Hello there! After a lengthy time away from Club Polo I return with a 2f Coupe! Always said I’d get one. ?? Some of you on here will remember me from a couple of years ago, I had a 1.4 8v 6n, then a 1.6 mk2 Golf and also a 1.4 16v 6n. All the threads are probably still on here! Story goes as such, I’ve been driving a 1.8t Leon and I’m facing the prospect of motorway miles, so I was actually looking for a diesel. Browsing the marketplace on Facebook and I see an advert for a 66k miles 1.3 Polo Coupe for £400. Messaged the dude and had a bit of a chat and decided it was best to go have a look. It belonged to an elderly lady who bought it brand new from the dealer and unfortunately recently passed away. Now, the paint/bodywork is really quite tatty and needs a lot of fixing up, but it’s all still very treatable. It desperately needs a new bootlid! The important thing is that, after a bit of haggling, I’ve bagged myself a one owner from new Coupe with only 66k genuine miles on the clock. Even still has the original dealership plates on it! The dealership doesn’t even exist anymore. It’s the 1.3 AAV (I think) motor with a 5speed 8p box. It was a little reluctant to start as the last time it ran was the beginning of August when it went for its MOT and its sat ever since but I coaxed it to life and drove it home and by the time it had warmed up it was running brilliantly! The plan for this week while I’m off work is to gut it and give it a good clean up inside out and go from there really. There’s gonna be a lot of tapping and coaxing dented pieces of bodywork back into shape as old dear (RIP) clearly liked driving into things. Long term id like to go down the AFH and bike carb route but for now I’m in no rush and am happy with the 1.3 motor! Here’s some photos!
