That would be a Jetronic GTi, judging from the interior trim and the orange distributor cap, suggesting it's pre-facelift. I which case would the apparent lack (judging from the pic) of the air flow meter housing be the reason it turns over but won't start?

Well spotted Phil on the missing or at least disconnected airflow meter.

The listing also claims 100,000 fewer miles than the photo evidence shows.

Looks to be an early P1 8V judging by the interior, probably an E or F reg, it looks tidy and unmolested with dealer sticker in the rear window, some ones pinched the radio aswell as the air flow meter!

Same colour as DUG the 16v isn't it?

As a point of interest, on "E" reg BX Gti's the radio was not a standard fit, it was an optional extra. I know this because I bought a new one from the main dealer. I then chose to fit a good Panasonic logic controlled headunit matched with Panasonic coaxial speakers with angled tweeters. :-D


(I see your comment though relates to the chopped out wires and discarded console trim. ;-) )

This really has got potential, sadly too far away for me otherwise I would have been seriously tempted. It definitely wants saving.

Rear headrests, too. Does it look a bit scorched on the bulkhead behind the engine?

That's not uncommon, it's were the sound proofing degrades.

That's near me. Looks to be meteor grey, same as DUG was.

Hmmm.....I've got no space to keep it, but I might be able to revive it and move it on to a loving home. You know, because I have stacks of time.....

edit: That said, on closer inspection the paintwork appears to be shot, and the rear bumper is the wrong colour. Nothing major, but I don't have funds to start respraying cars.

More than willing to help someone out with it though, if they're interested.

Not sure if the fuel pump is missing too, but I don't know this model. There is an aperture next to the distributor where the fuel pump sits on the 1.6 though!. Also note, the plastic trim from the relays on the passenger footwell, which suggests wet fusebox.... :wink:
Nice colour, probably a reasonable car.
