1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet Wolfsburg Edition

This car sold for $6,500.

In 1989, Volkswagen launched a series of six special Wolfsburg Edition cars. Probably the most famous of these is the Jetta GLI 16V, but there were special versions of the Fox, Vanagon, Golf GL, Jetta GL, and this car – the Cabriolet. Now, the 1989 Cabriolet Wolfsburg Edition is not to be confused with the earlier Wolfsburg Editions. For 1989, the special model was based on the ‘Bestseller’ trim. They were all finished in Star Blue Metallic with a dark blue top and equipped with 14″ ‘teardrop’ alloy wheels and striped seat upholstery that matched the GLI. They weren’t cheap, but they’re a pretty color combination that you don’t see every day:

Vehicle Details

1989 VW Cabriolet. Wolfsburg edition. All original. Everything in working order. Exceptionally low mileage of 68717. Cold A/C, am/fm/cassette player (original and working), no rust, no rips or tears or stains on the upholstery, no tips or tears on the convertible top. No oil leaks. Comes with two sets of keys, original owner’s manual, spare tire, and soft cover for the convertible top. Garage kept. Recent oil change. New battery. Tires in good condition.

Clear title.

This one sure looks pretty good. If you can get by the automatic transaxle, you’ve got a fun-loving convertible that’s perfect for beach runs for under 10k. While these are far from perfect cars in pretty much any respect, they’ve got a lot of charm and are a great way to stand apart from the crowd without breaking the bank.

    just a thought…are not all VWs Wolfsburg editions, as that is where they are located…

  2. I owned two of these back in the day, a 1982 “Rabbit“ convertible and subsequently a 1990‘s version, similar to this one but not “Wolfsburg“. Despite all the jokes about Sorority Girl car, I really enjoyed both. Enough power and handling to keep it interesting, solid German feel and Ricarro seats with one of the coolest stock steering wheels ever. And the car is really open with the top down. The earlier one was the better of two: Better build quality, tighter feel, cleaner design. Mars Red, gold-tone BBS basket-weaves and a Clifford alarm.

  3. @James – even the ones made in Tennessee? 😉
