MK1 GTI

I saw a nice Mk1 for sale in a classic car auction about 6 weeks ago. It has one previous owner with only 85k on the clock. It had been resprayed and it looked really nice so I decided I would visit the auction to pay a visit. To my disapointment, it was not what I expected. The floor was wet and the carpet had been cut out and replaced with car mats. The sunroof showed signs of wet too. On top of the strut top mounts at the corner, this had been filled with car filler. Not only that, there was hardly any service history or receipts so I decided it was not for me. It sold at auction over 8k (it was either 8200 or 8600 - i cant remember which)

Anyway, I was just browsing on the net for a Mk1 a couple of days ago, I noticed the same car for sale with that distinctive sunroof and to my surprise, this vehicle is for sale for nearly 15k !!

Let me tell you this vehicle is NOT worth 15k so dont be fooled by its description.

Yes there is another thread. I saw it at King Lynn auction before Christmas when it didn’t sell.

It looked nice from a distance but the inner wings were a mess! Looked full of filler

Even if it was better than mint condition, that’s never a 15k car with that sunroof..

You can see how poor the repairs on the inner wings are in the pictures, they have just painted over the rust!  :lol:
