1997 VW Golf Cabriolet Auto
Reg. no. R147 VFL
Chassis no. WVWZZZIEZWK004275
Engine no. AGG142677
The arrival in 1991 of the Mk. 3 version of VW’s massively successful Golf also heralded the arrival of a more rounded style to bring the car up to date, dispensing with the angular looks of the previous model. The change in appearance did nothing to dent the car’s appeal however, as nearly 5 million were sold over the next decade. The new design was also awarded the European Car of the Year title in 1992. Engines ranged from 1.4 litres up to a 2.9 litre V6, but most Golfs were sold with engines somewhere in between, the 2.0 litre engine as featured in this car offering a sub-ten-second dash to 60 and a top speed of 130mph. In 1994 the cabriolet version was introduced, replacing the previous Mk. 1-based model, and proved popular. It remained in production until 2002, two years after the rest of the Mk. 3 range, and proved to be the last Golf cabriolet for ten years, until the Mk. 6 version.
This 1997 automatic 2-litre Cabriolet is in good condition and good running order; with 75,700 miles on the clock, backed up by a comprehensive set of service stamps, it is a low-mileage example for a Golf of this era. It comes with a large file of invoices, an MOT until July 2019 and a V5c. Perfect for the upcoming spring!
