We’ve featured a few clean Scirocco’s on GCFSB lately, but for some reason, I think this particular one will be hard to top. Purchased new in September 1988, this car left the showroom towards the very end of the Scirocco’s run in the US. A two-owner car, this 16V is original in many ways, right down to the paint, floormats and unmarred teardrop alloy wheels. While white is a popular color nowadays, this hue lends a decidedly eighties flavor to what was already a favorite of those times. For those who have been on the hunt for a clean, late model Scirocco, your search might be over.

At $15,000, this is decidedly heady territory for a Scirocco, but I’m having a hard time finding fault with this one. Sciroccos are not usually on my radar, but this car gives me that serious “want” feeling. Sometimes a car like this will look clean on the surface, but when you inspect further, you’ll come across things like a worn bolster here, a tweaked or scratched bumper there, or a tacky aftermarket stereo. This VW has none of this. Many Sciroccos have a warped dashboard on the passenger side around the glovebox door. This flaw is also remarkably absent. The folks who owned this car certainly did a good job in looking after it. Will someone bite at $15,000? I doubt it. But something tells me if this car was up for sale at around $10,000 to $12,000, one brave soul may have already snapped it up. Even at that price, it’s reaching for a Scirocco, but when you consider how many good ones are left like this, could this be the next big thing on the collector scene? It’s something to consider while Volkswagen toys with US Scirocco fans by withholding the current, third generation car from our market.
