1993 Volkswagen Golf CL Euro-Spec

Ah, European specification. As Andrew recently mentioned in his bare-bones SL280, it’s not everyday that we see a European-specification model that arrives on these shores, but it is unusual when it’s a base model. Case in point; today’s Golf CL. Outside of a sunroof, it’s about as basic a Golf as you could get. Yet it’s this basic nature, coupled with its ultra-low mileage, great condition, and nice color combination that makes it appealing today:

Very early,clean,rust free Volkswagen Golf CL.I imported this car from the Netherlands in 2018.The car was bought out of a private collection,with a genuine 8500 kilometers.The car currently has just around 14k original kilometers on her.That is the equivalent to 8,700 original miles!!!I am a mk3 golf enthusiast,it’s all I do,I have several, including a few others I’ve imported.This car has the very rare blue on blue interior,even carpets are blue.The car is really clean,a few minor defects as to be expected of a car nearly 30 years young.Car has been upgraded to oem plus standards including kw coilovers,jetex full stainless exhaust,autotech upgraded control arms,and some hella lighting.Also included with the sale is a very rare,genuine nos vwa zender shift knob.CAR HAS A CLEAR COLORADO TITLE.Car is being relisted due to timewasters,both high bidders from last auction decided they are no longer interested.Please ONLY bid if you have money,and actually want to buy the car!It doesn’t seem that difficult,yet for some it appears it is.

I could do without the clear tail lights, but aside from that the mods are nicely executed without going over the top. It’s in lovely condition, and the dark blue paint is offset nicely by the confetti-pattern seats and blue carpets. The 1.6 was rated around 75 horsepower, so don’t expect to win an driving competitions. But if you want a clean blank slate, this is certainly a nice subject matter. Throw a 3.2 VR6 in that bay and you’d have a really understated sleeper!

  1. Look at how nice these small hatchbacks used to be. They sit low, have absolutely wonderful interior space, and are about as simple as a car can be. That’s a lot more than the new golf can say. Monster truck in comparison. Thanks for posting this–very fun to see.

  2. Although they certainly made them this way, it feels so weird to see a carburetor in such a “modern” VW chassis.

  3. So so cool, and Im a MK2 guy thru and thru. Just imagine buying this “brand new” 27 yo Golf , now that would be cool. Not sure if I would VR6 swap it because those are easy to find here in the US. Im from CO, and I bet it is an Old school car fan like me that imported it, Nice.
