1988 Volkswagen Scirocco 16V

509

It’s been a solid few weeks for Volkswagens at GCFSB. We’ve featured a few very nice GTis, some R32s, and a pretty slick Euro-inspired 16V converted Scirocco. Today’s example is more stock than the car we featured yesterday and remains one of the lower mile unmolested examples we’ve seen recently. At only 62,000 miles, this car is barely broken in! The 16V Scirocco is a neat period package that was fun to drive and had reasonable practicality with the hatch and fold down seats. Take a look at this white with leatherette/cloth seats:

CORRECTION……PLEASE NOTE….THIS CAR HAS A NON FACTORY SUNROOF. IT IS NOT ORIGINAL TO THE CAR……THANKS.

The interior on this generation of Volkswagens is always the ownership care tell-tale, and surprisingly though the exterior pictures are relatively unimpressive the interior looks great. I has a set of those seats back when I owned a Mk. 2 Golf, and they were quite comfortable and offered reasonable support in the corners. The owner is upfront that the A/C is non-fuctional but it hasn’t been removed, making repair a little bit easier. No other mechanical history is included, unfortunately. I’m not a fan of the wheels, but they’re easy enough to replace – I found a nice set of BBSs that while black would look pretty slick on this package – click the picture to bring you to the auction:

The only real downside I see with this particular example is the non-factory sunroof. I’d be pretty weary that the hole had been cut and properly sealed, and make sure there are no leaks or rust hiding. That said, taller folks would probably appreciate the additional headroom versus the factory slider unit. Otherwise, I’d guess the reserve is set around the $4,000 – $5,000 mark, and at that price point this seems like a pretty reasonable driver.
