The front and rear chrome bumpers with overriders fit well and finish is exquisite. All trim pieces are present and have a great finish. The headlights, front turn signals, and taillights are in very good condition with no hazing or cracks.
Inside, this Volkswagen features Burgundy vinyl with light grey piping sport seats that look great. The rear seat has the same excellent upholstery. The Burgundy and grey door panels, carpet and dashboard are a continuation of the striking interior of this coupe and look fantastic. The original gauges have their correct location and appearance, however, the windshield wipers and fuel gauge are inoperable. The light grey headliner compliments the interior and is in good condition. The removable face JVC head-unit and original steering wheel are in very good condition and complete the interior.
