VW Golf 2 in car condition of the year: This golden Golf is unique

Did someone leave it in the back room and then forget it? This Golf 2 on eBay really doesn’t show its age. It was built in 1987, but has only 20,124 kilometers on the clock, but it can be plausible, rather one should look for damage to the vehicle.

The paint in “Gold Metallic” shines like on the first day, the light brown upholstery looks appetizing, the trunk looks like it has been leaked. The three-door hatchback has a new general inspection, but is deregistered. If you want to test drive it, you have to apply for a short-term license plate on site.

Probably a pensioner vehicle: little equipment, little horsepower.


In general, the Golf 2 enjoys a good reputation as a youngtimer: unlike the original Golf, the successor, built from 1983 to 1991, had excellent rust prevention. The wax was shot so generously into the cavities that it typically oozed out of it in hot summers. This can be seen at one point in the trunk of the Gold Golf on eBay. It also doesn’t seem to have any wounds, scratches or replaced parts. It is motorized with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 72 hp.

The Golf has an automatic system, which increases fuel consumption a little.

The power goes to the road via a four-speed automatic transmission and the front wheels. It takes time: the golden Golf needs around 14 seconds from 0 to 100 km / h. The top speed is around 167 km / h. The automatic also swallows a little more fuel; about nine liters are due on average for 100 km. The equipment also suggests that the golden Golf with the low mileage belonged to a pensioner: It is not available, there are no extras!

Nevertheless, the price is comparable to that of precious metal: the seller would like to have 12,000 euros. A well-maintained model of the Golf 2 with three doors and a small petrol engine is currently priced between 3500 and 4700 euros, so the announcement is quite brisk. On the other hand: a copy in this condition won’t be available again anytime soon. In this respect, the golden Golf should be of interest to collectors. It is questionable whether the provider, who is apparently not a car dealer, will allow himself to be negotiated.

There are no headrests in the back seats, but there are seat belts.

Unfortunately, the provider is silent about any documentation, i.e. checkbooks and workshop invoices. The superficially excellent condition and the odometer reading speak for themselves, but of course the underbody, the chassis with brakes and exhaust and the engine should also be carefully inspected on such an old car.
