How much should I be expecting to pay for a harlequin?

Recommended Posts

babyanez

I have always wanted a harlequin as they are so different and rare! How much are they actually worth in good or poor condition? I have seen a couple for sale the last year and the prices vary greatly and they always seem to stay on ebay for quite away as if people aren't paying the money that is asked..?

 

Thanks in advance

Overall you have to remember that's its still only a mk4 (6n) polo at heart, therefore I'd go off the price of a pretty clean 6n (around £1000-1200) which are getting harder to find and perhaps a little bit more for it being a harlequin.

 

That said, if there's any rust, anywhere, I wouldn't pay over £1k for it, no matter what it is, chasing the galloping tin worm across a 6n can be expensive...

Oh that one; yeah tbh he's dreaming a bit with £3k, perhaps £2k at a push but like I said you have to remember that the standard car its based on isn't worth much...

 

I've just had this with the mk2 Scirocco I've just sold to get my G40, quite possibly a unicorn car with it being the only mk2 Scirocco that had a RE2000 8V conversion done to the engine by GTi Engineering in the early 90's (makes it very rare indeed).  When I came to sell it, I priced it the same as a decent k-jet car as despite the extra bits, its still only a Mk2 Scirocco which isn't worth that much and got told continuously I was selling it too cheap...

By all means don't be deterred from getting one, I helped Rob put his together (in a limited capacity but still helped) which is in the mk4 build threads (https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/topic/347273-harlekin-rebuild-my-resto-mod-this-is-harleface/)  

 

The thing with the 6n's is that they're not likely to go up in value much as time progresses, if you were specifically looking for a polo to invest in, I'd be looking at mk3 G40's, mk1/2/3 saloons, mk1 polo or a very clean mk2 (there's a decent mars red one for sale on the FB group at the moment which could be a good shout)

When you look at what you can buy for 3k a 6n isnt a good deal regardless of paint

      Been having trouble with my 40 for a few months now which all started with the distributor filling with oil.since then it’s developed an annoying misfire which I have now worked out is happening in cylinder number 2.im just unsure as to what my next move is if I’m honest I’ve done a compression test it’s not great but not bad either.Any advice would be greatly appreciated

      hi guys, new here,
      bought my other half a rather loverly 2006 VW polo 1.2, loverly car, and a dam decent first car if you ask me!
       
      bought it from a mechanic friend who had recently rebuild the head with the polo GTI valves as it had suffered from the dreaded valve cracking symptom, all valves were replaced with the much better ones, he also replaced the timing chain, all gaskets and seals and all the oils and lubricants you can imagine, proper decent bloke, I bought it for what it cost him to rebuild the thing! only has 68k on the clock!
       
      anyway! drove it 270 miles home completely fault free and only used half a tank (result!) handed it over to my other half which you can expect she was bouncing off the walls (passed her test last week) and she clocked up another 300 miles in 3 days!
       
      unfortunatly it then developed a intermittent fault,
      the fault only occurs when the car is fully at temperature, and won't always happen, but when it does it's only at idle and it has to have been idling for at least 30 seconds to a min, it will then bring the engine warning light up and have a rough idle, cars shaking around, and goes into "get me home mode" the fault can be rectified by turning the car off and back on again, no issues restarting it ever, the engine warning code is only ever missfire on cylinder 3, as this is her first car I'm not messing around with parts, I have ordered 3 new coil packs (went with the upgraded ones from ebay, the blue ones?) took the spark plugs out and all 3 have a thin layer of white power on them (believe this indicates the combustion cycle is to hot) any pointers or things you guys know could cause this? car drives loverly with no hesitations even after you turn it off and on again after the fault
