This beautiful unmolested MK1 Golf GTi is finished in the classic factory

and all other body trimmings are perfect and scuff free. An out of sight

on the rear valance to the same side are barely worth a mention. The

all pristine, clean and unworn. None of the plastic trim has been damaged
and all the controls work as they should including the original dealer fit
Blaupunkt Paris R23 tape player and multi-function digital computer. The
unique 'Campaign' leather trimmed sports steering wheel shows very little
wear. Optional centre console sports gauges work with precision and
complete this incredible, factory original interior.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This cult-setting car is in excellent mechanical order and really boasts
what early GTi ownership should be about - tremendous fun! The engine
produces 112bhp at 5800rpm and 109Nm of torque, enough to sprint to 60mph
in 8.2 seconds. It really drives perfectly with a distinctive, addictive Exhaust note. The engine bay is detailed
and spotlessly clean. The 5 speed sports gearbox is precise and is a joy
to use. This hot hatch is exactly how the manufacturer intended.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This superb Golf GTi is fitted with the unique, Campaign only, and highly
desirable 6J x 14 Pirelli alloy sports wheels which all remain in excellent
condition. They are shod in correct and new Pirelli P6000 185/60 R14 tyres.
The servo-assisted diagonally divided dual-circuit braking system with
discs in front and drums at rear do an adequate job of stopping the car.
Supplied new by Jack Barclay VW Dealers on the 7th October 1983 to Morgan
Guaranty Ltd, (now part of J.P. Morgan & Company), who sold the vehicle one
year later after 3,237 miles. The second owner, Mr Paul Gittings,
purchased the car for Â£7,419.50 and was completely fanatical and
obsessive. His 13 year diary remains in the history file and logs
everything in incredible detail. Spark plug changes for example were as
often as 2000 miles and even the spark plug box lids were cut off and stuck
in the diary! Needless to say the following five keepers have all
cherished this car belonging to 'Club GTi' and keeping it in perfect,
factory standard condition. The mileage at 161,542 will not be believed
The original VW Dealer blue document holder is also with the car and
contains all the owner's manuals and instruction pamphlets. Even the
Blaupunkt stereo range catalogue is present from 1983!

Here it is. The full vid for Tom's MK1. He restored the car pretty much by
himself. That's dedication. I can only hope that the video does justice to
how clean the car is.
