The VW Golf Cabriolet was sold from 1980 to 1993, and was built at Karmann. It had a reinforced body, transverse roll bar, and a high level of trim. The vinyl or cloth tops were heavily insulated and manually, or beginning in 1991, electrically, operated, with a heated glass rear window. The body of the Cabriolet did not change through the entire production run except for a larger fuel tank. In an attempt by Volkswagen to keep the car's styling current, all Cabriolets from 1988 on were fitted with a "Clipper" kit featuring smooth body-coloured bumpers, wheelarch extensions, and side skirts.
This beautifully presented VW Golf Gti Sportline Convertible has been owned by the vendor since February 2011. It has formed part of a collection and has been used sparingly, never taken out in the rain, and meticulously maintained and stored. The vehicle has only covered 3,000 miles in his ownership, and 82,475 miles since new in 1993. The car is in original factory specification with a no accident history. It has complete Service History, lots of MoT certificates, no advisories on the current MoT, and supporting invoices covering his ownership.
This vehicle presents immaculately and turns heads and invites positive comments every time it is taken out. The vendor says it’s great to drive on a run and feels and looks more like its 3 years old , such is its condition.
