1988 Volkswagen Golf MkII GTI 3 door 8v Limited Edition which VW issued in 1988 in Oak Green with Rainbow cloth trim. This Campaign edition started the trend with the smart Hella 1/2 tinted rear lights and has the beautiful Le Castellet alloy wheels. This car is 100% original in every detail except the original Blaupunkt London radio/cassette stereo was nicked in 1989 and replaced with a Blaupunkt Toronto radio/cassette stereo. This was my Wife’s company car from new and we bought it from the Lease co as part of her redundancy package in 1990. The car has a total service history with invoices detailing work carried out. Standard GTI 8V equipment: 3-door bodyshell, MFA trip computer, sports seats, factory sunroof, twin exhaust tailpipes. Exceptionally low mileage as for many years it was the third car, and is currently the 4th car, in the family. IE me and the Missus. It is untouched & original. MoT to Oct 2021 Mechanically sound with an extensive £2000+ service in Sept 2020 FSH pdf copies available. Bodywork will need attention as that is now the weak point.


Excellent performance from 16V, all models have a good performance/economy balance, drives brilliantly out of town, great build quality, longevity and reliability
The definitive 1980s hatchback, sold, well made, practical and reliable
Almost as good to drive as a Golf GTI - and that's praise enough
