First registered on 19th March 1987, this early Mk2 Volkswagen Golf GTI 16V is presented in Diamond Silver Metallic over a striped grey cloth interior. Specification highlights include 14-inch ‘bottle top’ alloy wheels, a manual sunroof, electric windows, central locking and a leather-bound steering wheel. Under the bonnet resides a free-revving 1.8-litre 16-valve engine producing around 137bhp through a five-speed manual transmission.

This time-warp example boasts 65,261 warranted miles from new and has been cherished by its latest owner for over thirty years. The accompanying history file shows that the car spent its first five years as a daily driver before retiring to life as a Garage Queen. Remarkably, the Golf has covered less than 3,000 miles since 1992, with some annual mileage increments being as little as 7 miles (driving to and from the MOT test station). Apart from an after-market immobiliser and stainless-steel exhaust, the car appears of original specification including the Volkswagen-inscribed ‘bottle top’ alloys and Blaupunkt radio cassette head unit.

Everywhere you look on this Golf, things are clean, fresh and well-kept. Years of indoor storage have paid dividends in preserving the exterior as neither the plastic trim nor the lights show signs of fading to the degree that you would usually expect at this age. The paintwork is in excellent, rust-free condition and the body panels appear original, flush and straight. The cabin is as good as you could hope for. The headlining was replaced a few years ago, whilst the seats and carpet appear in fine order without any tears. The engine bay, boot and undercarriage are in very good condition. The engine is strong and pulls impeccably and the gear synchros are all in good order with no crunches on changes.

The Golf benefits from a recent service and cambelt change (July 2023 @ 65,189 miles) and is ready to be enjoyed. Supplied with the car are two sets of keys and a comprehensive history file dating back to the point of first registration to include the original owner handbooks and stamped service book.

Phil is a really genuine, honest, respectful and polite man to deal with. He was very flexible and made our transaction very smooth, even completing all the paperwork and kept me fully informed throughout. I would not hesitate to use the company again. Thank you Phil.

Gemma Page

From start to finish Phil was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Knowledgeable, professional and kind. I absolutely adore my new (but old!) Mini Cooper. She's a beauty! Would definitely recommend and if I'm in the market for a classic again, Phil Mires Classic Cars would be my first port of call.
