I hate to do this but I just don't have the time to run this car more than 2 or 3 times a year so here goes.

1975 Volkswagen Rabbit Race Car
This is a very rare first year Rabbit with a 1974 built date. The 1974 to 1976 rabbits are known as Swallowtail bodies due to the unique body lines that these years had. This car was bought in 1975 by Gray Wheeler owner of the Rabbit Hutch a VW water cooled performance shop that built SCCA Rabbit race cars. This was Gray's personal race car that was used to win numerous ICSCC races on the west coast from the mid 70's to the late 80's. The car was really fast and was able to run at the top of the ITB class full of Volvos and BMW's. This Rabbit is still set up the way the Rabbit Hutch built it.
1.6L built to ICSCC specs, Webber downdraft carb, long tube headers, 5spd trans, Bilstein adjustable with H&R race springs, disc brakes, full SCCA cage, OMP race seat, push button start, 5 point harness and original Panda Sport wheels. The body is rust free and straight.
This Rabbit is ready to race, runs great and a blast to drive.

Pictures are up on the craigslist add.
