The car is in relatively good condition with minimal rust and solid underneath.
It's recently had a replacement fuel tank and has been fully under-sealed.
The shocks, springs, track control arms and steering components are new, it has been lowered approx 40mm but needs the tracking done.
The exhaust system from down pipe to rear silencer is new.
The mechanical fuel pump has been removed and an electric pump fitted in it's place.
The car starts, stops and drives fine.

I have a selection of spares to go with the car including an engine with ancillaries and a couple of carbs.
Sad to see it go but I'm done with Polo's and have another couple of projects to be getting on with.
With a little TLC it could be an excellent starter classic/daily driver for a younger driver.
Couple of bits of rust including each corner at the bottom of the rear screen and one corner of the windscreen.

My first ever car (like ever) was a 1.3 Polo in this exact colour - albeit mine was a formel e hatch.

GLWS. Looks cracking!

my first "proper" car that i could use on the road was an f-reg poohole breadvan, in 1043cc flavour.


it was an ace little thing, when vw were at their peak for good solid cars.


my first car was a skoda estelle, which i didnt/couldn't/wouldn't trust to drive it far on the road. hence the polo been the first car i could use on the road.


i always liked the look of the saloon ones though. and this looks a nice one.


its not for me now, no time, money or place to keep it, but even so, its a bonny little car. GLWS!
