In summary this is an honest car that drives well. It would make a great small project for someone who would be looking to invest some love, time and money into it. It will be well worth as this has the potential to be a future classic!
NOTE: The wheels shown in the pictures are not included in the sale. These have been lent to me by a friend and will need to go back to him once the Syncro is sold. I have some 13” wheels that can be put onto the Syncro to get the new owner home.
Located near Havant, Hampshire.
If you have any questions or would like any specific questions answering please let me know. PM or calls on 07793 411622. I really encourage anyone potentially interested in the Syncro to come and view it!
I am looking to get £2,200ono for it (not including wheels in pictures). In my opinion this is a good but fair price when compared to standard 2wd mk2 golf which don’t have the benefit or ‘rarity’ of the Syncro models.
