    Mk1 Golf project/restoration

    Hi all,

    I really really don't want to do this but I'm putting my MK1 Golf up for sale.
    It's been off the road for 3 years now and I'm never going to get the time/money to sort it out. I hope somebody else can bring it back to how it used to be.

    The car is an '83 (Y) MK1 1.8 8v GTi
    Green tint glass
    sliding steel sunroof
    I have owned the car for 7 years and I have 2 folders full of history going back as far as 1984
    It's basically a rolling shell in need of restoration and it been almost totally stripped, barring the headliner and glass. All of the wiring is still there.

    What I know needs doing:
    Spare Wheel well (needs welding. Repair panel cut from another car supplied)
    Inner O/S drivers side arch/tub needs replacing
    N/S sill and outer rear arch need replacing (replacement sill supplied)
    Hole in the bulkhead where the clutch cable pulled through
    drivers side wing

    Other than that it's pretty solid. The front inner wings are good as are the window frames, sunroof, floor...

    It will be supplied with:
    Panels mentioned above,
    Doors (bottom of the drivers door would need repairing. Passenger door is really good),
    Replacement N/S wing (Good secondhand one from a cabrio)
    Replacement Tailgate (Good secondhand one)
    Bumpers, Grill, dash and whatever else I can find knocking around
    Good bonnet

    Pics as it is (no tailgate on it now)

    Here's what it could (did) look like
    The plan was to drop a 16V engine in here but I do still have the original which is available with the car if required?


    I'll be selling all the other stuff I've gathered separately but if there's interest, and the price is right, it could come with the car.

    Wish I knew what I was doing as I'd love a MK1 as a project. I have "project" MR2 that's been sitting on the drive for 2 years now haha

    Sorry Mark, I have no wheels for sale separately

    I might actually be keeping the car now. It all depends on what happens in the next couple of weeks...
