Picked up a RHD 5 Door 1.8 GU syncro in blue......needs a little care - only interior and body work planned - just to keep it looking nice....tempted by an engine upgrade - but would rather buy one done or get a rally - neither of which i have the money for....

hi all new to the site, recently got a rallye 1989 and last few months sorting out the various bits on getting sorted. have come across some of the probs mentioned on site. so far sorting out mechanics car is 1.9. replaced all but the end donuts and bearings on propshats. got repo prop in luton to sort out front prop after locator split causing prop not to drive in line. next is stripping all rust and painting. will add more soon'

Hi guys, Darron from Birmingham, I've been on the site for a while but only just bought my first syncro as I've been searching for the right one.

The car is a Lhd 3 door 1990 1.8 GT syncro in Lhasa green,
With factory air con, heated seats, electric headlight adjusters, cat/converter & abs, it needs a little tlc
but that wont be a problem :-)
I will be using it as it is for a year or so before I do a bare metal strip down and rebuild, I've got a nicely tuned G60 with approx 300 bhp which has been waiting for this car so I can't wait to get to it.

Golf GT Syncro, 3dr, Lhasa green - extras:- air con, abs,heated seats,headlight adjusters, catalyst.

Apparently Lhasa green was only available in the UK on a MK2 as an optional extra for 8 months back in 1987, not sure on how accurate this is (found it on the net) I'd never seen a mk2 this colour before and I've been knocking around in vw land for years.

Just realised I've never put a picture up.
I'm sticking with the 1.8 Engine that was originally in it.
