The Red Baron needs a new home! Great opportunity to own an early model Golf GTi. Definitely an appreciating asset offering a massive amount of fun for the new owner. Can you afford not to take up the chance for so many "smiles per hour?"

ChasingCarUK have the pleasure of offering am early Mk1 Golf GTi Convertible. First registered in August 1986, it is 33 years old with 8 owners and has a very comprehensive history over the last 15 years. I think the pictures speak for themselves. With regret there is no history prior to 2005 when the vehicle went through a nut and bolt rebuild including a full respray, new interior, new roof and a mechanical overhaul. According to the paperwork available, we have a change of owner in 2013 and then again in 2016. MOT history shows the vehicle has been active on the road since 2005 with 157000 miles and shows all the passes and failures up to the current day at 178000 miles. The car is in OUTSTANDING condition and I would challenge anyone to look at the car and suggest it has covered more than 78000 miles - never mind 178000! In the words of the previous owner "he has wanted for nothing, CAM belt, water pump, spark plugs, as well as oil changes every year" I must admit I asked why it was a "he" - because of his kids nicknaming the vehicle "The Red Baron!" He has been a much loved member of the family delivering fun days out with the roof down and taking them on weekend trips in the summer, 100% reliable, never missed a beat and full of smiles! It is time to find The Red Baron a new home, could this be you? Any questions please do get in touch.

ChasingCarsUK are happy to take vehicles in part exchange, and will also consider helping people sell there cars too. Not only will we sell, be we have the facilities and contacts to be able to offer restoration services too. An questions please do get in touch, here to help if I can!!
