Description

Current owners - who is now retired former workshop owner and VAG mechanic - bought the car privately in 1994. He have had it as a nice leasure car during the summers ever since. In recent years it has only been driven to the MOT inspection and on for some few small trips. At the beginning of the 00s, the car was dismantled and got a new coat of original color. All wear parts and mouldings were replaced with new, original. The 1600 engine got a different crankshaft which gives 1.9 liters of stroke volume and an output of around 75 hp, compared to the original output of 50.
The car is in super condition, (see photo). No damage or remarks. Brand new tires have been fitted this year and the car handles really well.

You can recognize the 1303 by larger rear lights and arched front window. When the VW Golf came in 1974, it quickly became a bestseller and the 1303 cost almost as much. This contributed to the cessation of production of the regular 1303 with finally ended in 1975. But production of the convertible continued until the Golf came in a convertible version as well. Today, the 1303 is the most sought after VW convertible. The reasons:
It's charming, it's a 4 seater and it is fun to drive.
