Lot 128 – Volkswagen Scirocco “Scala” 1989
Estimated Value : £4,000 – £5,000
Far rarer than its brother the Golf and now becoming very sought after is the Volkswagen Scirocco and the special addition “Scala” was always a rare sight even when new. This particular car has survived incredibly well with diamond straight body work and no signs of rust and being a Scala, is as original and finished in factory white with its special edition alloy wheels (which have recently been restored). Open the tail gate and all the usual suspect areas where rust can be found are like new, including the underneath edge of the tail gate and boot floor areas. Inside the door shuts on the A post are signs of the original factory grease still and the car was Ziebarted from new to stop any rust getting into the chassis, doors or floor pans.
The interior is incredible, totally original with no signs of wear not even on the driver seat bolsters, un heard of without being retrimed! The 1800cc injected engine fires instantly and soon settles to an even tick over, the vendor has just had a new exhaust manifold fitted. He reports that on the road the car feels so much newer than its age being quick enough to have some fun, while not being expensive to run. Its gear box and clutch are good along with all the general mechanics and electrics. But no more than you would expect from a car that has only 100,497 miles on the clock and is complete with an excellent full service history ( VW up to 68,000 year 2000 then VW specialist ) plus a file full of receipts, bills, old MOt’s and its handbook. With a current MOT through to June 2017 and not to be confused with the “Normal” VW’s on the market, this car is truly ready to go and offers an excellent opportunity for any collector of 80’s cars or Volkswagen fan.
