In May 1974, Volkswagen presented the first-generation Golf as a modern front-wheel drive, long-range replacement for the Volkswagen Beetle. Later Golf variations included the Golf GTI 'hot hatch' introduced in June 1976, a diesel powered version from September 1976, the Jetta notchback saloon in October 1979 and from the end of 1979 the Golf cabriolet built by Karmann. September 1983 saw the introduction of the second-generation Volkswagen Golf, the Mk. II, that grew slightly in terms of wheelbase, exterior and interior dimensions while retaining, in a more rounded form, the Mk. I's overall look.
This Golf van was originally registered on 1st August 1989 and even though it is a van, it has rear seats fitted to it. The condition of this exceedingly rare Volkswagen is excellent, it is remarkably original, with the original paint rubbing through to the primer in places. The current owner rescued the van and has spent the last 12 months recommissioning it, this includes a new head gasket, engine sump, radiator and water pump. The brakes have also been overhauled including new brake pipes and she has been shod with new tyres. Mk. II Golf’s are rare, original condition is even rarer but a van! When was the last time you saw one?
