In the early 1970s, the popularity of the beetle steadily declined because it was an obsolete technique compared to its competitors at the time. In addition, a low-power model was needed during the economic crisis at the time. The first Golf was originally sold with a 1.1-liter 50-horsepower and a 1.5-liter 70-horsepower engine. The first Golf, after the prototype was redesigned by Giorgetto Giugiaro himself, was unveiled in Munich in May 1974. The range consisted of a 3- and 5-door hatchback and a convertible, but the Caddy was also built on the basis of the car. The cult-creating GTI version with a 1.6-liter, 110-horsepower engine is launched, and a diesel-powered Golf will be launched this year.
The piece offered for sale by Veterán Autó Kft. Is a 5-door version. It can provide a very good foundation for a restoration project. The car has expired Hungarian documents.
Restored pieces change hands on the European market for € 16,000.
