VW Golf GTi MK1 1.8 Campaign 1983 - Project For Sale

Here we have for a sale a rare 1983 VW Golf GTi MK1 Campaign model, in black.

This car was bought about 8 years ago from a family friend who had owned it for around 5 years, with the intention of doing the small amount of work that would make it excellent condition. Since us buying the car it has been kept off the road (stored mainly in a dry garage during this time). We are now having to sell as we have a baby on the way and have had to finally accept that we are not going to get round to spending the time on the car that we would like!

When we bought the car, it had brand new MOT and was in regular use. The fuel pump was noisy and a replacement was supplied with the car, which has never been fitted - this will be supplied. The car has been run regularly while off the road until about 6 months ago when the fuel pump gave up completely.

The car came to us with a stainless rear box fitted, stiffer and lower springs, and 120k miles. There were no problems with rust on the underside of the car, but we haven't looked since it has been stored. The bodywork is generally fair condition (original panels) but surface rust is now starting to appear. No problems with rust in the spare wheel well or around the filler cap.

There is a dent in the N/S rear panel about 2 inches long and surface marks/rust on most panels, though nothing too major. The rear brake shoes have been removed as they were stuck when we moved the car out of the garage for photos! Unfortunately there is not much paperwork with the car, though the V5 is present.

All 5 P-Slot alloy wheels are supplied with the car (currently sitting on odd wheels due to punctures in some of the tyres on the P-Slots). There are 1 or 2 P-Slot hub caps missing but the wheels are all there.

Overall this car shouldn't take much to get on the road - the fuel pump will need changing and it will need putting through an MOT. As far as we are aware, most of the other work needed is mainly cosmetic, though as the car has been stored for a few years and can't be run at the moment we can't confirm this for sure.

The car will need to be trailored away as cannot be driven.

More photos can be sent on request - message me with what you need.

We have other parts for the car that we have accumulated over time which will be selling separately, or can be negotiated extra when the car is collected - full seat set, headlights, filler pipe, etc.
