This rare Golf Gti 1800 Plus, the special Pirelli series and chassis E, was registered in France on Sep-tember 13, 1983 and has a clear trace of ownership. Its current owner, in love with the model, bought it in 2016 to restore it entirely, respecting the original design. Thus, the restoration took around 18 months, with the body stripped bare, and every component looked at. Except for the painting, all else was executed by Atelier VW.R, a well respected Golf specialist in Albi, for an amount exceeding € 22,500, and close to € 30,000 in totalwith the parts. A comprehensive interior and exterior paint job in "mars red" color was carried out, the car was then reassembled and fitted with new upholstery and four new Pirelli tires. The level of restoration is impressive and the stages have been the subject of a report of over 500 photos, which we suggest you have a look at, to bet-ter understand the extent of the work carried out. The dyno demonstrated the good condition of the engine and all the instruments are in working condition including the econometer. Restored as per its original livery, never met with an accident, and fitted with an engine and a gearbox of the right type and the right period, our GTI chassis E, the last and the most successful of the series 1 Golf - this is a unique opportunity to enjoy the most legendary GTIs of the 80s.
