$16,500 will buy you this beauty! The OP is copping a fair bit of negativity in regards to the price but hey, it's his car, it's gorgeous and only 2000 of these Campaign models were made so it's pretty damn rare!

Lovely looking car, now how much change is down the back of the couch?

11-03-2010, 03:49 PM
a very exclusive car indeed, doubt i'll ever come across a 3dr mk1 in australia b4.. + being a mint condition its worth every cent.. :)

It has had a recent respray in candy white (non genuine colour)
Looks awesome but in my mind that would detract from the value of the car. If it was unrestored id be all over it.

Its a very special car, all the best to him in getting that sort of money for it. A guy i know from another non VW forum recently just brought this MK 2 for much more reasonable money:

I looked at this car before the current owner bought it. To say he has made an impressive transformation would be an understatement.

Here's a couple of before pics...




...it drove quite nicely on my test drive, too. I just felt the attention needed to the bodywork was beyond what I was prepared to take on.

i know this is a bit delayed
DAMNNN that's hot look car start saving my pennies

Hmmm... Sell Mk3 minus engine, buy Mk1, dump VR6 into it, ????, rip hektik skidz, profit?

Very pretty car, especially considering the 'before' images posted by Lima.. Good luck to the (who I am assuming is a...) bloke!

23-04-2010, 03:19 AM
Yeah its a dude... and by the looks of those P plates a very VERY cool dude at that!! hahaha. Now it takes real taste to pick that for a possible first car.. sure beats rice burners in my book!!

I seen this around on various forums, its really in the eye of the beholder buying something like this. Im currently rebuilding my golf from ground up, and i have more than 16k invested in it already and its still a rolling shell in primer. To build a high quality mk1 will cost you more than 16k.

The only thing that puts me off a car like this is the P plates in the window, not saying he is not skilled but id be more worried about the quality of the rebuild being a first timer. A trip out to look at the car will solve this, it looks to be a great little car but pictures can hide alot also.

Just to add fuel to the fire my mate has a 1983 British campaign and he paid $3500 for it and it was pretty decent condition, it wasn't brought from the internet i think the forums hype up prices alittle.

09-05-2010, 09:54 AM
I agree, nice looking car but seems a bit expensive - not sure what he bought it for.. Anyone interested should check it out in person as you can't really tell from the pics whether it's been done properly or quickly to return a profit.

I know when I was looking into to buying the car, I was thinking around $4.5K would have been my upper limit. IIRC the seller was hoping for at least $5K, but apart from that I have no idea what the final sell price was.

Justin the car is on carpoint for $14,500 buy it its rare and collectable now have a look

So the question is whether it's worth $10k more... if it's been a good rebuild, then maybe it is :)

I love this GTI, If the price was right I would jump on it!! But at $14,500.00 i won't!

you could get this one from the UK and save about three grand:


GBP3995 currently = AU$6900 - Add 10% GST and 10% import duty, plus $2.5k (verrrry rough estimate) for shipping costs and you're looking at just over $10k

Once you've modified it to make it compliant (the only things mine needed for the plate was new rear seatbelts and the dash switched to kilometres) that's probably another $1k (if that)

in fact i've changed my mind. don't do it. i want this one...

i have seen this car in person, and it is mint. the body work was professionally done i believe.

yes he has p-plates, but this kid also has a MK4 and MK5 R32 LOL LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and those RS's are the ones Dom built for his Mk1 GLS before he sold it. pretty sweet as well.

That's old news mate I'm already doing that!! Hahaha


15-06-2010, 08:51 PM
Word on the street is the owner of this car won't turn down $12k.

That said it's still not worth it imo.

15-06-2010, 09:35 PM

LOL, I know :D!

Something like this would be cool though:


15-06-2010, 10:19 PM
Yeah that's cool!!

03-07-2010, 03:58 PM
Do you think he would take 10k cash?

Word on the street is the owner of this car won't turn down $12k.

The wheels will inflate the price because on their own theyre worth $2000 - $3000. But agreed. Id pay 10k for it minus wheels if the respray had have been in the original colour. Will cost a pretty penny to have that mistake rectified unfortunately.

Also if its a campaign it should have the campaign trims on the A pillars shouldnt it?

04-07-2010, 04:13 AM
After checking the car out with the previous owner I believe his claim the car is a genuine campaign model. I'd say the A-pillar trims have just not been put back on after the respray, they were on the car when I looked at it.

Also, the car was originally white, so I'm not sure what you're getting at in regards to suggesting the respray is not in the original colour? Unless it's not the OEM white of the day??? The respray on my car is the wrong colour too (ie. it's not OEM Diamond Silver). So at some stage I guess I will put that right.
