than cis just different and probably not tuned to perfection so probably not even close to as good.
