For more than 40 years, a group of crazy Friedrichsdorfers have been tuning Golfs under the Oettinger name. In 1990, they turned their talents to the Mk2 GTI. Although this car isn’t exactly one of those, an equally crazy Canuck was ready with a fresh GTI and an Oettinger stroker kit and it’s our find of the day.
This stroked 2.2-liter car, with BBM RM rims, Hella taillights, and Borla exhausts comes from British Columbia, which is in Canada. Luckily, this Mk2 Golf is now 26 years old, so the border shouldn't be too much of an issue.
Despite coming from the land of salt and snow, the owners says that his Golf was meticulously maintained and kept out of the snow. As a result, there’s apparently no rust to speak of.
On top of that, even though it’s older than Emma Watson, this Mk2 has fewer than 100,000 miles on the clock. And given that the owner saw fit to mention a rattle in the dash, I’m going to assume that Freud would’ve called him a bit fussy, and—apart from the mythical granny who only drove it to church on Sundays—that’s exactly the kind of person whose car you want to buy.
Aside from all that, there’s a goodly amount of Teutonic cool going on with this Golf . The owner is asking $9,500 US dollars for this 1990 Golf, so he can buy an NSX.
