Original Condition, VW Scirocco 1984

Original Condition, VW Scirocco 1984 offered for sale by the owner

This second generation of the Scirocco is a high-performance compact car ever offered by German automaker Volkswagen in the 80s. This 1984 model has been driven about 177000 miles and remained in its original trim, overall in good condition. The North American Scirocco version example carries a 1.8L 8-Valve engine with automatic transmission.

The pics confirm it has dent and rust but it's quite easy to fix, all looks perfect and promising, and hopefully nothing issues or missed. The dash has many cracks that need to be replaced, the engine looks pretty well maintained, if you're interested, coming closer is a must.

Nice classic Volkswagen sports car that would be a great light project for enthusiasts. The Sirocco is the flagship of Volkswagen cars, a top lineup of Volkswagen sports cars lineage, where the current generation not imported to the US. It could be a reliable and unique fast car that is offered for sale by the owner for an affordable price today.

Detail by owner
I regret I have to sell my Scirocco, but I'm moving and I can't bring it with me.

The car is in great condition considering its age, both cosmetically and mechanically. It's getting harder and harder to find an unmodified Scirocco in this kind of shape, and I really hope this car makes it to a good home.

Mechanically, the car is awesome - I wouldn't be afraid to drive this car anywhere. It pulls strong through all gears, and most importantly, it still provides a healthy dose of Farfegnugen. It appears the previous owner installed a Neuspeed throttle body along with an anti-sway bar with polyurethane bushings. It has new struts, but if I were keeping it I'd put some more aggressive springs on it to tighten up the handling even more.

Exterior cosmetics: There's obviously a little ding on the front corner (I've been told it's an easy fix, I just haven't done it), there's some sun damage/oxidization to the paint on the roof and the dashboard is pretty cracked. The interior is in amazing shape - there isn't even any wear on the seat bolsters.

I've only put about 5k miles on it in the 5 years I've owned it (mostly on 20 mile drives around the neighborhood every weekend to keep it properly exercised), and in that time I've done the following:

New clutch (less than 300 miles)
New radiator
New battery
New tires
New shocks (new/more aggressive springs were on my to-do list)
New Headlights (x4)
Recently tuned up

Of course, there are a few things that require correction to be perfect - it's a 31 year old car, after all. I'd be happy to run down the list of things that I'd planned to do with all serious prospective buyers.
