Possibly a unique opportunity to acquire such a low mileage, low ownership GTS. Undervalued for many years, the Scirocco has rightly become a true classic and gained a significant following. Sadly, few examples remain, and we would imagine there is no better example currently available. The car was ordered in July 1986 from Volkswagen Main Dealer, Lionel Smith VAG in Manchester, by the first owner, Mrs Mary Waby. The order form and deposit receipts in the history file confirm the purchase price of £7,430 with delivery specified at 7:00am on the 1st August 1986, the day the all important new ‘D’ registration came out. All doors cards, headlining and interior trim is in excellent order and the carpets remain protected by the dealer fitted genuine VW rubber floor mats. The fabulously retro dashboard and fascia houses fully operational equipment, including the Blaupunkt Oxford stereo, and all switchgear retains the quality functionality you would expect from 1980’s Volkswagen. The luggage area is pristine with immaculate polished inner wheel tubs and unmarked carpet. The original space saver spare wheel with jack and brace is present along with even the paper build label and factory inspection stickers. All handbooks, guides and point of sale literature remain in the dealership branded document wallet. Completing the history file is a workshop manual and a collection of period Scirocco sales brochures including a separate one for this Limited-Edition GTS model. A standard, low owner and low mileage Scirocco is a rare find indeed and the next fortunate keeper will benefit from 34 years of cherished ownership.

On test, the car drove without issues, rattles or bumps and felt a lot more modern than its age. A truly usable modern classic that can surely only appreciate in value.
