Volkswagen Rabbit 1981

82943 miles

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is pleased to present this 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit. The rising gas prices were a cause for serious concern among Americans during the ’70s and ’80s. As a result, the thirst for horsepower began to wane and demand for fuel-efficient vehicles began to grow across all market segments. Volkswagen spotted this market shift and got in on the action by introducing a vehicle that practically sipped fuel through a straw. That vehicle was the Volkswagen Rabbit Pickup, basically a Volkswagen Golf with a truck bed at the rear. The 1.6 Liter inline 4 is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission that made 78 horsepower and 84-lbs.ft. of torque when new. The bed is Rhino coated and the wheels are factory “snowflakes” wrapped in 195/60r14 B.F.Goodrich radial tires. The cabin features manually adjustable seats upholstered in brown vinyl and red trim on the dashboard, headliner and door panels. Amenities include an Blaupunkt AM/FM radio, air conditioning converted to R134a, and a locking glovebox. A two-spoke steering wheel frames VDO instrumentation including an array of warning lights flanked by an 85-mph speedometer and an analog clock. This tasteful 1981 Volkswagen pickup has just under 83k Carfax reported miles. If you are looking for a gas saver pickup, this is the Rabbit for you.
