1978 Early Mk1 Golf ‘Thomas’
We found Thomas in Cosham. He had been stored in a garage for 2 years previous to us finding him and the garage roof had been leaking on his roof and run down the pillars so he had developed big rust spots and holes at the bottom of the front pillars. His original 1.1 still ran well but we replaced it with a mk1 1.6 GTI engine. He’s slammed on fully adjustable coilovers with 13″ ATS classics.
He is currently in the workshop awaiting a fully re-spray in the original colour, manderin orange. The shell is being sandblasted. The engine is being replaced for a 1.8 20v turbo AGU engine. The interior is being re-upholstered in black leather.
