Cotswold Classic Car Restorations Ltd are delighted to be the agents selling this unique, highly desirable vehicle on behalf of the current owner.
This limited edition ‘All White’ convertible GTi is very special indeed and for sale at exactly the right time of year to enjoy it to its full potential. Showing a genuine mileage of just 21,157 miles at time of consignment, supported by all MoT’s, this car has been the property of only a handful of owners, many of whom had a very close connection to Sir David Jason, the famous British Actor and Icon.
Sir David bought the car in May 1988 when it was one year old and registered it to Myfanwy Talog, his long standing partner. It was then transferred to Sidney Law, Sir David’s manager at the time. After nine years the car, still showing nominal mileage, was passed on to the godfather of Sir David’s children, John Williams. Whilst owned by John Williams, the car was awarded 140/140 points in the VW Owners Club GTi concours event; testament to the resounding quality of this car and the care with which it had been treated. The presentation of the car today is no different. Alpine White coachwork matches the hood, white bumpers, white interior and adjustable door mirrors, while the front spoiler and white painted alloy sports wheels give this limited edition car, elegance and presence.
The 1780CC transverse four-cylinder in-line engine with fuel injection performs faultlessly, and the driving experience as corroborated from VW literature, is exhilarating. This car is offered with UK V5C and a valid MoT certificate to August 2017.
This is not only a highly attractive, sporting and fun car, D755 CVV is completely matchless. With only 138 made, this is the only one in this superb ‘as new’ condition with its compelling heritage, the vast majority of which, is documented in an outstanding history file.
