The body of the Golf Cabriolet did not change through the entire production run except for a larger fuel tank. The space saver wheel was fitted from the outset in 1978, when pre-production models were built, unlike the saloon which adopted this in 1984. In an attempt by Volkswagen to keep the car’s styling current, Cabriolets from 1988 on were fitted with a “Clipper” kit out of the factory, featuring smooth body-coloured bumpers, wheel-arch extensions, and side skirts.
This beautiful two owner example has travelled a mere 77,800km from new and offered with supplementary maintenance history and service book. Fitted with the extra factory options of a heated rear window, power steering and MP3 audio system, this excellent example is still fitted with its original interior, soft-top and paint.
