VW Corrado VR6 Storm Mystic Blue 1995

Recommended Posts

Bought this car 5 years ago from an elderly gent in his 70’s who used this occasionally over his 7 year ownership.  My plan was to use it for a year or two as a running restoration and then to take it off the road and have a full respray and engine overhaul done at the same time.  Typically as I was taking it off the road priorities changed, work got busier and then I bought a 911, a car I had dreamt of owning since a kid.  Now with the potential of a house purchase looming it will be another few years before the opportunity to get near the car will take place.  With a heavy heart I have decided to sell it in the hope another enthusiast will finish it. 

Overview

The car is mechanically good, starts drives and everything works as it should.  I have swapped out the original windscreen wipers for TT arms and Bosch blades with a huge difference to how the windscreen wipers function (original arms supplied with car). I have fitted brand new Koni Sport Top Adjustable struts all around the car with H&R springs giving the car a more responsive yet compliant ride and not too indifferent to the original ride height.  I have fitted immaculate original BBS RC’s with excellent Toyo’s 205/40/17 tyres.  Again, a modification in keeping with the era. The original BBS solitude wheels will also be supplied with the car.  They are heavily corroded and will need refurbished if they were to be refitted.  The car is fitted with an Alpine Bluetooth Head Unit that can be used to stream music and take calls.  Up front 5.25 Rockford Fosgate speakers are fitted. The rear speakers are original and an optional mdf shelf with focal 5.25” two ways are fitted.  There is evidence of an amplifier being previously fitted, with the power supply and rca cables running up the passenger side.

The car is being sold at £6500 with no offers but will include all spares listed below plus any additional items I may find that are not listed.  This is my onlycondition of sale.  I will not sell spares separately.  If I don’t sell the car at the price advertised I will keep it with the spares that have been accumulated.

Modifications

BMA CDA carbon induction kit (original airbox supplied)

Stainless steel exhaust fitted (believe its Miltek but not checked)

TT Wiper modification

New headlight switch (bought x2 from Corrado Forum group buy)

Upgraded headlight loom (relays from battery to lights)

Koni TA’s and H&R springs fitted

17” BBS RC alloys and Toyo Proxes 205/40/17 tyres fitted- all tyres are excellent 6+mm

Good Bits

All switches and dials work as they should including sunroof

The interior although worn has not split or been abused.

I recently replaced the headlight switch with a Corrado forum new replacement item (I bought two so there is still another new one)  I did notice when I replaced the switch that the loom had been repaired.  It looks to have suffered the breakdown of the switch melting some of the insulation.  I would recommend replacing all of this back to good connectors/fusebox.

Bad bits

The paintwork isn’t in the best of condition.  It will be fine for a year or two but will need repainting to protect from corrosion

There are some small areas of rust. Generally stone chips but there is a small area at the front of the driver door side strip, passenger door at the upper rear seal next to the window.  A small patch on the sunroof. There is a wheel arch with a very small area showing corrosion.

Some scratches around bodywork

Nearside fog light stone chip

Roof lining starting to sag

Roof rack rubber lining has perished. I have removed this and still have it with the end caps. The main strips are badly cracked and cannot be refitted.

Miltek stainless exhaust (this is not a VR6 item! Recently found out that it is a 2” bore so more than likely G60 or 1.8-2.0 16V item

 

I've tried to be as honest as I can and remember everything.  I've got lots more pics if people want to see them unfortunately the size is limited on here.  Any questions please don't hesitate to ask.  I am not after a quick sale, I'm enjoying using the car and want it to go to the right owner.

 

Thanks for looking
