Introducing Thor! ;)

Post by MRMENDER » Mon Jan 17, 2022 5:22 pm

I was approached at the NEC last November by someone wanting their non running off the road for 8 years scirocco to go to a good home. It was agreed for a charitable donation I would take the car. Last month I picked it up. On the whole I'm very impressed. Just passed the MOT. Lots of work to the fuel system. Full service, cam belt water pump etc.
Car is very interesting. First registered February 82 makes it a very early RHD car. (Wiring loom an fuse box are all MK1)Started out as a 1.6 GL but has a 1.8 injection engine fitted plus the previous owner had the seats recovered in leather.
The colour is interesting. Cirrus gray only used by VW group for 3 years 81 to 84
The previous owner had it restored. However the respray on close inspection is nothing special.
The only stipulations by the previous owner were it wasn't to be broken up, also I had to keep his name for it Thor Image

WOW, what a nice example, she's scrubbed up well too. Don't get many offers like that every day!
Guess someone change the GL badge for the standard non spec type too.
Any history with it?
