1984 Volkswagen Golf

UP FOR SALE IS THE NEWEST 1984 GTI YOU WILL FINDIN 1984 VW HAD A CONTEST TO WIN A NEW GTI, THIS CAR WAS WON AT GRANT RD VW IN TUCSON AZ IN JULY 1984. THE WINNER OF THE CAR OWNED UNTIL HIS PASSING A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO. I OWN A VW SERVICE CENTER IN TUCSON AND I WAS CONTACTED BY THE PEOPLE HANDLING THE ESTATE TO SEE IF I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SOME OLD VW RABBIT. I IMMEDIATLY WENT TO SEE WHAT IT WAS AND WHAT KIND OF CONDITION IT WAS IN NOT EXPECTING MUCH. I PULLED UP TO THE HOUSE AND SPOTTED IT. A 1984 VW GTI COMPLETLY ORIGINAL. I COULDNT BELIVE HOW STRAIGHT IT WAS. IT WAS COMPLETLY UNMOLESTED AND EVEN THE FRONT SPOILER WAS ORIGINAL AND HAD NEVER BEEN BROKEN. THE SPARE TIRE IS THE ORIGINAL AND NEVER USED, JACK AND TOOLS STILL FASTENED WITH THE ORIGINAL RUBBER STRAPS TO SPARE TIRE WHEEL. THE PAINT HAD SUFFERED FROM THE DESERT SUN BUT THE BODY WAS UNBELIVABLY STRAIGHT.THIS CAR WAS THE PERFECT CANDIDATE FOR COMPLETE RESTORATION. SO I DID IT. I COMPLETLY DISSASSEMBLED THIS CAR AND STARTED FROM THE GROUND UP. A SIDE NOTE IS THAT WHEN I REMOVED THE PASSENGER FRONT SEAT I FOUND A LAMINATED ARTICLE FROM THE TUCSON CITIZEN DATED 7/18/1984 ABOUT THE WINNING OF THIS CAR. AFTER STRIPPING THIS CAR, REMOVING WINDOWS AND CARPET ETC, THERE WAS ABSOLUTLY NO RUST THANKS TO THE AZ DESERT. I SENT CAR TO VANDERPOOLS AUTO BODY AND WAYNE VANDERPOOL LAID DOWN A BLACK PIANT JOB THAT IS SPECTACULAR. WHEN I GOT THE CAR THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD HAD BEEN REMOVED DUE TO BROKEN EXHAUST STUDS IN CYLINDER HEAD. I REMOVED ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION FROM VEHICLE. CLEANED AND POLISHED ENGINE BAY WHILE ENGINE REMOVED.
