Seller: colin4977 (416) 100%, Location: Chelmsford, Ships to: GB, US, AU, Item: 233285786177 1993 VW Gold clipper Convertible 1800 Totally original from when the day it drove out of the VW show room in 1993. 12 months MOT (it's in the garage as I type so I can add more photos later). I've had a new exhaust fitted. I only purchased this vehicle a few months ago but due to a new baby and 5 people being in our family now we can not all fit in the car! Also I have a camper so I'll plough the money into that instead. I bought the car off a chap whom had owned it since new. He always kept it garaged and maintained the car. This is basically a one owner VW Clipper. Good points************- Totally solid car, having been garaged its whole life I cannot find a spec of rust on it. - Hood is 18 months old and in perfect condition. - 4 brand new tyres - no scratches or dents to the alloys at all. - no 90's modifications. - electric windows and power hood, all work. Also comes with hood cover, also excellent condition. - original brochure included. - some receipts over the years, the previous owner had serviced it himself over the later years. - cam belt changed 3 years ago. - low mileage, only 114500 on the clock, it's only done about 1000 miles in the past 5 years. I do still drive it around at the weekends so will go up a little. - rear seatbelts fitted (many of these didn't have them) - spare wheel included. Not so good points****************** - The interior is beige, it's pretty clean for 26 years old but a professional valet may bring it up more so. - The drivers seat has a tear in the side. - The car stereo has stopped working. I tried it with another stereo and worked fine so all the leads are there. The aerial also goes up and down when you turn the stereo on/off. - The bonnet has some of the lacquer coming off, I had intended to re spray it, if the car doesn't hit the reserve price I'll probably get it done. The car comes with a bonnet bra so I just stuck that on which hides most of it! - The speedo works but is a bit slow catching up to reality. - The drivers seat does not fold to allow passengers into the back, so I send the kids to the near side instead as that seat works. Finally the vehicle is registered a salvage, this is only because someone damaged the hood 18 months ago so the previous owner went through the insurance ands then bought the vehicle back thus replacing the hood. The car has never been involved in an accident and any inspection is welcome. I have been totally honest with this car, as you can see it has hardly driven anywhere the past 5-8 years. It failed its MOT due to needing a new exhaust but as you can see on the images hasn't failed in the past ten years. New exhaust and carburetor being fitted as I type. Now has 12 months MOT. I've always wanted one of these cars and I was really patient looking for one. I'm gutted to see it go but I'm just pleased I had one for a while. I wont accept silly offers, I've set the reserve at a reasonable price in my opinion. Worst case scenario if it doesn't sell i can still drive it around and feel awesome 🤣 Car is near chelmsford in Essex On 12-Jul-19 at 21:38:15 BST, seller added the following information: Correction, carburetor wasn't replaced, may be a consideration for the winner, still runs and drives but may be worth considering in the future. 12 months MOT On 13-Jul-19 at 10:11:17 BST, seller added the following information: Just collected the car with a fresh 12 months MOT. Had the following bits done... Exhaust front pipeExhaust front gasket X2 exhaust clampsX3 exhaust rubbersCentre exhaust pipeRear exhaust boxSteering gaiter replaced. A consideration is to get a new carb wack stat fitted. The garage quoted me £80 for the part. It isnt essential but a consideration for the winning bidder. On 16-Jul-19 at 18:01:06 BST, seller added the following information: I just wanted to clarify regarding the cam stat. Basically this part helps the cam keep the car at the correct rev line. If the engine is cold you would have rev the engine a bit to warn it up so it sits idle. Once you're there it drives and runs perfectly. I've found this takes a few minutes. I've been quoted £80 for the part by my local garage who will order it in from Volkswagon heritage. They said it would take a week or so but I already put the car on Ebay!
