EXTERIOR
An icon of its time, the small and simple design of the Mk1 Golf is one of the most recognisable shapes in the automotive world. Beautifully specified in a combination of Helios Blue Metallic with matching blue vinyl soft-top this Mk1 Cabriolet looks superb, with the added benefit of Clipper exclusive smooth body-coloured bumpers, wheel-arch extensions, and side skirts which perfectly accentuate the cars boxy lines. Details are what really set this Golf apart, with the correct original 2-tone alloys, Karmann badges and even the original Scott’s of Sloane Square branded number plates present with the car.

Having spent most of its recent life in dry storage condition of the car is excellent, with just a handful of carefully touched in stone chips in an otherwise deep and glossy finish.

INTERIOR
Stepping into the interior of the Golf is an almost time warp experience; with its original chequered fabric upholstery, Blaupunkt radio/cassette player and Scotts of Sloane Square dealership tax disc holder all present to complete the 80’s throwback feel. Perfectly sat in the drivers eyeline is the predictably period square instrument cluster, which displays an almost unbelievable 32,431 miles, and the original vinyl steering wheel which shows with almost no discernible signs of wear.

Highly specified from new this example also benefits from an electric soft-top which functions seamlessly upon test.

Overall condition of the interior is impeccable, commensurate with the cars low mileage, showing with no major marks, cracks or stains to detract from the fantastic presentation of the Clipper.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Featuring the same base 1,781cc engine as the Mk1 GTI, VW fitted the Clipper with a simpler carburettor set up to produce spritely 90 bhp and a top speed of 102 mph. Paired to a 3-Speed automatic gearbox this Clipper leans towards a more laid back style of driving, ideal for some roof down summertime cruising.

Showing 10 stamps in the original service book, including 7 with the supplying main dealer the mechanicals of the Golf are in fine fettle.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Sitting in perfect condition the 14″ diamond cut alloys, with glass black accents, complete the sporty aesthetic of the Clipper. Tyres are matching on Avons at the front and a brand new set of Bridgestones at the rear.

Brakes are a set of discs at the front and drums at the rear, both of which easily bring the featherweight cabriolet to a halt.

HISTORY FILE
Registered by Scotts of Sloane Square on 01/08/1989 this beautifully specified Mk1 Golf Clipper has enjoyed a lavished life, showing 10 stamps in the original service book, 7 of which were carried out by the supplying dealer. MOT history verifies the incredibly low mileage at the same points as the service book, with a log certificates dating back to 1992 when the car had covered just 4,048 miles.

Since purchasing the car in 2018 the current owner has kept the car in dry storage, covering less than 1k miles in the last 3 years and just over 10k miles since 2010.

Present with the car is the complete original book pack with stamped service book and dealership material, V5 and a complete set of keys.
