1987 Volkswagen Mk 1 Golf GTI Convertible

Grooms Car Hire

Acquired by The Private Collection in December 2017, this special edition ‘All White’ Golf GTI Convertible is a very special car indeed. Only 138 were made and they were some of the last MK 1 Golfs produced. Finished in Alpine white body work, with the classic GTI tartan check interior in white, a new white hood and painted white alloys, this car looks stunning.

Designed by Karmann, the convertibles were obviously based on the greatest of all hot hatches, the Golf GTI. Fitted with a fuel injected 1.8lt engine, motoring press and enthusiasts widely agree that this was the hot hatch to have, and the convertible was the icing on the cake.

Registered in 1987 this car has a fascinating history and a long association with Sir David Jason, who bought the car in May 1988 and registered it in the name of his partner at the time. It was acquired by the owner of The Private Collection at auction at the end of 2017, who himself is a friend of Sir David Jason.

Thrilled to be the new owner of such a wonderful car with such a strong association to his friend, the owner has reported that the Golf drives as well as his BMW B9 Alpina, which rest assured is the highest of accolades. An iconic 1980’s hot hatch convertible for your wedding day!
