ONLY 81,000 MILES
FINANCE EXAMPLE - £1000 DEPOSIT 60 * £375 MONTHLY PAYMENTS
Here we have an excellent example of the VW Gold Gti Mk1, that’s covered 81,000 Miles. This is a March 1983 car, a very rare car, believed to be 1 of 2 factory Kamei cars. In the 80’s, Kamei produced a range of bodywork improvements for a number of manufactures, including VW, before becoming very successful with their racing program. VW wanted a range of these bodywork additions that could be fitted by the dealer, this is believed to be 1 of 2 VW built at the factory, to showcase these options, with the id plaque in the centre console. The wheels chosen for this GTi were produced by a company called Centra. They also produced wheels for various manufacturers, including BMW (E23 7 Series), VW etc.
Look closer and you will see this Gti is a superbly original car. Look underneath, look at the arches inside the body kit, look at the bottom of the doors, its all original solid metal as it left the factory. Most GTi’s have now been restored, panels replaced, welding etc. This is a matching numbers car. It’s very rare to find an original example like this. This car was off the road in dry storage for around 20 years, brought back in use and the mechanics lightly recommissioned ready for the road in 2016. Its a low owner car, with 4 owners in total.
The paintwork has a lovely deep shine, no dings, no dents. The interior is in excellent original shape.
The 1.8i engine runs and performs very well. Starts from cold with no fuss, very smooth and responsive power. The 5-speed manual gearbox feels nice and tight. The clutch has recently been replaced so is lovely to use.
The Mk1 Golf Gti makes for a fantastic classic. This example is ready to enjoy, take to your local show, it will certainly get lots of admiring attention.

It comes with original manual pack, Spare keys, Kamei brochure, a folder with plenty of old service receipts etc.
MOT’d until June 2020, its ready to be enjoyed now.
