March 2023 Classic & Performance Car Auction

 
  Lot 27
 

1982 Volkswagen Golf Cabriolet GL
*** NO RESERVE ***

Registration - LYU 801X

Chassis No. - 15CK010843

M.O.T. - June 2023

Odometer - 127,544

As you sit by the nearest heater praying for spring to arrive, your thoughts may also be turning to some economic wind-in-the-hair motoring. In which case this Golf GTi cabriolet being offered at No Reserve might just fit the bill. There’s no denying that it’s lived a little, and was purchased as a project car by the vendor in November 2020, but he’s run out of time – hence the sale. As a relatively early GL model it is powered by a 1457cc VW engine that’s coupled to automatic transmission. Its black bodywork is teamed with a black hood and pale grey fabric upholstery, and the car these days rides on a set of five-spoke TSW alloy wheels. The odometer indicates a total mileage to date of 127,544 and, according to VDI Check, the Golf was declared a Category D insurance write-off in November 2020. However, it has clearly recovered from that episode and is now considered by the vendor to possess ‘good to average’ bodywork, ‘average’ engine, paintwork and upholstery, and ‘average to below average’ gearbox. He adds that the radiator fan is not currently engaging as required and that the hood, though supported by a ‘good’ frame, has some minor areas of damage. He is now offering ‘LYU 801X’ complete with JVC stereo system, the promise of a new battery by the time of the sale, a selection of invoices, and a current MOT valid to June 9.

The cabriolet version of the Golf first saw the light of day at the Geneva Salon in 1979. It was built entirely by Karmann at Osnabrück on behalf of Volkswagen – they carried out every process from the stamping of the bodies to the final assembly. Aside of a larger fuel tank and smaller spare tyre from 1984 onwards, the specification remained unchanged until the MKI cabriolet was replaced in 1993 by one based on the Golf MKIII – there was never a cabriolet version of the MKII.

In summary:

  • A nine keeper example currently displaying 127,544 miles
  • Declared a Category D insurance write-off in November 2020
  • Being sold at No Reserve
