are pleased to be offering for sale on behalf of one of our customers, their
immaculate, restored 1983 MK1 Golf GTI Campaign model, in Helios Blue.
car has in recent years been the subject of a full, nut and bolt restoration,
with bare shell re-spray and it has been completed to a very high standard.
If you
are looking for one of the best MK1 Golf GTIs currently for sale, with the
added bonus of it being a rare, Helios Blue Campaign model, then look no
The details of this car are as
The car was registered on 21st
October 1983 and whilst it has had a total of ten owners, having received a
full nut and bolt restoration, the car is in about as good a condition as you
could wish to find.
The current owner acquired the
vehicle on 23rd November 2013. He is a known member of the MK1 Golf
Owners Club and has cherished the vehicle in his ownership, spending a fair
amount of money on a few finishing touches for the car.
He had purchased the Golf from
the owner that conducted a full restoration on the car and had owned the car
for over 9 years. The restoration included a bare shell re-spray, full engine
rebuild and all parts being replaced with new or restored as required. Even the
underside of the car is highly detailed and like new.
The current owner is now simply
not finding the time to enjoy this lovely MK1 Golf and cannot bear any longer to
see it sat idle. Therefore, he wishes to pass it on to someone who has the time
to enjoy it and continue to care for it as it deserves.
Needless to say, there is a
stack of paperwork with the car including restoration expenses, most MOTs since
1990 and plenty of other receipts substantiating the thousands that have been
spent on this car.
This MK1 Golf GTI is currently
driving on a private plate (not pictured) of GLF 188V – spaced to GLF 18 8V –
which is very fitting for the 1.8 litre, 8 valve Golf! This plate can be
purchased at £895 or the car will revert to its original plate.
The car is priced at £13,995
without the private plate, which we feel is a very reasonable price given how
much money has been spent on getting it to its current, high standard.
This Golf has 143,600 miles on
the clock, is HPI clear (certificate available) and is now MOT’d until 14th
June 2016. The car will be sold as a private sale directly with the current
owner but please liaise with us for further information and to organise a
Having had a
full, bare shell restoration there is not too much to say on the bodywork other
than it is in exceptional condition. There is no rust on the car, the panels
are all original and the Helios Blue paintwork has been finished to a high
All of the
original details are maintained and correct, such as the silver side stripes,
front spoiler, A-pillar trims and original spot lamps.
The underside of
the car received as much attention as the topside and needless to say, is
clean, fresh and looking like new.
The current owner
recently paid for the car to be fully Waxoyled in all cavities to preserve the
as-new condition.
All mechanicals of the car were
restored or replaced so the car runs like a new MK1 Golf. The original Campaign
model Pirelli alloy wheels and centre caps are present and were also
refurbished at high cost.
All tyres are matching, Pirelli
P6000s with plenty of tread left and the spare wheel is also a Pirelli alloy
with centre cap.
All running gear is standard
from the suspension through to the exhaust. The engine won 2nd place
at the 2012 MK1 Golf Owners Club annual meet Show ‘n’ Shine Best Engine
category and the car itself won the Club’s 2014 Car of the Year award.
The interior is in fantastic,
original condition and still maintains the Campaign model features, such as the
correct, leather-bound steering wheel. The seats are the original GTI stripe
version without any bolster wear.
This MK1 Campaign edition has
its original Blaupunkt radio cassette still fitted and all other original
features – it also has three VDO gauges in the centre console. Sadly, the MFA/Clock
display does not work correctly, but this is the only small negative on an
otherwise exceptional car.
This Golf also has an
immobiliser fitted and a spare set of keys.
MK1 Golfs of this standard do
not come up for sale too often and with the added bonus of this one being the
rare, Campaign edition in Helios Blue, it really is an opportunity not to be
We know the car and owner very
well and can vouch for the car’s integrity and quality. If you are looking to
buy one of the best MK1 Golf GTIs out there, then look no further.
Any inspection is welcome and
