1984 Volkswagen Rabbit GTi: OMFG, 31k Original Miles!

They’re not just crawling out of the wood work, they’re taking over! I can’t believe how many super low mileage cars of this era have sprouted up this week. Continuing that trend is this incredible low mile and perfectly stock (and more importantly unmolested) 1984 Rabbit GTi that Bring A Trailer has exclusive:

BaT Exclusive: 31k-Mile 1984 VW GTI Mk1

Considering the original miles of this car versus the other one featured recently, this is a no brainer. This car won’t be for sale for long.

Restored MK1 and MK2 GTi’s: These Are Real and Not for Kids

BringATrailer beat me to the punch featuring this great MK1 GTi for Sale on VWVortex (FL, $10.5k):

I had actually spotted this MK2 GTi, for sale by the same owner as the car above, this morning surfing the Vortex before work:

A bunch of whining kids start piling on about how high the prices are on these cars in both threads. While the prices are potentially record setting, I have actively been on the lookout for a clean MK2 GTi or GLi and examples of decent quality often have asking prices of $5k+. The fact that these are FAR nicer than the decent one’s I’ve seen, they should command a significantly higher asking. And while the kids would love to own these, the kids that grew up with these cars can see the value and can actually afford to buy them. I doubt they’ll sell overnight, but an enthusiast or a creative investor will eventually step up.
