Volkswagen Golf GTI


car description


The car was registered on 21st October 1983 and whilst it has had a total of ten owners, having received a full nut and bolt restoration, the car is in about as good a condition as you could wish to find.

The current owner acquired the vehicle on 23rd November 2013. He is a known member of the MK1 Golf Owners Club and has cherished the vehicle in his ownership, spending a fair amount of money on a few finishing touches for the car.

He had purchased the Golf from the owner that conducted a full restoration on the car and had owned the car for over 9 years. The restoration included a bare shell re-spray, full engine rebuild and all parts being replaced with new or restored as required. Even the underside of the car is highly detailed and like new.

The current owner is now simply not finding the time to enjoy this lovely MK1 Golf and cannot bear any longer to see it sat idle. Therefore, he wishes to pass it on to someone who has the time to enjoy it and continue to care for it as it deserves.

This MK1 Golf GTI is currently driving on a private plate (not pictured) of GLF 188V – spaced to GLF 18 8V – which is very fitting for the 1.8 litre, 8 valve Golf! This plate can be purchased at £895 or the car will revert to its original plate.

The car is priced at £13,995 without the private plate, which we feel is a very reasonable price given how much money has been spent on getting it to its current, high standard.

This Golf has 143,600 miles on the clock and is HPI clear. The car will have a fresh MOT put on it for the new owner. The car will be sold as a private sale directly with the current owner but please liaise with us for further information and to organise a viewing.

Any inspection is welcome and please contact us for further information and more photos.
