September 1983 saw the introduction of the second-generation Golf Mk2 that grew slightly in terms of wheelbase, exterior and interior dimensions, while retaining, in a more rounded form, the Mk1's overall look. Although it was available on the home market and indeed most other left-hand drive markets by the end of 1983, it was not launched onto the British market until March 1984. The original Golf had been one of the few front-wheel drive hatchbacks sold in Britain and indeed anywhere else on its arrival a decade earlier; by this stage, however, virtually every major manufacturer was producing a Golf-like hatchback.
The MK2 GTI featured a 1.8 8-valve fuel-injected engine from its launch, with a 16-valve version capable of more than 120mph being introduced in 1985.
This two door, big bumpered example of the MK2 Golf GTI is described by the vendor as being in very good and original condition, with the only non standard features being the stereo and the black colouring to the BBS alloys.
The car comes with full service history, and a large folder of invoices and old MOTs going back to 1995 to show that it has been very well looked after during its 26 years. It also comes with the original service book and instruction manual etc, all in the original VW folder.
Standard examples of these modern classics are becoming difficult to find, so the value is only going to increase with time.
