Volkswagen Passat 1,6 CL Formula E 1.6 — 1982

Passat in a special economy version that is dreamlike and extraordinarily well-kept. Since new, the owner has been wonderfully fastidious, and the car has been garaged on jack stands for nearly 20 years.

"Because to an owner's care, this car has become a collector car and time capsule, and it always has a special appeal among enthusiasts."


The car was delivered by the Volkswagen dealer on Grafiska Vägen in Gothenburg to its first owner in May 1982. He had previously owned a few other Volkswagen cars that were cared for with meticulous care. It is said that the owner, after every use, would wash and vacuum the car. It is also clear to see that this car has been cared for by someone with both talent and willingness for order and care. A detailed documentation in the form of a thick folder, is available for those who are interested. When it was time for the next vehicle from the Volkswagen group's flora, sometime in the late 2000s, the meticulously cared for Passat was put away in the garage, raised on custom-made adapted wooden stands in the garage. And there it stood. We have now transported it to the auction depot in Sandared.

  • Mechanical condition:

    After a simple starting up service, the car runs and drives great; however, it will require a new battery and a check of the belts and rubber pipes. Clutch and brakes are in good working order, with smooth gearshifts, which is rather remarkable given that the car has not been started in 20 years.

  • Interior condition:

    Despite having driven nearly 200,000 km, the car is clean, orderly, and free of wear and tear. There is a white deposit in the grooved part of the steering wheel center in the photographs. It has now been thoroughly cleaned. The back seat and boot have the sensation of a new car, and the parcel shelf is unbroken and not bleached. Lifting the similarly spotless red rug in the boot gives the same clean and new sensation as around the spare wheel well.

  • Exterior condition:

    Original white paint with a few little stains from storage. It will appear brand new again after a decent polishing. Good trims and features, undamaged wheels, and older Michelin tyres with good wear.

  • General condition:

    A daily driver back in the 1980-90s, its now an intriguing collector car today. All in a documented and exemplary fine condition.

Facts about the model

Den andra generationens Passat B2 med tillägget Formula E hade en intressant och framsynt transmission där redan 4:e växeln var ganska hög och den femte växeln, betecknad som E på växelspaksknoppen, genererade tillsammans med en frihjulsmekanism en extra bra bränsleekonomi. Prestanda var i det här fallet en sekundär egenskap.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
