Find of the Day: 1999 Volkswagen Polo Wagon

It’s not every day that a forum legend comes up for sale, but with this Polo Wagon, the so-called Greenland Polo, we have just that.  Originally purchased by Jamie Orr from Orchid Euro in 2010, the car had previously served on a US Air Force Base in Thule, Greenland, before being shipped to the states as part of a military surplus sale.  Since then, Jamie has put a great deal of effort into restoring, repairing and subtly modifying the car, all of which was documented in this thread.

As the thread can say much more than a few paragraphs ever could, I’ll defer those interested to the 25 page long chronicle of the rebuilding process- it’s quite the read.

The car is currently available for the price of $8,400, and located just outside of Philadelphia, PA.
