Description for Volkswagen Golf 1985

This is an SCCA/ICSCC/NASA legal race car built and campaigned on the West Coast in GT. Super Production. Production. Radial Sedan and is now Vintage legal in the NW. This was never a street car - the chassis was a VW factory chassis shipped to be built as an ice racing car. This means there is no undercoating. no insulation. etc. (low weight). This car holds over sixchampionships and several track records in several different configurations. Lots of NW racing credentials and history. Raced at Portland. Seattle. Westwood. Sears Point. Thunderhill. others. If you want to own the fastest VW Golf on the West Coast - this is probably it. Car weighs approx 1800lbs. The engine is a Ivey Engines (Portland. OR) built VW 2. 0L. long rod (Carillos). JE aluminum piston. forged crankshaft. It has a rare Schrick 16V cross-flow head. cam bearings. 11mm camshafts. Schrick intake manifold w/ twin Mikuni 47mm side-draft carbs. header. The engine is dry-sumped. 3-stage oil pump. Oberg oil filter. inline mesh filter and JE micro filter. Ignition is crank-fired. solid-state Electromotive. This is a 220+hp engine delivering 190+ ft/lbs torque. The car is built for 30 minute sprint races so there is no alternator - ignition runs on solid cell battery. All Aeroquip hoses and fittings. Transmission is a GTI 5-speed w/ a 3. 94 R&P. 100mm CVs inside and outside. VW TDI Jetta hubs w/ oversized ball joints. Welded front diff - no Quaiffe. Bilstein coil overs w/ Eibach springs. Ground Effects caster/camber plates. 4-wheel disc brakes. Tilton pedals and master cylinders. detachable steering wheel. wired for radio and video mount on the roll cage. All gauges and switches work fine. Fire system in car and plumbed. Simpson belts and window net. 11 gal fuel cell w/ an XS Fuel pump and fuel filter. No major wrecks on track - driver door was hit once and driver's left rear corner was creased once - all repaired. Engine needs a complete refresh - not driven for over 8 years. The car was running when it last went into the trailer. There is a freeze plug out - thought it was completely drained but apparently not. My guess is the plug did its job but you'd want to magnaflux the block upon refresh. Car comes with 9 rims (we lost one because of a loose lug nut). spare transmission (fresh) and a variety of engine components including a spare head that could be built/sold. There's more to talk about and show but you'd have to come see it all. Call Greg - 503-957-7086 SERIOUS inquiries only. please. There's well over $35K worth of stuff (the engine was $8. 00 alone when I bought it in parts before the race build) here and hundreds of hours of work. It's a fair price for a cool car that will need some care and feeding and a lot of fun and history. We're retiring and moving on to new things. so it's time to let it go.
