This stunning Golf Clipper Convertible has been cherished from new by just one keeper and the exterior presents itself accordingly with such a low mileage and loved example. Finished in original factory Alpine White (code P1), the paintwork maintains a bright uniform shine. Only a tiny singular paint blemish each on the nearside rear panel and nearside front arch extension are visible to only the most determined of inspectors. The convertible hood is finished in contrasting black (code V1) remains damage, rip and crease free. It effortlessly operates electrically and folds away neatly under the rear tonneau. Alongside the dealer number plates, rear screen sticker and tax disc holder, even the original option code sticker and factory inspection stamp remain in the boot area! The bumpers, rubber side mouldings and all other body trim sections are excellent and scuff free and all factory ‘Clipper’ decals are exactly as Volkswagen intended. Unmolested and beautifully preserved, one for the true enthusiast.
The interior of this Golf is in remarkable order with the sports seats finished in the Dove Grey (code CT) along with the matching unmarked cloth covered door and side panels. The seats are in beautiful wear free condition with only very mild discoloration to the light grey seat bolster on the driver’s side. The white headlining is fully intact and virtually mark free, and the carpets are still protected by the original VW over-mats. The original fascia and trim sections are perfect and all the controls work as they should, although the digital clock display has partially failed. The fully functional factory original digital stereo remains fitted. Representing everything that a low owner and low mileage pride and joy should. Wonderful.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The time proven and uncomplicated four cylinder 1.8 engine producing 90bhp is smooth and performs strongly giving excellent and responsive performance. A top speed of 99mph and 0-60 in 13.2 seconds are achieved with a guaranteed smile on the driver’s face! The automatic transmission changes seamlessly and is willing to engage kick-down quickly. A hugely enjoyable car to drive.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
This Golf Clipper Convertible is fitted with the original steel wheels and two piece wheel covers. They are all shod with quality branded 175/70 R13 tyres with excellent tread remaining and the original space saver spare wheel is unused with tyre nobbles still intact! The diagonally split braking system incorporating front discs and self-adjusting rear drums delivers prompt and assured stopping power.
This beautiful Golf Clipper was first registered on 27th September 1990 by Volkswagen main agents Smithfield Garage in Birmingham. The first and only keeper from new Mr Paul Ketteley has covered a mere 43,105 miles in his 24 years of ownership! The original A5 leather wallet houses a stamped service booklet and all dealer handbooks and guides, as well as even the salesman’s business card. The comprehensive history file further documents a cam-belt change at 38,606 miles and houses many previous invoices and MOT certificates to fully support the incredible low mileage. An original sales brochure completes the history file for this very special car.
