1990 Fox Wagon


1990 VW Fox Wagon.

  For whatever reason, the Fox wagon has always been an interesting car to me.  Only available in the US from 1987 to 1990, the wagon had a style all it's own.  Produced in Brazil, the Fox was VW's economy car, being sold at a price point below the Golf and offering a decent ride and reliability at a very decent price.  Nowadays, the FOX isn't tremendously popular among VW Enthusiasts but certainly does have a following of its own.  I took this FOX wagon in on a trade towards a New Beetle "Herbie" I had created for my car lot.  I lowered the car with Brazilian springs from www.brazilshopping.com and replaced the rest of the suspension at the same time (Tremendous difference in ride).  Thanks to Chris at Force 5 in Concord for the 5-spoke "Flyer" alloy wheels.  I needed to add H&R 5mm spacers to prevent from rubbing.  The car also has a brand new Techtonics exhaust which gives it a nice sound and a little more pull out on the road.

I had the car completely professionally repainted in VW "Jazz Blue Pearl," a color most notably found on the 20th Anniversary GTI, but also available on earlier Cabrios and GTI's too.  Certainly an interesting car which I created more for the fun of it than anything else.  This FOX even has the factory flip-up sunroof!  Click here to go back.
