1983 TO 1990

THE VERY first of the coil-sprung util­i­ties still re­tained the 2.25 en­gines from the out­go­ing Se­ries III, quickly re­placed by 2.5-litre units, then an 85 bhp tur­bod­iesel in 1986. Many are now retro-fit­ted with later Tdi en­gines. If not looked af­ter, they are prone to rust, but good ones defy the years and con­tinue to per­form, and there’s no short­age of spares. Prices are ris­ing – not least be­cause those over 25 years old can be legally ex­ported to the USA. BUYER’S TIP: Tdi up­grades make them more drive­able.
