1979 VW Polo L Left Hand Drive
This 1979 Polo has only 60,000 Original Miles! This is a late MKI (facelifted) Polo (Plastic Grill, Plastic Bumpers). These first generation Polos were basically re-badged Audi 50's, sharing every component except the Logos on the car. A Company in Maryland (eCode) had brought over some early classic water-cooled cars back in 2006. This Polo came from Germany and was brought here as a project car. It was eventually sold with a number of other parts to Yarrow Thorne (www.yarrowsport.com). Yarrow had lowered the car, installed Mini Lite Aluminum Wheels, and had a custom mural painted on the hood and roof. Also, the valve cover and air cleaner were powder coated (pink, however). I bought the car in October, 2007 and stripped the entire car down and had it completely repainted the original Diamond Silver metallic. It has Scirocco S front Seats, and I just found a Scirocco S Rear seat so the fabric will soon match. Very fun to drive, and surprisingly quick for an 893cc engine . Just a cool old-school euro-spec VW. Click here to go back.
And Here's what the car looked like when I bought it:
