The Story

1990 Corrado purchased in 2007 with 59K miles in all original condition. The day after buying it the G60 was pulled for a TDI engine swap and it racked up approximately 100k miles before being swapped to a 3.6 VR6 in in 2016-2018. This is the best condition Corrado I have owned out of 20+ previous Corrados.
