Fully restored with great attention to detail, this example has been professionally repainted in its original colour of desirable Helios Blue metallic. The paintwork looks fantastic with a deep polished shine and uniform finish. A few light frontal stone chips are visible. The bodywork is pin straight with no corrosion, dings, scuffs or damage and the panel fit is excellent. The underside is totally structurally sound and is also restored. All trim sections, glass, lights and badges are in superb condition. The time, effort and funds invested in the restoration is clearly evident. A brilliant looking and useable example.

A beautifully clean interior also part of the overall restoration where required is trimmed in Yellow/Blue sports cloth in superb condition with no rips or tears. The seat structure is excellent with firm bolsters that have retained correct shape. The carpets are in very good order and still have the genuine Volkswagen over mats front and rear. The door cards and headlining are fully intact and unmarked. The dashboard and interior trim are superb and all switchgear and functions are fully operational including the MFA computer with perfect display. An Alpine TDA-7561R cassette receiver with 6CD autochanger is fitted.

The Golf GTi 8V engine is robust and excellent parts availability make this an easy useable modern classic. This example performs brilliantly in every respect. The engine bay is clean and mild modification is evident such as performance filters and hoses, all very easy to revert back to standard should the next owner wish. The 5-speed sports gearbox performs well in all gears.

Rare and desirable RH Aerotech 7-spoke alloys wheels are fitted and are fully refurbished with no damage aside from a kerb mark to just the front offside rim. Hankook front and Goodyear rear tyres are fitted. The braking system has been professionally uprated with quality components and braking performance is excellent, straight and steady.

Registered new on the 3rd June 1988, the supplying Volkswagen main dealer was Arthur Prince Ltd in Loughborough. The car has had four owners in total and covered 119,827 miles from new. The history file is huge and dates back to the original PDI checklist in 1988. The majority of the history file relates to the restoration that has taken place since the previous owner purchased the car in 2015. The huge file of invoices amounts to thousands of pounds in parts alone spent on the car whereby all bodywork, paint finishing, mechanical and interior work has been completed professionally and to a very high standard. Parts included to revert the car back to standard should the next owner wish consist of the standard exhaust system, braking components, rear light clusters, front indicators and side repeaters.

Not meeting the usual KGF Classic Cars stock profile in terms of mileage and condition one credentials but not detracting from the cars overall excellent attributes, we are offering this example for sale on a part exchange to clear basis. The car looks superb and performs as such and represents a fantastic useable example. All servicing is up to date and the car is requiring nothing for immediate enjoyment. There are two sets of keys. Full inspection and test drive is welcome.

HPI clear.
