LP5T blauschwartz metallic paint. Very rare colour apparently and only an optIon for 16v cars for a few years. Even rarer on an 8v but being a run out model might explain this.

I bought this car February 2013 and spent some time over a few years getting it tidied up, mostly mechanical overhauling, did some paintwork and used a donor car for all the missing clips, trim and wrong screws etc. I stone chipped the underside and used a spare seat I had to repair the drivers bolster. There isn’t much I haven’t touched on this car, dash board, windscreen and the fuel tank are about the only bits

Once the car was on the road in September 2016 I used it on rotation as my daily driver and covered around 7000 miles that year. Since then it’s done 1000 odd miles a year. It’s failed a few mots on emissions, the air flow flap on the air box was set up wrong, took A few mots to get set up correctly, all good now though

Lots of money spent on this car over the years, engine rebuild, brake discs, pads, hoses, solid pipes, master cylinder, new clutch and cable, engine mounts, wishbones, wheel bearings, battery and lots more. The only service history is from me but shows pretty much everything I’ve put on it

Few bits to be aware of
Small amount of lacquer peel on the roof, not helped by the heat wave this summer and what appears to be a crack in the paint behind the left rear wheel, only showed itself recently as well. Paintwork looks good from a distance and cleans up well but has chips and marks as you’d expect from a car this age that’s been used well. Ive never seen it as a show car.

Rear wiper motor doesn’t work spare to come with car

One of the hinges on the parcel shelf has snapped off, I think I’ve got one on a shelf, fingers crossed I can find it.

Left hand rubber roof gutter is a bit tatty at the back. Spare good one to come with car

Maf display bulb gone out, all info works though, spare dash bulbs to go with car

I fitted a new headlining a few years ago, it’s not the best, some bits near the back resemble a rhinos neck. The board itself was fibreglassed so that’s all good but if you want I perfect it’ll need new fabric from vw heritage. Again.

I’d love to keep this car and take it for a blast every now and then but it’s not my only car and Id like the money to put into other projects.

Come and have a look for yourself, I should be able to take anyone out using my fathers trade plates, me driving though. Car is on sorn

I am also open to sensible offers, only if you’ve seen the car and have the money.

Thanks for looking
