Golf MK1


The Volkswagen Golf MK1 Cabriolet is a classic convertible variant of the first-generation Volkswagen Golf, which was introduced in 1979. The Golf MK1 Cabriolet is renowned for its iconic design, open-air driving experience, and enduring popularity among automotive enthusiasts.

Introduced in 1980, the Golf MK1 Cabriolet retained the basic design and engineering of the MK1 Golf hatchback but featured a reinforced body structure to compensate for the removal of the roof. Its convertible top was manually operated and could be folded down to enjoy the wind in your hair and the sun on your face.

The Golf MK1 Cabriolet maintained the front-engine, front-wheel-drive layout of the hatchback, offering a range of engine options to suit different performance preferences and markets. Engine choices included fuel-efficient gasoline engines and diesel options, providing a balance of power and efficiency for urban commuting and cruising.

Inside, the Golf MK1 Cabriolet typically offered seating for four passengers in a comfortable and stylish cabin. Depending on the trim level and options, features could include amenities like cloth or leather upholstery, power windows, and a variety of audio systems.

Throughout its production run, which lasted until 1993, the Golf MK1 Cabriolet underwent several updates and revisions to keep it competitive and up-to-date with evolving safety and emissions standards. Despite its eventual discontinuation, the Golf MK1 Cabriolet remains highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts for its classic design, fun driving experience, and nostalgic appeal.

Today, well-maintained examples of the Golf MK1 Cabriolet are prized possessions among car enthusiasts, who appreciate its timeless style, simplicity, and the joy of open-air motoring that it offers.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.

As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
