Last week we scored a 1989 8v Canadian Scirocco. We ran the VIN through Carfax and it looked like it was a well-maintained car. We bought it sight unseen at a decent price. We knew nothing about the car except for the fact that it was straight and looked fairly complete. The owner disclose the fact that it had a bad radiator and needed a battery.
All the photos looked great so we made a offer and send a tow truck to pick it up. This is how it came in. See photos.
The paint was very oxidized. But after buffing a small section, we were pleasantly surprised that the paint looked so good.
It was missing a driver side door card, window switch and the wiring was disconnected. Luckily most of the stuff was easily fixable and the hardest part of this car will be bringing the paint back to life.
Stay tuned for more updates on this project as a progress.
