1981 VW Rabbit Pickup

The included accident-free Carfax report starts in September 1988 and shows this Rabbit Pickup was registered in Connecticut with approximately 60,400 miles. The vehicle was moved to Pennsylvania in 1993 and appears to have stayed there through 2019, at which time it moved to New Jersey and later New York. A new, Pennsylvania-based owner was reported in November 2021. A number of attractive refurbishments, modifications, and upgrades have been added over the years. The selling dealer acquired the vehicle in May 2022 and has added less than 200 of the 74,700 miles shown. Two keys and an oil-change bundle are included.

The Rabbit Pickup was launched in the US in 1979 and produced at Volkswagen’s newly constructed manufacturing facility in New Stanton, Pennsylvania. This Volkswagen facility holds the distinction of being the first foreign automobile manufacturing plant in the US since 1931. The Rabbit Pickup was born of American ingenuity and was based on the front-engine, front-wheel drive Mk1 Golf platform. The Pickup was a back-to-basics vehicle offered with either a diesel- or gasoline-powered inline-four-cylinder engine with a manual gearbox. US series production ended in 1984, at which time the tooling was sent to South Africa.
