1977 Volkswagen SciroccoGoldie is a 1977 Scirocco, she was the poster car for Fifteen 52 when the came out with the "snowflake" re-makes. I bought the car from Brad and Matt about 5 months ago with the intention of making a fun weekend car (she is my second 1977 Rocco), but I'm buying a house so I need a down payment. They put on the ST coilovers and replaced most of the suspension bushings. She is a good handling car and it can go LOW (earlier pics included), but I have it set at a reasonable height currently. She was re-painted at some point in semi-gloss platinum gold (she was originally gold). The interior is very nice with some fading on the carpet, the rough driver's seat and some cracks on the dash. The door panels and sides are really nice. A lot of the rare bits are real nice, the grill, headlights, tail lights, side lights and inner tail light covers. The bumpers are clean and 3 outa 4 of the corners are perfect. She has all 5 alloy wheels with fresh Kumho tires. All the seals are above average, with the windows up she is pretty quite. And the best part about this girl, she has always been a California car, NO RUST, all the panels are straight, no rust underneath, beautiful. Only problem with any of the metal is some spots on the rocker from poor jacking.
I got her 4 months ago and I have driven her about 250 miles. I have a few buddies who have owned about 20 MK1 VWs, they helped me wake the car up. This is my 4th VW, I'm surrounded by them as the pictures will show. The list of what has been replaced is also below. She drives very well, shifts gears smoothly and doesn't make any bad noises. Look at the pictures carefully to see how well preserved she is. Body panels are great except for the lack of clear coat . All of the glass is original except the windshield, all of the window rubber is great. I have found a few minor problems and I bet she has a few I didn't find. The warm idle is finicky, she stalls sometimes. The fuel gauge stay at a 1/4 full, the seats rock a bit, the dome light doesn't work nor does the lighter. The motor has a few oil weeps but doesn't spot the floor.
You could use this as a great start for a restoration or drive her like she is. This car will never be worth less than it is today, what do you think this girl was worth 5 years ago... I bet she doubles in the next 5 years.
The car is tagged and titled in California, passed SMOG, on non-op status. Tags good for 11 months.
