For Sale! 1987 Volkswagen Jetta GLI
« on: Jun 22, 19, 09:09 »
Looking to find a good home for my ultra reliable mostly stock 87 Jetta GLI

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/van/cto/d/vancouver-1987-volkswagen-mk-2-jetta-gli/6917895985.html

My mechanic thought I should list this at $6500 but I've dropped the price as summer is here and I want this car to be enjoyed!   $5500 obo.

Thanks for your interest in advance.  Only looking to sell the complete car, not any parts only. :)

Lovely car but I think itís a 1988.

Maybe not, but I thought all 1987s had the 7-slat grille and the 3-slay came in 1988

Whatís the production date ( Month/Year) ?

I think '88 would have 1 piece door windows, no?
But you're right. 7 slat is up to 7/87 and 3 slat is 8/87 & on.
Easier to change out grille than doors.
No such thing as spare time, no such thing as free time, no such thing as down time. All you got is life time.
Go.

I agree but I donít think the 8v GLI existed in 1987. But hey it could be one.  I donít know.

That emblem in the front is a 3-slat emblem and itís an 8V GLI one so itís gotta be correct for the car

Hi guys!   Yes, you are right, the front grill is different than original.  I have the original one as well, but it was the 7 slat grill with no badging.  I did this refresh somewhere around the early 1990s.

Who wants to give this car a good home?
