Wanted - a Jetta

Hi,

I'm interested in getting my hands on a Jetta. Perhaps I should see someone for my addictions but I will sell one of the corrados at some point (probs the 16v).

I'd like the Jetta to be in nice condition: MOT with a decent history of being looked after, useable, not too much rust. Something I can use and enjoy. I'm not worried about mileage. Would love a GTI but a TX would do me nicely too. I would consider anything that's nice. I'm in contact with the chap listing the red one on car and classic but what else is out there?

Thanks!
Matt

Still from the VW stable, it's a mk3 Golf GTI 16v with 78k on it.

It's a little project: rust hole on one of the drain hole in rear footwell, current non running but is coughing to start. Suspect Coil Pack. Fuel pump is priming. Needs a good wash! Last owner had it since 2001.

No rust on the body, sills are ok but will want attention one day I suspect

Oh lovely - I've a real soft spot for the MK3. Never owned a MK3 GTI, but a Driver and really loved that car - especially the seats.

With ABF getting "R-A-R-E"  actually these days- where did you source this? Won't become a parts bin will it?!

Edit - Happy now forum software - I've put it in quotes!!

Nope.....

Nooo won't be broken -  this car is too good! I hadn't realised how " r a r e "   they were - it was on ebay but did a deal outside. Cost the same as my mk2 but my mk2 is more a project and has 100k more miles on it. This car had a long term owner for most of it's life, mk2 similar but was 1 owner.

Clean almost everywhere - one of the rubber plugs in the rear floor have rotted through. Bottoms of front arches are no good too. Fuel door area is fine - just dirty.

Great project Matt! It's a shame they got a bad rep, but I think they'll have their day! I still like the cabrio mk3 too and they're DIRT cheap. There's something for me about the MK3 that really appeals - still a classic but has all the mod-cons you need. Far too many got boy-raced up but I think they've all moved onto the MK4 and 5 now. I'd love a nice dragon green 16v in standard guise - possibly just lowered a little. Perfect!
