1.0L SE with GTI engine swap - now on eBay, 99p no reserve!

Recommended Posts

2002 (52) Black Lupo SE with black interior. Over all the condition of the car is good given the age. Isn't immaculate, but is presentable, no big rust spots. Low mileage for the age of the car (82k).

It started life as a 1.0L but has had a 1.6 16V GTI motor and gearbox swapped into it. I still have all the paperwork from the GTI Polo too. Upping the HP from a pathetic 50 to a much better 125. The car has been lowered slightly as well to improve the handling. But not stupidly low so it's completely impractical and won't even get over speed bumps. 

The car needs a wiring loom (included but needs finishing off) and a downpipe to make it a runner. But everything else major has been completed. As with any project car there will probably be some odds and sods that need finishing up. The bumper/headlights/grille are all still there, they are just inside the car. 

Naturally because the car isn't complete it has no MOT and doesn't drive so would need to be trailered away. 

Will make a cool little sleeper when complete. I've had a GTI swapped Lupo and they are a ton of fun. Plus they still retain a solid 40MPG+ which is ideal as fuel isn't getting any cheaper..

The only reason I'm selling is I don't have the time to finish it and I need the space back on my driveway. 

Please text/whatsapp me as I am at work quite a lot so can't really answer calls. But I can reply to texts through out the day.

It literally just needs finishing and a downpipe acquiring from somewhere.

Cheap for what it is and a fun project for some.

I even have a pair of Polo GTI seats I can chuck in if someone wants to mess around and make them fit.

They should be bolt in. Same seat brackets aren't they?

Brakes? Uprated or 239mm up front and drums at rear, if I still lived in N/cle I'd be tempted

Kam decided it would be more fun with 239 and drums.

You may continue to think whatever you like.

I do not mind, you are old enough and wise enough to make your own decisions on things.

It only surprises me because they shared the same platform, but fair do.

The Lupo didn't share a platform with the Polo.

Maybe chassis legs?
