Very hard to find original Red/Black VW GTI w/sunset interior, Original paint has a nice shine, the motor pulls VERY STRONG with the engine recently getting gone through including TIMING BELT, radiator, plugs/wires,Brakes, Tires, New axle fluids and quite a bit more to make this car very road worthy. Odometer shows 120k but I have no way to verify other than the condition of the car, which is as nice as your going to see and shows little wear for being 35 years old .Car has new tires, brakes, belts and more...EVERYTHING WAS DONE LESS THAN 500 miles AGO.

    • Paint:
    Orig paint looks nice and holds a very nice shine, car looks very tidy going down the road. (see condition description above for more details)
    • Engine/DriveTrain:
    Car runs and drives very nice with new tires and brakes,steers well and pulls strong in all gears and uphill, stops well and handles great, the clutch is very solid and the car shifts great with new shift bushings. I had a well know southern califonria VW ONLY mechanic go through this car to make it a great driver, All and all I really believe the next owner it going to like the power this little car makes with the all the recent work done.(see condition description above for more details)
    • Interior: VERY NICE!!!!
    The interior in my opinion is really nice for an 85 GTI, the Original 1985 seats are in great shape (see pics), The matching door panels are also in great shape, the head liner has been replaced at some point but looks good, the dash is crack free, it come with a nice CD player that blends into the dash well and also has a remote and IPOD connect/charger hidden in the glove box, original VW carpet is in nice shape. the steering wheel still retains some original grain and has the GTI center plastic intact, like most 80 VWs the ODO has a mind of its own, but the major stuff work on the interior LIKE THE SUNROOF...yes the sunroof opens and closes. The interior might need a couple things to be perfect but all and all I think its as nice as I have seen in the last 20 years.
    See pics for condition and Im sure you will be impressed. Im happy to answer any questions on the car so feel free to email me via Ebay. I believe I covered most of it above but Im sure there are a few little thing here and there I may have forgot SO PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT HAVE! CA buyer responsible for any DMV costs while out of state buyers will have their own state to deal with so please check your local laws prior to bidding and ask all questions. all older cars need a little work from time to time and Im sure this one is no different, that being said I really think the next owner is going to enjoy this old VW. Cars like this are getting near impossible to find in nice shape.
    Selling this one out of my personal collection. I love this car because it drives so strong and handle so well for an original 85. Hard to let this one go but we are building a guest house so I will no longer have a garage spot for it. Someone is going to get a VERY NICE ORIGINAL GTI...good luck
    (keep an eye out as I may be selling a few more original 80's VW /AUDI cars in the near future).
    I took this out for a drive today on 9/5/19 and had a great time:
