Such a beautifully cherished and immaculate Volkswagen Polo really is a very rare find indeed. Finished in original and very rare solid Evergreen, (Code LA6C), the factory panels are pin straight and the paint finish is simply incredible with a beautiful uniform shine throughout. Owned from new by a retired lady, garage stored and serviced religiously each year despite only covering 13,462 miles, this example is certainly one of the best in existence. The underside is superb and even the even the wheel arch apertures are spotless. Meticulous close scrutiny reveals little more than touched in chips and very light scratches and a tiny ding to the offside rear wheel arch, barely worthy of mention. Originality seekers will be pleased to see supplying Volkswagen dealer rear number plate and rear screen sticker. In a wonderfully quirky colour, this is an extraordinary example throughout.
The term ‘time warp’ can often be misused but is absolutely suitable in this instance. The ‘charcoal’ fabric upholstery, (Code EK), is perfect with no visible wear or markings to the seats and matching door cards and the carpets have been protected from new by genuine Polo over mats. Aside from some scratches to the driver’s door pull, the interior plastics, fascia and trim are as new and items such as the steering wheel and gear knob display prominent veins found only on low mileage cars. All equipment and controls operate perfectly including the ice-cold air conditioning and the switchgear has a satisfying quality feel. The immaculate boot area houses an unused space saver spare wheel along with the original jack and wheel brace. The factory build options label remains attached to the boot floor. An interior that is difficult to distinguish from a showroom example 20 years ago!
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The original 1390cc four-cylinder petrol engine develops 60bhp and 116Nm of torque to achieve a top speed of 99mph and 0-62mph in 14.5 seconds. Far quieter and effortless acceleration and cruising capabilities are achieved over the smaller engine models and the
5-speed manual transmission feel tight and precise. The engine bay is super clean, as are all fluids, and original features such as factory stickers, plates and panel stamps remain untouched.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The standard E specification 13in steel wheels are shod the original hubcaps which are fully intact with some light scratches visible. Quality Firestone 175/65 R13 are fitted all-round and show ample tread. Anti-lock brakes (ABS) are standard factory fitment and the car pulls up to a steady and straight halt.
Registered new on the 1st September 2000 by Main Dealer, T.Hayselden Ltd of Barnsley, the car was purchased new by Miss J Barlow upon her retirement. The car has covered a fully warranted 13,462 miles from new and each year the car was taken to her trusted local garage for servicing and maintenance work. Despite the low mileage covered each year, annual servicing has been upkept with no less than 17 service invoices along with the original stamped service booklet. Furthermore, there is the complete handbook pack containing all dealership point of sale literature, separate invoice file and two sets of keys with the unused T.Hayselden Ltd dealership key fob.
In September 2020 Miss Barlow decided to cease driving due to advancing years and the car was purchased by the family garage who had cared for it since new. Having supplied three amazing classic cars to the garage owner, Mr Dennis Chapman, KGF Classic Cars were contacted by him and we were delighted to acquire the car to find the next appreciative owner. Look no further for a truly cherished modern classic Polo.
