Oooh, good question :) If your '81 has 6-point socket screws, the torque spec is 50Nm (37 lb/ft), then another sequence of 70Nm (52 lb/ft), and finish up with another sequence of 90Nm (66 lb/ft). If your '81 uses 12-point socket screws, the torque spec is 40Nm (30 lb/ft), followed by another sequence of 60Nm (44 lb/ft), and then torque each screw an additional half turn with a breaker bar (NOT the torque wrench!). Additionally, here's the torque sequence if you were looking at the motor: (10) (4) (2) (6) (8) (7) (5) (1) (3) (9) Good luck! And, get the proper gasket :)

How much is a 1881 volkswagen rabbit convertible worth?

A 1881 VW Rabbit convertible would be worth its weight in gold; however, I believe you are referring to a 1981 VW Rabbit convertible which is worth far less. In *perfect* condition, with the right buyer, and low miles, in a good economy, and diesel its worth about $3k. In good condition (diesel) its probably worth $1750. In great condition (gasoline) it should be worth $1000. In fair condition $500.
