For the Uninitiated. here is a brief history of the AUDI 100 (C1 chassis):
The origins of the first Audi 100 have become legendary in Germany. When Volkswagen purchased Auto Union from Mercedes Benz in 1965. they seem to have been motivated by a desperate shortage of production capacity for their 'Beetle' model which at that time was selling faster than the cars could be produced. The then nearly new Auto Union plant atIngolstadt. built under Mercedes ownership and control. was quickly adapted for Beetle assembly: Volkswagen boss Heinrich Nordhoff. mindful of the poor sales record of the DKW F102. and at a time when the new Audi F103 had yet to prove itself in the market place. gave instructions that no further new Auto Union (including Audi) models should be developed. However. it was not just the Ingolstadt manufacturing facility that Volkswagen acquired from Mercedes when they purchased the Auto Union business. Among the employees inherited from the Mercedes era was engineer Ludwig Kraus. Kraus did not share Nordhoff's apparent conviction that demand for the Beetle would remain insatiable forever. and it was Kraus who developed the Audi 100. in direct contravention of instructions from Volkswagen management. and in secret. The first Nordhoff knew of the project was when he was presented with a production ready prototype. It is to Nordhoff's credit that he changed his mind and gave the car the green light. The Audi 100 would be a commercial success. but it would also be the first of a series of front-engined water-cooled Audi based designs from the Volkswagen group that would. starting with the first Passat in 1973. enable the group to survive and flourish once the European and US markets began to lose their appetites for rear-engined air-cooled models. The Audi 100 was shown to the press on 26 November 1968. Its name originally denoting a power output of 100 PS (74 kW; 99 hp). the Audi 100 was the company's largest car since the revival of the Audi brand by Volkswagen in 1965. The C1 platform spawned several variants: the Audi 100 two- and four-door saloons. and the Audi 100 Coupé S. a stylishfastback coupé. which bore a remarkable resemblance to the Aston Martin DBS released a year earlier. especially at the rear end. including details such as the louvres behind the rear side windows and shape of the rear light clusters. Audi followed up the introduction of the four-door saloon in November 1968 with a two-door saloon in October 1969 and the 100 Coupé S in autumn 1970. The cars' four-cylinder engines originally came in base (100. 80 PS/59 kW; 79 hp). 100 S (1. 8 litre. 90 PS/66 kW; 89 hp) and 100 LS (1. 8 litre. 100 PS/74 kW; 99 hp) guise. while the Coupé was driven by a bored-out 1. 9 litre developing 115 PS (85 kW; 113 hp). From April 1970 the 100 LS could be ordered with a 3-speed automatic transmission sourced from Volkswagen. The Audi 100 enjoyed a level of commercial success for which the company had not planned. As a distinguished German commentator pointed out. the rough engine note was unlikely to discourage buyers whose first car had been a Volkswagen and who aspired to drive a diesel powered (pre-turbo) Mercedes-Benz.  Despite running the Ingolstadt production line at full capacity. supply fell short of demand to such an extent that during the summer of 1970 an additional production line for Audi 100s was set up in Volkswagen's own Wolfsburg plant. which made it the first water-cooled car to be produced in Germany's (and by some criteria the world's) largest car plant.  Starting with model year 1972 the 80 and 90 PS versions were replaced by a new regular-petrol-variant of the 1. 8 litre engine developing 85 PS (84 hp/63 kW); at the same time. the 100 GL was introduced that featured the 1. 9 liter engine formerly used in the Coupé S only. In March 1971 the 500. 00th Audi was produced. By now the Audi 100 had become the most commercially successful model in the company's history. so it is unsurprising that the car in question was an Audi 100 produced at the Ingolstadt plant.  In September 1973 the 100 received a minor facelift with a somewhat smaller grille and reshuffled taillight lens patterns. The rear torsion bar was replaced by coil springs. For model year 1975 the base 100 was re-christened the 100 L and received a 1. 6 litre four-cylinder engine (coming out of the Audi 80). A four-wheel drive prototype of the Audi 100 C1 was built in 1976. long before the appearance of the quattro.

Sold to Leif Jeppson. the one and only owner of this vehicle. he purchased the car from Philipsons of Gothenburg.
To give you an idea of the sort of person he was. he kept a book that recorded every time he filled up with fuel. where and when. the cost and the current mileage. I have 2 folders full of information including the original sales brochure. the bill of sale. the original handbooks. Test certificates. receipts for work and parts etc.
This car is in a very good original brown. it has seen a number of harsh winters in Sweden so is not perfect but good for original 38 year old paint that has been snowed on every year.
The car is very solid because the cars in the North of Sweden do not rust like they do in the UK. She appears to have never been welded.
The inside is a comfortable place to be and is in very good condition. I don't think he used the rear seats. it shows some signs of wear but is in an excellent condition and has a Factory Fitted Steel Sunroof.
The car has few electrics. but has a period radio with rear shelf mounted speakers. headlight wash wipe and day time running lights (as per Swedish law)
Is a VW 1600 manual 4 speed with an auto choke carb engine that runs great. it is a very reliable unit that has 85ps
As you can see. this is in excellent condition.
The car is currently on Swedish Registration. but will be registered in the UK for the new owner
I can deliver the car for £1 a mile within the UK or from 500 Euros to Europe.
I have other photos if required.
