Find of the Day: 1983 Audi Quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64937"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer The first thing you'll notice about this Quattro is the striking color. Originally black, it has been repainted in Galaxy Blue. While purists may chafe at the color change, I love it...similar to Sepang Blue which is one of my favorite Audi blues.

Find of the Day: 1983 Audi quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="64652"] words: Bill, photos: Throttlestop The ur-quattro was a classic the moment it arrived but its legacy has grown over the years. Today, it's getting harder to find one in pristine condition but here's one. It only has 52,167 miles and one spot of rust on the hatch. I don't know the ownership history of this car but it's being offered by Throttlestop in Wisconsin. Throttlestop just happens to be a sponsor of our Wisconsin chapter so maybe one...

Find of the Day: 1983 Audi 20V-Powered Quattro 6-Speed

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="61011"] words: Bill, photos: Chris S. via Bring A Trailer Chris isn't unfamiliar with restoring and older Audi. We had another one of his as a Find of the Day last year. I said this about his S2/RS2 Coupe quattro clone: First of all, I have to say this is how you do an ad for a car. Lots of details, lots of clear photos that are actually in focus. Well, he doesn't disappoint with this BAT ad. Here it is: This 1983 Audi Qu...

Find of the Day: 1983 Audi Quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="56512"] words: Bill, photos: Craigslist The Pacific Northwest...I've said this many many times but that region of the country seems to hold all the rust-free specimens from the Audi of yore. We've featured several Find of the Days from there and most are in great condition. Take this one. It's getting harder (and more expensive) to find an Audi Quattro and in my opinion, this one isn't priced out of range. Here's the ad: It has a clean title. 155...

Find of the Day: Euro 1981 Audi Quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="55127"] words: Bill, photos: Bring A Trailer I love this car. I mean who wouldn't? But my love isn't just towards the design nor the drivetrain...it's that interior. I've seen many Quattros but most have been leather or cloth.  This one has a mocha brown cloth interior with Zebra patterned inserts...delicious. Here's the ad: This 1981 Audi Quattro is a European-market model that was imported into the US in 1982 through California Porsche-Aud...

Find of the Day: 1983 Audi Ur-quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="50529"] words: Bill, photos: Angie Lang This floated my way the other day but yesterday's 1986 Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 Tribute took priority as the next Find of the Day. That doesn't diminished though what this car is: a 1983 Audi Ur-quattro in Mars Red. These cars are getting harder to find and this one looks like it's in pretty good condition. Here's the ad: 1983 Audi UR Quattro Miles: 77,000 Color: Red/cream leather Second owner at 27K mi. C...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="34991"] words: Bill, photos: Hemmings.com With the RADwood and Youngtimer movements, cars from my youth are climbing higher and higher in price. The silver lining though is that examples of these cars are popping up everywhere and in fantastic condition but...the price reflects this. Here's a fantastic example of an Audi Quattro for the low price of $85,000. Ok, now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's look at this time capsule. Here's th...

Find of the Day: 1983 Ur-quattro

[words: Bill Cho, photos: Hunting Ridge Motors] The cars of my youth keep coming back to haunt me. Haunting me because they're getting rare and the prices of the survivors are climbing. Finding a Ur-quattro in any condition is getting harder and even if you did, the price reflects the rarity. The 1985 example we featured at the beginning of the year sold at auction for $81,400. Oof. This one is offered by Hunting Ridge Motors for just...$59,900. A veritable bargain. Here's the...
