1979 Volkswagen Scirocco

00505_34Ifls2OXaC_600x450

The original Giugiaro Scirocco is a thing of beauty to this day, with sharp lines that come together distinctively. It’s a shame that most Mk1 Sciroccos are dead or beat within an inch of their life, but today’s is a refreshingly clean and cared-for example. Taken just on looks and the cleanliness of the engine bay, it’s a heck of car. Unfortunately, while the description attempts to be detailed with a photo of (I think?) maintenance and improvements, the seller is not familiar with resolution requirements, leaving quite a few questions to be answered before the steep asking price is paid.

Not the way I’d want to drop almost $10k on a car on Craigslist, especially when the mean price of Sciroccos is less than half that. The Phaeton hiding in the garage gives a hint that the owner might really be into VWs, but that’s giving as much the benefit of the doubt as guessing that the “pictured” sheet says that every single part is perfect and brand new. If you’re in the PNW and love Mk1s, give the guy a call and check it out. It certainly looks the part.

  1. Look at the garage again Nate: that’s a MkV Jetta, not a Phaeton.

    Way too much unknown to really talk about this car, plus for me it’s on the other side of the country. However, after the “selling this for my neighbor” and the “don’t waist my time” comments, I wouldn’t expend any effort to go look at it based simply on the perceived attitude of the seller.

  2. agree Kevin, unless the Phaeton has been de-chromed it’s most likely a jetta.. An eyepoppin price for what looks like a very clean mrk 1.5.. I would predict should this guy get his asking we’ll see an uptick in Rocco ads on GCFSB!

  3. $10k appraisal from Hagerty?
    Let them buy it.
    It’s a $5k car..
