MK1 Volkswagen Golf Clipper Convertible 1989 - 100% MINT CONDITION (1989)




MK1 Volkswagen Golf Clipper Convertible 1989 - G547 DVP
121,290 miles, the car has travelled 1,240 miles in the past 5 years.
I have decided to sell my cherished MK1 Golf. There is a genuine reason for sale which I will share with any genuine / interested buyer.
The car is 100% mint condition and this is not in any way an over exaggeration as you will see from the photographs and video’s that I can provide.
It was totally stripped back to the metal and repainted 6 years ago and the car has been fully restored whilst retaining every originality including the paint colour. The interior is original and virtually untouched, it has had a new hood and liner, fuel tank and filler pipe, drive shaft and steering neck gaiters, windscreen (all other windows are original and marked with the registration plate), thermostat and rear shock absorbers.
The engine is sweet, smooth and oil leak free and it ticks over, once warm as happy as any new VW.
New front brakes and callipers were fitted in 2019 and just this week the entire rear brakes have been replaced. It’s been fully serviced and MOT’d.
There is a stainless steel exhaust, which sounds beautiful and each BBS wheel is like new including the tyres.
I have fitted a modern Pioneer stereo which sounds really nice. I’ve upgraded the speakers with Alpine one’s and these fit perfectly where the original factory ones were. I have the original gear knob and window winders if you prefer to fit these. I quite like the retro pool ball gear knob and skateboard winders, but I appreciate that is a personal opinion.
I am willing to liaise with any serious potential buyer and accommodate them such as collecting you from the train station etc…(social distancing to be considered) however I do not appreciate time wasters so please show respect. This is an amazing car in perfect condition and the price advertised is the price, I am not open to negotiation.
I have a large number of photographs and several video’s of the car which I can share with you - please contact me and I will create a private Dropbox folder for you to view them.
