This page is for personal, non-commercial use. OK fine. Well then, see that giant, almost comical lift? It also has "Syncro" four-wheel drive. Now, for those of you not in the know much as I was until a short while agothe Country Syncro 4x4 was a second-generation Golf built as usual on the VW assembly line in Wolfsburg, Germany. The select lucky few were then sent to Graz, Austria, where all the awesome bits were added by Steyr-Daimler-Puch, the industrial outlet that has made some pretty bad-ass commercial and military vehicles over the years.
Although there had previously been all-wheel-drive Golfs sold in Europe, the Country began life as a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show and entered production after a positive reaction from the public and press. The car you see here on Bring a Trailer is not stock, as the original 1. The original five-speed manual has also been replaced by another five-speed unit, while a lightened flywheel was also installed.
That Volkswagen hasn't wheeled out a new version of the Golf Country is an absolute dereliction of duty by product planners.
People are gobbling up Subaru Crosstreks and basically anything that's lifted and has all-wheel drive. Hell, teal is even popular again though it certainly never left my heart. We get it.

I was lucky to discover an engine with only miles powering a Subaru Outback at a Subaru specialist in Chesterfield, and snapped that up for the conversion.
The van is completely rust free, and everything works as it should. It is left hand drive, as all genuine Westies of this vintage are.
Sadly it is time to part ways with our original VW Westfalia that we brought with us to England from California.
Originally it spent most of it years in the desert of Arizona from there it moved to the sunny dry climate of southern California where we purchased it and brought it to San Francisco. Body is in excellent condition.

MOT with no advisories until July Approximatelykilometers. Correctly registered as a Motor Caravan on V5.Great guys to work with. Returned phone calls and text messages promptly. Easy to work with, no pressure. Good selection of clean cars too. Quickly responded. Unfortunately the car had a deposit on it but was told if anything changed I would be notified.
Bill of AP Vintage Motors went the extra mile and even provided a virtual test drive. Class act veteran! Give these guys a look if you are searching for a well built classic! Couldn't be happier with the no hassle car buying experience. Milad was super helpful through the car buying process and went over and above to take car of things on the vehicle before I purchased, with no charge to me and also arranged to have the vehicle delivered to me!
Very simple process! I would buy from them again! They were very nice to work with, explained all about the car and it's history, told us of a problem that they were currently working to fix, very upfront about everything. Overall, a very good experience and we decided to purchase the car. Wish all dealers were like them. Can't wait to drive it home!! Our experience with AP Vintage Motors was great. We worked with Tim Bolton and have no complaints at all.
Smoothest car buying experience of my life. They were receptive to my needs. Very fair. Shane and Tim were great with which to work. I will be back when I am in need of another vehicle.
