1997 Convertible VW Golf for sale, £500.00 o.n.o.

Classic Karmann-styled convertible VW Golf Mk.3.5 petrol, R reg. 1997, 1784 cc, 5 speed manual gear box, colour : Racing Green, one previous owner other than present owner who has been driving it for 17 years. The car has 142,000 mls on the clock, and I’d say she is good for the same again.

Good bits :

In 2018 the car had full £1400 worth of underbody restoration at coachbuilder, so it comes complete with all new sills, four new wings, and complete underbody replaced and moisture re-sealed.

This future "˜classic’ car runs well, drives well, comes with MOT to Feb 2020, starts first time every time, has alloys, fob-operated security system, 10 disc cd auto-changer, anti-theft wheel bolts, electric windows, electrically heated rear window, power assisted steering, remote central locking, steel space-saver spare wheel, cam belt, water pump, power steering pipes all recently replaced.

These cars are increasing in price the older they get, especially after recent restoration works at coachbuilder and is ideal for the enthusiast.

Not great bits :

Some dents and spots as befits car of this vintage, rear light has crack, manual convertible roof opening, single speed wipers, other minor advisory items but engine and gearbox good, still drives well and car is sold as seen.

Reason for selling : I have bought a newer VW Golf Cabriolet.
