TOPIC DESCRIPTION: Hey there polo enthusiasts, I'm Jonny and I am now the proud owner of a 1986 breadvan called Lesley! The only catch is that I've only just turned 16 so I can't drive her for another year but the aim is to get it looking and driving respectably by the time I can drive. Model: 1986 polo c breadvan (86c) Engine: 1.0l bog standard Suspension: Standard Brakes: Standard (very spongy!) Wheels and Tyres: Standard steelies and a set of mk2 golf steelies Exterior Styling: Oem roofrack which was an option on the car back in the 80s Interior Styling: Imaculate Standard interior ICE and Security: Very little of either apart from the oem tape deck and speakers Comments: It has 80000 miles on the clock and 3 previous owners (not bad for a 29 year old car). The engine is pretty good on the whole (apart from 2 breakdowns on the way down from Bristol to Falmouth but this turned out to be a loose ignition chord so all is well now) however the body needs some work, love and attention to get her to what I want it to be. Anyway here are some pictures of her: First I gave her a very good clean to see what I was working with Next I took off the font bumper the grill and I used back to black to restore the plastics Then I removed the bump strips Finally I bought a set of mk2 golf steel wheels for £40 off eBay The boot on breadvans are huge! I'm not sure if I'm actually going to put the golf wheels on the car or refurbish them then sell them on? Let me know what you think and what you think I should do to the car. Thanks for reading
