The MK 1 Golf GTI is widely regarded as the original hot hatch, kick-starting the booming market of hot hatchbacks we see today. The GTI was a huge hit thanks to its simple premise – sports car performance and handling in a hatchback package. Originally created by senior engineers as an after-work project, the GTI was fitted with stiffer, lower suspension, than the standard Golf, a larger diameter clutch, improved gear ratios, vented front discs, and a bored out engine from 76.5mm to 79.55mm with Bosch K-Jetronic injection, resulting in a power output of 100 bhp. Also fitted was a feature now synonymous with the GTI – the red grille trim.The 1983 model year was the final year for the hugely successful Mk1 GTI, and VW marked it by producing the Campaign edition cars (marketed as the Pirelli Edition In Europe). The Campaign model was in layman’s terms a Mk1 GTI with all the option boxes ticked, including; a sunroof, 14″ Pirelli Alloys, Four Headlamp Grille, tinted glass, metallic paint, and a leather trimmed grille, these cars are now viewed as the most desirable amongst fans of the Mk1 GTI.

General features shared with the standard MK1 GTI:

Flared mudguards with plastic flare edges/extensions.
Plastic front air dam spoiler.
Side stripe decals on lower door / rocker panel (black or silver, depending on car’s paint colour).
Red pinstripe frame around front grille. (Colour is “Mars Red”, code: L31B).
Matt-black decal surrounding rear windscreen (Note: not applied to cars painted Black or Helios Blue).
Black window frames (vs chrome strip on standard Golf).
“GTI” badge front LHS grille and “GOLF GTI” badge on rear RHS tailgate.
Some cars were fitted with a fuel cap with a spring loaded cover, known as the ‘valve tap cap’. Others retained the standard fuel cap.
185/60 x14 Tyres.

Additional information applicable to the Campaign edition:

Available in 3-door hatch body only.
Factory installed sliding sun roof.
Green tinted glass all round.
Matt black ‘A-pillar’ trims.
Four headlamp grille, consisting of standard lights (outer) and fog lights (inner).
6? X 14? Pirelli alloy wheels, fitted with 185/60 x 14 tyres. These are different to the Pirelli wheels applied to the Mk2 GTI. The Mk1 wheels have larger P’s. The gap between each P on the MK1 wheel is 7mm, whilst on the MK2 wheel it is 10mm). Further, the MK1 centre caps should have ‘Pirelli’ embossed on their face (blank on the MK2). Under the centre cap, a single “A” should appear at the end of the model code (MK2 rims have “AA”)

The car’s 1.8 litre engine uses a 5-speed manual gearbox and is mounted transversely driving the front wheels, unusual for VW at the time of the Golf’s launch.

The car is in fabulous condition, a testament to its 7 previous owners who have all clearly maintained it very well and kept the car in an original factory state. The mechanical elements perform like a car with half the miles. The interior is immaculate. The body work is arrow straight, with perfect shut lines, and the paint work has no major imperfections at all. The engine bay still retains much of its factory protective seal. Again, all good signs that the car has been owned by a series of enthusiast owners.

To prepare the car for sale, we have recently carried out the following work:
