If you've ever searched for a nice Volkswagen Corrado, you surely know that finding one is no picnic. It wasn't the most reliable car, and many were removed from the road with problems not deemed worth fixing -- and then there were crashed cars, cars that rusted away and, of course, examples that are tucked away in garages that never reach the market.

But the Corrado is cool, so it's easy to see why you might want one. Sold in the United States from 1990 to 1994, the Corrado was offered in two versions: A supercharged 4-cylinder model called the G60, which was available from 1990 to 1992, and a V6-powered SLC version that was available from 1992 to 1994. The SLC had a bit more power, and that's exactly what you see here.

Indeed, this is a 1992 Corrado SLC, with the 172-horsepower 2.8-liter "VR6" that also went into the Mark 3 Volkswagen GTI. This Corrado has traveled 160,000 miles, which is a lot, but it appears to be in nice shape -- with just one glitch: it's losing compression in two cylinders. It likely needs an engine swap, though it's not especially challenging to find the Corrado's powertrain for the swap; you'll just need to knowledge and time to do it.

So, this Corrado isn't perfect, but if you're looking for a nice one, this could be a good candidate for a project -- and it's available from a private seller in Huntington Beach, California, near Los Angeles, for $6,000.
