October 30th Update: we first posted this B4 Passat just two weeks ago and at the time we thought the $6,950 asking price was a bit optimistic despite the low mileage. Apparently the buying public agrees as the private seller just lowered his asking price by $700 to $6,250 or best reasonable offer. We’d start by offering $5,350 based on the NADA cited below and then see what sticks. If you are serious about buying this Passat, you can call the seller Steve directly at (717) 319-8007. Good luck with the purchase!
Posted just in time for Wagon Wednesday here on Craigslist in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania is this 26.5K original mile “Collector Quality” 1995 Volkswagen Volkswagen GLX Station Wagon the private seller is currently asking $6,950 for. Judging by the NADA GuidesOnline Value Tool “Low”, “Average”, and “High” value range coming in at $2,325, $3,500, and $5,350, respectively for this generation of Passat, we believe the current caretaker may be a bit too optimistic. If you are seriously interested in this B4 Passat, you can contact the seller Steve at (717) 319-8007 or via e-mail here.
Volkswagen substantially restyled the B3 Passat first introduced in 1990 just three years later and despite being designated B4, it was not an all-new model. The facelift revised external body panels except for the roof and glasshouse, with the most obvious exterior change seeing the reintroduction of a grille to match the style of the other same-generation Volkswagen models offered during the period. VW also mildly updated the interior and added dual front airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners, although the basic dashboard design remained unchanged. The grille gave the B4 front end a more aggressive appearance. Volkswagen’s innovative new 2.8 Liter narrow angle V6 was an option on these cars such as the example featured here. Providing V6 power in the space of a typical inline-four cylinder mill, the powerful VR6 equipped Passats had a top speed of 139 miles per hour.
The private seller provides a great history and description, so we’ve included it here:
“Remarkable 1995 VW Passat GLX VR6 Wagon. 26,500 original miles from new! That’s only an average of a thousand miles per year! Collector Condition. I purchased this car from the original owner off e-bay Jan 2007 with 11,000 miles. I then transferred it to my mom because she liked it so much. Unfortunately my mom passed away on Labor Day so the car is now available. It is LOADED with Leather, Auto, Sunroof, Air, and Power everything. There is a remote car alarm with auto start installed although very rarely used. Super CLEAN and well kept condition. Still has the plastic cover on sunroof. Inspected till 7-2020 and brand new Interstate Battery recently installed. Tires have less than 1000 miles! Completely unmodified and unmolested. Adult owned and cared for. No collision history, rust, or paintwork. Does have some misc scratches and some small dings under close examination. Upgraded VW Rims from a Jetta GLI show some senior citizen curb rash. The only thing I can think of that it needs is the Air conditioning repaired or recharged. Not sure which. Although not pictured, I do have the rear storage compartment sliding cover in very good condition. I believe this was the only VW in 1995 model year that was actually MADE in GERMANY!”
We agree with the seller’s assessment this Passat is ready for reliable daily transportation or an additional to a robust VW collection. Whichever route you choose, good luck with the purchase!
