ULEZ Free from next year …

Here at Old Colonel Cars, the Classic and Performance Car Agency,  we are delighted to have this superb example of the legendary hot hatch, the Mk1 Golf GTi. This is a November 1983 example, with the 1.8i engine mated to the 5 speed manual gearbox.

This car has come from a small collection of Golf Gti’s, I have known about this car for some time. The owner of 10 years has now decided to let this one go , to make some much needed room …

This car has covered 230,000 Miles … I have been driving this car around all week and I can confirm it drives and performs very well, its an absolute delight to drive. This GTi starts and performs without fuss, the gearbox is nice and precise, the suspension and brakes all performing as they should. Despite the miles, this car feels very tight to drive …

As you can hopefully see from the many pictures / videos on our website, this car presents very well indeed. Everywhere you go, it brings a smile to peoples faces, always a talking point.

Look at the pictures underneath, all very solid.

Finished in the classic colour, Mars Red, with the matching striped interior ….

The car comes with a folder full of service receipts / old MOT’s etc.

This car represents excellent value, its very sensibly priced. You can actually enjoy this car without worrying about putting the miles on … What an excellent daily classic driver this would make.

The self confessed Gti addict owner has gone through the car including 4 new tyres just put on, its Mot’d until July 2024, passed with no advisories ….

This car is a lot of fun and ready to be enjoyed ….
