Well, I've had mine for a year and a half now and I rescued it from the scrap heap it was heading towards. I looked at a few Mk1 GTIs and even some Mk2s, but this was the one that 'spoke to me'. It was basically saying "Save me".  8)

It's an August 1982 1800 GTI - So big bumper big light combo. Sold originally in the UK and imported to NZ in '84, I'm the 3rd owner.   
Factory Schwarz black with black and grey interior.

Currently sporting some 'temporary' flat black paint and other notable mods include:
- Becker stereo
- H&R Cup suspension (Febi-Bilstein top mounts up front)
- Stainless exhaust
- Custom lower front X brace, built by 80 Vert
- 'Missing Link' weighted short shifter
- '80s aftermarket sunroof
- Aftermarket Pirelli P Slots with Pirelli P7s.

Plans are to keep driving it lots and slowly restoring back to period original, doing as much as possible myself.

I've had this for a couple of years, 1983 NZ new, 110k
Before this I had a UK import mars red GTI cab for about 7 years.
It's got some Nuespeed and GTi Engineering bits on it but is other wise standard.

Not sure about long term plans, Thinking about some 15" ATS cups and dropping it a bit.

Maddie, 83 gti 1800, 5 speed. Diamond Copper Brown Metallic (LP8Y), apparently a uber rare color. NZ seemed to get gold, silver and bronze cars around this time, as a few bronze mk1 convertibles around.

Got her from filx a while back, before that ex Gannaway Mk1 hoard. Always amazed at how well she drives, the cars must have been a revelation in the early 80s. Just hit 190k. Running pretty stock, bar spax lowering springs (only about 30mm), and 15 inch corrado steeles. Have fixed the mfa, new genuine headlights, oil cooler, valve guides, and had the drivers bolster repaired.

Plans....considering puttin on the zender 3 piece spoiler, but means drilling holes...

BB's old Mk1. I bought it about a year ago. Spent a bit on it but mostly on rust repair. As most of you will know, it's got an ABF and running Vmaxx coilovers. I've done mintex pads better fluid and stainless braided lines. Oh and a duckbill and 15x7 "no name" wheels. Next on the list is probably a couple of race seats and quick release boss kit (just because I can lol) OR panel and paint and berg cup arches maybe.

First lady owner bought it new in Chch and used it till it ran the bearings. Sold years later to the owner of the Jap import yellow GTI on here where it sat under some pine trees!

Has been sitting for years now but finally in dry storage! Will be kept pretty original.

Hi Shifty

Pretty bad, it's rotten through and not salvageable. I'll need a complete body to start fresh off. I've been chasing some leads but nothing so far. Though I'd just try here to see if anyone knows a body sitting somewhere waiting for new life :)

Post by: RS ZWEI on March 06, 2017, 01:20:05 pm
Yup!

Its an interesting car.
ExUk imported by Anne. There has been a cock up and its been registered as a 1987 which I think its a 1977. I think it might be a 1977? Also, it could be a Richard Lloyd racing conversion, I think they did the conversion from LHD to RHD before the factory started doing in in 1978 - hence why the wipers go the wrong way on your car. Its had some 1980's aftermarket bodykit on it, and had its steel bumpers updated to the later plastic ones - this was done in the UK.
Im pretty sure those wheels were the original wheels off my Mk1 GTI.

Im pretty sure those wheels were the original wheels off my Mk1 GTI.

Correct on all counts, I've also checked the chassis number with the help of a fellow member dave, and confirmed this is in fact a 77. It was converted from LHD to RHD and the bodykit has since been removed. It was also turbo'd at some stage and removed. The bottom block is Audi80 I think from what I've been told. The wheels was swapped a few times, not sure where those one's came from. The engine still turned round 5 years ago and they said it goes like stink, but it's in pretty bad shape atm. I haven't pulled anything apart since the body is really bad and don't want to proceed until I know for sure what to do. I'm looking for a donor car, but from what I've heard it's not going to be easy.

I'm going to get some expert advice on the body, as that's my main concern. The interior and mechanics I'm not too worried about.

Yes I'm happy with it. My goal was to make it look 'well cared for' rather than 'restored' and I think I've achieved that.  Now I can focus on brakes and then the fun stuff under the bonnet.  ;D
