1986 Volkswagen Scirocco 16V

It’s been about a month since we last wrote up a Scirocco 16V, a neat economy hatchback with plenty of 1980s character and styling. The 16V was and still is a perennial favorite of the VW crowd, who generally modify them to make them better performers and turners. Few seem to remain in pristine, original shape anymore – and this isn’t one of them, but it is a first-year model with some tasteful modifications that might be a good canvas for the VW loyal:

Im pricing aggressively @ $3,500

It’s somewhat amazing that someone would trade this car in rather than sell it; I can’t imagine the trade-in value was anywhere close to what the market is supporting for these cars today. What’s even more miraculous was that the dealer seems to have kept the records for the car, though the listing doesn’t detail what was done. This car is far from perfect, but not noted in the sale are some neat and desirable items such as the much smaller and more attractive Euro-market bumpers. Overall paint looks quite good and in true Scirocco II style the listing photos show the interior full of junk and dirty; this seems to be a requisite when selling a later Scirocco. In that trash, though, is the original wheel. To me it doesn’t seem that the laundry list is too long; pricing is on the lower side of some of the 16Vs we’ve seen lately and the TMU and needs demand it. I think it’s still a touch high, but if black is your thing and you’re in the hunt for a 16V this doesn’t look like a bad example overall.

    There’s an old adage that one should never look at a used car in the rain. Snow has to be worse…

    The visible corrosion under the hood makes me curious and a bit fearful of what might be exposed if this car were put on a lift for an inspection.

    Proceed with extreme caution…
