Details Specification Condition Report
  • The format of the programme dictates that two restorers bid to restore the car for its existing owner
  • When it's finished, the car is auctioned with the proceeds being split on a percentage basis so the restorer will be motivated to produce the best possible result
  • This Mk1 Golf GTI is now finished and is in beautiful condition throughout
  • It's had a complete professional glass-out repaint in original Mars Red
  • Fitted with a fully rebuilt 1.8 engine from the 1982 facelift (Srs 2) 
  • The 1781cc engine is slightly more powerful but offers considerably more torque
  • New Bilstein suspension. Wheels refurbed with new Pirelli P4s
  • Re-upholstered interior using the correct factory (S2) red-stripe fabric
  • Hopefully (Covid permitting) the sale will be recorded for Channel 4 and the new owner will have the pleasure of being able to see his shiny red GTI on television at a later date
