That has been for sale for some time, on FB I think. Seems very overvalued to me. Its USP is that it is a very early GTi.

Looks like it has been off the road for a long time.

Agreed with Jaba
The seats need replacing-good luck with that, I expect it's not rust free, sub £500 would be more realistic.

So far, according to the register, that is the earliest-known GTi in the UK. If one exists which is earlier, then it's been off the road for much longer.

It does seem strongly priced, but I've heard he'd accept £800. That said, the £300 difference is a drop in the ocean compared with what you'd have to spend on it to get it up to snuff.

Potentially lovely car, though.
