The rebuild of a 96 harlequin

We will be documenting (as we can)

23 Apr 2015

We will be documenting (as we can) the rebuilding process of a 96 VW Golf Harlequin edition.  Full respray, updated driveline and a refreshed interior..   All chassis parts will be refreshed with new parts.

This is chassis number 101 of 264 produced in 96 only as a Volkswagen promotional vehicle.

 

Our friends at RossVW have a great write up and history of the harlequin model.  Check them out! http://www.rossvw.com/harlequin/

 

Back to Project VRlaquin

We received the car in less than a desirable state.  At one time it had been resprayed (poorly) yellow over its colored panels.  The joker seats were in rough shape, it had the usual mk3 rotten floor boards, a fallen door hinge and crushed rocker. vrlaquin6

vrlaquin15    Looks alot like a part of a discarded “Golden Arches” campain right now.. Needs those other two colors..

Blue panels came from the paint shop next!!

vrlaquin11  Blue parts looked amazing in the sun, they should have used Chagall blue on more of the VAG line.  This harlequin is really coming together..
