Find of the Day: 1984 Volkswagen GTI

The days are getting shorter and temperatures are dropping, meaning it’s the best time to pick up a winter project.  In our minds, the best project is one that runs and drives.  Preferably something that someone else has already had a jump start on, and got tired of.  Something much like today’s Find of the Day.


This 1984 GTI has been the pride and joy of its current owner, who has undoubtedly put a lot of time and effort into the car.  It’s not perfect, but with a G60 swapped in, it does run so the new owner can enjoy some of the warmer fall days before tucking it away for the winter.  Even better, most of what the car needs can be performed in the comfort of a nice, warm, dry garage by a careful individual.  Meaning that come spring, this car is very likely to turn even more heads than it does now with some minor work.


This GTI is currently for sale on eBay Motors at a Buy It Now price of $6,000 without the BBS RS wheels.  More pictures and information can be found right here.
