1992 Volkswagen GTi VR6 swap

The Montana Green Mk.2 2.0 16V GTi has been a monster that has haunted my dreams since I first saw one. I’m not sure why it had such an impact on me, but it’s undeniable how much I love this car. Every time I see one for sale I try to figure out some way to justify not buying it and every time the argument becomes a little less convincing. Fortunately for me, today’s example isn’t “the one” that I’d get – because today’s example appears to be originally a 1.8 8V version which has had a serious motivation transplant in the form of the 2.8 VR6. Take a look:

From memory, the Corrado transplant is the easier one to do into this chassis because they’re very similar. Overall the car looks pretty good but certainly not perfect. There are a few dents, the front fenders shade don’t quite match the rest of the car, the wheels are horrible, and there is some trim missing. To me none of those would be deal breakers, because I think this car is pretty reasonably priced at $4,200. Critical to Mk.2 GTis, there is no rust and the problems present couldn’t be overcome without a little work. I’m guessing from the amount of replaced parts in the front that it suffered a frontal impact, and the Mk.2 is a fairly soft chassis so I’d check out that it was straight before pulling the trigger. It’s not the car that haunts my dreams but I think it represents a neat way to get into a hot hatch that’s pretty unique.
