Minty 1978 26k Volkswagen Rabbit For Sale

Here is a seemingly lost in time 1978 MKI Volkswagen Rabbit with only 26k miles.  This bunny has been for a sale a few times but has yet to find its forever home.

1978 Volkswagen Rabbit:

From the seller –

“1978 VW Rabbit C.
26k Original miles.
4 speed 8v gasser.
100% original 2 owner car.
Dakota Beige on brown.
New tires, OEM roof rack, MINT!

If you’re in Ohio or Florida you’ve probably seen this car. It’s also been up for sale a couple times here and once on Ebay. I’m trying to transition my “fun car” collection from two that sit in the garage to one that sees track time. More info and pics to be added, but for now it’s up again. The car was bid up to $9,000 on Ebay w/o my reserve being met. My personal feeling about old/classic/rare cars is they’re worth what they sell for at auction … or what someone is willing to pay for them of course. Therefore, I’m asking $9,000 obo.

Additional pics can be seen here: http://s282.photobucket.com/albums/k…%20Rabbit%20C/. Please feel free to PM me with any questions. Car is available to be seen locally by appointment.”

Yes, this is the same guy who owns the Golf Country we featured here some time ago.  This bunny is incredibly stock, kudos to the seller for respecting that.  The asking price of $9k is on the high side but these cars in this sort of condition do not come around very often.  You wind up paying for that exclusivity and it is just a matter of time until another enthusiast scoops this one up.

  1. The buyer pool even at this price (updated over a month ago) is going to be pretty thin. The seller needs to find that one person who thinks it’s worth 9 large to buy a pretty basic but ultra-low-mileage Rabbit that’s only good for occupying space in a garage and perhaps the occasional VW show?

  2. Hello Aron
    I have seen tthis MK1 it looks great. Would you be willing to take $8200 for it.
