The Volkswagen GTI is most certainly the people’s car that started the hot hatch craze and this 1992 Golf is a fine example of why.
This Rallye inspired green machine is more than compact brick wearing square headlights and fat arches.
This was the first all wheel drive VR6 powered Mk3 Golf conversion that was undertaken back in 1994 by the Vancouver based VW shop named Ron’s Parts.
In order to fit the drive train a custom bell housing had to be machined in order for the AWD transmission to fit up to the VR6 engine.
They then added the center tunnel from a Corrado and replaced the floor pan and gas tank from a European spec VW Rallye to make room for the driveshaft and rear differential, the key ingredients to the European spec Passat sourced Syncro system.
