    Does anyone know this Caddy?

    Does anyone know this Caddy?

    Hi all Caddy experts I have been wanting a mk1 caddy for 20 years and finally have the opportunity to buy one, after looking at a load of rust buckets I thought I might try to buy one that is in good order or hopefully in good order to start. The one I am about to look at is meant to be a VW caddy sport but I was hoping to get some information to help prove this, I have a photo of the bulk head sticker and it has the right engine code and gear box code, I’ll try to attach this and I have the number plate J392 UTF

    Does anyone know anything about this caddy?

    Got pictures of it in fact from 2008

    Its a sport and was in good nick

    Is it for sale in Cranleigh? Mk4 golf seats? Owners called Mike?
    I've seen it in the flesh and its not all that great, the bulkhead needs replacing, its rusted and been covered in stone chip, and all the bodykits been covered in stone chip too

    Al's seen it in the flesh

    The engine and gearbox code doesn't prove its a Sport! You would need the PR codes for that, and it looks like they are missing or rubbed off that production sticker.

    JH engines with the 4S gearbox were fitted to later std Caddy's as an option. These are thinner on the ground than sports!

    I would need to see other tell tale signs to confirm if it was a Sport, but at the end of the day it doesnt really matter, a solid rust free Caddy is more desirable than any model

    EDIT: Blenki posted that pic whilst I was on the phone.

    That's it

    It's changed hands since and gone down hill, such a shame as it was a tidy caddy

    Thanks for the info, yes you are right about the owner who’s called mike. If the extra info is missing of the bulkhead sticker then how else do you know if it a genuine sport?

    This is the information so far from eBay but I haven’t seen it yet and not sure when the work was done.


    For sale is my VW Caddy Mk1 Sport, I have stripped it back to a bare shell and restored extensively at a cost of over £15,000. Since this restoration it has covered 25,601 miles. It has been serviced every 5,000 miles. The car has been fully resprayed, fully rebuilt engine and gearbox, all new bearings and bushings throughout plus new interior including Recaro heated leather seats. I systematically worked through all the vehicle replacing almost everything.

    I have just given the car a full service including air filter, oil+filter, fuel filter, distributor cap+rotor arm, plugs, gearbox oil change, brake fluid change, cambelt and auxiliary belt. I also put a full set of gloss Samco coolant and auxiliary hoses as one coolant hose had started to leak. I have no intention of selling something that will be unreliable, I want the new owner to enjoy it as much as much as I have.

    The reason I am selling is my life plan has changed and I am travelling around Europe in my motorhome and have nowhere to store the vehicle.

    I have all receipts in a folder with the original sales brochure to prove the work undertaken. My mission was to make it as reliable as a new car, which I achieved by using genuine or OEM quality parts. The restoration could have been completed for less money with cheaper parts but this would of sacrificed reliability and longevity. The car drives like a new vehicle.
