A great example of the now-really-quite-rare Volkswagen Golk Mk II (Mk2) Syncro.
There are only 15 of these on the road right now, including this one! Many of the others are imports or conversions, but this is an original right-hand drive model factory-made in Wolfsburg specifically for the UK market. Only around 500 were made in factory right-hand-drive spec, so these days this is getting to be quite a rare model.
Built in 1988 and registered in 1989 as F-registered (and remains as such). Both sets of wheels with tyres are included (see below). Many more pictures are available upon request!
--- The good ---
Four-wheel-drive (yes, you read that right!)
Original paintwork, bodywork good condition
Full engine rebuild at 142,000 miles (bore, reline, new pistons, rings etc)
Relatively new clutch - fitted when engine was rebuilt
Professionally fitted Weber DMTL 32/34 carburettor (manual choke)
Oil catch tank (although not really needed, breathes very well)
Matching grey interior, excellent condition, barely any wear
Summer wheels - Original BBS GTI alloys, with a full set of Vredestein Sportrac 3 tyres
Winter wheels - "G60" steels, with a full set of Vredestein Snowtrac 3 tyres
Original spare - "G60" steel, with Pirelli P600 tyre
--- The bad ---
A few paint bubbles under each window and below the windscreen
One sticky doorhandle (driver's side rear door)
147,000 miles (but see engine rebuild!)
Non-original cover for spare wheel
--- The ugly ---
I couldn't think of any, it's a beautiful example of a beautiful car! :)
