A Volkswagen With a Coat of Many Colors: 1996 Golf Harlequin

It is not obvious whether they were stimulated by one clever ads of of Doyle Dane Bernbach for the VW Beetle in the 1960s or by the story of biblical of Joseph and their coat of different colors, but in the time of middle 1990s, Volkswagen make a decision to make few colorful cars. TTAC before looked at the Halequin Polo and Golf and you can check some more story at the link, but the small version is that in the year 1995 the automaker of German area make a decision to give a multicolored choice for people purchasing the Polo, VW’s hatchback slotted only below the Golf in the area of Europe, *NAH. The vehicle with the panel’s body of different shades becomes some of a hit, with the start production run of only 1,000 cars absolute to the 3,800 units. Almost certainly as of that self-effacing success, VW of America make a decision to set up the schemes of Harlequin color on the Mk III Golf for the subsequent model year.

 

They do not understand how many they designed to make. The factory of Puebla, Mexico which assembled them shifted out 264 Harlequins. Every car was first perfectly assembled in one of four basic colors (together with Pistachio Green, limited to the Harlequins) and after that at the last of the stroke, panels were opened and changed to different vehicles per a chart color ready in Germany which confirmed that no two contiguous panels will be the similar color. Even at the time Germans are impractical, they do it with accuracy.

With a complete build of only 264 cars, Harlequin Golfs are uncommon. So special, actually, that their earlier post on the topic publicity used images and shots owners have online posted. They are not just cars you come crosswise on a daily basis. When they marked this Harlequin at the Vintage VW Show of 2014 in Ypsilanti in this summer, they perfectly knew it was unique enough to snap, but they had not any specific idea that there were so some of them. A Wolfsburg Edition It is not. They are happy that they took the time as they can now demonstrate you some views of the wonderful car that you can have not checked before.

This wonderful car was sold by Jim Ellis VW, Georgia, in Atlanta. Possibly it is the same Pistachio Green Harlequin that is next from the right in the above photo. As per to the Harlequin Registry, the genuine owner flew from Michigan to Georgia to purchase it.

That association had someway been owed an oddly huge number of Harlequins. possibly VW thought it was a best thought to use them as courtesy and promotional vehicles throughout the Summer Olympics that year in the Atlanta or possibly it was a prize for Ellis having newly started up another VW store, but in any way Harlequin Golf did not become as famous in America as the Harlequin Polo was in the Europe.

Finally Jim Ellis Volkswagen had problem shifing the rather obvious cars and the dealer supposedly changed all around few panels, which describes the continuation of as a minimum one monochromatic Pistachio Green Harlequin in the Harlequin Registry.
