MK1 Golf LS Information Required

Hi all dont know if this is in the right section but i'll post it here anyway (please move if in wrong place). I'm capable of gettin my hands on a Mk1 Golf LS. I havent seen it yet as i'v only got a phone call of a old friend that he may know some one selling one. Its registered in 1978, so can some one briefly outline what the LS model came in? for instance 2/4 door and engine size. Did they come with any chrome around windows or chrome bumpers?

 :dontknow:

Any help would be great.
Thanks :)

Hi Mate,

Sounds like a nice car. 8) ….pretty sure a '78 LS was fitted with JB 1457cc engine- 4 speed manual or 3 speed auto, either 2 or 4 door and I think the chrome bumpers were replaced with plastic ones in Aug '78 (about in line with start of "T" reg- '79 model year).Car should have chrome trim insert in window rubbers and chrome door handles…hope this helps!

Cheers

Mal

What Malin said, except I think the LS did not come with an auto box for 1978 model year (GLS only).

L = chrome (bumpers, window trim, grille trim, hatch and side mouldings), clock (52mm VDO for LS), uplevel carpet and seat trim, armrests, cig lighter, aluminium dash trim, odometer, instrument lighting, courtesy light on both doors, front parcel shelf, centre console, padded steering wheel, etc
S = big block engine, rev counter, 5" steels, 12mm front brake discs, larger radiator
LS = L+S
