Greater Manchester, United Kingdom


Volkswagen Golf CLIPPER

BARN FIND. All pictures taken on 17th May. The car has been sat in this garage since its Mot expired in December 2017, not moved since. Jump leads and a gallon of fresh fuel and it started and ran. No brakes stuck on, no tyres needed pumping up. Car has now been moved to a compound at OL161TS where it is awaiting collection by its new owner. I drove it 3 miles to the compound where most of everything seems to work, brakes stopped it etc. Nothing has been done to it since taking it out of the garage barring a quick wash. The car will need some degree of recomishining before putting back on the road, all easy diy jobs, Id be starting with an oil and filter, accelerator cable, clutch cable, belts and HT leads then see where you need to go from there. Everything is available and cheap for Golfs. Starts and drives, but is a project car and has no mot so needs to be transported away. Engine sounds sweet, no visible rust on the bodywork. Lets have a look at what its got, Remus exhaust, Khan alloys, Mountfield steering wheel which is about the size of a shirt button, original steering wheel is in the boot, replacement duck cloth roof at some time in its life, no back window fitted but the frame is there, manual choke with carburettor model, not GTI. Loads of bits in the boot, driver side missing moulding is on the parcel shelf. Needs a battery, Buffing and just generally messing with. Id be inclined to look at brakes, flexys etc, but thatd be up to you. Both front door cards are missing but may be obtainable, same with another set of alloys it had. V5 present, Asda carrier bag full of paper work, book packs, stamped service book, autotrader ad from 2003. Some testament to be sat in a garage for nearly 3 years then can be started and driven. Advertised for the current owner who has had it for 4 years, no involvement with the sale other than advertising it for him. Viewing by appointment only (as is everything at the moment!). Fast appreciating asset, with few remaining
