is the VW Gol 1000? The Volkswagen Gol 1000 is a model based on the Voyage/Fox It was never exported to North

The Gol 1000, began it’s in 1991 (the 1000 to the engine’s size, 1000 centimeters, or one litre) because the was giving emphasis to low-powered, engines. At the time, it was a really car (with areally cheap ) and it was more popular with people who didn’t have money to buy a decent car, let decent power, and it was popular business men as well. But, by VW created the 1.0L 16 valve with produced 65 hp, and the engine available to the wagon too.


Among the most differences between the Fox and Gol 1000

a hatchback rather than a or station wagon body

totally amber front signals

different rear due to the hatchback body style

no towing hooks

a cool gas tank filler cap

different interior door handles

I the Gol 1000 version is a base because there is no passenger rear view mirror, the look very simple, the also is very plain, and is no radio nor a radio antenna.

keep in mind that observations were made by me on the few pictures you see here, and from conversations with people Brazil. I have never seen a real VW Gol 1000.

info This is an e-mail I from Rindert Wesseling. got lots of info on the Gol 1000.


I liked your site on the VWs! I think it’s that people have an in these -umm- unamerican cars. Of any Fox-family member, the Gol must be the least suited for the US Its 4cyl 1000cc engine of would compare unfavorably.

You are it is is an economy version, stimulated by tax to enable less wealthy to buy a car after the Beetle (locally and derivatives became obsolete. are still ‘1000’ versions made of the current Gol, for other compacts from the big car in Brazil (Fiat Palio, Corsa, Ford Ka are the biggest They account for a substantial of new car sales.

Apart from the engine (which the brazilians don’t like, they are to a little more engine in cars than the Europeans), are really stripped bare! One of the models used to be the Ford (I don’t know if Ford sold these European in the US) with a 1000 engine, I one a few times, you have to shift a lot of short gears to keep

The current Gol 1000 comes a 8V or 16V engine, the latter pumping out which isn’t bad considering quality (mixed with and reliability considerations.

Who am I. I am Dutch, my is Brazilian and I’ve been a few times. We live in Holland My family had two VW Passat Variant in the US and Brazil), a ’75 and a ’83. I had two ’79 and ’80, a 1300 and a GTI. After that I had the Quantum for a while, a 1600 (yep, cars get pretty in Europe). At the moment I drive a Golf GTI 16V. So you see VWs have around me for some time.

to the Gol: Perhaps you already the following but here goes When VW switched to watercooled ’73, first came the 80/VW Passat platform, the Golf with transverse engine. The Passat got to be made in pretty much from the and got very popular as a reliable car and a performer. A smaller model was to fill the Fusca market, so chopped some of the back and the Gol was At first it had the aircooled beetle — but in the front, can you believe it. versions had a water cooled like its bigger brother. that time a sedan was made, the Voyage or Fox. I was amazed to see on US highways last

The newest Gol (it was redone for the ’99 looks pretty sharp and out (’99 Golf-like interior) and has the engine/driveline configuration of the original unlike its competitors which are all mounted layouts. If you were to it, I’m sure you’d the feel of the gearbox with its stubby lever.

I hope you will enjoy VWs for a time. Personally, I like the that a lot of these engineering are recognizable in other models, models, etc. In a sense, my has the same engine block as any US and all are derived from the first watercooled engines of the seventies.

Yes I did. Thanks!

von der Heyde Fernandes also me that in addition to the Gol 1000, options were available. The powerful of these was a 2.0L 16v Gol GTI; essentially like our American Golf GTIs. Again, a big thank you to Luiz Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for providing me the information about Volkswagens in
