1981 Volkswagen Scirocco1981 Scirocco time capsule in outstanding condition. Fully documented car from new with original paint and has been well kept throughout its life. I have owned this car for 7 years after a long search. This car has spent most of its life in southern California until having it shipped here to Michigan where it has resided in its climate controlled garage. It has been driven about 1000 miles since with only weekend exercise. It has been trouble free and well cared for its entire life. There is no suggestion of any structural damage or paintwork all of which is in amazing condition. The car has been reliable and has never had any significant mechanical issues. Starts easily. Runs and drives well.
Previous owner added Bilstein/H&R suspension with additional upper and lower front supports. H4 headlights with relays provide improved dependable lighting. Carpet has been replaced with Newton carpet from the UK which is of top quality. Rare European bumpers were upgraded years ago. Otherwise the car remains stock. Dealer installed air conditioning would benefit from servicing as it is loosing it's cooling capacity. Recent fluid changes have been performed. Car recently received new Michillen tires and a new battery.
The paint on the car is original and amazing condition with nice luster (9/10). The body is rust free. The body does show a number of dings with intact paint along the normal longitudinal body creases on the side of the car and some shallow dents/depressions on the hood and roof which are not appreciated on pictures but can be seen with the right lighting (7-8/10 condition). A few scratches and paint chips that have been touched up are present but only under close scrutiny. Glass is original (9/10) condition. Interior demonstrates some dash cracks which I tried to demonstrate on pictures. Small worn patch on passenger's seat otherwise in excellent condition. Original radio and no modifications to the interior have been made such as to the dash, door cards, or rear deck.Mechanically the only issues have been the horn works intermittently and the reverse lights have not worked since I've owned the car. Otherwise all electricals are in working condition.
All service receipts from new, manuals, window sticker, keys, and original California plates included in sale.
