Golf 1 Diesel 1977 first run

81 ratings | 102187 views
First run after 18 years - Built in January 1977, 1500cc diesel, 5 doors, miami blue. The story is, I found this car in a barn. 2km from my own stockage of 2 other golf 1's. And its a diesel of 1977 (first year of the diesels). But it was standing there since 1989, so after 18years and an age of 31 year, the car started immediately! So, what you can see here, is an alive and kicking old golf! But there is still a lot of work to do... update: Here a picture from this summer: http://img293.imageshack.us/img293/7089/miamiblaueinsercopyiv8.jpg

Congratulation to this nice Diesel-Golf! There aren't many surviving Golf 1 from this year, because Volkswagen had until 1978 huge problems with rust on all cars.The diesel-powered ones from 1977 are very rare, because the new diesel engines had some problems in the first time. The Golfs with the small rear lights (wich which were installed until 1980) are very sought-after here in Germany! Btw: Excuse me for my faulty english but I'm german and I did my best :D

That just warms my heart, dude. It's nice to see that old thing so well-restored. My first car was a '79 Rabbit (the name of the Golf in North America) diesel. Slow as hell but cheap to run and loads of fun to drive! :)

I have a 1982 Rabbit Diesel. Have been running it on 75% Heating oil and 25% used engine oil. Still running after 4 years. The used engine oil needs to be pre-filtered to make sure all of the metal parts are removed.

This is quite interesting. I have a 87 VW Jetta which was abandoned on my property 11 years ago. It is a diesel too. The car ran but was towed by the tractor because a tie rod was broken. I don't think it will start. The battery must be drained plus the car was sitting outside in deep freeze, that can't be good for fuel. I think a tree is growing through it.

Oh year, a good old VW Golf Mk. I Diesel. Always start and run, never anything wrong with them.

Well, she's technical almost ok. But in a few years, it will be fully restored. At this moment, she's in a deep hibernation in the barn. If you want to see a picture from this summer? check the description of this video (more info)

Brings back memories of summer, driving around in my '82 rabbit 1.6d. Now the car sits in my yard, awaiting summer again. The sound of the na diesel is great.

i love the mk1 definetly the best vw ever after a vw samba van from the 60's ive got a '74 golf with a 1100cc engine wich is finally getting ready now
mmichaelc (10 years ago)
Nice find!! I just love the sound of a 1.6 diesel running. I miss my 1980 Rabbit 1.6 diesel 50 MPG and the sound of that motor there's nothing like it. Now I have a 2000 VW Jetta TDI which is a great car but not as much fun to drive as the old diesel rabbit
