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.
First registered in May 1993 the car has had a modest 4 previous owners from new. Its extensive history file is complete with its original manual, service book and road atlas dealer listings all in excellent condition and reflective of the condition of the car and the fastidious nature of its custodianship. Having clearly had no expense spared in its maintenance, the history file also comes with receipts totalling £8,500 and will be freshly serviced prior to sale.
