The Jetta GLI has always been a object of desire for me. While the GLI really gained fame with the Mk2 generation, it was a final-year offering on the excellent first-gen sedan, bringing most of the GTI goodies to the 3-box setup. This red example has been with the same owner for the last 15 years and is looking pretty darn good on BBS 3-piece rims with what look to be like-new Euro bumpers and front lip. The interior also looks outstanding for being over 30 years old, but a few blemishes inside and out keep this from being a perfect package. A small rust spot, mismatched tires, and paint issues on the roof are all fixable but indicate the projects will continue.

A little time and money could make this an exceptional Mk1. If it can break through the reserve barrier, this survivor could make an 80s VW fan very happy. Somewhere between $3-4k seems fair, which is roughly half what a comparable Mk1 GTI would demand. GLI lovers, rejoice!
