1986 golf GL with a difference!

Post  adi on Mon Mar 07, 2011 3:46 pm

Right I've been thinking about this for a while and I feel I've gone as far as I can with this so I fancy another mk2 challenge!

Spec is as follows;

1986 D reg early spec 1.8 GL 4+E 5 door in Jade Green
Digifant 8v GTI engine from a 1989 donor
4+E gearbox for fuel economy (I regularly get 47mpg on a good run @ 60mph)
105k on the shell, 219k on the engine (don't be put off, it runs 100% and burns no oil, done 1k since last service)
GTI exhaust
New 239mm vented front brakes
Rear disc conversion with good pads and discs, new handbrake cables
New 16v master cylinder
Supersport -60mm shocks and springs
All GTI wiring looms, functional MFA
Electric front windows
CF wrapped window switch panel
Jetta GTI suede door cards
Early GTI 4 button steering wheel
3 door GTI seats (fronts fold down)
Laid flat rear wiper
Smoked indicators all round
15" BBS RAs with all good tyres
Early spec GTI arch trims
All original chrome strips on the windows
Good chrome strip small bumpers
All carpets were removed last week to rectify a leak, and were all thoroughly cleaned, the interior really is VERY clean
Other than the small bits mentioned below, the shell is very solid, no rotten wings, and the sills will hold fine with a widowmaker jack!
MOT till May (I know its short but it will pass 100%, I've changed everything that could fail)
Taxed till end of May

Now for the not so great bits;

Dent on front passenger wing and passenger rear door, see pics
Very small rust hole on rear valance, again see pics
Rear lights were DIY smoked, and they're looking worse for wear now
Bonnet is painted matt black, I have the original jade green one but it has bad laquer peel
Roof has some bad laquer peel also, see pics
Few scratches here and there, but it is 25 year old paint!
The roof bars are staying, they've proved VERY useful!

Pictures...

















Ideally I'd like to swap with another mk2, preferably a GTI or even a 16v (insurance permitting), I value mine at around £900, I am in no rush to get rid of this car as I know it inside out now and trust it 100%!
Car is in Lincoln and my number is 07960 501529.

I've been down to the lock up today, fitted a new rocker cover gasket and rubber camshaft seals. Also replaced the taped up fuel hose, replaced a few suspect looking vacuum hoses, and cleaned the throttle body out. Took some pics while I was there...
